While I agree that CJ is not showing his full potential. I REALLY THINK THE PREDICTABLE PLAY-CALLING HAS A ROLE HERE. I really like the SI analysis posted by SuperHorn. You will note one of the main points of the article is the “vanilla playcalling”. You can not win against pro defenses running on obvious running formations, and on predicable running downs. Every team knows we are trying to get the run game going so what do they do? They gear up for the run!!!! If everyone will recall, when we WHIPPED THE RAVENS BUTTS, we did A LOT OF PASSING out of RUN FORMATIONS.
Keep the defense off-balance. THAT IS THE COACHES JOB! I believe the coaches and the fans have gotten so caught up in “we need to get the run game going” that we forgot the most important ELEMENT – WIN GAMES!!!!!
Let’s quit OBSESSING on running, and focus on doing what it takes to WIN GAMES:
1) keep opponent defense guessing – BE UNPREDICTABLE!
2) focus on the COLLECTIVE TEAM EFFORT, not one individual
