The Carolina Panthers Should Learn from WVU's Offense

Recommended Posts

Alot is quite extreme. We used it, yes. No one ever sd 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.

i think barner is is likely that x factor guy.

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!

Any offense would look impressive playing in a conference with zero top 20 D's and scheduling powerhouses like Marshall and James Madison.  So innovative they squeaked out a record one game above .500.   The only thing we have in common with WVUs offense is a black qb and a short wr.  Even bleacher report looks impressive in contrast to reading this idiot's article.

baily had the same number of receptions, more receiving yardage and a lot more receiving TDs.

 

not exactly shutting down credibility.

btw, it wouldn't be a bad thing to take after st. louis in taking WRs after this past draft. they picked up both austin and bailey.
