I continue to point at two clear examples when our offense was rolling, and we called off the dogs.
Bengals 3rd quarter our O dominating III unstoppable, and then line up to go 4th and 1. Cinn calls timeout, Shanny goes against his initial decision to go for it, and decides to punt. And then to review the punt. Net 15 and lost a timeout. Double Fail. We didn't score after that, and of course lost the game.
Tampa end of the 1st half in which we largely dominated. We got the ball with about 2 minutes left. We did not try to score, we ran Morris 3 plays up the gut. To burn their timeouts. They ended up getting the ball back with plenty of time to score. Lucky, their anemic offense didnt score. But we eased up, went conservative, happy up 21-6, yet didn't score until that final drive - a full half later.
Other than those 2 momentum killing calls, I have largely been pleased with our offensive play calls.
I think its just a wasted opportunity, dumb, to not want to run up the score at risk of offending the opposition coach, or to think our defense is better than it is. Until we see otherwise, the more times he lets III try to score, the more likely I see us winning. Hurry up may give our offense even more reps, bring it on.
With a dynamic offense, and QB, finally, I think going conservative is exactly what the opposition D is PRAYING for.
Am I wrong in thinking that?
