It's not... and it's easy to see for anyone without a predisposed disposition towards a specific QB preference. The plays are there to be made... He's just not making them consistently. I honestly think he gets one more game to turn it around... then a change is made at QB if he doesn't... Or it should be. 2 division losses, and 3 conference losses to start the year is a near death sentence. Pete has been one of the best OCs, play callers, and playbook creators in the NFL for over a decade under CSP... he didn't all of a sudden become bad at it when JW arrived.
Pete was never a true OC for as long as Sean was in the building. His own chance at running the offense in 2012 wasn't good (I've posted numbers that back that, and of course you've ignored them.) Other than that, it was Sean's offense and Sean's playbook. Majority of this board agree that the playcalling was predictable. It's only a select few of you who ONLY want to blame the quarterback who don't want to actually see it. I don't have a quarterback preference right now. I've criticized Jameis plenty and he's absolutely a part of the problem. But anyone from their couch can see that we're tipping our hand to the defense on 1st and 2nd down. That's a big problem in itself, just like the quarterback play has been a problem.
Tell it to this man...
Yeah? Is every former player just automatically correct now? I legimately don't think Deuce realizes what people are upset about. I personally don't take an issue with what plays were called, I take issue with tipping run/pass to the defense on nearly every 1st and 2nd down.
Before the game got out of hand yesterday we passed nearly 80% more of the time on 1st down than 2nd down, and ran the ball over 70% more of the time on 2nd down than 1st down. The times we did go to the pass on 2nd down we got really good results, and of course some of our best runs were on 1st down. What I'm telling you isn't made up, the results are there to be seen. It's not an unrealistic expectation for fans to want their offensive coordinator to be less predictable with their playcalling. I'm tired of seeing defenders tee off and fly into the backfield unblocked because they know what's coming.
But yes, let a photograph of Deuce (albeit a handsome one) do your arguing for you.
Your takes are starting to take on an unhealthy level of mental gymnastics now... that are bordering on fan boy fatal attraction.
Deuce is not just some "former player"... He played in this system, He knows these coaches, and plays... He actually watches tape, He calls the games, He literally an analyst for this team, He has access to the team... He has more insight into this team than just about anyone around that's not an actual player or coach. He's also not some sensationalist media head that barks garbage to get ratings... He's an honest - tell it like it is guy that doesn't lie or get riled up over anything.
What you legitimately think, your cherry picked stats to fit your pre-determined narrative, and auto-JW-deflection mechanisms... Are more than Trumped by whatever Deuce has to say on the matter. And it's not even an argument. The fact that you think there is one... means you are too far down the rabbit hole.
If Deuce says it's not the playcalling... then it's not the playcalling. "every former player".... Ha!
