It’s the play calling

I know we are weak at OL and don’t have the outside speed as top-10 teams, but that’s not an excuse.

The play calling the last two weeks was atrocious. We’re getting hit in the backfield? Of course we are, running draws 5 yards behind the line out of shotgun repeatedly on 1st and 2nd down.

We run the zone read, but coaches never put it in Montez’s hands to run it outside to keep the D guessing.

Worries about the O-line? Let Montez get outside of the pocket and make some plays.

We ran up the middle on 3rd and 15 from mid-field when up 7-0. Take a shot when you’re on the road against a better team. Make things happen.

We ran up the middle on 3rd and 5 from their 20, tied 7-7. Take a shot.

First and goal from the ten after a big interception. Don’t even throw in the end zone once.

Two wildcat plays on 3rd and 4th down, with Montez off the field. Put it in his hands.

You can’t play conservatively against better teams, especially on the road. You have to force it and take shots and we have been absolutely hesitant to even try anything for 2 weeks.

It’s frustrating for fans, so I can’t imagine how Montez and the receivers feel.
