Thread: Clock Management and Play calling

  1. #1

    Clock Management and Play calling

    We need plays that get us down the field on ball possession's in under 3 minutes and can score TD's...
    Screw this crap of holding on the ball for a long time in one possession..we cannot even score...

    The play calling we have been doing doesn't do that!!!!!

    We need to look at the other teams that keep putting a lot of points on the board and heck steel those plays and practice them.
    Why? Because our play calling sucks!!!!!!!!

    Defense needs to have rest...

    Screen Draw Screen Draw are the only plays in the playbook it seems...

    Steleers are missing Mike Wallace...

    I don't think the Steelers miss Mike Wallace. Between Brown, Sanders, Cotch, Moye and Heath, we have more receiving talent that we did in 2005.

    I think they miss competent play calling, competent clock handling and an offensive line that isn't cursed.

    BA and Wallace..

    Wallace wasn't anything special with Haley last year.

    +1

    Wallace and AB84 would be great 1-2 punch with BA calling plays. Team would have no issues going 80 yards when BA was playcalling.

    D has plenty of time to rest after they let the other team go 93 yards on one play.

    Its exhausting running in one direction away from the actual play.

    The first play on O the Steelers went deep and Ben had a terrible throw. Can you imagine if the Steelers had scored on their first play after the long TD run. Would have totally deflated the Raiders' momentum. Ben has to be able to hit that throw. I LOVED that play call. But then, it was as if that first call mentally exhausted Haley and he couldn't get creative the rest of the day.

    There was another play where Ben got sacked - he had a wide open Will Johnson coming out of the backfield and there wasn't a Black jersey within 20 yards of him. Ben's got to see that and dump it off.

    That has been and will always be Ben. He could have the best o-line in the league and he'd still get sacked 35 times / year.
