The Real West Coast (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/inside_game/dr_z/news/1999/10/28/inside_football/)

What intrigued me the most, was the talk about St Louis' zone blocking running game.

Hahaha...I stopped reading when I heard Martz was involved. I think we all know what the west coast offense is. People don't think of vertical passing schemes when they think of west coast offense.

talks about the difference between Denver and the 49ers. While Gore certainly got a boost last year, you cannot really say Smith was busting out the Norv Turner vertical game.
