Alright everyone we all watched the Browns vs Bears today? 

I know I did, I was so sicken by such a pathetic display of offense that I barely finished watching the game.

I would love to know why Brian Daboll continues to use such a "vanilla" offense.  We as fans can see these weak formations and shifts that fool no defense in the NFL.

We have a player in Josh Cribbs that can do a multitude of things on the field, yes he did fumble the ball away today.  But he is not being used in a way that benefits him, he should be used in plays that gets him in space, such as a screen play.  And I don't mean a WR screen, I am talking about him playing tailback and using the screen.

Let's think about what I just said there,  Does this make any sense?  I wanna know from other fans out there.  Honstly tell me if I am wrong about this, it would work though.

I also wanna know why aren't we doing more spread formations.  Spread the defense out and that creates mismatches. 

This leaves a lot of wide outs on linebackers, this benefits us considering that we have three receiver's that can play in the slot roles, they also have the speed to get YAC (yards after catch) something that we have been lacking all year, this also keeps the defense honest. 

It backs them away from the line, this in turn will give our run game an advantage.  Depending on what scheme the team is facing that day this will create some great running lanes for our backs to run through.

The wildcat is effective.  But I would love to know why they don't shift from the wildcat back into a standard formation?  This will confuse a defense all day.

We have played such aggressive defenses that this would through off there entire game plan.  And they would have to account for more than just one play maker on the field.

I'm not saying that I am the next best thing since sliced bread, But I have pointed out just a few things that I would do to generate some offensive numbers.

Go Browns!
