    Let's come up with some plays for inside the five. Maybe we can mail the best ones to the team. Lol


    Why not just line Clowney (high school running back) and Watt up in various formations. Wishbone and the I. No one is stopping those two three runs in a row. We can get creative and fake to one in the I and pitch to the other. Options. Oh my.

    Ole Butt Chin has got to get more creative.

    Here's mine:

    Get a new head coach and/or offensive coordinator. BOB will always make the wrong call. Even if it's brilliant, if BOB calls it it's gonna fail.

    Get in the shotgun formation.

    Have your franchise QB run towards the sideline (need at least one linebacker and one safety in pursuit), then have him take on two to three tacklers while trying to muscle his way into the end zone.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    I'd be all for putting #99 on the O-line for 2-4 crucial plays each week.

    Shitty playcalling
    Shitty clock management/Shitty timeout management
    Shitty challenge management
    Shitty talent evaluator
    Shitty talent developer

    What does this guy do well? (Besides the same repeated press conferences after losses)

    Sorry. Didn't mean to get OT on this thread. That's on me. I gotta do a better.

    We dont need to be creative. We need to be more traditional. How about lining up in a big set handing off goal line and then maybe faking a hand off a letting a te slip open.

    Runs for negative yards are actually a boon, because it opens up more of the field for the next play!

    Second Amendment enthusiast Bob O'Brien loves the shotgun formation.

    This was pathetic display of play calling in the red zone... just pathetic. I do think we miss our FB on short yardage plays and we haven't really developed a TE to play in a lead blocking role. On the scramble on 4th down, what the hell was Fuller doing hiding behind the DB. We also ought to use big Thomas down there on a alley op! Glad we won, but just sick of not winning the way we should.

    1. Put Watt in there, if just as a decoy to draw their attention.

    2. No short yardage bunch formations. The OL sucks so have a 4 wide receiver set which would create space for Watson to run it in.

    Why not just line up in some sort of professional set; could be 2 TE, could be some motion across the formation, could be an empty backfield and a bunch of WRs on 1 side and single coverage on the other, could be whatever, and just call a ****ing NFL redzone offensive play and not some college bullsh!t.

    Wow, so everyone can make fun of it when it doesnt work like Watt and Wilfork? Everyone always has great ideas when something doesnt work. BOB did a lot wrong again, but that goal line stuff was on the Oline, couldnt protect or move the Dline at all.

    Edit: He called pass plays where Watson decided to keep it instead, he called run plays where the Oline couldnt move anything. He went for it in a good situation.. Sometimes you guys just want to get on BOB for everything. He sucks but damn, you gotta hold some of the offense accountable there. Watson tried to run it 2 of the times.. throw the ball dude, Blue was open on one and I would rather him take the goal line hit than you.

    Hey i have one..... how about not coming out in shotgun on 4th and inches.

    I swear my little 2 year old can be a better play caller than that incompetent fool.

    Lol then he should take a delay of game penalty. I think the Oilers did that a bit back in the day.

    We could add Clowney as a full back, call it the toro loco. What could possibly go wrong
