People who claim they see Eli checking into a run off of a pass makes me crack up. What you see is Eli calling out adjustments, possibly a hot route or maybe simply calling the run off right tackle instead of left. Every single time he makes an adjustment at the line does NOT mean he's checking from a pass play into whatever run happens. It doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but I can almost guarantee its not every single time he's making an adjustment
We have a PLAIN vanilla offense - if players execute it can work.
We havent tricked anyone in years
we havent added a "wrinkle" in years
No misdirection plays
No end arounds - just to keep people honest
We have no identity as an offense short of ELI making a great play - those seam passes where things of beauty
If Eli is the identity of this offense - we should live and die with it - deflating the ball to keep RG3 off the field was a bone head move and it cost us.
You can tell by how many posts I have made today that I am not happy and I think we were OUTCOACHED
but my issue is with Gilbride. and you nailed it, they stick with the same thing over and over and i know it has worked but come on sometimes you have to switch things up.
Let's face it. We weren't able to stop them. We kicked FG's when they scored TDs. They executed we didn't. We lost fair and square.
Entire Team Let Eli down today - NYG4l
