Is a load of crap. That is a losing formula, now that we all know since we all had to witness it this year. It works well for a few weeks until the defense starts to grind down and lose it's breaks and that's when the whole team seems to start to fall apart.
Here is my philosophy. It's a pass to set up the run type of scheme so here me out.
When the offense gains possession of the ball, they start by spreading the defense out. The offense can either run the ball on first down or pass the ball on first down, mix it up. This will make the defense play more honest. They will be forced to play the run or pass even though we're in a passing formation. I'm talking four wide and a running back, run the ball. the defense has to account for the 4wr set. Use this formation periodically, mixing run with pass. Set up in a three wide one tight end and a running back formation. Have a full back or tightend spread out and show pass and than motion him in for a run the first time you use it and pass the second time you use it or vice versa. the qb has to make a few shots down field while in their own territory.
The second part of this formula is when you do get deep into the opponents territory switch everything up. Go to more of a running style offense. two tightends and a running back or two running backs and a tightend. Keep with the same strategy though, mix the runs with the passes. The idea is to keep the defense off balance. Cause even if you get in to scoring position fairly quickly you can still control the clock by running more in the redzone. If you get into scoring position with a couple of big plays on two or three of your drives during the game this will put emense pressure on the opposing defense. If they are worried about giving up a twenty or thirty yard passing strike, you should be able to run all over them. But if your showing them run packages in the redzone and they start to play the run than set up a long passing strike in the end zone, make them back off and keep them on their toes. This is how you out coach a team, this is a great formula to run with the type of playmakers we have. Not to mention a qb that can run this offense with no problem.
what do the rest of you think?
