This is exactly what I take issue with. There's a fine line between calling a play that the d doesn't expect, and trying to be too cute. Sometimes, the best play call is the simplest. Stop trying to figure out what the d is going to do and out think them and just execute better and make them stop you.
An example of what I'm talking about is the dude on the Bills saying the Pats basically ran nothing more than 3 running plays yet they couldn't stop them.
