    Okay, i ts the off season and we are all bored and hungry for some football. Since we have exhausted the carr topics, lets talk about something a little more fun.

    If you were calling plays and you had confidence in your players-what plays would you call- be specific.

    I would like to see a lot of 3 reciever sets with an option to run. rb could be the 4th reciever.

    come on, you offensive gurus out there. show us what you've got.

    I just want to see TEs catching the ball and receivers that don't drop it. We need to see more of that. I'm sure we will.

    Houston, again.
    I think the quickout to the WR is a sure winner.

    That might be a problem - I don't think they ran that play in OTAs or minicamp. Maybe they are saving that for the closed training camp sessions. :)

    I like the bootleg play Coslet ran where the OL bootlegs on a 2 te and the primary TE fall down acting like he muffed but in all reality he is really running a combination fade route for a game winning TD..I didn't never really like Coslet because he knew nothing about talent but that play worked everytime we ran it.....I didn't really have film so so i'm not quite sure how the TE did it but from my understanding he just fell down and the defense lost him..Next time you seen him he was in the endzone all alone...

    I would like to see Moulds underneath on a Smash route quite a bit. If one of our speedy guys can go over the top, we can put AJ on the other side and they will be forced to either leave man to man on AJ or they won't have the personnel to cover the Smash.

    The ones that would result in a touchdown on every play, obviously :tease:

    I'd definately like to see some effective play action this year and go deep to AJ and Moulds and maybe even Mathis if he can get his act together.

    WELL.... Based on the assumption the O-Line is good (not even great) we have a LOT of possibilities. With Moulds and AJ strecthing the filed, the DB's can't cheat up, the LB's have to respect the pass catching TE and RB coming out of the backfield, which all of course reduces mismatches on the line (that's right you other guys, you can't rush 9 - 10 guys every play this year) and open's up running possibilities. I guess what I am trying to say here is we have a real shot at having a very balanced attack this year.

    So, specifically, I would mix up pass and run plays on first down (no more 2 runs, sack and out). And yeah, I also think play action is going to work very well for us this year.

    Watch out wabbits... we are coming for ya! :hunter:

    No the best offensive strategy ever,
    1st and 10, max protect HB Dive between the center and the guard.
    2nd and 8, 2WR, 1TE, 1FB, 1HB set, run a HB Dive between the center and the guard.
    3rd and 6, Quick out to WR, or a 2 step-sack, or another max protect HB Dive between the center and the guard... see with this philosophy the opposing defense doesn't know what we're going to do on 3rd down! :confused:

    I am not sure. I only know right now that handing off three times and going over left tackle is not successful. :wacko: :wacko:

    Chad Stanley should have gone to the Pro Bowl last year.

    Now that we have a receiver corps, a tight end and a fleet of running backs, there are too many options.
