(Of course there's no way in hell he would answer that, and even if he did he would scoff at such an idea. But I don't care, I'd ask it anyways).
Wade: Why is Bradie James so important as a play calling LB that he ends up being out there more than better "ball hawks" such as Tim Dobbins? Why are you not getting guys like Mercilus and Braman the snaps you're giving Barwin? Both James and Barwin are not producing on stat sheets out there. Is it the loyalty factor? Why not try your depth players more?
Again, no way in hell either coach would let me ask those questions without looking at me like I'm crazy or that I'm being a douche to them. But those are things I want to know.
Inquiring minds want to know.
Our offense does a lot better when teams don't know what we are doing, When we still have the option to run or pass. If we have to just drop back and pass when the other team knows what to expect or we just have to pound it when they are expecting the run sometimes we have trouble. Add that to the fact that Schaub is not really that mobile and we would like to have him come playoff time and the fact that we have a great defense so we should'nt have to take a lot of chances on offense. Add all that to the fact we won by more than 20 and I think I have to agree with Dalemurphy.
