I know my facts. Your Both Wrong, you don't no what the spread is clearly or the system gailey runs! Modern offenses in the NFL tend to mix proven plays and concepts. If a vertical timing play works, a West Coast team uses it to throw deep. Power running teams run horizontal timing plays. The NFL is a results business, and team generally do what works. Coaches innovate. Teams take power running ball-possession concepts, apply them to multiple receiver offenses, and go to work. In Gailey's case, he's essentially mixed a traditional ball-control passing game with west coast timing concepts.The spread option offense is a variant of the more generic "spread offense." It has found unprecedented success and widespread employment in college and high school football. Essentially a hybrid of the traditionally pass-oriented spread offense, the spread option is based on the concept of defensive isolation. The offense "spreads" the defense by aligning in three-to-five receiver sets, using two or fewer running backs in the backfield and often setting the quarterback in shotgun. How does a back have 3,300 yards? how does choice get another 1,000 2 years in a row. Choice left oklahoma because of peterson he went to another team that ran it just as much. Choice ran out of a single back in his second year, gailey ran a power running game, IFORM!!!
Reggie Ball 135-304 1,820 yards
Taylor Bennett 35-58 523 yards
Tevin Washington 74-150 1652 yards
Synjyn Days 8-12 198 yards
135 completions compared to 74....what the hell do you expect a WR to do with that? During the 2006 season they rushed the ball 526 times...in 2011, 718 times.
That was Calvin's last year, The lost P.J who had 3300 yards and Choice first season starting, still got 1000! Your only using Calvin's final year, the passed more that season because they lost a great back and the only guy with talent was calvin, you got to feed him. Basically, all i see is a more effective passing attack with Tevin. Better numbers with half the throws, That would mean better numbers for hill, because there focused on stoping the run, which means one on one all day with a cb, no saftey help. Besides, no team is truly a West Coast, or Spread, It's a mix of what works.
Hill could remind some of Randy Moss when it comes to running a pure, one-on-one deep route.Outside of catching jump balls, he struggles to read coverages and understand how to find holes in a zone. Hill looks uncomfortable with the ball in his hands and resembles a lengthy track star on the field instead of a football player. DOESN"T FIT US, SYSTEM COMPLEX! Hill left as a JR! And for a guy his size I expect better numbers at the combine, He's got 25 pounds on Aj, but only Bench 2 more reps? ALEX DOESN"T NEED A JUMP BALL GUY HE WOULDN"T THROW IT ANYWAYS!
Jenkins is willing to go across the middle and always reaches out to pluck the ball. He was a 2 year starter. He is effective both long and deep but is less of a threat after the catch as he is running his routes. He separates well when running with defenders and is good in securing the catch. Looks West Coast to me, guy who can catch and run more than one route!
Your basically saying, Andrew Luck is not a good qb, because he came from a team that ran the ball 55% of the time. Does no compute!!! Hill is over rated because all fans watch is highlights and you should look at these facts, For some reason Aj was BETTER!
Gailey's, The Offensive Formation: Spread
Gailey's The Rushing Scheme: Power Run.
Paul's, The Offensive Formation: Spread
Paul's The Rushing scheme: Read Option
Illinois Fighting Illini under Jenkins A TWO YEAR STARTER FOR THAT MATTER, AND was the same OFFENSE as Stephen Hill!
The Offensive Formation: Spread
The Rushing scheme: Read Option
So A.J produced better numbers in the same scheme, with just as many starts! /THREAD
I'll trust G.M. and coach's over the board, if we listen to you guys, Aldon wouldn't have been drafted!
