We have an OC who doesn't do anything creative. But on the bright side, at least we no longer have a defensive coordinator (Wade) who counters a quick RB lined up as a WR with a slow LB.
Putting your players in a position to succeed.
Perhaps if Murray could stay healthy and practice every week then they could do more with him.
A lot of teams split either a linebacker or safety out to cover a running back lined up out wide. It depends on who else is the defense has to account for in the formation. You can't put a DB on every body unless you sub out a LB or two. You do that and then the offense just shifts into a running formation to attack the smaller DBs.
