Default Play Calling

Palmer has definately built an offense that plays well together, and obviously has put together some things that work well for us. However, even on a game like this where we moved the ball well on the ground and in the air, there were a few series where the playcalling was somewhat questionable.

For example late in the first half, running the ball until we were out of timeouts, then getting downfiled with no timeouts to attempt a very long FG attempt. I think we should have either let the clock run out, or thrown the ball some at the beginning of that drive.

Also, with a 1st and goal at I think the 7 after a turnover, I would have liked to see Carr get to take at least 1 shot at the endzone, perhaps on a play action pass.

So, yes Palmer does give us some questionable calls, but overall, after a big win is hardly the time to really criticize (hey it worked right), and he has done a good job of preparing and mentoring a young team.
