    No, they're not. However, it didn't seem to me that the pass plays were all that. I would love to have seen a couple which would have stretched the field a bit more. I say this without having looking back at the game, which I don't seem to be able to do yet...

    A little more imagination in the pass play calls would have helped and I think they should have called a timeout after the second down play to come up with something a little more imaginative, but....

    We've lost our offensive identity.

    It makes some sense to me although I don't know that we've lost our identity as much as circumstances took away our identity or at least the coaches perception of our circumstances.

    With AJ playing cold for long stretches two games in a row either the coaches thought he'd come out of his funk if they kept calling pass plays or AJ could have changed them based on what he saw the defense doing. Either way we've had little offensive consistency and frankly have become predictable.
