Default Why not....

Why doesn't spurrier use clowney on offense in short yardage situations? His presence in the backfield alone would catch the defenses off guard.

We've all seen the highlights of his days on offense. Has spurrier talked about this in the past? Just curious


I know he would have cleared a hole for Davis there in the fourth.

It is because Clowney does not want to play offense. Although now.. we should be rethinking this.

this is not the problem (even though I still cant believe we ran that play on 4th and inches) nor will you ever see him on offense.

Default Re: Why not....

we dont need clowney on offense, we need to not puss out and either go I formation or sneak it in that situation. our shotgun goaline offense looked alright in this game, but just because it worked the previous time with mike davis doesnt mean you call it again when you should be able to just sneak it.

the previous td by mike wasnt spectacular playcall and execution, it was a spectacular one man effort by davis to get by 4 defenders. when they were in position to stop it before, why would you call it again.

WHY????

We scored 30 and could have had 33 with an easy FG at the end. The offense wasn't the problem tonight, it was the D that lost it.

Enough blame to go around. Offensive Play calling was quite a factor.

Except for the fourth down play call, with was baffling, the offensive play calling was pretty good.

I thought he was solid. Nothing spectacular but didnt turn it over and has some decent gains.

?? Did he ever make it to the 25? We were better off with no one back there. Every kick was in the end zone or close enough. I thought he cost us at least 5-10 yds a return.
