Default Offense not as good as we think it is going to be?

Now I'll admit, when I first heard about this new offense I was excited. To me it sounded like we were going to have a more balanced attack where we were going to pass more. Also, more players like Ward and Holmes were going to get more opportunities to shine.

However, as I'm reading more articles and watching the preseason game I'm wondering if this offense is going to be as good as we think it's going to be. I mean the oline is still a big mystery, Ben while healthy won't be able to shine if the oline doesn't block for him, and Parker just got off of a injury. Add to the fact that I think Arians might be doing too much with the offense. I like that we are going to pass more but I'm still skeptical on whether or not I like Ben with that much control. I know Ben is a good QB, but with the 23 INT's last year, I'm wondering whether or not he can come back and play up to his level.

I don't know, to me it just seems like this offense could be a big let down and it could cost us big time (as in a playoff birth).

Thoughts?

everything will be fine with the offense... last year we all know that ben was rushed back too soon and that was the reason for the 23 INTs.

faith my young jedi ...lol

Reading into pre season and jumping the gun on well this might not be is good is the wrong way to look at it. Many times ,, well 1000's of games from the first pre season game to now has had offense after offense look not so good to bad but when season starts thats when you start to watch and see and then by mid season you get a ruff ideal if it will work are not.

And when you install a new offense it might take more then just 1 year to get it worked in and running smoothly. You cannot give up on it after a few pre season games. Make a rush to judge will only have you guessing until the season starts.

Sit back relax, let the new coaches do there job..

And the Pats are 0-2. My point? It's only preseason. Relax, folks.

i must agree that this is only preseason. lets wait and see what happens when the season starts. willie was sooo good last year (i just watched a recap of his performance last year) and that can change everything. keep a defense reeling from a tough running game, and then sneek a 50 yard pass to holmes on 2nd down.... the sky is the limit if everyone stays healthy.

that said, expect some adjustment, lots of new coaching staff and plays will do that.

If you go by preseson offenses, Green Bay whacking Seattle 48-13 last weekend makes the Packers the prohibitive favorites in the NFC.

If you believe that there are some finance companies that have some unbelievable buys on subprime mortgages that they would like to sell to you.

Getting out of preseson with no major injuries is about all you can ask for.

Default Re: Offense not as good as we think it is going to be?

if nobody else is going to say it, then i will... i am worried about the offense. the oline couldnt pass block for shit last year and heading into this season, it doesnt look any better. no hartings, RT is still undecided, center isnt decided yet, and faneca isnt happy... i dont care about preseason performance, nothing we did in the offseason would lead me to believe this oline will be a stellar group, or at least keep ben healthy for an entire season. i hope im wrong. but i will wait and see.

Thats another one of my worries I forgot and it is trying to get used to a new system. Every offensive player in the past has been so used to the run first system that it might take them a while to hit all cylanders.

At the same time we don't need a great offense to win games, if we limit turnovers this year (which KILLED us last year) we will have a good season because the defense is top 10.
