My camp thoughts after today. Expect a conservative, run offense.

Wait until our first game to freak out.
I know that with the team I work for, we have specific things we work on every day. Today could have been a day that they focused on the I-formation. Just a few days ago, Zod said we were working on the zone read. I wouldn't expect a drastic change in the offense, just an overall smarter decision making by players and coaches.
Get a grip people.

I think it's a good thing if we're going to run a more conventional offense and run it more with the RB's. Cam will run plenty on scrambles and will get plenty of pass plays in as well, but we need to run an actual NFL offense and not look like the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets out there as Chud had us doing for the first half of last year.
I also think a more conservative passing game will benefit Cam a lot. How often have we seen Cam take the checkdown or a WR run a slant? Not often. We all know Cam can get the ball deep, but having a solid short/intermediate passing game could work wonders for our offense as well.

I'm okay with a conservative, run first offense. I'm not okay with Foxball where we go up 7-0, 14-3, or whatever then try to sit on a lead with run left, run right, run middle then punt philosophy. Drove me nuts.
Keep putting points on the board.
The thing that worries me is that Shula has never been an above-average coordinator. When he's won games, it's been because of his defense more often than not--he doesn't really have any experience putting up 32 points when he has to. And the Alabama and Tampa people will tell you that in the 4th quarter when they needed points, he rarely put together a drive to get it done. Very predictable, particularly in the red zone. He's a ball-control, risk-avoidance coordinator that head coaches love because he's not going to call a game in a way that shoots us out of it by halftime. He can create a game plan and break down film as good as anyone around, and he's a great quarterback teacher in terms of technique. But when he puts on the headset and makes decisions, something gets lost in transition. I hope that with Cam, he recognizes that the quarterback gives the offense some unique abilities that should be exploited. I'm just not optimistic that an NFL coach with his level of experience is going to change his stripes, and we don't have the defense to win like Tampa did in the late 90's.

If they are going back to more of a power running game we will dominate time of possession with the help from our defense and we will score lot of points. We got to many threats in the end zone for us not to score.
Cam, Tolbert, Stewart, William, & Barner for rushing
Olsen, Smitty, LaFell, Ginn & Willams

I am sure it will look like it has

If only that made sense...
Nice try though... You'll get it eventually.
