Anyone surprised we didn't split Barkley out into the slot?

I don't recall us doing this even once. I thought we might given our depleted WR corps. It would have forced the defense to account for another receiving threat.
I was crying for Shurmur

do this during the game. Especially on third and long, put him at wr. Maximize his skillset
I'm more bummed than surprised.

This staff being so inept and not using guys the right ways doesn't surprise me in the least.

Us were yelling it at the game - and now we read their defensive plan was to force us to pass - horrible horrible not to do it - terrible game coaching

Surprised at all. This coach lacks creativity and makes no in game adjustments.

this in my post below, we bring in on 3rd down and we use him to pass block or as a check down....GET THE MAN DOWN FIELD. Use gallman in Pass pro.....go a double back set and motion Saquon into the slot.....nope

Agree. Let him exploit the open space opposed to having to juke or run through defenders to get a first down.
Barkley was split wide left

on at least one play.

He had a CB lined up on his face. Went deep down the sideline and Eli never looked his way.
Shurmur not creative enough

He doesnt adjust well during games. We run our O and players need to adjust to it instead of the other way around.
we score on the first drive  
cjac : 9/16/2019 9:37 am : link
the other team makes adjustments

then Shurmur cant adjust to the adjustments
