One good thing

I did like Mike Mularkey's additions to the playbook. In particular, I liked the call on one of the TDs. The fins had a 1st and goal at the 2. They lined up with no backs in the backfield - Brown was a wideout.

Then, pre-snap, Chambers moved into the backfield, as the tailback. A moment later, Brown shifted to fullback.

At the snap, the motion went right, and Chambers put up his hands as if receiving a handoff, and ran left. The linebackers showed a moment of hestiation, and Brown got the call right up the middle for the TD.

It was well designed and very well executed.

Yeah, that was a sweet play. The Fins need more creativity like that this year. The quick outs to the WR's worked well last night, and they were wise to stick with them. But something tells me that they won't work for long!
