Ok I will be the first to admit that Brunell is not an amazing qb, but all I read and hear about is how itís his fault the offense isnít moving. And imo that is not entirely true and isnít even half true. I donít care what Saunders has done in the past the plays heís calling are not working here.
It seems to me that he came in and tried to change each players skill to be what he wants it to be. I havenít seen him adapt to any of our players skills or create plays that help the players strong points. Except maybe the screens to Moss, but he has barely used Moss downfield. Cooley a great 3rd down converter and redzone guy has gotten barely anything for either. He is good at getting up in the short field not downfield with a fast corner right on him. Instead of using his strong points and trying new things, we just try new things that donít work. Thatís how I feel about this offense, a new set up that isnít fit for our players, and maybe it will be in time but we made it to the playoffs last year, whatís the problem here? Granted Cooley has dropped some he should have caught, but he is barely getting a opportunity. The plays are all called in a way that makes it pretty obvious, when a pass play is coming. Which brings the blitz, giving Brunell no time.
Put Cambell in that game last night and I bet they would have a couple more interceptions. Because he is still young and will see the rush and try to make a play and give it right to a defender.
I am not saying nothing this season is Brunells fault because that is far from true. I am saying that in my opinion this Saunders system is flawed in that it doesnít seem to adapt to the players strong points, and is also pretty predictable for a 700 page book.
