How Do You Improve The Irish Offense?

Some simplistic ideas from a non-football mind to help the lethargic offense.  If somebody doesn’t do or say something, we’re not going to run the table with just our defense.

** Figure out a way to get TE Tyler Eifert the ball.  Sure he contributes as a WR, TE, and blocker; however he is not getting the ball.  Kind of a waste of a huge All-American tight end.

** With Eifert double-teamed find the open receiver.  It would appear that some pretty good matchups have to materialize with all the attention Eifert is receiving.

** George Atkinson III has got to be given the ball in space.  End-a-rounds, screens, passes in the flats or in space, something better than having him struggle along with the offensive line blocking.

** In the Michigan State game Everett Golson over threw a couple of passes.  He’s got to be given the chance to try again.  On the first play Chris Brown on another fly pattern deep, deep.

** If you have a mobile quarterback and you don’t use him in that capacity at least to keep the defense honest, what have you gained?  Does the threat of injury out-weigh loosening up the defense? 

** Help from special teams.  Punt returns Davonte’ Neal is ranked 77th.  Kick-off returns Notre Dame is not even listed in the NCAA statistics.  Neal is not going any more than John Goodman did last year in calling for fair catches.  On kick-off returns, the Irish to some extent are a victim of their own success on defense.  Between touchbacks and not giving opponents many kick-off opportunities, Notre Dame has only ran back 5 kick-offs for 106 yards.
