We have enough athletes at RB and WR. What we lacked offensively was the creation of space. When you watch the Air Raid, it’s unbelievable how wide open the WRs and RB are.
Do I want the air raid? No. But I don’t want the Hamden offense where every route takes 5 seconds to develop and there’s no outlet.
I think we have enough talent at QB. Just need more creativity on offense.
Football games are won by running the ball and playing defense. It’s that simple.
However, I agree that Bush’s inability to find mismatches and create openness for our WRs was a MAMMOTH problem. Occasionally you have to throw the ball, and Bush just seemed unable to put our WRs and QB in a position to succeed.
Air Raid? As you say, NO. But having a creative passing game (that rests on a foundation of solid running) is not too much to ask for $800k per year.
