We have a stable of average RBs, below average blocking tight ends, and an average O-line......I'm sorry but that does not add up to a 09 Jets-style "ground and pound" team.
I think our best chance to be a good and successful offense is just being balanced and putting all of our skill guys in position to do what they do best...... Sanchez taking a big step and letting him throw down the field a lot more will be key, Using all 3 Rbs with what they do best, and getting creative with Tebow/Spread offense when the situation calls for it......We just need to mix it up and play the hot hand (Not purely Tebow/Sanchez but playmakers as we have a lot of different guys to spread the ball around to)
We have the chance to be a pretty good offense, but my biggest fear is Rex and Sparano playing too conservatively and trying to establish the ground and pound at all costs.....We will not be successful with this strategy IMO
Sanchez isn't ready for that kind of attack. Schotty already tried that last season and it turned out to be disasterous.
You're never as good as you think and it's never as bad as you fear. That's the phrase that comes to mind. The OL woes look bad right now, I'll admit it. But add 1 OL, maybe a RT, and things could easily solidify. The foundation of a great OL is already there. Mangold, a rebound year for Brick, and Moore are the basics for a very good OL.
No, I still think Tanny could add another OL and we could easily go 10-6 and secure a playoff spot as a wildcard.
