I can't believe we struggle on 3rd and 1... It's like the teams have the ultimate defense on the field every time. We need to go I-Formation a hell of a lot more, because we're more successful at running the ball under it. The No Huddle is all fine and dandy but why do you think we always stall in the redzone? Because we can't convert 3rd and shorts. That's the only thing that irritates me about this team and McCarthy. I will admit he is great in all other areas but it's like he doesn't care about 3rd and short plays. He just wants the big play on those downs, obviously teams have our number on that down, CHANGE IT UP MIKE! :)

I think part of the problem is everyone knows we're going to Rodgers once we get to the Redzone because he has been to good at getting them in there over the years.

I think the play calling needs to go focus more on the runs and make this a run first team to get the passing game back int oa groove, also because the OL aren't the best in pass blocking and now there are a lot of pass weapons out.


I would still like to see a system with Lacy and Franklin in at the same time. Lacy being a threat to go up the middle, Franklin to the outside, and hopefully Franklin could also do some in motion stuff as well as maybe the slot stuff while Cobb is out.

Finley and Bostick get used as WRs more, while Quarless and Taylor are asked to step it up at TE.

I wonder if Franklin is fast enough for a Melvin Gordon-style jet sweep.

This is very uncharacteristic of our offense, so I believe they will snap out of this at some point.
