As I was watching the aweful loss to the raiders unfold I became increasingly frustrated with a problem that I naively hoped went away after the Cincinatti tie game. I thought that game tought Andy a lesson that in no close game under any circumstance should you completely abandon the run when your passing game is out of rhythm. Well we ran the ball all of 11 times and westy looked very good when given some opportunities.
Andy has not learned the lesson and he called another head-scratchingly aweful game. With the injury ravished offensive line playing its absolute worst, our coach made them drop back time after time without ever showing much of a threat to run.
The game was lost in many ways, but the most frustrating for me was this fundamental problem that Andy refuses to fix. RUN THE DAMN BALL!
