I wish we'd use Rice more, in the run. I'd like to see Rice get AT LEAST 20 touches a game. I feel like we're stuck in an identity crisis. We want to develop a heavy pass game, but then we paid Rice millions and it's a waste of money if we're bringing him in for 15 touches.
I just hate when Rice doesn't get his touches. You have Rice and a bruiser in Vonta in the backfield, it's ridiculous.
I agree, that we should've run the ball more often. Aaron Rodgers, arguably the best QB in the game right now, proved that even he couldn't just throw the ball around and succeed against a good defense. The Packers ran the ball more often against the Bears and (surprise surprise) the Packers won easily.
I think Cameron right now is like an overly enthusiastic kid playing with a new toy. We get it Cam! Joe Flacco is on fire. We are all happy about it, but lets not forget that we have a RB and a FB that have been great for a long time already!
I have to support our offensive coordinator on one thing however. The idea, that Rice needs a certain number of touches for us to win is bogus. Remember, the run-run-pass attack has been equally ineffective. We need to adjust to every game accordingly and unfortunetly Cam Cameron gets carried away sometimes.
We had a winning formula already against the Eagles by setting up the run with the pass in the first half. We scored easy, so suddenly to change all that was just stupid.
