No matter what style of offense you run, you have to be proficient at it to be successful. Oregon does a great job with their O. There are many teams that run a fast break O that are not as successful. Likewise, Bama's O is very good consistently. They run more of a TOP O. In order to run a TOP O, you still must take some shots down field and have a balanced attack. IMO, the debate over style vs execution is a valid debate. I believe if we were proficient, had above average O line play, and had balance in our attack, we could be dominant with a TOP offense. I'm not a proponent of the TOP offense, but it can't be dismissed as something that won't work. The problem we have is our execution and balance is not where it needs to be. The obvious debate is... coaching, talent, play calling, etc.. Is our lack of a vertical passing game due to poor O Line protection, or, is our poor O Line protection due to a lack vertical passing game and the opposing D stacking the box? The reality is we can all speculate but we just don't know.
