    Im with Nick, #4 followed by #1. Schotty has hardly done anything with Austin. Don't understand why he can have a screen for Givens with two people blocking for him, and he gains 13 yards and the first down, but when we do a quick screen to Austin, we have no one blockers for him. Just doesn't make sense, give Austin some blockers and watch him pile up the yards.

    He's a ROOKIE! Most WRs don't blossom until year 3! So don't give up on Quick yet either!!!

    Poorly designed plays play a part, but for me, poor overall play calling is the number one culprit.

    I think it's poorly designed play calls overall. There is obviously some rookie learning...but, that should be improving with a coach who gets where he is lacking and works with him. Nothing is improving, and it honestly seems like the O plan has abandoned him totally.

    This is more than just Austin though, it is Cook as well. It seems in general like Shotty hasn't figured out how to get this Offense working as it should. I still doubt B, but I put this much more on Shotty.
