Good point though it is worth noting that Sean felt they could wear the Packers down/limit the effectiveness of the Packers' offense by running the football. It was very, very hot on the field and coming in the expectation was that the team that played better in the trenches would win. I do think we will see more passing from Winston and keep in mind, we had some chunk plays drawn up but Green Bay played well. Jameis wisely checked it down or threw it away or ran when he could. Lastly, we had a lot of short fields, which minimized some of the way plays were being called.People thought we were going to be this crazy run and shoot offense because of Winston but that’s not Payton and that’s not what we need from Winston. Dink and Dunk offense is boring but if run right you can dissect a D and rip their soul out. I said in another thread. Take what the D gives you, don’t turn the ball over and we’d be fine.
