    Offensive Playcalling wasn't quite so offensive

    The O playcalling this week was much better. We finally made a few tosses and took some chances.

    We made a bunch of stupid mistakes and didn't find the end zone until Bulger came along. But, we were making forward progress. And that is an improvement.

    I guess we can only blame the playcalling for so long, it got us into the red zone 3 times and then the 3 turnovers,not the OC's fault on those.

    The Boller fumble on the potential screen and the Jax fumble with 1st and goal on the 3yrd line made me wanna vomit. It would've been a game but no one can find that Rams vudu choke doll anywhere. We've bottumed out badly but the offense moved the ball well today against a pretty good D. So there is a positive somewhere in there. We also held Peterson to just under 70 yards. Just gotta stop the mistakes.

    i didn't like the red zone playcalling for the most part, honestly, and i liked the red zone execution less. other than that it was an improvement.

    Agreed, playcalling in the redzone was pedestrian at best, but it would have been a far more exciting game had we not given them the ball back 3 times at our own goal line.
    Now my phone keeps blowing up with all my obnoxious Viqueen 'fan' friends.

    Keep in mind the play calling in the Red Zone couldn't remain as it was in the middle of the field. The entire Rams offense was 3 step drop/quick throw with a Steven Jackson run mixed in. In the Red Zone with a smaller field to work with and no cushion given to the receivers it forced the Rams out of the only thing that was really working for them all day. Of course, turning the ball over doesn't help much either but I'm fairly certain that wasn't by design.

    Playcalling had nothing to do with the loss today.

    Play execution was the problem.

    ...and holding onto the damn ball.

    The Rams moved the ball fairly well against a very good defense. But continue to shoot themselves in the foot.

    My only problem with the play calling was the Boller QB draw and the naked bootleg.

    Once we threw it deep a couple times (late in the game mind you) it really helped open up lanes for Jackson. Shurmur needs to remember this and do it all game next week.

    If we can stop the turnovers I really think we can beat the Jags. If you're just looking at the stats, you're not getting the whole story. Turnovers aside, I thought we looked pretty good!
