Everyone was shouting to the rooftop that we need to throw more deep balls. Great. Does it make sense to go deep with over 5 minutes to go, down by 3 with a nice drive going on 2nd & 3? Absolutely ridiculous! How about running the ball straight into the defensive line in a hurry up at the 5 yard line?
It’s nice to hit the deep ball now and again but the offense has sputtered. It seems like we need the QB to bail the offense out, or a WR to make a miraculous catch to keep the offense alive. This game was no different than USF. We were a always playing catch up and needing big miraculous plays to sta I the game. Hell, Dunbar, had to make a great catch to keep the drives alive. Why not throw the slant to get the 5 yards? Had it not been for a miraculous catch by Dunbar then the offense doesn’t even have a shot at scoring. So with the ball near the 50 yard line, once again we go deep on 2 & 3? Stupid! Yes, beautiful catch but it’s a low percentage play.
On top of that, how many times this season have we heard the announcers say something to the effect of “if I can see the play coming then you know the defense (insert opponent) can predict it.
The truth is, our offense lacks creativity. It’s predictable. Everyone can see it, except for our head coach.
