1st and goal at the 10

29 December 2014 - 06:04 PM

Potential game winning drive. 10 yards for the go-ahead score. 4 consecutive passes. This is where I believe the playcalling has been particularly atrocious; in the redzone.

 

Everyone in the stadium knew Houston would bring the heat. How about a QB draw? What happened to the read option? Quick screen to the RB? Catch the defense overpursuing. Bortles had completed less than 50% of his passes and the receivers couldn't catch a cold. Why lean on the offense's biggest weakness in the game's biggest moment? Those had to be 4 of the most predictable plays I could imagine.

 

I think Fisch will be retained, and I'm not keen on Bortles learning a new offense for the 2nd year in a row anyway. Point is, redzone playcalling needs to improve big time to make this offense more productive.
