    I'm not a football maven, but when you know a blitz( and we certainly had many opportunities to see this ) is coming you should have something " up your sleeve "... there must be open gaps somewhere...but I didn't see one audible to a " hot read " is this really that hard?? couldn't we make an adjustment after half time...someone tell me this isn't true?? that I've got it all wrong??

    I think one of our hot reads hit Burton in the back, the other almost hit Robinson in the back. These guys just aren't on the same page. Plus, don't think Murphy expected Humphries would just choose to not block anyone at times. Not much you can do there.

    I saw Murphy check out of a play 1 time thus far (I think it was 2 weeks ago)? I can't recall Driskel ever checking out of a call. It seems the coaches call the play and the QBs must obey no matter what blitz or stack line.

    I thought our offense looked good with a 5 WR set. Spread them out and reduce the amount of blitzers. Unfortunately, we didn't do it enough and we kept calling the same predictable plays.

    If all we did was throw on 1st, that alone would put defenses on their heels. I think we had 2 first down play calls in the first half and none in the 2nd half by my guess.

    Why don't we audible instead so the WR knows it's coming?

    We just don't seem to adjust our offensive game plan the way we do with our defense. I guess we tried to call a couple of screens to counter the blitz but that obviously didnt work. Why not more of the quick flares? Or god forbid we try to exploit the 1 on 1 coverage that should be there when the other team blitzes so much. We have speed recievers in Patton and Dunbar and tall WRs in Robinson and Fullwood. Guarantee they would make a play if we let them try.

    Yep^^^^^.... This one says it all. Our receivers were not on the same page with Murphy. We had a couple of plays that could have been big gainers and the WR was not looking. The pass hit them in the back! Hot reads only work if the WR's are awake!

    Maybe the staff did not expect pressure. Did they adjust to help Tyler? If they didn't then you would be led to believe they hadn't rehearsed for that.

    Maybe the hot reads are being run. But maybe the hot reads aren't getting open. Who do we have that has shown the ability to consistently get open against man coverage (which is what's run the overwhelming majority of the time behind a blitz)?
