I think the offense can be much better with just a little bit of work but at some point, the players have to execute. Offensive line play is key. If we get that, there's a real chance for some good things. If we don't, we are doomed. TOs on offense and defense need to basically reverse themselves. We need a pass rush and we need to be able to effectively beat the blitz. This will help keep us out of situational play calling. Sounds simple.
Along with executing it perfectly...you still have to have the players to do it.
Remember we would run the same old plays over and over and just dared people to stop us....they knew what was coming but could not stop us.
It started changing with Switzer vs the eagles with the back to back runs by EZ22 that did not get the first IMO.
Shortly after that the wanted teh offense to change....IMO it was never the idea of the offense getting old, or not being ran to perfection...it was the start of the steady decline of weak drafts in replacing good players over the years.
