On Sunday after the game Lee Evans strongly suggested that running the ball more in the red zone would have been a good idea.
“You let your linemen, you let Marshawn do his thing,” said Evans when asked about the red zone performance. “I think we had some momentum running the football. I think that’s the most frustrating part about it. When you gameplan week to week, you look at what’s going to work down there and one of your mentalities is you’ve got to run it down their throats in the red zone. You have to be able to do that and we didn’t.”
On Monday Jason Peters was posed a similar question.
“I think we could have thrown in a run or two, but we have to execute the plays that are called and make it work,” said Peters. “I think we could have run it a little bit more.”
When told that head coach Dick Jauron conceded Monday that Marshawn should have gotten more touches particularly in the fourth quarter, Peters had more to offer.
“That’s unlikely for a coach to admit it, but he took it on his shoulders to admit that he should have run it more and we know we should have run it more in the red zone.”
Kind of hurts to realize that now.
