But I am just not sure where Edwards wants to take the offense.
As for the training, everything is going to be the first day of school with a new OC anyway. Itís going to be all new sets, terminology, assignments, reads. So starting with a clean slate, Hill and Edwards can build anything Edwards wants. I just hope that he does not try to turn a bevy of speed receivers and a young, small line into a power offense.
The feel of a New England offense would work nicely with this group of skill players if the line jells. But the actual Patriot offense is a highly complex system that probably could not be mastered at the college level. From what I understand of it, there are reads for practically every position, and after 20 years, Brady knows how every players should react. The Pats suffered this year because it lost a couple key skill players and the offense fell apart. You could see the frustration in Bradyís eyes having to work with new receivers and not having Rob Gronkowski as his safety valve.
I have nothing to base it on, but I envision the offense using something closer to the Pistol Rick Neuheisel used to run with a true fullback and different combinations of TEs and receivers. You can run RPOs, play action passes, gap or zone blocking from the same look. But that is just my guess.
