Offensive Gameplanning


The Bengals offensive playcalling is in complete disarray.  I understand their stance on establishing the run early and often and sticking with it, but at a certain point something has to give.  They went to the pass in the second half but no first half rhythm was established.  While many would consider the first half running numbers to be satisfying, Benson only had 55 yards on 15 carries.  Unfortunately, every running play is predictable.  The push up the middle was non-existent, wide ranging sweeps were not effective considering the broncos speedy ends, and worst of all is that the offensive line is considered to be a better run blocking unit than pass blocking.  Other than the drive which ended with the 2 consecutive sacks, the pass blocking looked fine.  Which raises the question, why not pass early and often and set up the running game instead of the other way around?

 Ocho, Coles, Henry and Caldwell, the so-called "4 x 4" relay team, should get the jump as soon as the clock hits go.  I understand that Marvin was fine with Henry catching the only ball thrown his way, but why was only one ball thrown his way.  It seems they sent Henry on only deep routes.  The man can catch the ball; send him on short, intermediate routes if need be.  Mix it up.  All four receivers can go deep.  All four can go short.  Get the ball to the playmakers.  Where are the quick slants?  

I'm tired of sitting through Brat's unimaginative playcalling and routine running calls.  When is Marvin going to let him go and move the offense in a new direction.  Leslie Frazier and Chuck Bresnahan couldn't cut it and look what has finally happened to the defense.  When will he learn that the same can be done to the offense?  Bratkowski never seems to be criticized.  Too much talent to go to waste.  Now is the time to make the move Marvin.
