The perfect Fullback for our West Coast Offense

Just like in years past the Fullback position is very important when you want to run a balanced Offensive attack. Stanford's Toby Gerhart is the perfect fit. He won't go as high as people think and could be had in the third round. Would be a great complement to the Big Three, Gore, Crabtree and Davis.

Newsflash Superfan: we haven't run the WCO in 5 years.
Jimmy Rae's entire system is and has been the West Coast Offense for the last 20 years. Offensives CoOrdinators run what they know, they don't change systems. He has just changed the formations not the plays.

Raye has been running the Coryell digit system for the last 20 + years.

You're half right, he's run the same system alright, the polar opposite of the WCO, the plays, the terminalogy, and the core philosophy couldn't be more different. But yeah other than those minor details it's the same.

And to pile on, OCs change systems all the time if they're any good. Case in point Kevin Gilbride learned under Jack Pardee and June Jones in Houston the run n shoot, which he then employed for years. He was last seen running a smash mouth offense in NY and won a SB doing it.

He runs the same kind of offense that Norv runs. You also stated that they run what they know, that in turn is not very accurate. He came to this team and followed Singletary's smash mouth offense. When that wasn't working, he moved to the spread. Raye adjusts his offense to fit his players, not the other way around. One of the reasons why Martz never worked out.

Sorry buddy you're wrong.

RE: Can you talk about that? Who do you consider your influences when it comes to that?
“I started under Ernie Zampese, just as Norv [Turner] did. The Don Coryell System, the three-digit pass system. My first introduction to it was when I was offensive coordinator with the Rams under Ernie Zampese and that influence. I’ve cemented my own ideas into that, but that’s basically the first of it of where my introduction to it came. We had Jim Everett at the Rams and Ernie came up from Coryell at San Diego with the three digit system and then I went with Atlanta with Rod Dowhower and the three-digit system. Really, the system, well, the three-digit system, or the west coast system of whatever you refer to it, the nomenclature of how you call in an active play is really just a functional operation of how you operate offensively.”

So no he hasn't run the WCO for 20 years, I don't know where you got that from
