    Confirmed: New offense similiar to Pats



    I knew I saw this a couple weeks ago and another eye has seen the same. The Ravens are changing the offense now as I presume they have the pieces they've always wanted.

    I see less sacks for Joe and quicker patterns now. We probably will not see this tonight, but it's exciting.

    in the aspect of personnel we could easily have a very similar offense, im just not sure thats in Cams mindset to use it in similar ways. well see, i have my fingers crossed.

    I'm really excited to see Flacco and the 1st string offense tonight. Even if it is only for a series.

    When the unit gets into a 12- personnel set with one running back, two tight ends, two wide receivers it can really present problems for any defense.
    So that's how the patriots have been cheating all these years! The giants just wanted to even up the numbers on that last drive.

    Thats all we can do. Couple this with the Jaw film room with Joe, I think that it's not a question of if, but when. I'm sure the owner is sick of being a bridesmaid to the superbowl as well and Joe emphasized that in that interview.

    Exactly. The bolded subheader in the article that's referenced for the thread title seems to make a little bit of a leap. The less glamorous non-bolded wording of the article actually states, "The analyst saw key offensive weapons that can be as dangerous as the folks in New England." Granted, they may increase the use of Two Tight End sets, but I'm not sure how similar that will make this offense to that of the Pats'. A lot will be in the playcalling, so we'll just have to wait and see.

    Still, it sounds like a potentially positive development.

    LOL,
    I believe "12- personnel set " describes a package.
    1 RB,2 TE,2WR
    An 11 personnel set would have
    1 RB,1 TE, and 3 WR

    So does this mean the long developing Air Coryell offense (that's not a good fit for our OL) with all the 5-7 step drops is being tossed aside? I hope so. I think we've seen this before like against KC in the playoffs a few yrs back.

    no. Cam is Air Coryell i dont think hes adept to change philosophy, if we wanted to do that we would have changed coordinators this year.

    Cam just needs to incorporate and not necessarily change it all. Some of what got us to the AFCCG is that philosophy, but you also see when it sputters (Jacksonville game/San Diego game).

    San Diego runs close to the same offense. They are as inconsistent as they come as far as winning goes and the offense can go hot and cold, but still ranks pretty high. I think this may be a flaw with its current design, as well as player execution issues, but also the conservative nature of the coaches (Harbs too). All combined just makes us frustrated at the inability to get its potential to the max.

    Ditto to trailhiker.

    The personnel groupings are what could look similar to the Pats. The play calling and execution will likely remain different. That doesn't mean there won't be changes. Flacco seems bound and determined to get this offense to change. I just don't think it's going to start closely resembling the Pats offense.

    I agree. The Ravens don't have the Pats o-line or tight ends. The Pats don't have anyone close to Ray Rice. The Pats also love to do creative things with personnel. Can anyone see Dickson going in motion and becoming the RB like Hernandez does? Do the Patriots even have a fullback on their roster? These teams are very different I don't see how they could run similar systems.
