- get the ball in Jennings’ hands – even run a reverse or something – just get him the ball today.
- get the ball to James Jones. Jones is a guy Tenn likely hasn’t done much preparation for Jones and what he can offer because there is very limited tape on him from this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if McCarthy has game-planned some for Jones today.
- open up the passing game with Donald Lee, Tory Humphrey and Korey Hall.
- don’t abandon the run even if it’s not working that well – keep a nice mix of plays so that at the least, Tenn has to guess re what may be coming next. Also, don’t be afraid to mix some plays in for Brandon Jackson just to give Tenn a different looking back.
- Misdirection plays – don’t keep running the same straight-up zone stuff that seems so predictable. Run some misdirection plays, some naked bootlegs (for QB keepers) and a reverse or two. Just mix it up today.
- Defense can stuff the box but I kind of want Chillar to start in order to help defend the TEs considering Collins is a big fan of TEs.
- Instruct Bigby to have a big hit on Chris Johnson early on – just to remind him that life in the NFL isn’t just one easy 60 yard TD after another.
