  • Why did Shanny stop running?

    That 16 play 7+ min. drive in the second half ending in a Redskin TD worried the crap out of me. They were running it down our throat. The perfect answer to our Star Wars Offense.

    Then comes the third QTR bringing 2 Quick b2b td's on turnovers. 21-7 Skins. Game in hand.

    Guess how many running plays Shanny dials up the rest of the game. FIVE !

    Did Shanny actually think that RG3 could match light sabers with PFM?

    When those 5 rushes resulted in negative yards or close to it, and the game quickly turned from a 14 pt lead to a deficit, the decision was made for him. He could've maybe stuck with it for a LITTLE longer, but it would've chewed too much clock.

    Think about it. The one good drive they had running it took like 8 minutes or so. And that was with good gains. Once we started stuffing them, it was all but over.

      I was pleasantly surprised that he TOTALLY abandoned it SO EARLY.

        He doesn't always Tanahan, but when he does, he dafts, doodles and abandons the run.

          He forgot what it's like being a Mile High! Lack of oxygen to the brain...

              look at the drive charts starting in the 3rd after the Broncos were down 21-7

              http://espn.go.com/nfl/playbyplay?ga...27007&period=4

              when the game got to be 21-21, shanny ignored the running game for one series and then the turnovers hit.....

                I'm no defensive specialist but it looked to me like the d line went to a 2 gap tactic after halftime - not much running to be had in the 2nd half

                Maybe someone more astute than I can look at what the front 7 was doing and either confirm or advise me to prepare my anus?

                  So this was Shanny's 2nd half game adjustments.

                  On Defense he'd fake an injury every other play until PFM'ings pain meds wore off and we'd have to forfeit.

                  &

                  On Offense he'd stop running in order to get RG3 killed. Thereby getting a forfeit because half our D would be now hauled off to jail.

                  Welcome back Mike!

                      Look at the drives. After we scored to make it 21-14, he ran 3 times with Morris for 6 yards I believe, result was a punt. We tied it, next posession they go pass, we stop em, go up 28-21.
                      We stuffed the run in the 2nd half, and then pulled away.

                        I think panic set in after the 3 & out when we made it 21-14.

                          I think once we shut down some runs, then scored, shanny felt the run to win strategy was out the door.

                            This. Shanny felt like at that point he would have to score at least 3 more times to win and that he wouldn't have time running the ball. Plus the Broncos weren't exactly getting blown off the LOS.
