    Yea we have to get some good play action plays going. Every time we have ran a pay the DE has blown it up and been right in lockers face.

    Totally agree. Our offense is so predictable right now, so far we've made it to 2-1 but eventually it's going to come back and haunt us more.

    We are bottom 5 in 3rd down distance at the moment with the average distance around 8.5 yards. Play action on second down has to help that.

    We just need to spice it up a little more. I an see why we have baby stepped locker along... But it's time to let him play a little more. I'm still curious as to why we don't have as many audibles built in.

    Was anyone else about ready to go insane during this play?

    Passing out of the shotgun is easier. Especially for a QB with questionable mechanics...doesn't require as much footwork, you start the play looking forward and reading the defense instead of backing up away from the line, and you catch the ball in your throwing stance.

    I was getting uneasy but there was an obvious forward lateral that would have been overturned if they scored and it went to the booth.

    We really need to open the playbook up a bit more, protecting Locker isn't going to cut it. There were so many times last week that a play action could have roasted the D, or I'd of rathered pass over run given on the situation. Run run pass has a lot to do with the average 3rd down of 8.5 IMO.
