    Getting the first Norval thread of the year in.

    It's time for Norval to shake that bad reputation and take this team all the way. :abq2:

    Positive: I was happy with his play calling the last 2 weeks, he seems to be adjusting (A YEAR AFTER THE FACT) to teams just pinning their ears back and blitzing Rivers.

    Negative: He used the 1 Ryan Mathews run as an excuse to say he was happy with our running game. Other than that run, we had no push the entire game.

    "Other than that run, we had no push the entire game."

    Not true we did have some push, we were passing it and honestly scoring fast enough, and with good enough position, to not have as many plays as the Cowboys.

    Mathews 5 yards per attempt
    Todman 5 yards per attempt Long of 17 yards
    Tolbert 3 yards per attempt long of 8 yards

    I wouldn't say we have NO push or did have any yards. 5 yards is good for a RB 3 yards isn't that bad, especially with few carries.

    Man, I've got the fever bad... I was just happy to see a new thread!

    Anyway, I'm not a Norv hater, but his track record is just not good enough for me to be a 'fan'. I'm hopeful that he can make me love him this year.

    As for the run game, I'm hopeful that there are two things which will help it this year which we haven't seen in the preseason:
    1. Establishing the pass will open the run.
    2. Our O-line can get stronger later in the game as the D-line get tired.

    Is it really only August 24th!?!

    Erumm.... You do realize that those "calls" were made for pre-season games and focused on being able to see what OUR players did in executing them rather than what the opposition did to counter them right? No "game planning" - no "adjustments", etc...? Personally, I was more impressed by PR's on-field coaching to his RBs about blitz pickups..

    Do you think Norval would continue to have Randy McMichael try to block Ware one-on-one in a regular season game? I don't - he just wasn't worried about who they were lined up against, or expecting PR to audible out of running to that side when he saw the miss-match after the initial play call - they simply ran it anyway and got that play on film.... (Lordy at least I HOPE that is what happened! :D)...

    Bottom line, I honestly feel the exhibition season is not the right time to be concerned with play-calling on either side of the ball. The Coaching staff, (again hopefully), has an entirely different set of considerations than they will have come Sept. 11th... Right now its all about reps and evaluation.

    If ski gets the defense revved up and they play as a true top five team, Norv will have a championship to add to his resume. The offense even at it worst has been better than the defense at it's best. It's real hard to win Lombardi's like that.

    Anything bad that happens is Norv's fault, anything good that happens is in spite of Norv. I think that covers 95% of all posts relating to Norv.

    You can't say there's a story, then not share the story! Also, I want to see Rango.
