George Seifert is spinning in his grave! (But he probably sucked too)
It's no better or worse than newer (to the NFL) concepts like the pistol formation, which is just a variation of the old wing-t and is older than wco concepts. It's not that the formations or routes that are outdated and easy to plan for; it's the way it's administrated....at least to me. It's a 1st down offense. Instead of looking to score the team looks to stay in a reasonable down and distance. It's a great offense vs the little sisters of the poor who can't stop the run and then get sucked in by the play action pass. It churns numbers between the 20's, but it isn't a quick strike offense and teams just compact down don't worry so much about the back end where there is little to no credible threat. Hell, opposing db's have as many TD's as Andre friggin' Johnson has in his last 36 ball games.
