Thread: play calling

    play calling

    So, we run like 5 running plays in a row on the second possession, then, when we do throw a pass, it is a straight drop back, with down and distance that would've supported play action. We get into the red zone, run 2 positive run plays, again, 3rd and goal from the 3, manageable for a play action boot pass. Play calling is like shooting pool. You make your shots but you have to be looking ahead and setting up following shots as you go.

    3 possessions, nice stats, 3pts. The defense is shutting Cleveland down, for now. The offense is letting them hang around. We have to get a flow going with play call and execution.

    To many runs, crapy play calling

    Not too many runs, we have a good YPC avg. Just poor calls according to situation. On 2nd and 3, with an 11 yard run and a 7 yard run back to back, we pitch the ball straight back, 5yds deep to Bell. Then on 3rd down we finally go PA but try to throw a hitch and go route, when we needed something higher percentage to try and keep the drive going.

    Embarrassing is right. No concept of situational football with this play calling.

    Agreed. The formula to win is get the big lead then start running and wearing down the defense. You can't pound the rock from the first quarter then let the other team score TDs while you're draining clock.

    The Steelers have played 22 quarters of football this season,they have scored 3 or less points in 12 of them. With the talent they have on offense this inexcusable.
