Now, dont get me wrong. I have the utmost respect for 'Dinger. I think he can be a great O-coordinator when Fisher loosens the reigns. He proved it McNair's MVP year. But the playcalling this year has been pathetic. I know this has been a constant complaint for most of the season. But after watching the KC offense today, with a RB people label as a generic CJ2K(Jamal Charles), I cant understand the playcalling of this Titans offense
I dont know if 'Dinger has sole control of the gameplan, or how much input Fisher has on it. But somethings got to give. The Chiefs utilize their best players by getting them the ball in space. Its not even that complicated. There were multiple misdirection plays that got our D flowing one direction & then they slug the ball back across the field for a nice gain. They used multiple formations to set up screen passes, & ran at least 3 different types of screen plays.
I cant for the life of me understand why this Titans team doesnt use the screen pass more often!! Maybe its because our gaurds or center is too slow to get out there. But that cant really be it, because they use them in sweeps & counter plays. If it is the fact they dont want to use linemen to set up the screen, you can use the FB & TE to get out wide for blocking.
But, instead, they run the same 5-6 plays every game! 2nd down & 16? Let's run CJ up the middle on a draw play. Everybody in the stadium knows its coming, yet they run it every game, almost every possesion. The predictability is infuriating as a fan. If I can recognize the play from my couch half drunk, dont you think the defenders who studied hours of film will recognize it as well Fisher?!!?
It's bad enough that they cant even get the best players on the field. But you can have all the talent in the world at the skill positions, & if you run the same predictable plays over & over & over its not going to matter. The Chiefs run an offense that keeps you on your toes & gets their best players out in space where they can be dangerous & make plays. The Titans run a high school offense that bangs its head against a brick wall over & over again. Things need to change or the talents of CJ2K, & Britt will be wasted & they will be on the first thing out of town when their contracts end.
Sorry to ramble, but watching a team do to us what we should be doing to the rest of the leauge made me extremely mad.
