Not saying yates is the long term solution...but them going with case being the "right" decision? based on what? a spark? I honestly believe that putting anyone under center besides Schaub would've given this team the same spark..but
Lets analyze this "strengths" argument.
- ok, we've run a good amount of rollouts & play action bootlegs that have put that to use...but we haven't been running the ball well & as a result the rollouts & play action bootlegs haven't had the same effect as they normally would. Teams are also just on it. The ends are playing disciplined & are waiting on it. Now, unless you're 1 of the people advocating we run zone read or something, i don't see how the coaching staff can utilize this skill any more than they have been. It's largely on Case to put that in play.
the deep ball
- the playcalling has been there for that evidenced by how much he was connecting deep in the 1st 2 games. But defenses are hip to that now & the last 2 games they've endeavored to take it away from him. He hit none in the AZ game and only 1 in the last game. In addition to this, teams are blitzing the hell out of him. So even if the coaches were sabotaging him & not calling deep shots, he hasn't had alot of time to sit back & let that deep stuff develop anyway.
He worked alot out of shotgun & spread formations at U of H .....we've been damn near exclusively running out of the shotgun & have seen an uptick in our spread packages...
I mean what the hell else do u want the coaches to do to try & do to utilize his strengths more short of changing the whole damn offense....which will effect everyone...Then we'd be losing games b/c of miscues on offense instead.
