The Value of Play action




Watching Sunday's action I was a little confused.I have given JDR the benefit of the doubt, but what I see on the field doesn't jibe with what I've been told.I have spent the afternoon watching Dirk Koetter's offense and what I've seen is too vanilla to win in the NFL.

  The play action passing game was non-existent. We are a running team first and I realize this. But the play action pass has to be a larger part of the offense in order for us to be our best. The running game can open up more chances for our passing game for obvious reasons. Giving the ball to mojo enough times to hurt a defense will open up chances to throw down field when they are looking to stop us. But ,at the same time, the threat of us throwing down field should cause the D-line to hesitate long enough for our O-line to get a block.

  The running game Sunday became less effective as the game wore on.IMHO this happened because the D-line quit worrying about PA passes and concentrated on stopping mojo and Karim when they received the hand-off.If our running game is to be all that it can be then we must instill that hesitation in the D-line as to whether the play is a running play or if the hand-off is a diversion. JDR has stated the Luke is our best chance to win on Sunday. If that is really the case, they should take the training wheels off and let Luke run the offense we have seen over the last few years. After all, if this was really a football decision, then he can certainly handle it.
