Why the Offensive Shackles?


Spags blitzes and takes chances with the defense...gambling w/blitzes that backfire and lead to TDs for the opposition.

So why does Spags not follow the same strategy on offense? He has to know that, right?
What's good for the goose, is good for the gander...right?
(I can't believe I just used that saying...I'm 46 and that's the first time ever, folks!)
Do I win anything? lol

I know that Spags believes in being very aggressive on defense...he learned from JJohnson, one of the best!!
So, why does Spags get so nervous and conservative with the offense and reign in Shurmur?
If the personnel really didn't have it down and forced him to alter his play-calling....I'll accept that.

Although I BLAMED Shurmur's play-calling all last year on these boards...I hope I'm wrong!
It can't ALL be on Shumur.
Shurmur can't be that conservative...can he?
DC Fritz Shurmur was very aggressive....I mean, Pat's Dad made it freakin rain with blitzes...he made Kevin Greene a star!!
Fritz HAD to instill that in his kid growing up....he just had to!
Shurmur's a young guy.....and can't possibly be a 3yd-and-a-cloud-of-dust style of OC? Can he?
He hasta be envious of other offenses that open it up? Right?

The players have ALL been a year in the system and will know what Shurmur wants.
The Rams have enough average players to make a game of it, I think.
Certainly, enough decent players to execute a creative game-plan.....
QB - Feeley is a MASTER of this offense(or so I'm told by Spags/Devaney/Shurmur, etc).
RB - SJ is a true weapon and 2nd leading rusher in the NFL....
WR - Good enough WRs to carry out an aggressive gameplan, if called correctly.
OL - Better than the Bears....on paper, anyway!

But we'll know this year. Unless Spags again wusses out and plays the puppet-master with Shurmur...
we should see more agressive play-calling this year. imho

Thoughts?
