There were moments of gold and there were flashes of light. Hey, if now is not the time for a little Meatloaf then there will never be a time.
During the preseason we saw what we thought could be with this offense. We saw some bizzaro formations with 3 TEs bunched and we ran out of that. It looked like we would utilize Kyle Rudy and create some mismatches. During training camp Shank was all giddy about how Musgrave was going to use the TEs in this system. We had dreams of running with 5 Purple hogs up front and 3 pretty good TEs to boot. When we weren’t pounding Angry Peterson down people’s esophagus we were going to pretend like we were running AP and then go up top to Jenkins, Rudy, Shank, Percy, B_Twice.
Oh. It all sounded so good. Weeks 1,2, and 3 hit and it seemed like Bilford Musgrave forgot what we wanted to do…you know that, and players just were not making plays.
But in Kansas City…we saw glimpses…
Billy Musgrave held us like this and he touched us like that
And I have to admit that it’s all coming back to him nooooooooowwwwww!
Shank and Rudy combined for 9 catches (half of McNabb completions) for 102 yards. McNabb targeted the TE combo a combined 12 times (nearly half of his targets). There were plays called that attempted to get the hands into his play makers. Percy had 4 carries for 67 yards, including a 23 yard jaunt and that is to go along with his 5 catches for 42 yards.
Bill can barely recall but it’s all coming back to him now!
Still a long way to go. I thought we wanted to get Angry Peterson involved in the passing game this season. So far he has 9 catches for 49 yards. I’m going to call that not very involved. I thought we wanted to control the clock? We have had 13 3&outs this season. I’m going to go ahead and say we are not controlling the clock all that well if we have THIRTEEN 3&outs through four tilts.
Bill, we forgive you all of this and we forgive you all that
We will forgive and forget IF
It all comes back to you NOW!
