    What would you suggest? It's not like we have had success running outside, or throwing screens or quick hitting slants or plays down the field. :icon_shrug:

    I don't recall us trying much other than LT up the gut. Where was the pitch?, where was the run outside McNeill.

    The playcalling SUCKED bigtime today. It is incredulous how a so called Offensive Guru can call a game like that?.

    YES the O line were dreadful, yes Rivers was horrible but the playcalling did not help early.

    I was saying this the entire game... "watch they'll run it up the middle for a lose" BAM.... we run it up the middle for a lose.

    EVERY ANALYSIS leading up to this game was saying, don't run it up the middle on Minnesota. Go left, go right, screen pass... whatever.

    Extremely frustrating game. Really sad.

    The O-line was horrible today.

    And when we going to start using Cro. on returns? why is this obvious to everyone but our coaching staff?

    I wish that we could open holes the size that Adrian Peterson had in the second half. They mandhandled us up front on both sides of the ball. Embarrassing.....

    Maybe Lt can't figure it out, if there is no place to run up the middle break it outside. It's not like great backs don't do that.

    Nowhere to go when linebackers are shooting the gaps right when the ball is snapped and you do nothing to make them pay. Why don't we have a five yard pass plays to use against a six man blitz?
