Re: our game lead late in game
well, one of the problems is that late in the 4th quarter when we get the ball, we run the same plays over and over and over w/no variance.
We could possibly be the most predictable offense in the 4th quarter in the entire NFL.
We either :
pass.....pass.....pass (which takes very little time off the clock)
or we run up the middle....run up the middle...run up the middle (ridiculously predictable), and we usually get stuffed because once we do it once, our opponents know its coming on the next play again. And again on the 3rd play.
Thats one of the reasons we can't keep the ball in the 4th quarter. Arians HAS to run some different plays in the same sequence of downs.
