Jimmy said he wants the offense “to live in 11 personnel” which means 1 RB, 1TE, and 3 WR’s. Some Double TE formations (12 personnel) will likely still be in the mix but not used the majority of snaps. There’s no reason our offense can’t be explosive and score a lot of points. Talented O-line. Newton, McGrew, Otton, Nacua, and Bynum as their core skill position guys with a lot of talented guys competing to get in the mix. It’s going to be a tough, physical offense at every position. No more soft receivers. Considering we’ll have a new starting QB I think mid-30’s in points per game is a realistic goal. The scoring defense will easily average less than 20 points per game and could average less than 15.
Jack Yary said that he was told they were going to live out of 11 and 12 personnel. Given that they are so deadset on getting a third TE for this class, I would say 12 personnel will continue to be the most commonly used set in our offense going forward.
Absolutely not happening. Could there be two TE’s on the field the majority of the time? Sure, if you include the snaps when one is split out in the slot as a receiver making it 11 personnel again. 12 personnel was not most commonly used under Petersen/Bush. It was 11 because Hunter Bryant was usually split out as a slot WR.
Unless it’s Redman, I don’t see any of our te’s currently on roster that will split out like Hunter. None of them are athletic or fast enough to do that on a consistent basis.
Agree. We will have an actual receiver playing in the slot way more often now without Hunter.
