J-Brown started this with an offensive philosophy thread.

 

There is no secret at all that ND needs to pass the ball better.

 

There is also no secret that the offensive line goes from a strength to a question mark.

 

So whats Tommy got to work with?

 

A QB with a quick release

 

- A dynamic Tight end

-Explosive running backs

- Unproven/probably Talented wide receivers.

 

 

What does that beg for?

 

The RPO

 

As much as it was sworn off last year we need whoever the QB is to help the line by not holding the ball, 2-3 seconds or less

 

 

Wide receiver screens, RB screens

 

Spread out wide, throw it quick. Pass to run later. Deep shots off pump fakes

 

I don't expect to look alot like 20 on offense, in fact I would not be shocked if the RB's have as many receiving touchdowns as rushing TD's

 

Am I crazy?

whys that?

 

It feels so gimmicky. Potential for big losses as well as big gains. When ND ran it it looked like they were always running in mud. So slow, very methodical. Never seemed to produce much IMO. Against faster defenses, they seem to eat it up. ND’s online always looked confused, the running back needs to be a first round pick and you need a qb that can run it to perfection. Again just my thoughts. The one team that has run it the best has been Wake Forest and they get clobbered by good teams.

Thats what I thought too.

 

I need offense(my powerplant(offensive line) is untested

 

this might be a year they break out the gimmicks(more then 1 QB playing snaps, RPO)

 

 

I'm just predicting an open-book year on offense. Kinda refreshing, the Book book was already written.

Did you not see Bama absolutely kill teams with a simple RPO?

Did you not read my post? Bama has a first round running back, receiver, o-line, and perhaps a quarterback. None of what ND or Wake has. It’s gimmicky and run to get miss matches of faster skill guys on linebackers and such. Good defenses shred this type of offense when it matters. And before you try and mention tOSU, go look at their message boards. You’ll see them complaining about how bad their secondary was all year. Ohio states secondary was bad. Besides that, Smith did that against EVERYONE. He didn’t need gimmicks or RPO’s to get open.

Either way, ND does not have that type of talent for a bunch of mismatches and speedy skill set guys to burn secondary’s. It would be terrible to do exactly what Faith has mentioned BK has done in the past. That is to change their offense yet again in the offseason. It’s no wonder we score close to 3 points against good teams in the playoffs every year. NO IDENTITY!
