SCBills Posted November 7, 2022 Share Posted November 7, 2022 We all know the weaknesses, worries, strengths and reasons for optimism with this team. At 6-2, with a history of going into a lull around this time of year, what would YOU do? Option 1 - Sign OBJ, obviously. Lack of a true WR2 is clearly a massive issue this year. Let's take that out of the equation for now. If it's me: -Bench McKenzie from the slot role. He's killing the offense. Some of it is on him, some of it is due to Allen clearly not trusting him. Develop a package for him with jet sweeps, motion and goal line opportunities. That should have been his role all along. -Give Shakir extended run at slot and see if he can take ownership of the role and develop chemistry with Allen. We have Kumerow back as outside depth. -Use Hines heavy in the slot and as an Ekeler-type safety valve -Settle on two backs and allow them to find a rhythm. As much as I like Cook, this likely becomes Singletary and Hines. Rotating 3 just gets too jumbled and I don't think it works for a guy who needs touches to get into the game and another guy who we're trying to integrate mid-season. -Force Allen to throw designed check downs to loosen two deep shells. I don't care if he doesn't want to do it.. he has to. Run designed plays that go to the RB in the flat or in shallow routes. If they don't want to run the ball more, fine.. but if Knox is needed to block, we need a reliable short passing game. Give Allen easy reads and nickel/dime teams to death 5-10 yards at a time until they react. On Defense, I'm sure they'll figure out the run game issues... They always do, let's just hope it's sooner rather than later. 4 4 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
