It seems many here think that changing OCs will go a long way to fix our problems and lots of names have been tossed out. But like most threads lately the responses are emotional and not well thought out. For example if you change an OC assuming many OCs will want to come here with this trainwreck, do you change philosophies as well. And do we have the personnel to run that scheme. Would the OC have the ability to change mindsets and approaches to fit the personnel or would they be like Mahzahn who is a one trick pony who would try and fit the personnel to his style instead of the other way around. And would a guy like Gus be good long term for Cam if he runs him 25 times a game like he did in college?
Would we go to a WCO or to a Erhardt Perkins offense. Given the investment in our running backs would we de-emphasize the running game for more of a WCO passing attack or use a spread offense like Kelly. If we go with the spread do we continue with the zone read philosophy that Kelly uses or the air raid offense developed by Hal Mumme almost 30 years ago.
Next do we have the personnel to run that scheme. Will guys like Brandon Williams and Tolbert for example fit into an offense that uses no huddle, has 3 or 4 wideouts and uses the pass to set up the run instead of the other way around, Our offensive line seems to made up of big guys who are brawlers and not guys good in pass defense. And if we suddenly made a change would we be able to find enough guys to replace who we have given that more teams are going to a spread type look and the emphasis on quicker smaller guys who can zone block and they are harder to find. Are our receivers good with YAC necessary in a spread of WCO system. Is Benjamin even good with running after the catch and getting open quickly instead of needing time to get open given he is not quick off the line.
Do we have the Sproles kind of quick back or we stuck with Stewart who looks powerful but slow this year.
Show me that some of you know football and are capable of more than Shula sucks. Besides how long can you bitch every week about the same thing when we get blown out repeatedly.
