Logan on Logan's offense
Eagle Insider poster TWballgame found this great link by Steve Logan on his offense.
Now, nothing Logan writes is revolutionary. It is the type of offensive philosophy that goes back to Don Coryell and I know that many of these same principles were part of the TOB/Bible scheme. But here are some things that are very refreshing:
1. “throw first, then run”
2. Use of words like “attack” and “aggressive”
3. His third and long package calls for deep routes with cuts and comebacks. He even mentions the tradeoff of losing the underneath routes. I think one of the most frustrating things about Bible was the short crossing route on third and long. It is such a low percentage play and put the burden on the WR to run for the first down.
4. His points on coaching QBs at the end. I am glad he realizes that you have to treat a veteran different from a rookie. How many times did Paul Peterson have to plead to open the offense? How come Matt Ryan was not allowed to audible at the line this year? He also clarifies the critical mistakes a QB can make: sacks and not throwing the ball away. Quinton Porter, despite five years with Bible, never let that sink in.
I will post more on Logan’s actual results at ECU in the coming days and weeks, but this is a nice introduction to what we will see on the field.
