Our offense CANNOT score!!!

Our team looks pretty decent right now, and, to be honest, they are a good team. We are 7-6 and in good position to win a wildcard spot in the NFC. We are even on a two game winning streak.

So, what's my problem you ask? Well, I finally noticed something: WE NEVER SCORE MORE THAN 20 POINTS!!! So far, we have only managed four, count em, FOUR 20 point games on offense. To throw more gas on the fire, we are only averaging 19.1 points a game (including the 50+ point San Francisco performance. If we take out the San Francisco game and substitute a 20 point performance, our average points scored is down to 16.6 points a game.

People have been complaining about our defense lately. WE ARE 7-6 AVERAGING ONLY 19.1 POINTS PER GAME! This is especially amazing considering our -7 turnover ratio.

SO, what's the problem on offense????

-Is it the playcalling?
-Is it any particular players?
-Is it sheer bad luck?

Whatever it is, we definitely have to fix it if we want to have any chance of being a legitimate playoff contender.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

not sure what the problem is... but let's count our blessings that we're over .500 with that turnover ratio. i think it's a testament to the team that the record isn't worse with that ratio.

I'd have to go with us only having 1 real threat.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

lack of true No.2 reciever

and sucks to say, but not enough improvement on the offensive line.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

I will agree with Daseal on that.

Things I liked:
- Passing to Royal after the half
- The one throw to Taylor Jacobs
- The runs where the guards pulled and the counter tosses (both big gains)

Things I didn't like:
- Targeting in on certain people too much (spread the wealth!)
- Too many one and two receiver sets (*note- I think these sets can work, bot <b/>ONLY<b> when you spread the ball. Otherwise, the defense only has to key in on 2 or 3 people)
- Having Portis run too much. I think having someone spell him a little more often would really help. It would give Portis more energy for the runs he did take, making him more productive when he IS in.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

what i think would help CONSIDERABLY is replacing Royal on the line for Sellers in the backfield.

i know it's not very Gibbsian, but Portis THRIVES on having a fullback in front of him, he has excellent ability to know which way to cut after a lead block (ie Denver). and frankly Royal's value as a receiver, pass blocker, OR lead blocker is pretty questionable.

Sellers just needs to work on pass protection; his value as an impromptu receiver and people hitter has already been established.

I think we are clearly a better outside running team than inside and have been for two seasons. We need to start running the stretch more and we should see that pitch with Thomas and Cooley blocking at least three times a game. It goes for huge yards every time.
I think besides today Brunell has done exactly what they wanted him to do. Be smart and not throw ints. Basically keep us out of trouble. This is again where our lack of a quality QB weapon is hurting us. Brunell has done exactly what they wanted but we need someone who gives ur coaches confidence to actually run a more open offense.
I have no problem with the game plans because they seem to fit the talent we have. The lans are simply no frills and aren't going to get us huge points.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

btw, the one offensive TD we did manage this game was with Portis literally HOLDING ON to Mike "Trailblazer" Sellers' jersey...

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

Not having a 2nd WR to take advantage of double-teaming of Moss is hurting our pass game. Also, I can't remember the last time when we've attempted a long pass on consistent basis. Arizona practically had 8 men front the whole game. Passing game should have stepped up and they didn't. I think it's a combination of lack of #2 WR and too conservative playcallling.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

Turnovers kill drives and therefore kill scoring chances.

Playcalling didn't turn the ball over today.

Re: Our offense CANNOT score!!!

man we won the turnover battle for only the forth time this year and that is why we won today. this year in those games we are 3-1 and does anyone wonder why all great coaches stress it? Why Gibbs stresses it?
Gibbs is 104-15 in games in which he wins the turnover battle.

Our defense has forced 9 turnovers the past 3 weeks and that is a great sign in my eyes. IF we keep this up we will be a great team
