Can we hire Jeff Saturday, just for Sundays, to remind the play callers of common sense...



You want to talk about common sense isn’t common? Have a 17 point lead and then don’t run the football. And then when the Giants tie you up at 20 all go three and out and take like nine seconds off the clock because you throw it three times. That is dumb football. And a team that runs the ball eight times and passes it 17 times in the second half is not a team that’s playing in their strengths. I have a big issue with(what) Matt LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers are doing right now. Because again all these checks you see on the go line he hands that ball off and he walks in. I get the blitz and it’s going to be confusing and it’s going to be all these things but at some point you play to your strengths when you have two backs like that. You don’t give AJ Dillon 6 touches. It just doesn’t fit. And we knew the receivers were going to be at work in progress. So I understand the numbers they are what they are. I think those numbers get better as the season goes but in the interim you have to play to your strengths….right now they don’t have an identity.

It didn’t take long for former Super Bowl champion Chris Canty to agree:

I’m right there with Jeff. You look at what Wink Martindale the DC for the Giants did. They were out there with six or seven defensive backs. You got to run teams out of that kind of stuff. There’s a reason Aaron Rodgers was 0 for 6 on attempts beyond 20 yards from the line of scrimmage on Sunday. It’s because they were taking away the passing game. You got a lean on your run game and quite frankly that’s when the Packers have had success. That’s when they get their explosive plays when they set up opportunities through play action. It ain’t Aaron Rodgers dropping back in shotgun and getting it done.


Saturday, then quickly jumped back in:

Listen, I really don’t understand. When you look at defenses, I remember when I played I say hey they’re 25th In the league in stopping the run we’re probably going to run it a little more than normal. They’re really good at stopping the pass and putting pressure we’re probably going to throw it a little less. It’s like they do the exact opposite. Coach’s outsmart themselves. I just don’t get it.

Literally, the Giants were not stopping runs up the middle, and the Packers just didn't do them often, but 21 yards in 3 rushed between Myers and Runyan and 7 yards on one run between Myers and Newman.

I strongly doubt this play call is in their audibles, but if you ask Dillon to play FB and block for Rodgers to run straight up the middle, then the OL can double team both DL and Rodgers should be able easily make it to the 3 yard line and dive or slide or whatever he wants to from there.

HOWEVER!!

Breaking: Colts are naming their former six-time Pro-Bowl C and ESPN analyst Jeff Saturday as their interim head coach. Saturday has been a consultant for the team, is in its Ring Of Honor, and also was head coach for the Hebron Christian Academy football team in Dacula, Georgia.
