What exactly is the point of running a conservative offense?!?

98 posts in this topic

I said this in another thread.  If this is based on a few offseason comments and the first week of practice, then it is not accurate.  Here is why:

 

1. The comments over the spring were that the Panthers would run the ball more effectively.  That could mean "more often", but it does not mean that we will be conservative.  Conservative is running the ball on 3rd and 9 or dumping to the backs on pass plays.

 

2. The first week or so of camp is dedicated to building from the foundation.  The run game is usually the foundation.   Play action passes evolve from running plays--not the other way around.

I think too many people are confusing an allegedly more "conventional" offense, with a "Conservative" one. 

 

Big difference!

 

 

This^^^^

 

Also....a balanced offense is not the same thing as a "conservative" one

Spot on.

 

A good running game will be a huge help at keeping the pressure out of Cam's face.

I think we are going to see a smarter offense, not particularly a conservative one.

While its not the dominate focus it once was, I think establishing a running game still matters.

Because we don't want to be Atlanta or Indiannapolis i.e. Can't/won't run the ball, out-shoot sub .500 teams and go out in round one in the playoffs. It wears defenses out.

Better question is, how can you argue for a more elaborate offense after watching the past two seasons?

Indeed. Look at what teams led in rushing last year and who made/succeeded in the playoffs.

run sets up the pass.

 

pass sets up the run.

 

you need both...and a lot of it.

 

and the aim of both HAS to be getting in the end zone, not controlling the clock.

 

score early and often because you can and should never trust that your D is going to hold off the other teams offense for long. you have to make it easy for them and easier for the win by scoring.
