Thread: Steelers' Base Offense in 2012?

  1. #1

    Steelers' Base Offense in 2012?

    I think it will be a 3 WR base...

    I think that Redman will be the RB in the base...he has shown the ability to block in pass pro when needed and has also shown the ability to catch, though he will never be mistaken for LaDanian Tomlinson..

    I think that the running game will focus on hitting the hole quickly and getting downfield, keeping the offense ahead of the chains...the 3WRs will command coverage and leave fewer defenders in the box...usually, one guy isn't enough to get Redman down, so the defenders will have to cheat a safety down into the box..and that will open thing up even further in the passing game..

    With Pouncey, DeCastro and Colon in the middle, the run game could be deadly with the defenders having to account for the YMC and Heath...successful between the tackles running will be the key to another big year for Wallace and Brown, with Heath, Sanders and Cotchery all benefitting...

    Still an echo on this board I see.

    How about an opinion from someone whom I don't want to put on my ignore list?

    I've been preaching the 3 wide base for years Slap, here and elsewhere.

    You need to read what's written rather than just WHO is writing it.

    You won't let any of us forget who's writing it...that's not the problem...

    "Better yet, I would try Adams at LT where he played last season, if he can handle it I leave him there, leave Gilbert where he was last season, and DeCastro at RG where he played last season also. Leave the OL's where they were last season, put Foster at LG and let this unit grow and blend in together without moving them around"

    And for four of the five spots? That's exactly what they are doing.

    Not bad for a guy who doesn't WORK in the NFL huh?

    Reporter: Does [drafting Adams] change your plans to move Marcus Gilbert to left tackle?

    Sean Kugler: I'm going to have a few beers tonight and think about it.

    Thanks. I said them first.

    I also said that Mike Tomlin would win his first SB inside three years during the first month of his first season.

    To get the thread back on topic, I'll agree with Slap on the 3-wide base offense (and thereby agree with Crash for the second time today), although I don't plan on dislocating my own shoulders from patting myself on the back about it.
