Popular Post JiF Posted September 20, 2022 Popular Post Share Posted September 20, 2022 Is the number of pass attempts vs. rushing attempts after 2 games. I realize they've been playing from behind in both games but that has to change. Carter is averaging 4.9 ypc and Hall is averaging 5.6 ypc. I'd argue, the offensive line on paper is better suited to run block vs pass block. With the emergence of Wilson, the threat of Davis/Moore to stretch the field, the Bengals should be a little bit more hesitant to sell out vs. the run. Hopefully seeing less 8/9 men boxes, asking Flacco to throw the ball 40+ times a game is not a recipe for success. I'd really like to see more balance from this offense. I know score/situation dictates play calling but there were way too many calls IMO (and I like Lil Mikey) where they were running 5 wide, or motioning a RB out wide and not even giving the threat of the run, which I just think is a missed opportunity when you have backs like Carter and Hall. Seeing that they brought Ty Johnson to pass block on a few plays, they might be concerned with Carter/Hall's ability to pick up the blitz but I really think they need to do a better job of committing to the run game to prevent from having to play from behind each week. 28 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
