    I have a strange feeling TAM is going to lay the wood on Bama if McCarron doesn't play well.

    And now the worn down defense thing Oregon does comes into effect.

    Wow, Eagles must be loving the Chip Kelly hire. We'll give D coordinators a couple of seasons to dissect what he's doing and see if they can stop it, but right now this is about as splashy of a coaching debut as I can remember.

    Me too, man. There's been a shift in the game's philosophy over the past several years, but this week may provide it with a major dose of validation. I would love to Saban get exposed and humiliated on national T.V.

    Serious about the Gators running a slow offense? Yes, I was.

    Riley Cooper is still a great blocking WR.

    How many copycat zone read offenses are we gonna start seeing after hearing for years that it won't work in the NFL?

    I would say not many. A lot of teams can't run it with the personnel they have right now -- Broncos, Pats, etc.

    The 49ers, however, are perfectly positioned to incorporate more of it into their offense if they so desire. Kaepernick is fast as hell. And the Redskins are trying to but they apparently haven't implemented it quite as well. :)

    Jordan Reed, best offensive player of the Boom era.

    I think you will see some of the more terrible teams start to run it. Just like in HS and college, it can be kind of an equalizer for lesser talented teams if executes right.

    I don't think any NFL team plays offense like we do. We are far slower and a lot less vertical.

    Actually I take that back. Our offense resembles the 2012 Jets. Right down to the random ill timed wildcat plays

    The Broncos and Pats can't use the option, but they play very fast.

    The key is the tempo. Many strategies can work as long as you have the right personnel, but tempo is key. Elite offenses crave high tempo

    Brady and Peyton put tons of pressure on defenses, very similar to Kelly in that respect. Ultimately that's the key.

    The Jags and the Bucs. The bucs kept running Martin up the middle for an average of 2.5 yds per carry.

    Exactly, it's about tempo and also keeping a defense on their heels. Attacking them and not relenting.

    Our offense does not look like it wants to attack anyone/anything. It has no tempo, no identity. We are very predictable which puts no pressure on the defense.
