Now I may be jumping the gun, or even totally off base, but I watch these other teams play and I see points being put up left and right, quarterbacks throwing for 200, 300 yards and even running backs rushing for over 100 yards with the quarterbacks still doing their job. It may just be me but I feel like it's not that the talent isn't there, but we just aren't getting the play calling or the offensive style we need. We know we have the talent, but I don't think Cam Cameron can run it the way it needs to be run. The Broncos put up 31 points this week, but we haven't been able to hit 14 yet. I don't think it's the players. I really feel like we need to look into a different offensive coordinator. I just don't think Cam is the play caller that can truly take advantage of the talent we have.
I understand that when the defense holds teams to under 20 points a game we don't need to put up 40 some points, but why shouldn't we? Why do we always have to BARELY out score the team? If we can get the plays to take advantage of the talent, then I feel as if we should absolutely change our play style and do it. The Lions have the talent finally and they are showing it. We have more depth and I believe equal if not better all around talent on the offense than they do. If we keep games as close as they have been, then we can't afford to make mistakes. Yes if our quarterback throws 4 interceptions in a game, I don't expect to win, but when Ray Rice gets 16 total touches while playing well, I don't get why you don't go to him more. I just feel like we need to get someone who can use what we have and change the style from pound it out offense (which we don't really even run with Ray Rice and the passing game we have) and switch to an offense that can score. We haven't looked like the ground and pound run first offense since we moved Mclain to fullback full time. Ray Rice is a fast back who can run over people, we need to use that and the (what feels like) billion threats we have in the passing game.
What coordinators would we be able to get to change this, and am I just totally off base here? Please correct me if I'm the only one who feels this way, but I feel like I do make sense.
