To the resident football experts: In the perspective of a coach or player, what were the constructive aspects of the team's performance this past game and what is achievable to improve prior to next game?
I'll be honest, I haven't coached or played organized team football (just a longtime fan of the game, played a lot of intramural football in school and a lot of sandlot), and I'm sure most of us look at this from the typical fan perspective, but I'm sure we'd all love to know what techniques are fixable within a week's time frame, and what can the team do schematically to build upon any positives prior to next game.
For starters, is there something the lineman can change in technique to minimize the tipped passes? / Schematically perhaps? Were Clay and other possible offensive weapons underutilized or did Tanny just not see past 2 or 3 reads perhaps? Do we work in Lane (or other lesser utilized weapons) a bit more underneath or other areas of the field? The left side of the oline seemed to run block well, but did the right side make any strides at all? Enough positives to stay the course or will there be some spaghetti thrown on the wall to see what sticks next game? Any thoughts?
