Everyone here seems to be on Cobb's back over this. Its the system not him! Sending him out in these situations is like using a butter knife, not a steak knife to cut your meat.
We have TWO, countem 2 guys listed as FULLBACKS. Both Non Imports, so I guess the AMERICAN style coaches feel they cant do the job, and only a 190 lb AMERICAN running back can do it. Thigpen 196 lbs, Cobb 190. Brown (number 0 coach), and Forurnier (#38) both weigh in at 230lbs plus. Why arent they used?
When you line up with one or two yards to go and there is one or no running back in the backfield it is pretty obvious to the defense what is the plan. With these two lined up behind the QB the thoughts of the defense may be the same, but I am sure the results would be different. Fake to the one give to the other, give to the first fake to the second; fake fake and QB sneak thru the biggest OL/DL dent or hole. There's even fake, fake and quick pass to a TE.
What we need in this thread are choices and ideas for the OC. No critism, just ideas. Reasonable ones. You can't use a fake punt 'cause Wilbur already beat you to it.
If your idea gets used then you get a gold star. That and $8 will get yu a beer or 4 coffes at the next game.
