That's been an issue for awhile, play calling. Screens and bootlegs seem to be missing from JG's playbook, and when you have a struggling OLine, those should be mainstays to help protect the QB. Now that Murray is back, we should expect to see more PA passes and more effective, since he is a genuine threat. It really is mind boggling why JG doesn't call more screens and bootlegs, Tony excels at rolling out and throwing. If Tony tucked the ball and ran once or twice a game like he did last week for that nice gain, it really puts more pressure on the Defense. That split second of indecision by a defender will help open some passing lanes.
I'm with ya on running more of those type plays and definitely a head scratcher when it comes to JG's game planning.
