I really think we would have had a better chance to pickup yards if we come out in I-formation & wide recievers split out wide. By doing goal line offense they just stack the box & pound our offense.
If we did use a regular pro set as you describe, we would either have man converage on 1 WR or the defense would keep the safeties back to help and leave only 7 defenders in the box. Most of today we dealt with 8 men in the box, minimum.
You make a good point, stacking 9 men in the box was probably, to some degree, a reaction to our formations. If we show 2 TEs and a motion a WR inside, I don't see how you could do anything but stack the LOS with at least 9 guys.
Maybe Sing and Raye think they should still be able to win those 11 on 11 battles
