Passing The Ball!

I know that our running game has not changed from last season but why the hell are we running more than we are throwing since the passing game is new for us. If you watch Minnesota in the preseason and they are basically just passing on every down to provide some confidence for their quarterback Jackson since they know they can run the ball. I just don't understand Jim's reasoning but I believe he knows what he is doing. This west coast offense is not easy to learn which is why we need all of the practice we can get in the preseason for our receivers to get accustomed to. What do you guys think?

Re: Passing The Ball!

Each week they make a list of things to work on. Maybe the running game, and the types of passing routes they are running this week is what was on this week's list.

Re: Passing The Ball!

You cant just throw it all the time, even if you can run the ball. You still have to throw some runs in there to keep your Rbs going. You dont want to be like the patriots were the continously throw the ball, and when they tried to run they didnt to all to well. While everyone would love to throw everyone down, you have to run to mix it up and keep the deffense honest

Re: Passing The Ball!

I agree with you. I really didn't like Zorn's playcalling at all tonight.

Re: Passing The Ball!

In real games in starting in September I agree that we need to run the ball and pass it to to become a balanced team. In the preseason you are supposed to be working on things like I don't know a "NEW OFFENSE". The running game is the same but the passing game is new so we need to find a rhythm before the season starts. This is starting to remind me of Saunders/Gibbs preseason of not showing everything and using only 2% of the playbook. We need to practice this offense in the preseason to become more efficient for the regular season.

I like that he is willing to go after what he is being given by the D! Play calling wasn't that bad but for a droped pass here and there, missed block and a QB[Collins] that is having a hard time getting to know Coach Z's O didn't help. As the season gets going and Portis,Cooley, Moss,El and other WR's get in there I really think this O is going to fly! Coach is going to hit anyone any where and as much as I love Gibbs this isn't our fathers O! In any given game the run is going to be working and others the pass because D's come in and try to take away what you do best. Believe me come september they will be up in the box to stop the run and Portis untill Campbell and coach Z makes them think other wise!

Re: Passing The Ball!

Re: Passing The Ball!

Barring a crazy barrage of injuries Colt is not going to play this year. Collins on the other hand is one injury away from being the starter so he definitely needs the work more than Colt.

Re: Passing The Ball!

Id like to split all of Devine's playing time between the top three quarterbacks. Keep Devine at practice, because we all know theres really no battle with him trying to unseat Brennan as our third.
Also cut Frost now, Brooks needs the work.

Exactly. The problem was not the play calling.

They need to hit the passes they throw, especially in the red zone. We moved the ball well between the 20s.

Re: Passing The Ball!

Why are people complaining about the playcalling? It's freakin' pre-season!

Re: Passing The Ball!

Right. Not only that, scrub Devine threw at INT in the end zone. We put together quite a few really nice drives. Now, if during the first half next week our starters can't put anything together, THEN I'd start getting worried.

Re: Passing The Ball!

Honestly, I thought we passed more than we ran while the first string offense was in. I love to see us throw the ball and I think JZ (Jim Zorn) did a good job at splitting up the pass and run attack.
