Default Offense just not "clicking"?

Placing aside the special teams disasters......

Is it just me or is our offense just out of sync? Poor route running and the fact Ben doesn't seem to hit a reciever in stride. Looking at the passes we complete more then likely are a stop route. The QB is banged up, but I thought the fake spike was all great call by Arians, but what the hell happen there? Do you think we are resting starters during the week a little too much?

Could I please get an answer to why Moore continues to replace Mendenhall? What does a older less talented runningback bring to the table? Redman is at least bigger. Mendenhall is a better back and Redman is a better blocker. More props to Arians I really liked bringing Legursky in at fullback on the goal line.

IMO I thought play calling was improved, execution was...............

If you look at the production on the offense during the first quarter this year, our Offense has been pathetic. I don't know why but they need at least 3 possessions to score. Play calling and execution has been very poor.

They were terrible once again. Its kind of funny watching some people say "ah, well, yeah, they did great, they were scoring yesterday, blah, blah..."
But if people think scoring 14 points is going to win games......Not. We need to sit Moore. I agree...Where was Redman? Or even Mendy?
Dumb penalties again, receivers bumbling routes, Arians idiotic play-calling....
Far from good.

I think Arians has made leaps and bounds since that crap against the saints, but saying that I want someone else next year ! I thought the jets playcalling was really good...lot of short timing routes that kept the clock moving ,that direct snap to LT and the dirty sanchez bootleg was a brilliant! God with the young recievers on this team we need someone with an imagination and know how when it comes in- game adjustment to what teams are trying to do.

I thought the same thing about the jets playcalling. After the "Dirty Sanchez" (LMAO) we all looked at each other like "wow". The D seemed to be on their heels that series.

I can't believe we souldn't take advantage of the Wallace - Cromartie match-up! Talk about a mismatch and on top of that the corners looked to be jamming them?

I think they've improved greatly. After watching the offense struggle through every game since Oakland, I was with you last week.

But in my opinion, the offense looked pretty good yesterday. The most import thing I saw was the redzone offense. Besides the last drive whicn amounted to 2 plays from 9 yard line with 9 seconds left - quite an anomoly - the redzone offense was good. In a normal game where the opponents defensive backs are not permitted to maul our WRs, the offense would probably put up at least 10 more points.

This was a close game against a playoff team that came down to the wire. It isn't a horrible loss by any stretch, and it should hardly feel at all like the downer everyone is describing. Despite what 90% of the people on this forum are sayint, the sky isn't falling.

I'm with you here, but don't you think we need to run better routes and have better passes?
