    every game, every single game the commentators talk about how stupid it is... even as a decoy he demands attention. It is dumb on every possible level. You take out the best offensive player, hands down, and as far as passing goes, Henry kills it when he gets the ball with open field. He has some of the longest receptions of the team.

    Sadly, Buddy was there the next year. They won I think 11 in a row and were rolling into the play-offs. The got up on KC (quarterbacked by Joe Montana)
    I was watching with a KC fan and he says, "Doesn't your team blow big leads, like Buffalo, Denver, etc." Then they blew the lead :(

    Sorry I digress, back to the happy news of the day :)

    Ding, dong, the Downings dead

    Chuck Cecil was awful. That drop off in defense from 2008 to 2009... but Downing was worse.

    I’m sure teams are well aware that Ward isn’t getting the handoff on third and anything less than 12 yards.

    Longer than that and an actual draw play is possible.

    The dreaded draw play on 3rd and long. Everybody saw it coming.

    I agree that LeFleur didn’t exactly light it up as our OC and not sure how that one year landed him a HC job.

    But the point I was trying to make is that people keep saying that it’s Vrabel not wanting to run a modern style offense, but his first offensive hire was a new, young OC that was touted as being just that.

    We have 50 people posting how many runs were made on 1st down.

    how many runs were made on 3rd down? QBs maybe scrambled, but I m willing to bet it’s less than 20%.
    And of those carries, how many were just the 3rd and long draw.

    partly because the best RB in the league is taken off the field, but partly because the offense never even attempts to use another RB as a threat to run the ball.

    It’s crazy lame and ineffective.
    At least robiskie just kept running him on 3rd.

    edit: or until it pops.
