We have our pro bowl center back, we have one of the best left tackles in the game, our RT is heading into his third season as a starter and is playing well. We have Silatolu, an improved 2nd year guard and Hangman starting at the other guard. I believe with the return of Kalil and more of an emphasis on the run our line will be very good. Hopefully, will be better when the Rook is ready to play.
Defenses gameplanned to stop the read option and Chudz was too damn headstrong to reaize it wasn't working. Once we shifted to more of a pro style offense. We played better. Obviously giving Cam the option to audible helped too. And that is where I think the read option becomes an asset.
Now that we are away from running it as our base offense. Defenses cannot just line up and take away the read option. When Cam sees a defensive alignment that is favorable to the read option. He calls an audible and runs it. What I like about the read option it is that we have, Run, Pass or Read Option. Gives defenses just one more thing to work on when they play us. As long as we don't fall in love with it again.
The run against Atlanta last year was perfect example of how awesome it can be if we use it when they least expect it.
