After Rich Rod was hired, I remember hearing our offense would be wide open with tons of trick plays, etc. I don't count last year because the coaches were probably just happy to get positive yards. I know all our counters have been discussed and diagrammed here, but all year I waited for something surprising. After not seeing much, I thought definitely they had been saving something for this game. All I saw was an ill-advised deep pass to Denard.
This isn't meant as a criticism of his coaching, but I'm just wondering what people think. Has it been the injuries and inexperience? Or did people just have the wrong impression of Rich Rod's offense? Even Carr seemed to throw something crazy out there more often.
