2nd half may be a looong day for the "D" though, against the MASTER.

Yes we do need to run. Need to mix it up more though.

Just a guess they might be trying to keep peyton off the field with all the running.

did you see the wink wink, nudge nudge, I was being sarcastic. In this case, the run didnt set up the passes at the end of the half. That is true.

But it seems that some on here just want to pass pass pass pass like Arians used to do. There has to be a mix, some sort of balance. Maybe no 50/50, It is the 2000s.

We have been there and done the throw it all over the place thing last year and we got put out in the first round.

Mixing up the plays, taking time off the clock and keeping Peyton sitting on the bench is how we can beat Denver.

Looked better once they did the usual, 'change of pace', 'no huddle/check deep/no short crap near the end of the half' routine that Arians was accustomed to.

I don't understand why they don't run that kind of O all the time, but...

Still, you're right. Very solid first half.

One more drive like that will be a good start.

I am afraid of that as well. That is why ball control and keeping the MASTER on the bench is key. The MASTER cant score if he isnt on the field.

A mixture of running and passing taking time off the clock is what is needed in the second half.

I know it worked out with a TD, but why did we spike the ball with :38 and a timeout making it 2nd and goal. Not only did we lose a down and only got 2 shots at the endzone. I thought we could have run a pass, if incomplete, still 25 seconds left. Then run, call your timeout if not in. Then throw on 3rd.

We ended up getting the score, but I thought we rushed that spike and didn't need to.
