THE BARON Posted July 23, 2020 Share Posted July 23, 2020 I came across this while reading more about the nuts and bolts of Gase's offensive nomenclature. Anyone who has been reading my posts will probably think I wrote this article... https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/ny-sam-darnold-adam-gase-jets-offense-20200428-rudgvs2qofdcncdnio5et76jau-story.html "Gase can’t afford to go down the same path as last season when he tried to force a Peyton Manning-style offense on Darnold. The Broncos might have been an offensive juggernaut with Manning, but that blueprint doesn’t work for a second-year quarterback with an entirely different set of strengths and weaknesses than one of the best signal callers in the history of the universe." "Darnold’s future greatness lies in his ability to make plays off script, throwing from unconventional angles on the run. That should be cultivated, not stifled." THE BARON COMMENTS: And this would call for more designed pocket shifts and misdirection. Static pockets are for QB's like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. NOT DARNOLD. Line shifts and counter gap running would also take advantage of Bell's running style. And I will say this again. Not all of this has to be done with man blocking scheme up front, but this sort of offense with a lot of line motion goes hand in hand with fast, athletic offensive lineman that *can* play well in a man blocking scheme. Either way, this will work out. Either Gase gets his head out of his ass and the offense works, or he doesn't in which case he'll wont be around in 2021. I just *HOPE* the right thing happens before a very talented QB gets sucked up the spout 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
