Default O.B the OC

This dude is a horrible offensive coordinator, he is so uncreative and it could be me but it seems like he is trying to protect mallet, i saw very few deep routes in this game.

I know Mallet was not very accurate today, but the kid still looks pretty good to me, IMO all he needs is more game time. BUT shouldn't we take advantage of his biggest asset (HIS ARM STRENGTH). And that falls on O.B IMO.

And for the love of god stop throwing WR screens, as seen by defenses nobody is fooled.

Default Re: O.B the OC

Agree.

He is:

1) horribly predictable (do we ever throw on first down when we are leading?)
2) un-creative -- sorry, but I'm not seeing Chip Kelly out there...
3) relies too much on the run game. Arian is broken, how long until Blue is?

Where are the TE's? Where are the slants to the slot? Where
are the behind the LOS screens with multiple blockers in front?

Where is anything that looks novel? It's like 1970's college football without
the Wishbone.

Yeah come to think about it i have not seen OB run a normal screen, he has to realize this is not college and 1 guy cant do it all by himself. Especially all the screens to AJ, I love AJ but he is not going to break many of those off for much.

If you want to use AJ put him in the slot and run him on some slants, especially in the red zone. His big body and hands would let him get automatic yards on 10 yard slant routes.

OB the OC is PB, but don't tell BM otherwise we'll all end up on KP.

Sounds an awful lot like many of the things I complained about early in the season .... I stand by what I said back then , this offensive system sucks.


They were .... battling , played their tails off.

We run it on 1st down every single time, if we go down by multiple scores then we might change it up, but come on.

I thought the job of the "OC" was to keep defenses guessing, if we at home know what is coming you can bet opposing coaches know.

I guess it's going to take a full season for the players to grasp that "complex" O'Brien offense.

Default Re: O.B the OC

I've noticed when I go to restaurants if they have a big menu the chances are they make nothing especially good. But if the menu is a little simpler, but still with plenty of choices, you get a good meal almost no matter what you order.

I've been thinking the last few weeks this offense is too complex for it's own good. Maybe dumb it down and add plays later, I don't know.

Imo there is nothing complex about this offense at all. It's bland and not unique at all. To me it's all about timing and quick throws. Similar to the Patriots. The difference is we don't have a ton of experience as a group playing together. Timing is off a lot and then you add in malletts accuracy issues today and you get the result we did.

Well-said.

Let them emulate the Patriots when they have a Brady at QB, a top-notch OL and a Belicheat as HC.

I don't believe any offense looks good when the qb can't hit a target. The ol couldn't run block today and mallet's accuracy was way off. I dont think any scheme is going to look genius when that happens.

Agreed, in a way. I think the complexity comes from the different looks OB wants to show the defense, all resulting in some oddly familiar plays. Just me.

I see a lot of guys fidgeting around like they don't think they lined up correctly on runs up the middle. That stuff tends to get in a players head.

I was expecting a big ass running attack.
big blocking TE drafted.
Tank drafted at FB
Top Guard drafted.
lots of I formation runs with a stop us if you can.

Obviously this was before our first pre season game

We were outclassed by cincy's front 7. X cant pass block. Prosch is one dimensional. Fido is neither a dominant run blocker or capable of stretching the field. Last week against the browns how many people complained about the offensive scheme? Id agree our passing game doesn't appear nearly as dynamic as it did in kubiaks heyday...but i wonder how much of that is a product of qb performance? If manning, Rodgers, or brees is here how brilliant does this offense look?

They really don't have the weapons to be a spread offense. Just too slow at all the skill positions. Can't run short quick passes when guys are sitting on your WRs. The adjustment has to be more playaction and double moves to scheme them open.
