Alot of people on here are faulting Hasslet for calling that all out blitz on 3rd and 21, while I agree that it was a terrible call, the defense was pretty darn good the majority of the game. What I dont understand is why Kyle refuses to use screens and draws?
Rob Ryan brings the house most plays, and it was no different last night. He runs a very aggressive defense, very similar to our own. I found myself SCREAMING at the TV last night for a slip screen to Hightower/Helu, I felt like it was there all night. The one screen I remember us running was a 15 yard pickup on the last drive. Then I started thinking about the first 2 games, every screen I remember us running has been pretty successful. There was one vs the Giants to Hightower that got us a 1st and goal, then the big one to Helu for 33 yards. But I dont remember more then 1 or 2 per game.
Why does'nt Kyle run more screens? When I look around at different offenses, I feel like other teams utilize the screen so much more often then we do. Philly, Bmore, NYG, NE, CHI...these teams all run alot of screens. Hell, Philly runs them all the time. Am I missing something as to why we dont?
Tough game last night, but if beat the Cardinals this week, Ill take 3-1. Huge difference between 2-2 and 3-1 though. BIG GAME!
