Default what would you wanna see change in 2014

I'd like to see us use the TE more in the passing game and go under center when its first and goal from the 1, 2, or 3. That spread crap makes little sense to me when you have a Mike Davis and a OL that averages 315.

Our inability to win field position battles on a regular basis. Our ST makes it hard on the other units far too often.

I would like more consistency from Special Teams and the offensive line on running plays. We were great the first 3/4ths of the year on rush blocking, but after that IDK what happened. It needs to change.

We also need a punter who can punt, and a KO guy who can consistently put it in the endzone. Also need to learn to block better on punt returns.

Joe Robinson needs to go. If you are a coach who brings absolutely nothing to the recruiting aspects of the game, then you better be one darn good coach. When our special teams looks like they looked for the majority of the year, I think it's safe to assume that the coach is not a darn good coach. Surely we can find another ST coach that can coach the players to the level we saw this year, but can help out on the recruiting trail.

I want us to take the football and cram it down the other team's throats -- and I want Brandon to soften up defenses into submission and THEN we turn the Tasmanian Devil (Mike Davis) loose to spin and twist and then take it to the house.

I want us to get mean on the front line and start pushing people out of the way like they aren't even there.

I want SE to teach these guys how to dominate the run game.

We have a stable of talents backs and I want us to maximize what we have. The only way to do that is to create legitimate running lanes.

Yeldon, Gurley and Mason are not better than Davis (or Wilds). They simply have enormous holes to run through.

Emmitt Smith was nowhere near the best running back in football, yet he owns the all-time rushing record. Why? Because his line gave him six-foot-wide running lanes on a regular basis.

Definitely ST. And aside from guys stepping up on the DL and CB I'd like to see someone emerge from the current young group of WRs.

I think I agree with everyone on this. I think he was blessed with good people his first year (Ace and Justice). We still have good people for those positions but they haven't lived up to their potential. As they say in the barber shop, NEXT!!!!

It's not that we don't run the I-form, to me it's the fact that we don't pass out of the I. When we line up in that formation, everybody knows that we only run out of it.
That's why it never works. When we first started using it more in the middle of the season it was fine.
When teams figured out we only ran out of it was when we started to suck at running it.

Elliot Fry fell in our laps. Imagine our ST without him.

Something needs to change, and fast. I won't call for a coach's job because I don't know enough about the situation to say one way or another, but something is wrong there.
