Default Capers' remark about conservative playcalling

Last night during his radio show, Capers was asked repeatedly in many different ways about the playcalling, and the fans focus on playcalling.

His response:

"Playcalling is a little overrated. When plays don't work, especially running plays, for whatever reason, fans are going to think that the playcalling looks conservative."

At the risk of sounding like a Capers apologist, I agree with that statement.

Now, having said that, the 'fan' in me admits that going 3 and out passing the ball is easier to stomach than going 3 and out with a run, run, pass. It just looks like you're trying harder, as illogical as that sounds.

Reading between Capers lines, I get this message. He knows the running game is not performing as he expected it, but there is no choice but to keep trying to run, because if you let the defense know that the running game is being abandoned, then Carr will never get any time to throw, no matter how good the offensive line performs. The running game HAS to perform in order to pass.
