Preseason Playcalling

This fanpost is a follow-up on a comment I left to an earlier post.

I've seen a lot of criticism lately of McDaniels' preseason playcalling.  There are a lot of complaints about no passes being attempted over 20 yards and the reliance on the dink-and-dunk.  Further, they hold the preseason playcalling up as one of the reasons why the Broncos will fail this year. 

It's PRESEASON!  The reason why McDaniels is so vague about injuries is that he wants to limit the information available to opponents- it's not that he's a jerk.  So if he takes such pains to limit the information the Bengals will have about injuries, wouldn't he make an effort not to tip off the game plan?

There are plenty of things to criticize.  Against the Bears, the OL which was so stellar last year looked like it was constructed by Summit Structures of Dallas.  Ayers and Alphonso Smith are coming along slower than we had hoped.  Andra Davis is looking like this season's Niko Koutivides.

If McDaniels comes out against Cincinatti with some uninspired and predictable play-calling, I will be the first to criticize.  Until then, enjoy the PRESEASON!
