    Why our offense fails......(pics included)

    People have been going back and forth about our offense, and why it sucks balls. I will contend that it is both by design, and by execution. The premise that we have no talent is unfounded. What we have is a coach who doesn't put the talent in a place to succeed, and players who lack execution week in and week out on that side of the ball. These are the reasons some of us have ridden GD since his arrival. Below I have captured just a few plays so you all can see the fundamental design problems, plus the breakdowns in execution. Let's start with the first play we ran, shall we?




    Empty set with trips left. All receivers are accounted for at the line of scrimmage. The design problem with this play, is that James T Kirk, the slowest receiver we have, is the guy we chose to throw the ball to. He has about the same ability to outrun OU defenders, as I do to catch Bolt in a 100 meter race.




    Here is where the execution faults come in. By design, this play is meant to wall off the outside defenders, and cut loose the inside defender to uselessly try and track down the receiver from behind. The receiver circled that is across the line of scrimmage is supposed to block the guy in front of. He whiffs on him completely, leaving the "speedy" Kirk all on his own.



    There is the whiff, and there is Kirk showing his blazing speed getting to the edge. This play was doomed from the start, both by design and execution. The coaches know who on the team can run, and Kirk is not one of those names on the list. He is fairly sure handed, but not the guy you choose when running this play.

    I knew Mike Davis not playing on Saturday would be the death of our offense because it took away pretty much our only mid range threat. Mike Davis has done a great job of taking those hook plays and turning them into to 10-15 yard gains. And he does that pretty much by himself with no blocking help.

    Here is another fine example... Play two from the line of scrimmage. Now the coaching staff had a look of hown that play before it went, so what do they do? They run the exact same play to the other side. And guess what happened? The exact same thing. Kirk gets the ball. Goodwin whiffs on the block. Kirk gets tackled at the line of scrimmage.



    I circled the running back to let you know that by shifting him play side, we are bringing an extra defender to that side also. The defender circled comes down when we shift. Now we are severely outnumbered on the play side of the ball. Why you shift the back when the ball is coming out immediately is beyond me. All it does is negate any cut back lanes that the "speedy" Kirk might have available.



    As you can see Goodwin is coming out to block(whiff) on the OU defender. Kirk is already in trouble, as the OU defender is already flying at him. They have seen this play before, and are halfway to the ball carrier before he even has the ball.



    The "speedy" Kirk has managed to barely get ahead of the defender, but Goodwin's whiff on the other OU defender has left him with nowhere to go. Play doomed, by both design and execution. Which is almost always then case on this side of the ball

    What is the deal with WRs blocking this year? From what I remember we've always had above average blocking from our WRs and this year it is beyond terrible.

    the sound in the stadium was amazing after both of those plays.

    He is trying to confuse the opposing coaches. No one in their right mind would run those plays, so he is hoping that the other team will think that way and not gameplan for them.

    Or

    It is the fault of the WR who didn't block one of the three defenders racing to make the play because he only allowed enough time for us to gain 1 yard versus the 2 yard gain that was Greg's original intent.

    this is great stuff, P. would love to see more as your time permits.

    it's just shocking that those are the two plays we decide to start the game with. actually, it's not shocking. it's frustrating and sad.

    Wait a minute, the guy standing five yards behind the center is the halfback. So where are the quarterback and the fullback?

    Here is another "winner" by GD.

    We are gonna run the counter play that we popped the TD with Monroe on. GD decides to "outsmart" the defense by running it to the short side of the field. There is no room to execute that play on the short side of the field the way we run it. Couple that with the fact that we decide to put the strong side of the formation over there as well, and you see why we failed.



    We line up with twins right and a TE on the edge, meaning OU will shift the strength of their defense to that side, as any good D would do. This is what dooms this play from the start.



    As the play develops, you see Monroe would have a chance if the boundary wasn't so close. There is just nowhere to go. There are too many bodies on that side of the field to turn it up, and the sideline is coming up fast.



    As you can see Monroe is forced to the sideline, and has to try to get what he can. That play might have a chance if either of two things happen.

    1) We run the play to the wide side of the field.

    2) We put the strength of our formation on the wide side, and run the counter to the shortside. As it stands the play was doomed from the beginning!

    Great post.

    However, when I look at it, I see man-to-man coverage on the other side of the field. My internet speculation abilities tells me that when a QB sees that he has the opportunity to either throw into a forest of defenders or not, he'll go for the better option.

    Audibles.

    I didn't think my hatred could grow any worse, but this pictorial and narrative evidence has proved me wrong.

  19. #19
    Really doesn't look like the whiffs mattered by the WR blocking down the field but I get your point. Based on just how the defense was lined up on all 3 of those plays, GG should have checked out of them. He probably doesn't have that option though.

    Great posts. Do you think part of the problem with these plays is GG not having enough experience to audible? I can't recall if Colt did a lot of audibling at the line the past couple of years, but if so, that might account for his ability to overcome Greg 'The Albatross" Davis's play calling.

    Let us go to the sweep by Goodwin to show you how OU has been coached to handle our tendencies.



    Here is a sweep where Goodwin comes from our side, takes the handoff, and is supposed to run with reckless abondon through OU's defense. This is OU we are talking about, and they have been coached to fly downhill at the sight of any player looking as if he is going to get the ball. We could use this action to burn them deep over and over again.

    The two defenders circled are going to start running towards Goodwin as soon as they see him coming towards the ball.



    They are already crossing the line of scrimmage, and Goodwin hasn't even gotten the ball yet. Note OU covering the remaining wide receiver man for man, with a safety that has no chance at helping one side or the other if we pull this ball out and throw it. Also note that our receivers are just gonna stand there, not running a route, nor blocking anyone.



    Notice the wide receiver has not moved, while the runner behind him is being swarmed under by a gang of OU defenders. This is coaching. We could run the action of guys going out for passes while running this play, and come back to it for big yards later in the game, by faking the handoff to Goodwin, and throwing over an over aggressive OU defense.

    The most important thing to remember when reading these types of threads is that Mack will never get rid of GD under any circumstances. The only way we get rid of GD is if he voluntarily decides to retire

    Here is a simple draw play gone awry



    The receiver circled, has to block this man if he sees zone coverage, which OU is in. Instead, he is gonna juke the defender and run a route, and the OU defender will just let him go, and sit there waiting on the RB.



    Note how he runs right past him. You can tell it was designed this way, because the receiver makes NO attempt to even reach out and touch him.



    This play could have had a chance to go for some yards had we told our receiver to block instead of faking a route. GD doesn't seem to understand. If he has the receiver block, then the play works whether it's man or not. If he has the receiver fake a route, then the play only works it it is man for man. Considering the likelihood of seeing man, we should always block it.

  28. #28
    one thing I've heard GD say several times is he makes play calls with no concern of who is actually in the game. I think about this each time that DJ Monroe runs between the tackles (or when Cody runs a sweep on the goal line).

    Yeah but I can kind of support him on that, at least conceptually. You don't want to get so (thesaurus)tendentious(/thesaurus) that your substitution patterns give away your playcalls. Some of that is inevitable, but on 1st-and-10 from our 20, I don't want OU to look in the backfield, see Cody Johnson, and know the ball's going between the tackles. The long pass to Cody is an example of how this can work to our benefit.

    Now having said that, I'm not defending using players to do things they don't do well. There's a logical balance between exposing tendencies with personnel packages and mixing things up to keep the D off balance.

    And no, I am not arguing that Davis hides his tendencies, just that conceptually I agree with not making it obvious that a given substitution always leads to a specific playcall.

    I liked his film breakdowns. I know some people claimed he couldn't evaluate film for $#@!-- I wasn't one of them, I thought his analysis made perfect sense. If this is him, I am VERY HAPPY IN MY PANTS because I've missed his post-game breakdowns.

    By stark contrast here is what a play that fails on defense looks like.




    Every man is accounted for on defense, and we are lined up well, with Gideon over top of the strength of their receiving formation.



    They try a double move, but no one bites. Gideon is already running to where he thinks the ball is going. He is right about the spot. Landry decides he is gonna throw it anyway( as Landry does), even though Kenny has the receiver blanketed.



    The ball is perfectly thrown, and Gideon, while anticipating where the ball would be, does not have the speed to get over there. TD OU.

    Mistakes on the defensive side of the ball are usually because a guy had a quick misstep, and gave the defender a slight edge. If you watch the defensive failures, they are almost always like this. Very very rarely are we in a bad play. That is why so many of us give Boom a pass over GD.

    GD's plays demand perfect execution to get 5-10 yards. Boom's plays just demand solid play to stop a team. perfect execution on a Boom play equals turnover for the other team.

Some of that is inevitable, but on 1st-and-10 from our 20, I don't want OU to look in the backfield, see Cody Johnson, and know the ball's going between the tackles. The long pass to Cody is an example of how this can work to our benefit.

    Now having said that, I'm not defending using players to do things they don't do well. There's a logical balance between exposing tendencies with personnel packages and mixing things up to keep the D off balance.

    And no, I am not arguing that Davis hides his tendencies, just that conceptually I agree with not making it obvious that a given substitution always leads to a specific playcall.
    I 100% agree with you and I also have absolutely no doubt that ISN'T why Greg doesn't call plays based on who is in the game.

    Stoops and Venables knew exactly what play was coming. they've probably seen it a few dozen times. the corner knew to let the WR run past him and go straight for the RB.

    it's comical.

    Can someone please tell me why we don't run the Pistol? It just seems like it would make so much more sense than the typical spread formation. Especially with backs like Fozzy and DJ Monroe.

    Can't Mack figure it out? I just can't believe he looks at the film and says "Great job, Greg. Keep up the outstanding work".

    This is the mind boggling thing. The failures with this offense are so frequently just $#@!ing numbers. It's not even about poor execution. These plays can't be executed because the offense is always outnumbered at the plan of attack.

    These are great posts and all summarize the problem precisely: we run too many $#@!ing plays where 80% of the action takes place behind the line of scrimmage (the ol' east to west bull$#@!). I'd love to throw in this thread a look at Bama's or Oregon's play designs. Because what you'll see are running games that $#@!ing scream it up the middle or inside. Maybe our OL can't block Tinkerbell, but we'll never know. Both Oregon and 'Bama attack the line of scrimmage fast, hard, and immediately. Oregon throws downfield with scary results; Bama doesn't pass the ball as much but they usually throw the 8-10 yard slant or out. Each of these teams run sweeps and/or delays, but they're clearly secondary.

    This bull$#@! "delay", sweep, or baby step east to west is fail (the astute comments about "outsmarting" the other team by sweeping the short side is also good - I caoch 11 year olds and even I don't $#@!ing do that, I already know it and I don't get paid half a mil).

    Our vertical offense seems to come only when we start getting desperate. I swear I'd make a $100 contribution to the Longhorn Foundation if I just saw ONE play where our RB hits an inside hole hard and fast, immedately, as Oregon or Bama does. Thankfully my money is safe wtih me...

    Can you diagram the screens/swing passes that OU threw on their opening drive? I'd like to see the contrast.
