yes, I agree to try to take advantage of their depleted corners but when the run was obviously working (at least 8 ypc it seemed all game) why stop? Incompletes on first down just create a hole that you have to throw out of and Ben's touch was obviously off. 3rd and 2 and you throw? Just infuriating...
oh well, had a good run and very positive for next year.
My point was that it almost seemed like we ran the hell out of the ball ONLY when their CBs were both out. We should have been running the ball all game and then when both CBs were out for a while, we should have smelled the blood and went for the throat.
Yeah we tried it once to Wallace and it was a bad pass (or possibly bad adjustment to the ball in the air by Wallace - I couldn't tell), but that doesn't mean the play wasn't open.
The lack of TEs and RBs in the passing game was also noted by me, but Arians seemed to really want the bubble screen to Wallace to work because Wallace is best when he's standing still at the LOS rather than going deep. *EYEROLL*
As for spreading the D out and then running, I'm actually not a fan of that for this game. That's great when you can't just line up and run it, but we obviously could, so why go with the trickery. It was the situations that bothered me rather than the scheme.
