I'll take an offense that can score points.

The Patriots run a vertical offense just like we do, but Brady makes it look amazing.

In the Fox era we've been using a stripped down version of the Coryell offense. Basically, it's a power running game with a vertical passing attack, and the only difference between what Coryell ran in the 70s and what we've been doing under Fox is Coryell used more receivers.

I'm assuming that most people here would like to see a more wide-open offense. Are you looking for a Martz-type system (Coryell taken to the outer limits), a west coast offense, or something out of left field? What do you think?

I am old enough to remember it well. Coryell had a very good QB, would actually throw to his TE (not just for a check down), and yes used more receivers. If his defense had been better he would have a ring.

One that is designed to make the best use of our personnel on hand. Don't want to see a new style come in that tries to shoehorn our players into an unfamiliar offense. With the team we have, we need to continue to have a heavy emphasis on the run, at least for the time being. Especially since we will likely be breaking in another rookie qb next year.

Some say an offense that attacks weak personnel, but I say they all can do that. You have to rely on your QB and your OC to find those mismatches and exploit them. As Davidson Deac says, you want a system that fits personnel naturally. Thinking on the run slows you down. With a good QB--a tall one with an arm who can make the throws, I think we should stay the same. In 2003, look what we did? If Luck is to be the QB, imagine the 2003 offense with more focus on TEs and backs? Imagine if the QB could run? Drastic change is not needed.

I would like to see a NE type offense. Where we have a QB that can get anyone the ball, no matter who it is. Then we can trade some people to get more draft picks and then sucker some other team into trading us their next years high round picks for our low round picks.

Whatever the Saints do.

This with more running, damn they make it look easy.

All I want is for this team to be able to competently run a screen play. We have yet to see it in 15 years

Actually the offense we have been running since Davidson took over is an Erhardt-Perkins offense. Frankly it is the same system run by several teams notably, KC, Denver, and New England. The system is sound but the way we have run it is not. I would be fine running the same system which doesn't require a bunch of relearning just doing it with more of a passing emphasis, more multiple wide receivers, and less predictability. The system isn't the problem so much as the playcalling and execution.

A power running game that doesn't run dive plays on 1st and 2nd down every time. Also, would be nice to see some passes that aren't check downs. I am not asking for much ....

After several years of rather boring run-up-the-gut-no-matter-the-down-and-distance football, I'de like to see a radical shift to the following:

1) Once a game, just punt on third down. It's not like we can make third down conversions anyway and nobody would see it coming.

2) Do a college style option play. We might go through a few QBs but we do that anyway.

3) More laterals. Adds to the excitement.

4) More "grape" style plays where we put all the receivers in the middle of the field and just chuck the ball in that general direction.

5) Hook and ladder

6) More personal fouls. I doubt the 5K matters that much to their checkbooks and it would do wonders for our reputation as mean bastards.

7) Give everyone on the offense the chance to pass the ball. I bet Smitty could throw it a good 45 yards if given the chance.

8) Institute mandatory dancing on the sideline when we score (even a field goal)
