Maybe someone could explain player by player. 5 positions, a good number of roster spots, I know it's not easy to explain. But again, school me on this topic.
    Since no one has answered you yet, I will try my best to. Smoove played as a lineman, so he is also a good guy to talk to, and there are plenty of guys here who either played (Wicked, GirlsKickButt) and have a good idea or who didn't play, but still understand the nuances.

    In a zone blocking scheme, the Offensive lineman is not focused on blocking a person. He's focused on blocking a spot, or zone. It utilizes linemen with more speed and agility to get to those zones quickly and open up the running lane. Guys who understand their zone responsibility. Kubiak and the Shanahans utilize a lot of stretch zone schemes, which are stretch runs to the edge, with the intent of creating a one cut lane for the back, and cutback options if the defense is undisciplined.

    In an inside trap scheme, the offensive lineman is focused on blocking a person. However, it's not like a 'hat on a hat' man blocking scheme where they go straight up. There is a lot of pulling the Guards and Tackles crashing in. However, it's all in more confined spaces. This requires bigger more powerful linemen with a good quick burst to use those angles to knock defensive linemen off of their spot. The players they have now aren't all the 'best' fit for an inside trap scheme, but they fit that far more than zone. The two linemen they drafted are also more suited for man blocking. Eluemenor is tailor made for it from a physical standpoint, but is very raw. Siragusa can do it, but I think that until he really improves his lower body strength and bend, he may be more suited for blocking straight up rather than inside trap.

    If you think back to the screens that Marty used in Philadelphia, they were known as the best screen team in the league. They used an array of screens where you couldn't predict the intended direction, because they were based off of zone concepts. Brian Westbrook would have three linemen in front of him, already with a plan in place for a lane to create, but the defense didn't know. It would look like the screen was going outside and suddenly McNabb would throw Westbrook inside and the blocks would then set up. Compared to a man scheme where they just took whoever showed up in front of them. Marty's schemes were very unpredictable and effective, because they had such great athletic linemen and the scheme came from Andy. It had been there for years and they drafted players to fit that scheme.

    This is a phenomenal idea.
    Thanks, Jim. Football is a minor issue when you're driving 90 MPH to get to the ER.
    Not much really matters, and the rest doesn't matter at all.

    I agree. Even though a offensive coordinator position is alot less stressful than a head coach position it may still be risky for Gary Kubiak to be a offensive coordinator again. I defintiely would like him as quarterback coach/pass game specialist. He could help Marty M on how to use two tight end sets better and etc.

    Gary Kubiak would laugh in your face someone told him he would be "helping" MM. LOL

    Kubiak is far superior coaching talent compared to MM

    That is like comparing Harbaugh to Bellicheck. I just doesn't make sense

    Lamar Jackson and Kubiak would be insane with Alex Collins in a zone stretch scheme.. 30 points a game

    I'd make it as attractive as possible for Kubiak to work for the team in some capacity. How about Senior Advisor to the HC with full authority for the offense. He can hire the OC and entire offensive coaching staff. We'll have him to oversee and implement his philosophy with a staff from his own coaching tree. He can work with the QBs (or any other position group) as he wants. He wouldn't even have to travel if he or his wife didn't want him to.

    Makes alot of sense if Gary Kubiak is really serious about his health. The guy already showed signs of being humble base off the fact that he's still apart of The Broncos staff but at much smaller role. My statement in general was being more considerate of Kubiak health. I wouldn't want him to be The Ravens offensive coordinator if it put his health in jeopardy and I would love him more in smaller role like at quarterback coach or maybe at head of offense type position.

    I had a TIA back in October 2014. No damage, but one minute I was sitting at work at the computer and apparently 2 hours had passed and I'm the lobby and my wife was there to pick me up. Scary. Uncontrolled high blood pressure in my instance but brain MRI showed no damage. TIA's at best in my case are warning signs. Since been on BP meds and all is well!
