It gives them an opportunity to practice over & over exactly what they're going to run, so that the timing is perfect.
So if the WCO was meant to be a pass-oriented offense, we seem to run something a bit different since we clearly like to run first.
Who was the first to combine zone-blocking with the WCO? Shannihan?
How is the Shannihan WCO differ from the Kubiak WCO?
Your first question was addressed in the posts above.
I'll try to get to the other two later.
