What Id like to see from Gase/offense going forward

Speaking purely about the offense with Darnold...

1. More 2 RB/heavy TE sets, especially when Herndon is back. We have very flexible players are RB/TE so this should be a no brainer. It helps protect the QB and keeps the offense guessing. Get to the line in 21/22, have Darnold decide weather to run or pass depending on look- simple.

2. More play action, especially from these heavy sets. Keep the defense honest, help the OL, give Sam more time to develop plays down field. 

3. Much more up tempo/no huddle pace. This is when Sam and the offense is at its best. We should play offense like a fast break in basketball and let 14 be the PG. we need to dictate pace to the D instead of being reactive.

4. More designed roll outs/movement plays with Darnold. Again it take the burden away from out OL protection and maximizes Darnolds biggest strength- accuracy on the run.

Adam Gase, as a HC, has been forced to run his offense with backup QBs for an absurdly high percentage of games.  He knows how to win a few like this.

I believe he intended to run a fast tempo offense with Darnold.  Out the window.

But he ran the slowest offense in the NFL last season in Miami with backup QBs.  I expect the same with Trevor Siemian.  He is going to slow the game down, and try to generate some chunk YAC plays.   Maybe a trick play or two. 

Long drives are typically not sustainable with backup QBs.  Neither is a "fast"  offense conducive to winning games that puts your defense back on the field in 30 seconds with a 3 and out.

Just run the ball. Bell was beating g heavy box looks all day last Sunday. 

As far as rolling Sam out, you need the right look from the D. If they are in zone, the probably won't  work as well. You want the WR manned up in a one on one match up where he can beat the defender, you don't  want to throw into double or triple coverage.

Can't play action from shotgun. We were constantly in shotgun.

So do you agree or disagree with JD making moves if he can say to bring in a young proven NFL caliber CB if it took away draft picks. 

I would prefer trading players, stock piling picks and losing games.

Let Douglas build through the draft with as many picks as possible.

CB is only 1 hole that needs to be filled, trading multiple picks for 1 player would be stupid, we need depth!

Considering the situation where you have a boat load of money invested in a mediocre at best CB and nobody at the opposite CB position i say trade away fill a glaring need with a young proven NFL CB....not some "what if" draft pick.

We have always drafted poorly. Get young proven players.

Joe Douglas has drafted quite well, his rosters were loaded.

Easy to pound the table for guys and go out on a limb when your boss is the one to make the final decision. Let’s see if JD goes full-Macc conservative mode now that it’s on him.
