What it comes down to for me is the WCO concepts are the blueprint for championship football and we have the biggest Archive in the league at our head quarters, but we chose to use 10-20% of it. Now if we where putting up 375 ypg and 30 ppg the current way I wouldn't complain. However I doubt the current way can accomplish that and I know the old WCO can.
Agreed. I would love to see a more ball control type of passing attack (WCO). A 5 yard pass play on first down opens up everything on 2nd down - run play or play action. Yet Harbaugh is cemented in making 1st down primarily a running down. If we all see it, of course defensive coordinators see it. This may work in college where if you have a stud Oline, they can physically dominate the Dline. In the NFL, the gap in talent is not as wide and if the defense knows what's coming, they will more than likely stop it.
I am willing to be more patient with this offense as Kap develops. In AS's second year as a starter in Harbaugh's offense, he had a dynamite 70% completion rate along with a 8.0 YPA (10 games), while distributing the ball effectively. I would fault Jim big time if he got away from that just because Kap can get the ball downfield.
