Really if Arrington would have not punked out when Taylor started coming he might have picked it up. Taylor doesnt get a clean shot on him, Arrington cowers away isntead of fighting for it, but that's fine -- Im glad they didn't get it!
Sure why wouldn't they throw? They did in just about every other short yardage situation.

2 yards is equivalent to 5 yards when your running game is as bad as theirs.

How many times this year have people here ripped on our playcalling for throwing on short yardage? Yet Denny Green made a "good call"??

Well, somebody has been complaining about throwing it too much in short yardage situations.

In fact on the year I think the Skins have thrown it much more than they've ran it on 3rd and shorts until just recently, so I'm not sure why people would want us to throw it more. :confused:

Matty, I think maybe you meant to say how many times have people complained about us running in a short yardage situation-such as the Bucs game, yet not when Green does it.

Not only that but we run with Portis, they run with JJ Arrington. LaVar Arrington would probably average more yards rushing per game than JJ.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

don't the players believe we should run the ball on 3rd and short most of the time? i think i read that several players call it our "bread and butter."

i think that if it is our "bread and butter", we need to run it on 3rd and short more often than pass. i think it's just more pronounced when we get stuffed- a bunch of people are going to yell "conservative."

if you do it more often than not, you can surprise the opposing D with a rollout b/c they aren't looking for it (ala Royal last weekend).
