We ran a lot of inside/power zone...with Gibbs on board I expect to see a lot more off tackle/outside zone...

While we still are going to technically be running zone blocking, the steps and angles that linemen take are going to drastically change...The timing is going to change...The way we block will change...The only thing that will stay the same is the "zone concept" which is basically letting defenders dictate who blocks them and how they are blocked...
I don't think it's necessarily because of Gibbs that we will run more outside zone plays.

We'll do it because we have RBs that can get to the corner faster than we did last year. And also because we have more O-linemen who can get o the next level.

Look at the Broncos in 05 when they have the big guys Anderson and Dayne (plus Tatum Bell), they only ran to the edge 15% of the time.

We ran 19% last year, the Broncos 29% with the addition of Selvin Young.
