He seems smart enough to realize this is the exact thing that has killed our team. By the end of the game, our D can't stop anybody cuz they've been on the field the whole damn game.
The Nolan effect has a strong grip on this team still!
Well, the Nolan offense not working was more an effect of players being too young and not having capable receivers. I was one of Nolan's biggest bashers, but he did do everything he could to try to fix the offense. Unfortunately his GM skills were not up to the task. But at least he brought in coordinators and tried opening the thing up. If we had Martz still he would have blended in perfectly with what we need. Sing is dumbing the offense down and is most likely reigning Raye in. One of Raye's strengths when he was hired was his track record for maximizing his best players.
I know first hand how it is to be handcuffed by an archaic head coach who gets mad anytime you open things up regardless of whether it works or not and it isn't any fun. I don't want them to go exclusively spread as don't won't work either. I want them to find a balance and take what the defense gives them, instead of trying to bend the defense to what they want.
