The biggest difference between JH and BW is that Montana, after two years of mediocrity, had a team capable of slicing and dicing defenses. It was great to watch the pass set up the run and then back to the pass, etc. dink, dink, dunk all the way down the field. Frustrated defenses to the point where the deep ball became available.
The current bunch is where BW was in his first year, but without the probowl right side of the OLine. They have tools and when they get the plays down I would predict major success. Listening to JH explain the game at press conferences is such a treat after the last two HCs. Smith will likely be very good in this system if he can stay healthy.
