Raye's Offense

So do we know what Rayes offense will look like?  Well, if it is true that it closely resembles Turner's offense, which in turn is based on the Coryell offense, then it may have some consequences at QB position.

Notice the strange paradoxical continuity; We get back to the Turner style and at the same time keep a bit of last years philosophy via Martz?!

Also Notice:

The Coryell offense has the following characteristics:

  • It is a "stretch-the-field vertically" offense, predicated on the complementary effects of throwing deep and running the football
  • The receivers often run intermediate-to-long routes
  • The QB takes more 5- and 7-step drops
  • It emphasizes maximum pass protection, to protect the QB until the receivers get open downfield
  • It is committed to the power running game. The running game opens up opportunities for big downfield completions, and vice versa. Mike Martz, in an interview with Dr. Z of CNN/SI said:
    That's another thing that's critical to the system. Power running. You've got to be able to run the ball when you go to a three-wide receiver set, and you've got to run with power. By that I mean behind zone blocking, which is a big departure from the San Francisco system. Theirs was man-blocking, with a lot of cut-blocks and misdirection. Ours is straight power. Not many people realize this, but if we hadn't have gotten Marshall we were prepared to go with another excellent zone-blocking runner, Robert Holcombe. It takes a certain type, a guy who can run with power, who's good at picking his way through. Stephen Davis is doing that in Washington now, and that's a big reason why their offense is so good...The good thing about zone-block running is that you can keep pounding away. You don't have the negative yardage plays.

What might this mean for our QB situation?
