bdog 29 Posted November 23, 2015 Share Posted November 23, 2015 All season the fans have been calling for us to use Roddy more. The calls became deafening enough that our coaches were asked about it in press conferences. Shanahan basically responded by saying he's all about forcing it to Julio and that Roddy isn't what he used to be. So what does he do on the first few plays of the game? Force it to Roddy. That whole sequence was just Shanahan basically saying, "This is what you wanted right?" We didn't mix in the running game or even target other guys and for someone who's been so enamored with Julio, I don't think this is a coincidence. What really drives this home to me is the fact that once again, we barely looked for Roddy after those first 3 plays. If those plays were indicative of Shanahan trying to better integrate Roddy into the offense, he would have gotten looks throughout the game. Instead, it was more forcing things to Julio and trying to make skillet hands Hankerson look like a legit receiver.Dan Quinn looks like he'll be a decent head coach but hiring Shanahan was a terrible decision which looks even worse now. That level of arrogance shouldn't be tolerated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
