Brock Osweiler's Offense

3

In the link are several videos about the ASU/UCLA offense. They are relatively short, under 10 mins. Mazzone is great and if you watch the videos you'll see how most of the offense is set up around one play: inside zone. From then on out, it is mostly about "protecting" inside zone and then "protecting" the plays that protect inside zone. If the end crashes down on inside zone, the QB pulls. Mazzone doesn't want a running QB/to get his QB hit, so he'll usually give the QB a WR screen option. Go inside to cover the back, QB throws outside. Go outside and inside and the red sea parts for QB run. Come up to hard to cover WR screens and they slip the blocks and go deep. This is the direction many college offenses are going: go FAST and get the ball snapped before they can get set up, keep the offense extremely simple, spread the field (in this case to run, but in all cases to spread defenders out and be able to read them easier), and make all your plays work together (to "protect" other plays). I thought this might lend some insight as to how a "system" works and what a draft prospect's offense was like.

Saints Keep WR Colston, Another Potential FA off the Table

1

Looks like Marques Colston will stay with the Saints. Drew Brees' number one wideout agreed to a five-year deal worth $40 million. Reports say that $19 million of his contract are guaranteed. I don't think this should surprise anyone, as Colston and Brees have great chemistry and that offense is pretty good. The Saints and Colston are pretty valuable to each other. Now, the Saints are probably turning their attention to retaining OG Carl Nicks, who would be among the best free agents at any position if he hits the market later today. With another free agent wide receiver re-signing with his team, I think it is less and less likely that the Browns get an impact "number one" in free agency. We might add depth or get a veteran who could help us out, but I think it would for a guy who is good in a specialized role at best. I think Heckert is taking a smart approach to free agency, as "big name" players who are available are often not worth what it takes to get them. With that said, I still wouldn’t mind going after DE Mario Williams.

Passing = Winning

42

If you are a "build a great running game and defense" person, you need to read this. "Compared to passing with its nice tight relationship, running's relationship with wins is weak. There may not be a relationship at all, except that there is a conspicuous absence of many teams with very strong running games and very low wins. [...]this suggests that a good running game can save a bad team from notching only 3 or 4 wins, but it's not going to lead a team to the playoffs. Notice how few of the very best running teams exceed 8 wins, while the best passing teams win at least 8 games."

Bill Walsh and Quarterbacking in the West Coast Offense

12

These are videos of Bill Walsh and Joe Montana demonstrating the level of detail involved in the West Coast Offense. Look specifically at the "rhythm throws" by Montana where he throws off of his back foot without a "hitch" step. Those are difficult throws--especially that out to the left. Another thing of note is the quickness with which Montana goes through reads both in this "practice" session and the successful plays in games. At the top of his drop if not before, he will make an instantaneous decision and immediately go to his next read, which is timed to get open after the one hitch it takes to get through a read. The whole time, he's moving to avoid giving defenders a stationary target in the pocket. Sorry BY, but Joe Montana was really good.
