We ran a lot of read option and spread formations at the end of last season. Some of you act lime we just quit running those things. The read option was a big part of our offense at the end of the season. Not as much as the beginning, but a lot nonetheless.

 

Alot is quite extreme.  We used it, yes.  No one ever said to take the "Play" away but as the center of our offense.  That didn't work.

 

Using it as a play is too valuable to get rid of all together.  Cam's Run against Atlanta was a prime example but we used it at a good time.  They weren't prepared for it.

Probably 50% or more of our total run plays the last three games were read options.

Our offense didn't change as drastically as some of you think from the beginning of the year to the end. Yes we tweaked it and ran more traditional running plays, but it really didn't change that much.

We just executed better. The read option was never the issue, we just weren't executing it very well at the beginning.

No where near 50% but that is your story....

 

The read Option was clearly the issue.  Defenses had it gameplanned and figured out.    

 

You're right we didn't abandon it but Cam was under center much more often in the latter half of the season. 

 

Read Option is a gimmick offense.  Plain and Simple.  There is a reason why the NFL never used the triple option as an offense.  It doesn't work in the NFL.  Read Option is a Play ...not an offense.

and the idea that college football has nothing to teach the pros is something that you should talk to belichick about because he obviously doesn't believe it nor does all the other spread football inspired offenses out there. real innovation is coming from the college ranks more than it is in the pros and the pros are adapting to what college is doing. they have to.

A sprinkle here and there would be ok. But no full blown air raid stuff.

I think he can be also. I also think he'd be a very good weapon in hurry up/no huddle. Where he could be used as a WR or a RB. Remember when Chud flanked our backs out? Well I think that play works a lot better with Barner in, compared to the others.

Smith was a 2nd rounder. Tavon was the primary receiver. Credibility shut down!

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
