Did you think the short pass on 3rd and 2 was a good call? Seriously? Not one of those Welker Screens that was getting 10+ yards all game? Not a QB sneak? Not some other play we hadn't done yet that would have caught the defense off guard?
Do you think we should have continued with the same mix of 4 to 5 plays that the Colts defense was easily predicting?
Remember when we used to watch highlights and there would be at least two plays that would make you chuckle in that "Hell yeah!" sort of way? Whether it was faking a ball spike, a direct snap, reverse, etc, these plays were always snuck in. And frequently, they worked. Also, it prevented the defense from narrowing down the plays to 4-5 different ones, most of which can easily be determined by your offense's formation.
The offense in the 2nd Half was stale in many ways, and has been often this year. The reason we don't necessarily notice it is because we have been playing average to weak defenses and we have some rediculous offensive weapons. In other words, we have been getting away with having an uncreative offense and we got caught on it this week.
Bring back some complex plays to keep the defense guessing.
And cut Maroney.
