Thread: Will Jon Gruden burn out the team?

  1. #21
    Last year and the year before, it seemed like the first offensive drive (scripted plays) worked well most of the times. And then usually up to halftime we would score, but after half time is when we would struggle.

    Seems like the other team would figure out whatever we were doing and make the necessary adjustments or the players themselves would catch on.

    The red zone was a big problem, trading FGs for their TDs wasn't cutting it.

    Grudens conservative play calling didn't help either, acting like we had a top 10 defense with his play calling.

    I never understood Gruden's supposedly huge playbook that the offense has to memorize. Carr seemed to have picked it up pretty fast though, but for the rest of the offense, I don't know how much of a hinderance it is for them. Down in the red zone it seems pretty vanilla to these uneducated eyes. Lot of it is running up the gut or Carr rolling out and not being able to find anyone open. Shouldn't Gruden flip more pages in his illustrious playbook and dial up something more ingenious?

    Guenther's playbook was reportedly huge also and that made the defense confused and slow.

    Hopefully this year's defense can be just as good at the end of the season too. If they are able to, this team can be different from previous years. Also, the O-line has to hold up too.

    After the Bad Jets loss when we were 6-3, two years ago we went a calender month not scoring a 2nd half TD...Let's see some consistency this year

    QB has to know what everyone is doing on every play....just like yesterday on the Pick 6, Carr thought Moreau would keep running, Moreau read zone and was going to sit. So there's that, nuances to every play how routes change in zone versus man. Moreau's been there 3 years. The QB has a much more difficult job learning the PB than individual players, yesterday we saw Ruggs running cross action on running plays the opposite way, Ruggs needs to make sure he gets that back side block. They are able to open up the playbook a bit more because Ruggs got a full offseason in it, we never ran Ruggs in that cross action rush. They probably were able to run that play quite a bit in practice as well. Edwards also same amount of time as Ruggs in the offense, is showing. Some of those big throws by Carr is knowing who's running that route and the ability to timeout the speed, those bombs by Carr are up there a long time, Ruggs, ran to those balls, Carr threw him open, same with Renfrow and Edwards, understanding the tools is huge when there is a big rush coming.
