Payton's Play Calling

I, like every other Who Dats, am searching for a reason for our lack of performance this season. I am dwelling on Payton's play calling. What is different between this year and last year. I think the difference is that last year Payton's play calling was unpredictable. He kept the defenses guessing what was going to happen next . . . they stayed off balance. This year it seems the play calling is conservative compared to last year. It is like our plays are predictable, as if they know what play is coming next. I think Payton needs to go back to the "leave it all on the field' attitude. Do completely opposite of what the defenses are expecting. Put the element of surprise back in our offense. Just my humble opinion . . .

Hey Goodell . . . This year we will kick ass for free!

Could be that after all these years, teams are putting out defenses tailored from watching our offense rip them to shreds. Although we have left a bunch of points on the field this season so far, namely 3 last Sunday afternoon. In my opinion we have to trust the staff that got us to the promised land. Around week 14 or 15 this slow start will be a moot point.

Maybe they are giving Coach knock off juicy fruit gum. SP doesn't seem to have that wild look in his eyes on the sidelines. He needs to become unpredictable again cause you know we are well studied now.

I don't see it as bad play-calling; more like bad fundamentals is what I see.

Receivers not catching the ball, defense not tackling, kickers not kicking, just a lack of effort all the way around for the most part...

I wouldn't call it a lack of effort so much as a lack of execution. Seems like the teams is playing hard but just can't get everything to klick at the same time.

I am seeing some of the same things on offense that I saw for the Bucs game that was lost at home last year. Player going down instead of reaching out for the first down, dump off passes going for 3-4 yards instead of 15-20, the deep ball not being there. Those are things that we need to keep drives going and put points on the board.

Can you give some examples of this. I posted similar thread, but don't really have the time to look up evidence that its occurring.

Still too early to tell. If Hartley would have made that field goal we would be 3-0 and wouldn't even be talking about SP's playcalling.

Maybe he's trying to let things settle down before he pulls another rabbit out of his hat...
