I'm totally frustrated with Capers offensive strategy at this point. We don't use all our resources until we are behind 21-0. No skill position players touched the ball till the second quarter. Armstrong is a talented WR but we don't use him until we are in panic mode. Our play calling leaves the Offensive line and Carr in unwinable situations.

Mack Brown has nothing on Dom Capers.

I won't say that we are put in "unwinnable" situations too much but I do agree that the coaching staff needs to open it up more earlier in the game. I did not watch the first half of this game because we were down 21-0 and there was that "other game" on. Even though we played very well and all, it's one of those games that we might come back to later on and regret loosing it. The coaching staff by now should definitely have enough confidence in the offense to start attacking more instead of waiting till it's the 4th quarter.

When you have no deception in your game plan and you put your self in predictable situations I consider that poor coaching and poor gameplanning. We didn't have a single skill position player touch the ball other than Dom Davis until the second quarter, and didn't open up the offense until we were down 3 TD's. We don't even look at Armstrong until the game is in panic mode. Isn't he the same guy in the first quarter? I'm losing my patience with Capers.

i think they are just still finding the offense and what is painfully obvious to us, they just arn't ready to accept for whatever reason that we are a passing machine and we are going to generate most of the yards from Carr's arm.

We have 3 good backs to set up a running back by committee and let the hottest back take the majority of the snaps.
