    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

    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.

    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

    Right guard.

    Right tackle.

    Use Posey more, but don't expect miracles yet.

    Use Clutts, or whatever his name is. We need the blocking BAD.

    Send at least 3 deep on the same play occasionally.

    Matter of fact, try using Casey AND Clutts WITH Foster or Tate and see what you can do with that. I'm thinking of the 49ers.

    Use the 4 WR set more often.

    Let Schaub audible to whatever he thinks will work. I know Kubiak will NEVER do this, but he sure ought to try it.


    All I got.

    I think this offense has leveled out until a young QB is brought in and developed. They've got Schaub with guaranteed money through 2013. But in 2014, he need competition. That's why I would get a QB in this draft and develop him. A Kaepernick or Wilson type.

    Where is the burning picture of Kubiak at when you need it?

    Bench Schaub, let TJ go for 2-0 against Cinci. Yes, Schaub is that bad.

    We don't need wholesale changes. We're stuck with Schaub and Kubiak for the foreseeable future so there's nothing we can do about that at the moment. What they have to realize is that the offense needs more flexibility. We need an offense that can quickly and efficiently move the ball. It's probably too late to make those kinds of changes right now, but I would like to see Keyshawn Martin more in this offense. I don't know why all of a sudden he's disappeared in the offense. DeVier Posey has been playing well but I think Martin can still contribute by become a possession receiver. Not having big tight ends also is a limiting factor because we can't make plays over the top of the defense. OD is great at moving the chains but he's not a big play threat. Overall we absolutely need to become more fast on offense.

    Next week? Nothing can be done. The plodding sack of **** wearing number 8 will throw picks and fall down. It's going to happen so why worry about it. This season has been a colossal waste of time so the sooner it ends the better. Sadly we won so many games that we'll draft as if we were actually a good team and not just some aberration that picks on weak-sister teams with losing records. Just get it over with and head for the off-season.

    Then I think that we invest heavily in the offensive line. I'm talking first day picks and maybe a free agent signing. It's time to take OL picks more seriously.

    Is there a QB like that in this draft? Most of them are all classic dropback passers.

    I guess Geno Smith could be he has some athleticism but he's going to go high.

    That's not going to help. He can't hit a receiver in stride. If he ever does or recently has.....it was an accident.

    agreed.

    This team needs speed somewhere on the offensive side of the ball. None of our skill positions players are a threat to go the distance. Maybe we miss Jacoby.:kitten:

    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.
