    1. If we make the playoffs, our coaching personnel probably won't change.
    2. Musgrave has had some rough patches throughout the season but he has also draws up our running plays and blocking schemes, which is one area he has done great.

    Less than 15% chance we change our OC, less than 5% chance we get Norv Turner.

    I think this is true. If we make the playoffs, we are unlikely to part with Musgrave.

    Musgrave's offense has been very mundane, but truthfully, I think you have to applaud how he has been able to tailor the offense to what he has. The offense fits the players...a high dosage of Adrian Peterson, and short passes to get the balls in the hands of mediocre receivers from a mediocre QB.

    Lets be honest here...I don't know if it's Musgrave really making the changes or if it's FINALLY our players making plays. Simpson has come up pretty big the last 2 weeks with some key grabs but Ponder has also found his role in being a good manager again.

    Well that's what he claimed he was doing from the get-go, however he (along with our QB) has run into some rough patches along the way. Schematically, he's been sound but actual in-game decisions when bullets are flying he leaves a lo t be desired. He's not good at making adjustments or situationally calling plays.

    I think its sort of both but the biggest thing I'm noticing is that since they've pretty much abandoned using Jenkins in the vertical role, our passing offense has become much more productive. He did get one medium ranged pass there yesterday but the only reason he made that play was because of busted coverage. Instead of us seeing Jenkins trying and failing to beat that DB jogging next to him down the field, now we're seeing Jenkins on short ins and outs or comebacks where he can put his body between the ball and the DB and use his size to our advantage. This is how Jenkins should have been used all along because it was really not hard to see that he isn't going to be useful down the field because he is so slow.

    This has certainly been the problem this year. Good defenses adjust when an offensive gameplan is working, and the offensive gameplan needs to be flexible enough to work around that. We seemed to do that for the first time yesterday with Ponder & Gerhart. Whether we can keep doing that is another matter...
