    Holy transfers Batman. I noticed the recent 6 transfers are all on Offense. Champ must have told the team we are switching up the type of players we need to run the new offense. Maybe the transfers didn't feel like they fit that offensive style.

    Here's to hoping we have an offense next year that isn't offensive!!!

    Pretty sure that has nothing to do with it...

    I think it's pretty unlikely it has "nothing" to do with it.

    Could be related to productivity/performance as much as how they fit.

    We didn't lose anybody from the two deep.

    I think the QBs could be about fit, if we're looking for more mobile guys.

    Just seems coincidental they are all on Offense and the rumor is we are moving possibly to a spread of some sort. Can't remember the last time we saw this much attrition within such a short span on 1 side of the ball. I don't believe any of the 6 could play in a spread style offense either.

    You're right. Staver even mentioned the new offense being the major factor for his transfer

    Most of the transfers were buried anyways and would have never contributed. The only ones that matter are Silberman who was a backup depth OL and Kent Taylor, who has produced nothing but had a lot of hype/apparent potential.

    Don't forget, some of these guys (at least Staver) was/were recruited by Pease.

    So Staver said that the new offense was part of the reason he was leaving? I hadn't seen that. If he did say that, it strikes me as odd. Does he really prefer our "old" offense as a QB? You know, they one where the average yards per pass attempt was around 6-7 and we ran the ball 65-70% of plays (when we were fully healthy, no less).

    Also, that would mean the players actually knew who was coming in to coach them. If that was the case, I'm sure Twitter would've leaked something by now. Muschamp's generic comments about "up tempo" wouldn't scare a QB away.

    And I certainly can't imagine an "up tempo", more spread out offense would scare off Kent Taylor. He seems the type of TE built for that vs. Thompso who is more the large body type of TE.

    Gronkowski is a large body type of TE who excels in the Patriots spread no huddle up - tempo offense.

    Based off staver father's comment's champ hinted that staver would fit the offense he is looking to go to. You can interpret that as either he may have stone feet and can't move well or maybe champ just didn't care for his skill level, he was recruited by Pease.... more or less a camp arm.
