How is the Shannihan WCO differ from the Kubiak WCO?
It seems a lot of people credited Alex Gibbs with the ZBS and WCO marriage.
Take this article for example:
But I don't think we can be sure of that.
If you're interested I can provide some links for you to read up on and come up with your own conclusion.
As far as Kubiak offense, I think it's an evolution from the Broncos scheme.
I have several Broncos games from 2007 that I can review.
I had watched 3 so far, but I'd like to review some more to have a better idea.
Basically, it looks to me like: more formations, more motions, more ways for receivers to block, more play-action.
They combine to make a more complex offense.
Obviously, the Redskins are incorporating a bunch of zone reads (Baylor/Art Briles) into their play action pass and run such that they are quite different from us nowadays.
