Yep. In the past, our offense was so generically predictable. With the new offensive schemes that Arians and Tomlin are cooking up, i.e. running the ball on 3rd down - we are going to keep opposing D's off balance not knowing what to expect. Even though we were playing the Browns this past Sunday, the O was very exciting once they got their engines revved up.
