Only one person gets this distinction, and it goes to Bratkowski, whom I am betting will receive this almost every week. He single handedly almost cost us this game with his ingenious personnel packages, astute third and short calls, and non-linear play calling. The key point in that link is that non-linearity "gives rise to interesting phenomena such as chaos". Chaos may be "interesting" to the wikipedia editors, but it's infuriating to Bengals fans who must continue to watch this offense.
For example, when the game was on the line, Brat was ok with burning some clock and giving the ball right back to the Ravens instead of trying to put the game away. With JJoe and Jones hurt there was a good chance the Ravens could have capitalized, luckily Zimmer didn't let them.
Sometimes I picture Bratkowski as man who lives in a house filled with junk since his logic is so disjointed. Or, to steal John Stewart's joke about the media, maybe he is like the dog in UP, easily and instantly distracted at every new shiny it sees. It is the only way I can understand the way his brain works.
One minute the guy is a fucking genius, moving the ball with efficiency by pounding the ball down the Ravens throats choreographed to perfectly executed timing routes to a variety of receivers. Then "Squirrel!" he starts calling plays that have no consistency or linear relationship to what just moved the ball down the field against one of the league's best defensive units. No play action passes that are built off the successful running plays you just ran; no TE seam routes to take advantage of the secondary focusing on the WR's; no RB's out of the backfield; no pump fake/ misdirection routes to play off the timing routes. Nothing; it is just organized chaos.
On top of this, he can't coach his players to be a disciplined unit. It is like they are a physical representation of his mind, totally disjointed. One minute they are beating down the opponent, the next they behave like little leaguers.
Mix in the third and short situations where he brilliantly decides to run toward the weak link in the run blocking. We know Gresham isn't a dependable blocker yet, the defense knows this, Benson knows this, Gresham knows this, Brat knows this, and my German Shepherd watching the game does too. But nevermind all that, Brat says "fuck it" and does it anyway. This probably means he was an absolute blast to party with in college but it's a disaster from an offensive coordinating standpoint.
Ideally, we need to begin passing on 3rd and short (like the Pats did to us all day), but there is a small problem with that as well. As our commenters noted, Brat's passing trees receive a grade of F-suck. The route trees are not very complex, which is why we never seem to confuse a defense. It always seems like the yards we earn in the passing game are hard fought because the WR's are always covered. It is not a random fluke that we are a team that has to be near the bottom in YAC's as opposed to teams like the Eagles, Packers, Texans or Colts. It is completely by design (or lack thereof): organized chaos. Bratkowski. Ugh.
