Earlier in the season, it appeared that we were really making a conscious effort to run out of what would generally appear to be passing formations. If you take a look at our plan of attack against TCU, we ran right up the middle a great deal, but many of those runs up the middle were from formations where we had three or four wide outs and were spread out. This created quite a few big runs up the middle as the the linebackers and safeties were worried about the receivers and tight ends. Now, I am not suggesting that we simply give up running from power formations all together, but I do think that mixing up the formations we run from is a good idea. Teams have to respect Mett's arm and our wide receivers, so if we were to get about 40-50% of our run plays in passing formations, it would really help to create an imbalance in the other team. The second thing I see is an almost complete lack of utilization of the tight end in the passing game. I have lost count of the number of times I have seen our team in recent years simply ignore a wide open tight end and force a ball into double coverage to a wide out. I thought that might really change this year since we are running an NFL offense, and NFL offenses function with the tight end being a huge part of the passing game. We refuse to do this. It has been brought up before, and Les has acknowledged it before, but nothing seems to change. Go look at the stats for TE catches on NFL teams where Cameron has been the OC. Now again, I am not suggesting that we make the tight end the dominant focus of our passing attack. However, what we seem to do when our Wide outs are covered is check down right away to the RB or FB. The TE hardly gets a look in our offense. If we start burning some defenses over the middle to the TE, they will have to adjust in terms of what WR's they are going to double cover, and consider dropping LB's back in coverage which, if we take my advise above and run from passing formations like we did earlier in the year, will also open up those running lanes. There has been quite a bit of talk here recently about what is wrong with the D, and deservedly so. However, there are also some things, clear things, we could do to really improve our offense. I don't see any reason not to do them. Thoughts?
