Default Re: Why In the World did We Not Use our OFFENSIVE SYSTEM in this Game?

We did not "completely abandon" anything. We've been working the pistol in all year. Probably for this very reason. The only thing that changed in the run game by setting Keenum up in the pistol is that he's already closer to Arian, he doesn't have to run backwards. The action on the line is the same, the action of Arian is the same. Had Arian not got hurt the run game would have been just fine.

Ben Tate hasn't ran well in the last three weeks. About the same time Foster started running well.

No. He wouldn't be starting if Kubiak doesn't "know" that he can play in his system. We're trying to find out if he can handle being a starting QB in this league. Keeping his head, not panicking, not getting scared. He's not going to learn the system in a week.

That's what we did. Moving the QB from under center to the pistol doesn't change a ton for the routes the receivers ran, from the way the OL blocks the run, or pass protect, or how the RB reads the blocks.

What part of "our system" are you thinking changed? Everything else was the same, except where the QB spotted up.
