Running that kind of a scheme calls for a lot of quick passes; you don't need a stout O-line to do that. You don't need great receivers either. You need a QB with a quick release that can also make quick decision most of all. Snap, ball gone; whether it's long or short or anything in between.
Look at Keenum, his O-line at UH wasn't much; none of his receivers were drafted; he went against teams that played Luck, RG III, Weeden, Tannerhill, you name it.
They were going so fast, they wore their own defense down, the coaches had to tone it down in the second half of the season.
