I like the zone read offense, but not as the mainstay of the offense. Like the wildcat, use it in certain situations to catch defenses off guard.

Here's what I don't understand though, we finished last year 7th overall- why make such a drastic change? Also, DLo excelled in our prior power running schemes, so why do they think he can't be "featured" or used more now?

I'm a big proponent of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory. I understand the need to evolve and stay ahead of D's, but to change your core philosophy is a little mind boggling.

This is what I wanted to say too

supposedly. falls under the "i'll believe it when i see it" category.

joe person write-up, btw.

one of the few times he actually wrote something that was kind of worth reading and that wasn't 3 days behind everyone else.

Wow we're 13th in rushing? That really means nobody runs the ball anymore.

Given that Chud's worked under Norv and Marty I'm surprised this hasn't been more his MO. Instead it's more like Cam Cameron who's been his influence, trying to be too cute on O
