Lightbulb Re: 5 Things Jim Zorn Should Change Right Now

i agree,lets use more shotgun formations, spread the field with at least three wideouts and one tightend,this way you have cooley in single coverage and also then you can maybe run the ball better with portis,because there only woulbe one or two backers in the middle of the field.and maybe zorn can be a little more creative in the play calling and use a little wildcat formation, because we are not a power offense that,s for sure....

Bring in Jarmon for Andre Carter, make Orakpo an every down DE, and move Wilson to linebacker.

On Offense, demote Betts and Cartwright and make Mason the #2 and Aldridge the #3.

Make Marko and Kelly Malcomb the #1 and #2 WR and move Moss to the slot. Maybe he can run up-field without falling down, unlike ARE. Make ARE #4 and DT#5.

Let someone else return punts.

And oh, bring in Collins SIKE!

but....thats not in the play book......?

playing on the whole molding your scheme to fit the talent they have theory.

Re: 5 Things Jim Zorn Should Change Right Now

I watch the Skins and teams stack the box. I see other games and everyone looks spread out. Is it by design, or Buges blocking scheme or what ever but why is it that when I see Dallas the whole O-line even looks spread apart by about a foot, even the Giants O-line looks this way, other teams O-line looks this way, but when it comes to the Skins it looks like we are in goal line formation all the time and we are not spreading out the defense. Is there a reason we are always in a bunch formation and not sorta spread out or not trying to spread out the defense in order to create lanes for running?

Re: 5 Things Jim Zorn Should Change Right Now

Zorn has called a lot of shotgun for JC, even though Zorn doesn't like it. There have also been a lot of 3 & 4 wr sets (though in many cases Cooley is a wr in the slot) in these 3 games. I don't think the I formation was run that much either, usually Sellers lines up behind one of the tackles.

I'm just saying this cause several posts on here indicate that we're a power running team. I'd say just a bit, but not for the bulk of the plays.

If he's going to be fired anyway, does it really matter?

So, essentially, he (Zorn) is seeing that JC runs the offense better in the shotgun and used it more against Detroit....got that.

The team has been using 3-4 WR sets but that's to include Cooley. I'm not an NFL coach but the TE is usually covered by a LB. In other words nothing is happening in the game plan that is changing the defensive line up. Cooley is usually in on almost every play offensively which means a LB is there to cover him. If it is a run the same LB simply lets Cooley run past him and he takes up a running lane. But....if the team were to take out Cooley and put in another WR would create a mismatch forcing the defense to take out their LB who is closer to the line and inside the box and make them use a CB to cover the WR spreading out the defense maybe creating a lane for the RB to run in. Or simply move Cooley out to a WR spot which forces the LB out of the box.

As for the I formation maybe the coach's saw something they thought they could exploit. It just didn't work. I still go back to ...why are we always in a bunch formation on the O-line. It almost looks like we are in max protection or goal line protection. It's not hard to figure out that if a team is in this formation and has no out side run capabilities then I would simply stack the box. That alone stops the run or reduces its effectiveness considerably. Then all we have to do is play the back field well. Double team the #1 WR and float one safety to help the other CB's.

Maybe I'm being an idiot but it looks more and more like piss poor planning against the Rams whome we were supposed to beat and Detroit whome we should have beaten.
