    Default Why is our redzone O so bad? What would you do different?

    We all hate BA and his play calling, particularly in the red zone!

    We complain after the fact in virtually every game!

    We fantasize about how the Steelers can win it all and still fire BA!

    But instead of complaining because it didn't work, let's talk about what should be done so we can watch what's happening when it's happening.

    I am not a X's and O'x guy and I have never coached football but I've watched my share.

    I think given the small field, crowded with people, that creativity is paramount. I have contended that under BA we do not do a good job, in general, of mis-direction and mis-timed plays such as screens and draws and while these plays are not the answer in the red zone, the fact that we don't use them allows teams to cheat on what we do.

    Maybe Kemo can run the ball?

    What type of offensive plays will work in the red zone?

    1. Slants.

    2. Back shoulder throws. In my mind the perfect play is the one the Saints did to beat the Bungles on Sunday. Nearly impossible to defend if the CB gives a bit of a cushion.

    2:35-2:40 here:



    3. Play action Ben rollout to his right, run pass option and drag the TE, who faked his block, across the back of the endzone and the blocking fullback dragging just along the goal line. 2 options to throw to and an option to run if covered. It's a great play from the 5 and in.

    Jump balls to your 6'7" 270lb TE matched up on CB's and shorter LB's. He would basically just have to box out and rebound.

    Eh.

    I'm not much a fan of a jump ball. It's more of a crapshoot pass than something well-timed and well-schemed.
