The Offense Was Too Conservative

I'm sorry, but that was a sad excuse for an offense. I tend to blame it on the conservative nature of the game-planning. What do you think?

I think fans should stick to cheering and let the coaches coach.

So I guess we shouldn't even discuss things here. I suppose we should just act as a conduit between Gibbs and the fans a la Extremeskins.

Re: This Offense Is Too Conservative

I'm sorry, but to get 3+ turnovers and lose is a disgrace. To get the kind of offensive performance we did in the first half is inexcusable. 3 first downs? 3 first downs? We weren't going against the Bucs, so we can't blame it on the defense we were playing.

Our defense limited one of the best offenses in the league to 20 points at their home. With the turnovers we should have been able to seal the deal.

Yes the offense has stunk the last 2 weeks, however nothing is ever as simple as fans like to think. Injuries take their toll on even the best of offenses and we have had more than our fair share.

We weren't playing the same way. The last two weeks our offense has been playing what was often called, "full flaps offense." I agree. Moreover, we can't play the conservative run-always offense when our best run-blocking guard and star tailback are injured. Back then, it might have worked. With those injuries it wouldn't.

By the way, I was the one who was saying that we were a good team when everyone else had given them up for dead. Remember the "We are better than a .500 team" thread I started?

I'm not going to pout about this game. You can pout if you want. Yes I'm disappointed, but I'm not going to be one of those fans who insist craping on Joe Gibbs.

If you're saying that the games weren't being coached the same way, you're flat wrong. If you're saying that the players aren't quite executing like they were a few weeks ago, I would agree with that.

Look, I don't want to start an argument. I will keep my posts civil.

I'm not pouting. I started a thread about the conservative nature of our offense. I also have posted in other threads what a fantastic job Gibbs has done with this team. Anyone who has read my posts over the past few weeks knows that I have given the coaching staff a lot of credit.

That said, I'm not going to say everything is perfect, because it is not.

Re: This Offense Is Too Conservative

It's funny how easy it is to point the finger at the coaches and the playcalling.

It's the age old debate, what's the problem, the playcalling or the execution?

All I know is when we were shoving the ball down people's throats the playcalling wasn't a problem.

They were being coached the same way. I totally agree. But, as I said earlier, when your best run-blocking guard AND you star tailback are either out or totally banged-up, I think the game-plan should change.
