This has been a issue for a few seasons now on offense. The Ravens picked up on this right out of the gate, the play clock goes down to 1 on almost every snap. Defenders know once the play clock goes down to 1 they can jump right at the snap of the ball.

Not many teams take advantage of this though. I know Cleveland did in 2008, and we couldn't get anything going.

What makes this so friggen irritating was that it happened while running no huddle in hurry up mode.

That I get, but that's why you practice and it seems like preparation has been an issue lately.

Utilise a silent count, at least. Eli's calls are always so damn obvious.

Eli is slow and Gilbride takes forever to get him the call. He doesnt even get an offensive play until 20 seconds left. Another reason I hate it,.And its been for Eli's entire career, not just the past few seasons.

Worse how we have to burn a 2nd half timeout every game because gillbride is having trouble calling two plays when most teams call just one.
