im not trying to be negative but i think we were a little too conservative. i even thought towards the end of the game that it would have bit us n the butt for a second. i think we should open it up a little more i mean i thought that was part of the reason why we signed these wr . im not saying lets go and be the saints or the packers but just a little more down field that's all. im afraid being so conservative is gonna bite us down the road.
I know some think its great to do a 80 yard scoring drive in 2:17. I just don't think there is a full understanding of the ramifications of such actions. We have a very strong balance, this team is what I would call harmonic or resonant in the balance and that is leading to a maximization of many facets of the game. One, we are continuously making long strong drives down the field, keeping our D fresh, wearing down their D, and keeping the opposing offense from getting in rhythm.
If we start rapid firing, then our defense will not get the rest they need and the opposing teams will do better. No doubt about it. There is trade offs, is it a surprise that all the high powered offenses have horrible defenses?
Our approach is successful, we out "flank" the opponent continuously, we frustrate them continuously, and we eat up that clock and enforce our will. Chaning our system in my opinion is idiotic, we are a force to be reckoned with. It's not like our coaches will get pigeon holed, when the time is needed we'll flip the switch and catch people off guard.
