McCarthy’s playcalling today is way off. Aikman makes a good point about other teams running wild on Pitt. There is an element of recognition here. Even if McCarthy wanted to start out pass happy, our passing game isn’t good right now and he needs to recognize that. He’d counter argue that he’s sticking with the pass because of unfavorable “down and distance” – one of his favorite expressions. But the fact is, we don’t appear to unpredictable right now running only on first downs. Let’s get creative Mike – you’ll have to be when facing LeBeau.
Offense looks awful
