Our only two successful drives had heavy doses of run, screens, passes to Olsen and other quick passes. When that was our gameplan we marched down the field. When he started calling these long developing plays they got blown up by the pass rush because the O-line can't sustain blocking for more than 1.5 seconds.

This sums it all up right here, too bad others choose not to see it.

The thing I don't like about the read option is that the offensive line doesn't really know whether they're run-blocking or pass-protecting because the read is made during the play. It seems destined for failure.

In the play that PD is talking about, running isn't an option.

It's a play action pass but as a read option play (in the shotgun formation). The O-line knows that it's a pass, but they're blocking like it's a run (to sell the fake).
