Smile 1st and goal

Hopefully I wont be expunged from this website for posting a silly thread such as this... But I wanted to try and deviate from all the pessimism floating around lately and couldnt resist. What do you think about using different personel in goal line situations? (ie. the Patriots, Bucs) I think we could get creative here. Maybe using a linebacker as a reciever on a bootleg pass or handing the ball off to Cooley and let him smash his way in? What do you guys think? Maybe I've been playing too much ESPN 2K5.

Re: 1st and goal

What are thinking, running the ball or catching it. I think that we would have better chance of throwing a pass to someone. Maybe Lavar or even Sean Taylor. It has to be a sick athlete for it to really be effective. Im concerned that we dont use Clinton the way we should at the goal line. I mean, for crying out loud, someone tell Joe that this boy is an athlete, and can catch the ball too.

Re: 1st and goal

I agree Monksdown, we should throw to Clinton more. I am suggesting pass or run...Sean Taylor would be a good option, he's tall, physical and aggressive. I could see him coming down with the jump ball.

BossHog...Madden was $50 when it came out. 2K5 was the best budget game ever created, not just sports-budget game. I also favor the logistics in ESPN, instead of Madden where you can drop back 40 feet from the pocket and throw an 85 yard touchdown. That's silly.

Re: 1st and goal

I'd like to see Taylor at running back on the rare occassion.

Honestly - I'd just be happy if we didn't run it up the middle three times on goal line situations.

Who- Sean? Are you kidding. He's 6'3 230 lbs and he's faster than 98% of the linebackers in the entire league. Im not saying he should run the ball. He is most definitely not an elusive runner. but he is a ball hog when it's in the air. He's built like a small recieving tight end, but faster than any of them.

BossHog...how did you go from Taylor catching a first and goal pass to Daunte Culpepper returning punts? I started this thread for some positive feedback, not to upset you "serious gamers".

The only coaches that would entertain this "nonsense" win superbowls. Like Chicago with the fridge. Tampa Bay with Sapp. And oh yeah, didnt a defensive player score a touchdown on offense this super bowl. And wasn't the game only won by 3 points. Good try.

Re: 1st and goal

Hey Bosshog, check out this Sportsline's rankings on linebacker's right now. It's very odd where they put Antonio. Sorry Matty, this may bog the server a bit.

Re: 1st and goal

I think this is a great question, somthing all my buddies and I talk about during the season. We need a smashmouth fullback,halfback ala Sam Bam Cunningham. Bettis would work but I think he will be resigned in the offseason by the Steel boys. Need a guy that is use to holding the ball as a fumble could be real pivotal. Thats why they throw to most of these guys so that they risk of losing the ball is taken away. This is Buges and the boys and smashmouth is there game. Good motivation for the O line to move 2-3 yards.

The guy from West Virginia comes to mind except I forgot his name. Big and strong and would fit the bill perfectly

Re: 1st and goal

Are you sure that the fridge wasnt 230 lbs? No listen, im not totally quacked out of my mind. I just like the idea of throwing in some wrinkles in the red zone, whatever they may be. I would prefer to use offensive talent, but where is that talent? Cooley? I think it's time we looked into a tight end. I hear uva has a good one coming out this year. Is it Heath something or other?

Im just interested to see all of the hype surrounding lb's way beneath him. And it gets me concerned that we are not more willing to sign him. I wonder what he is asking for?
