    At this point, they should just do an entire game of play action calls. Defenses would keep loading the box and lose their minds lol.

    Yea but we are in year 3 with Mariota. I just have the feeling this is how Mularkey wants his qb to run his offense.

    To be fair to Mularkey, the idea that a good running attack sets up play action isn't some shocking new revelation. Its absolutely true.

    The run game hasn't been very effective? Better you run it, more PA you can utilize.

    I think it is.

    He wants this offense to run like the one he had in Pittsburgh with Kordell Stewart.

    Minus randomly throwing Mariota at receiver at times.

    Play action is harder to pull off than most people realize. The QB has to spend the first second or two of the play with his back to the defense instead of reading the coverage and identifying the blitz. By the time he turns around, the play is half-developed. I hated running play action in practice in high school the few times it was called.

    Props to Mariota for being good at it though. It does seem like our play action works pretty well. So I'd be all for seeing it a bit more often.

    Maybe Mularkey should talk to the Rams and Eagles....
