"One" Immediate Change You'd Like to See in 2022?

Recommended Posts

No more timeouts called on the first play of the 1st or 3rd quarters.

Not waiting 'til the play clock reaches single digits before snapping the ball on pretty much every play.

More deep pass plays or simply more pass plays.

At least one deep ball per game... Maybe four.

Third-and-long not being converted by the opposing team. 

 

Really don't want to see a 3rd-and -13 be converted for a first down on a shockingly regular basis.

Opposing offenses driving down the field on 5 to 15 yard pass plays between the hashes. Drove me crazy.

Yes!! My wife doesn't watch much football with me, but when she does and it's 3rd and long, I'm always telling her "This isn't a safe down and distance. The Ducks give up first downs in these situations an inordinate amount of times."

Absolutely THIS. It was more likely that the Ducks would stop a 3rd and 4, then a 3rd & 14!

The RB always being the team leader in rushes. A 1,000 yd. receiver and other guys getting regular catches. The qb being, at least, in the conversation for the Heisman on somebody's board. The defense having no, or few injuries, and it will take care of itself.

 

A pundit states 'Oregon's offense is back!' which would pretty much mean all of the above is done.

 

Lastly we never have to hear about how good the dawgs were in the past.

An exciting and electric offense!  Make me want to enjoy watching football again instead of just picking up the paper to check scores the  next day.

A team that shows ready to play to its standard and not down to level of competition. In other words a team that puts up 60 on the Stony Brooks of the world. A team that shows up versus inferior conference comp and blows these teams away.

 

A team that plays game after game to the ability of its roster. A team that improves during the season and does not retrogress,

Fix the injury issues. Been listening to a lot of Bulldog podcast in my log truck the past few days. Mainly to get a read on what Dawg fans think of Lanning, a lot of love for DL for sure. Scott Cochran's name keeps coming up. Dawg fans are big on Cochran. I guess he was sick and not in an on field role with GA. Would love to see DL poach Cochran.

Absolutely more third down stops on defense, ESPECIALLY third and long.

 

More dynamic offense, particularly variations in tempo.  No more 4-minute offense all damn game.

 

Keep foot on the gas when playing with a lead, win games going away instead of just hanging on and milking the clock.

 

Oops I guess that's more than "one" ha ha.

What made them so deviating is the lack of a consistently explosive offense. 

 

We had more false starts in the Kelly-Helfrich era and they rarely hurt the scoreboard... Let alone were game changing. 

 

The offense either needs to avoid all false starts to stay on schedule ..  or have a scheme that allows for some big chunk yards to make the occasional false start irrelevant.

A quarterback that can make correct reads more than 25% of the time.  
 

Check that, a quarterback that makes correct reads MOST of the time.

Up tempo and less predictable offense.

Less unnecessary penalties, especially of the unsportsmanlike variety.  No standing over your opponent after a play like you're some kind of

 

badass. Prove you're a badass during the play and go about your business.

I remember when football was fun. I mean fun for the players, the coaches, the fans. It was even fun when the drunks behind me spilled their beer on me. I just want football to be fun again without all the angst and disappointment. Turn up the fun dial! The score will take care of itself and the players will love the game again.

How about a QB who can pass a ball more than 3 yards down the field?

I’d like to never again see our secondary spotting receivers 10 yards when they only need 8 for first down.

When Mariota was third and 13 I didn’t even worry about it or even Dixon.

Simply playing up to the level of our ability, rather than down to the other team's level of ability.

No more causing the players to yell at the coaches "Run the damn ball!!!".

 

No more pretending the boos from the crowd are aimed at the team.

 

Start rotating the top FOUR backs continually through the season to build a solid deep running offense.

Development of our QBs, giving them game time to get up to speed of the game.

Consistency - when practicing AND during games.

Plays with TWO running backs - spread the ball, share the love.

Passes to our WRs and COMPLETIONS that are further than 2 yards downfield.

A dominant and stout defense, and a FUN offense that combines power with speed.

Go DUCKS!
