Default How to fix the offense

Ok, to change it up some, how do we fix our offense? Don't complain about Schaub or say we suck or post garbage. Seriously think about the topic and post ideas how to fix the offense, like changing the oline around, starting a new qb, changing play calls, design new plays, whatever. Post some ideas and see what we can come up with.

Invest heavily on the Oline. We just aren't getting good enough play from them right now, and we don't have a QB that is good enough to make up for it. We have to get back to winning the battle in the trenches.

I'm not sure what we do about next week. Pray, I guess. Before next year starts I hope we draft a couple of lineman and have someone in mind to groom as Schaub's replacement.

I don't think we will be able to run the ball anymore this year. The colts had just givin up 300 yards rushing against the Chiefs and we could'nt run on them. Time to go back a couple of years and open up this offense if we have any hope of winning some games in the playoff's

Default Re: How to fix the offense

One thing I'd like to more of I'd screens, preferrably to guys with a little more speed than OD. Zone blocking lineman are athletic so I would think we would be a better screen team. I'd also like to get Casey matched up on some LBs in the passing game, he's got great speed and great hands. Just a couple thoughts for this season. We need OL help in the worst way

agree with this, we need to start playing like we are always playing catch up, especially if the run game just isnt working. Go 5 wide and stretch the field, what we are doing now isnt working so we might as well try something different. BUT kubiak wont.

We need a different mix of plays. Right now our offense doesn't resemble the team of 2 years ago when we could convert more than 50% of our 3rd downs. We are last in 3rd down conversions this season. Down from the best.

I would like to see more screens, more passing to Arian in the flat, and passing the ball to the TEs. Our WRs aren't gonna get any more this season than what we've got.

Default Re: How to fix the offense

Well since we just mean this postseason it's a bit difficult.

The biggest issue is the offensive line is lacking and the truth of the matter is nothing we can do about it. There is no one else capable on the roster currently. We're stuck with Newton since Harris is not much different and stuck with Jones since Caldwell is not much different.

As one person pointed out one change-up to help the run game would be to use a real fullback in Clutts. Granted as someone who is also a Bears fan he isn't that good but has his moments in blocking. To also help the run game mix it more. Foster is more reliant on blocking to read and react. Tate is north and south where he just hits it. Wear the defense down and hit them more with both. We barely see Tate. Heck, mix Forsett sometimes on screens and such too.

For the passing game...get more freaking flexible. I have seen this offense more flexible than this. Remember when David Anderson made it seem like we had a slot receiver and Jones at times too? Do we still? Put Casey at end and hit them with him in the passing game. His size and speed is an advantage more times than not. Tight ends seem barely involved lately.

I know we were trying to limit Foster since he was running so much but it's time for him to be in the passing game much more again. He is a great receiver out the backfield and a threat in open field. Since we can't block much in the run game lets get him in space more.

Right now our offense feels, for lack of a better word, compact. Not very flexible, not much variation, etc. Need a shift to get things going again.

Default Re: How to fix the offense

Our offense is so vanilla and there's no fixing it without a coaching/QB change. Do we even have more than one WR?

There are two plays in Kubiak's playlist: Run up the gut for no yards. And throw the ball to number 80. Not a lot to have to defend against if you're playing opposite that playcalling. No variation, no imagination, no balls.

None of us know what the play calls are, schaub is the one who pulls the trigger, it could easily be him feeding aj and completely ignoring everyone else....and I happen to think this is the case....too many times you see 8 check down on 3rd downs, no way in hell is gary calling a play where the first read is a rb on a swing pass on 3rd and 4

Default Re: How to fix the offense

Are we talking about the offseason or for the upcoming Cincy game?

For this year.....Get the damn TE's involved. What happened to the TE playaction game? Casey doesn't get any touches anymore. Martin is completely invisible in the slot. No looks. We ride Foster too much. Get Tate more carries. Rediscover the intermediate passing game.

For next year....need to upgrade the O-Line. It's been a sieve for the last month. Need to add another receiving weapon. Would be nice to add another good TE.

Pass more. Run run pass doesn't work. Let Schaub get into rhythm early. Have the pass set up the run. Have Schaub practice deep passes all damn week.

Actually, he did really well (you just reminded me) in the Denver game. God, that was a long time ago. Seems like last year.

Matt Schaub is a 10 year vet and our QB for the last 6. Matt Schaub is who Matt Schaub is. If he can't hit a deep pass by now he never will.
