Will the Offense Look Any Different?
Now that Billick is in charge of the playcalling for the first time since the late 90s, here's a question -- will the offense actually look any different? It seems like a lot of us, maybe most of us, don't think so. When Fassel was let go, I read a lot of "It's still Billick's offense, it won't be any different."
Well, I don't pretend to know, but I'm hopeful that the offense will look a little different, at least in terms of the playcalling. If the rumors about Fassel not putting in a lot of hours are true, then I think that Billick will have spent a lot more time in specific game-planning than Fassel did. And he's had two weeks to do it, thanks to the bye. So hopefully the offense might be more likely to attack the Saints' defense weaknesses than under Fassel.
I think it will be interesting to watch.
