Why does it have to be the focus of our offense?
I've always felt it to be somewhat gimmicky/bush league/juvenile and whenever Holtz did it with Pinkins and Jenkins...I *hated* it.
Spurrier brought it on with Garcia and now Connor and although it works better with his scheme than it did with Holtz, I still think it hurts you much more than it helps.
Yeah, you provide some confusion at times...but I think it affects the rest of Connor's game and why he feels the need to run more than he should...and obviously, they take a serious beating over the course of a game and season.
I don't see elite teams doing this. They have a gameplan that is more traditional and high powered.
..and features quick strikes with spreading the ball out, implementing a run game that comes AT you with off tackle, sweeps, inside gives, etc. I'd rather the QB take a look at 3 options and then ultimately take a sack rather than Connor's need to target his primary and then want to bolt immediately for who knows what (fumble, 1 yard gain, sack, injury, etc). We have playmakers at WR, TE and RB for a reason. Every now and then, as an element of surprise...you will see the zone read from the elite teams. Not the focus of their gameplan like ours.
Am I the only one who is long tired of it?
*It's especially frustrating when it is SO much the focus of our offense, we run it from the goal line and get stuffed (Vandy game).
