Default It's a passing league now...will it remain so?

Pat Kirwan and several coordinators and GMs are rethinking that. Don't be surprised to see a lot more running this season and a return to a more traditional two back set.

Isn't Seattle pretty much what the Kubiak Texans should have been?

Yes. We were just never able to get it all together at the right time.

Patriots have been run heavy for years. Texans expected to be similar.

I think so but then I'm probably biased .... But if you look at what he was able to do with Schaub , who never could move and didnt have a big arm & an UDFA RB .... How many times did we see his route combinations get #80 wide open , no one within 10 yards of him.

People complain about being predictable , but the fact is that the QB was so limited physically he couldn't execute. The same plays they ran the season before & went to an 11-1 start were the same plays they ran going 1-3 to end the season and 2-14 the next.

He got fired because he couldn't fix his broken QB , or the flawed one who replaced him.

I think the Ravens are a real good fit personnel wise for his offense , pending Ray Rice has something in the tank. Flacco will thrive in that system.

Default Re: It's a passing league now...will it remain so?

under off season coach speak 'we are going to run the ball more or more effectively " is near the top of the list. The money spent this off-season does not suggest that teams are going to emphasize the run (or at least put on one guys shoulder). I mean an ok (non great) WR3like Andre Roberts got more money than any single RB free agent. then again, it really won't hard for much of the league to run more and still keep this a "passing league."

One way to counter the leagues shift towards pass rush specialists is to collect huge linemen and bruiser backs and pounding the smaller nickle packages into submission.
