    New OC, how does the offense change?

    I see the "did Rhoads take a shot at Herman" thread, and it gets me thinking.

    How will the offense change this year? Will we keep seeing really slow developing Zone Reads and Bubble Screens, or will we take some more shots down field and have more N/S run plays?

    I am very interested to see how the offense changes this year...even if it is the same style of play.

    Also, i think this is necessary now that we have GOOD idea of the depth chart. Even though it will be more complete when we figure out if it will be SJ or JB at the helm.

    I want to see more screens! I think Jarvis West can be deadly to other teams if we can execute the screen the right way!

    This is one of the things that I want to avoid.

    If we go 3 and out on our first series of the season I will probably cry.

    Re:New OC, how does the offense change?

    I really, really, really want us to be able to utilize the middle of the field, seems like 95^ of our passes were ether short or to the sideline, and I think that made us easy to defend.

    I hope they can click right from the git-go. Even though that will be really harder than it sounds...

    Re: New OC, how does the offense change?

    with our quicker backs (besides woody) and our fairly large OL i would like to see more quick hit run plays instead of such slow developing ones we run most of the time.

    Re: New OC, how does the offense change?

    Bunch of rays of sunshine in this thread huh.

    I think the offense will be improved simply because the OC is not trying to prove how smart he is. TH would have success with something and then completely abandon it, try and get cute, and go 3 and out.

    I think Messingham will be much more straight forward than that. Hopefully not to the point where we are predictable, but if we can execute any better than last year it will be a welcom improvement.

    Depends on which QB and how much he has gotten better at weak areas. Early SJ seemed to go down field more Where JB ran the zone read better. Having another year to work with coaches I think SJ could improve alot. Would like to see the running game opening up the passing including some long passes.

    Re: New OC, how does the offense change?

    I speculate that the type of plays that we see won't change as much as the mix of plays. I'm guessing the balance will be slightly more run oriented which if successful will create more opportunities in the vertical passing game.

    Re: New OC, how does the offense change?

    I expect the read option to continue to be a big part of our offense, but I also expect the passing game to open up more. Hopefully we are done with bubble screens. I hate that play with a passion.

    Re: New OC, how does the offense change?

    I think that the offense will change simply because of a lack of injuries to the OL (keeping my fingers crossed), and the QB's being more familiar with the offense, due to another year of experience. I don't know how much a "new OC" has to do with either of those, though.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)
