I think that Ben to Brown in this style of offense would be really effective. I think the pieces are there on the offensive line and WR corp, we just need a RB. If we were to draft someone like Marcus Lattimore or Mike Gillislee, then this offensive scheme would be hard to stop with our speedy possession receivers we have.
I like it.
I haven't seen to much of Houston over the last couple of years. But having seen Kubiak's offense from his Denver days I get your point.
One thing I do know about them is their OL is outstanding and cosidered by many to be the best in the league. Having a back like Foster, which we don't have at the moment, would certainly help a lot. At this point in life, this would be a wrinlke I'd actually enjoy getting......
