Audible

I title the thread with that one simple word, because I am positive that Joe Gibbs has forgotten the term.

Am I am the only that sees ten people in the box, and they still run it up the middle. The play calling is horrible. If theres ten in the box, dont run the ball, call an audible. I dont mean do like Spurrier and call 8 a play, but be smart about it. A lot of the time when they line up, not only do I know what we are calling, but its clear that it is not going to work.

An audible could be huge for us in making more first downs and scoring more points.

Re: Audible

gibbs doesn't like audibles cause they can result in penalties... so running into a stacked line and wasting a down is a good solution if i've ever heard it

I thought it was REALLY strange too, i mean seattle wasn't even trying to hide it.

Re: Audible

Ive never seen as many people in the box as I saw today. It was crazy how many of them stacked the line and yet we just ran right into them.

We did finally run some play action. But we still dont threaten the opposing team to play back on us, and until they do they will stack the box and stifle portis.

Re: Audible

I couldnt agree more,thats what I just said in the Brunell thread,so much for Moss stretching the defense,Brunell's an experienced qb,he should be able to recognize the situation and call an audible,who calls the plays anyway? is it Gibbs or somebody else?whoever it is might want to turn it over to somebody else

Re: Audible

My guess is we'll see more of them as Gibbs and Brunnell get comfortable. You have to be able to audible in this league. No two ways about it.

he stuck ith brunell because it wasnt all his fault. Just like it wasnt with ramsey when he came in and sucked to. No nfl qb is as bad as they loko in gibbs system. Gibbs needs to learn how to call plays again. Im not in love with brunell but hes not as bad as gibbs makes him looks.

Its very obvious that Gibbs is finally starting to listen to Musgrave. We looked like a real west coast team at times today and it was working. Hopefully we'll do it more. But then Gibbs to over teh play calling again with 5 straight runs...we had a lead, why would we try to score....

Re: Audible

the skins offense moved the ball consistantly down the field on the seahawks defense today,the play calling was fine and there was no need to call audibles, the skins had over 100 yards rushing on them.

Re: Audible

the only reason the game was close is because the skins defense had a few breakdowns today. the skins offense played pretty darn good

If the play calling was fine then why was it always third and long? yes ,brunell did a great job of converting 3rd downs. But if you run twice, and its 3rd and long...youre not doing something right. Portis averaged just over 3 a carry again. Pathetic. No running back can run through a 9 man front. The announcers even laughed and twice put up numbers counting the number of defenders in the box, and they still ran it up the middle.

If gibbs makes a good pass play, hes going to jump like a school boy then hand it off. Hes very predicatable. There was one or two drives that we ran the west coast offense and it was working great. We just have to do that more. You can almost tell when its musgrave or gibbs calling the plays.

Re: Audible

those 3rd down routes were prefectly laid out, someone was always open and Mark zipped it to them.

but yeah Brunell can hold on to it too long just as much as Ramsey does. that flea-flicker could've done real damage but Brunell pumped and waited for the corner to fall or something before he threw it deep. can't just be late in the 4th quarter Mark.
