Quick Thought On #2


RYNE

Recommended Posts

In my opinion the #1 problem with our passing game especially on 3rd down is the oline not holding up long enough. But I think another thing is Ryan being a little to passive. On 1st and second down I can understand this and not wanting to turn it over. Its a smart move to play dink and dunk with the under wr or back. But in certain situations such as 3 and 12 on our side of the 50 yard line doesn't it make sense to always have either Roddy or Julio on a deep pattern and if nothing else is open for Ryan to put some air under it and let one of those two try and make a play? I mean roddy and julio are big boys who can jump. I'd much rather see that and get a pick down on the 20 or 15 yard line then just throw a 5 yard pass to a back who gets tackled anyways 7 yards short of the first down. That doesn't do any good. We just punt anyways the next down. I know its never a smart idea really to just throw a ball up for grabs, but I think in those kinds of situations it make more sense with the WR size we have to try and make something happen rather than just giving up and coming up 8 yards short. Thoughts?????

i dont understand why we dont just throw the ball up in the air and have our WRs fight for the ball. all the elite receivers go and get jump balls. and im sure White and Jones are capable of doing so. i dont know if its Ryan being gun shy or our offense is designed to not take those kinds of risks. we dont even need the Oline to hold up for very long if Ryan throws some jump balls.

Every other team does this at least once a quarter. I have really never seen us try this. I just don't get it. What about in the last few min of sundays game. Instead of tossing one up for julio, ryan is just looking at the checkdown and getting sacked. Yeah julio or roddy were probably covered, but why not take a shot? We were beat anyways. I don't get it

I don't know either, but the team knew that we were going into game 1 with two young linemen... it wasn't a surprise. We needed to adjust the game plan for that and we didn't. There were a few plays were the line almost got Ryan killed, but he usually had the same amount of time as Cutler did. My younger brother sat there and counted from the 2nd quarter on most times. Play calling and/or Ryan must share most of the blame this time.

I'm not a coach, but we should have pounded the ball against the Bears and hoped it was enough to set-up play action. It would have been a lot less embarrassing anyhow. XD

That's the pansy-azz bs that burns me up the worst. If you're getting your brains beat out, just go for it. No more punting on 4th down, no more dinks, do something to try to turn things around, if not to salvage the game you're playing, but to see if you can come up with something for the next game. Going out like the Falcons did against the Bears is the chicken-sh1t way to die.

I agree 100 percent pokersteve. It was disgusting to me at the end of that game we continued to just dump it off and punt the ball. Even on the very last drive we still didn't even try and throw one up. We were beat anyways. Why not just throw one and try and have someone make a play

I watched Matt in college, dude has that in his game, he's being conditioned to avoid taking risks. Mularkey's interview and past (see the articles in the other thread) prove such. It's very disturbing. It hinges on Smitty keeping this up. I love Smitty, but if this keeps up, he's going to get turned on.

fitz and calvin johnson use their size to go up and get the ball and usually make the most out of the opportunities given matt needs to give 84 n 11 the same chance
