Agreed. I wish BF would spend a lot of time watching tape of other similar offenses that have more creative minds implementing it. BF aint that it seems. The offense can work, but you have to be a bit more creative within the scheme. Even Wisconsin's jet sweep is a nice wrinkle that we do not use enough within the confines of a power I running attack. We also need more screens and draws.
We have debated this before, but running a traditional pro style offense in some ways could turn into an advantage, much like Georgia Tech running the triple option. Defenses are not used to it and it is hard to prepare for on a week's notice. But, it has to be operated at a high level to squeeze out that advantage.
The hawks have had a lot of really good pass catching running backs under Kirk. The running backs play the running back because they are very good runners in the open field. I think Brian needs to use them more. When Brian got TGoodson downfield on a linebacker a lot of good things happen, same with Wadley, and others.
Unfortunately, Brian doesnt seem to stitch plays together well when he has something working to make the defense counter to that but then for Brian to have a great counter to their counter. You know what I mean. Some times it seems our offense is ran by a random play generator computer program. Every once in awhile there seems to be some coherence like the second half of last years Penn State game mixing in plays
