If we did recover Ambush in the SB Sean would be long gone. It came down to the execution.
And pretty soon your going to hear "here goes Payton again, only throwing/using Kamara and forcing him the ball"
I never understood that gripe. Yea it was predictable, but it worked. Why fix something that ain't broke. We always scored enough and gained enough yardage to beat every team we played. The problem was defense.
People just got bored seeing it. Other teams still rarely stopped it.

"Very good vision" is an understatement. Kamara seems to see seams (say that 10 times fast) before they even open. What I notice is that not only does he see seams but he has the acceleration to take advantage of them.

The shuffle pass touchdown was a beaut.

Re: Playcalling improvements

Kamara is the second coming of Pierre Thomas but with better hands and more speed.

I'm not ready to crown him just yet. PT was a screen monster - but Kamara sure does look the part early on.

Re: Playcalling improvements

The screen to Michael Thomas was very encouraging. Had we thrown it to Ginn or Tommylee it would have been more predictable what we were doing. But changing it up and giving Thomas that play totally caught the D off guard and helped get us the first down. This is the kind of variation we need in our offense.

That's what makes Kamara dangerous. When he's in the game all options are open.

Re: Playcalling improvements

I thought the QB sneak on 4th down showed a bit of recent history pattern breaking. Seems to me that Payton would have backed off the gas previously and put the game back on the D.
