Play Calling is Overrated...

As I watch the message boards burst into flames I am seeing a recurring theme...

The play calling was way too conservative

Well, consider the hand that the coaching staff was dealt. They moved the ball with ease in the first quarter until Sarkisian adjusted (what does that tell you?) taking out the one thing I said was going to be key...running the ball. Sark knew Corp couldn't throw it and so did Carroll & Bates.

SC's offense became very one dimensional and we saw the results...

Yes, I have some questions as to why we didn't see any roll-outs, bootlegs or QB draws...all the things that Corp should have been able to take advantage of because of his mobility but it never happened.

Why?

Well, I think once it was determined that Corp was shell shocked out there The coaching staff tried to make it as simple as possible for him to run the offense we saw how that went...

It doesn't matter what you have in your playbook...If the QB can't run what the coaches have schemed then you have to simplify it...but Corp couldn't even do that. Coaches have to adjust as the game progresses and they did the best they could when they determined that Corp was making the wrong reads and was too afraid of his own shadow to chuck it down the field.

Play calling is overrated...you need to take control of the game right out of the blocks. SC did that but Corp didn't respond when Sarkisian adjusted and stacked the box...
