It will all come down to the OL and Sanchez. If we can run the ball, which I think we are going to do a lot of, then that will make everything easier. Sounds obvious, but that is what needs to happen. If the players execute, Sparano will look like a savior, if they don't, we will be cursing him just like we did Schotty.
I think his biggest contribution to the offense will be his attitude and work ethic, and that might be enough to get us going in the right direction again. But in terms of play calling and design, I don't think he will be anything to write home about. I think their goal is to have a boring offense that is efficient and can execute.
We all want that 1998 offense - Jap plays and all. ALL OF IT.
that's why we think SparanO will fit the bill here in '12.
