I haven't had any idea of what to write columns about for the last couple of days after the debacle at UVA. It feels like the only left to write about this program is the ineptitude of the coaching and lack of flexibility that has emerged from the Moustache Jones staff. On defense we have linebackers covering wide receivers for no reason and on offense we don't throw the football until we are down 27 points. We start the game off with onside kicks again for no reason, apparently UVA lines up 15 yards off the line for kickoffs. Hmm you think they might do that for a reason to fool gullible coaches into giving them fantastic field position.
There seems to be no continuity to the play calling and as a result it appears as we have no game plan. The wildcat offense is used some times without Shady on the field and even more infuriating we use the wildcat on first down with our QB lined up at wide receiver. He doesn't need to be put in a situation where he might get injured, bring him in with the non-Wildcat play on second or third down. I find it hard to believe that our offensive coaching staff can't figure out how put different packages in, I mean Rhoads has proven he has no idea how to use different packages. Each series we run appears to be either all pass on first and second down or all run on first and second down. We run this antiquated playing style where we take no chances and just wait for the game to get out of hand.
The team has not been playing well but the more I think about it and re-watching some of the games later I have no doubt that its all the play-calling. We can't continue to put a straitjacket on the offense from the beginning of the game. Come out throwing the ball early and often. Don't immediately lose confidence in the passing game and start running up the middle. Run some intermediate routes in order to get some of our play makers the ball in a situation to do something with it. Perhaps, throw the deep ball from time to time. Bostick is going to get sacked probably 4 or 5 times because of how bad the offensive line is.
Listen we are going to lose many more games this season. Here is an idea why don't we go down fighting instead of getting lapped playing conservatively. I'll take a losses as long as we can turn games into shootouts. If the defense is going to continue to play at the same level this is our only way to remain competitive. I would much rather lose a game 44-35 than 44-14.
