Remember back in 95 when we went 5 wide and the offense started clicking out of nowhere and we ended up in the SuperBowl?

Can we give that a try?

What if we just gave up on running the ball at all.

And we line up Ward, Tonio, Nate, Miller, and Moore and (god forbid) we spread em out across the width of the field instead of bunching them.

And we let Ben go no huddle and let er rip.....

Let's do it.

And lets try Dixon in the slash role.

I bet he could be a great WR in situations.

Lets get him the ball in space and let the cat run......

That bunch formation is usually a disaster against the Ravens. By using that formation we actually encourage them to zone blitz us. This line is terrible at picking up the zone blitz (which is pathetic since we are zone blitzing team ourselves).

I would swap out moore, or miller for Sweed.

Those three could be interchangeable depending on play type.

I liked the 5 wide then, and wish we could do it now.

But not possible with a junior high offensive line. That line in 95 was one of the best.
