    Yeah back 20 years ago when we had overwhelmingly superior player talent in all aspects of the game, this worked. Ginger is still living in the 90s.

    But shit, even back then we had coaches who knew how to mix it up and be unpredictable when necessary.

    Execution was vital when you have the lead and want to grind out the clock, it's gonna be Emmitt Smith right, Emmitt left and Emmitt up the middle, Emmitt Emmitt Emmitt and the defense knows it, can't stop it because of perfect execution. Those days are history - today they CAN stop it. And do. Today you gotta be able to scheme the fucks, make them think Emmitt, keep that threat there but while they're looking for the jab, stick 'em with the bolo punch.

    All of the above are foreign concepts to Ginger.

They're into "packages" for gadget guys which take Zeke off the field therefore removing our greatest threat.
    I mean he does need rest. He can't play every down.

    He doesn't have to carry the ball every down or run with a catch. He is a threat on the field, not on the sideline. I can see him needing a breather after a long run, but this isn't really what we're talking about. I could have let it be known I understand there are exceptions to "never have him on the sideline" but I assumed we all understand that.

    What we do have is, they take him off the field in critical situations where you NEED him in if only as the threat he represents. They can't seem to grok that you can run your gadget plays with Zeke still in there. They gotta have "packages" that don't include their most dangerous player, because they're just smarter than everyone else.

    You can't run a NFL RB 30 times a game. We run the ball more than that.

    You do realize you're trying to talk sense into a guy that claimed we could win the division with only 4 wins, right?

    Can we explain that "logic"?

    the idea is to use the gadgetry with Zeke on the field. Then, the defense is certainly screwed. They will get caught buying into the gadgetry, and Zeke will make them pay. And dearly.

    I think you're giving our offensive coaches too much credit.
