Dalton says offense is “all new”
#1
“This is a complete change,” Dalton said, via ESPN.com. “What we were doing before was basically Jay [Gruden’s] offense with the adaptation of Hue [Jackson], he put his stuff on it, then [Ken Zampese] took over and he did his thing. Now we’re starting from square one. This is all new.”

So last year's offense was just the '15 offense after Zampese "did his thing" to it?

This makes me feel better. With all the talent the Bengals have, they should be scoring sixty points per game.

Yes. Lazor said in an interview after the season like it was calling plays from 3 different books with different chapters randomly sewn together. None if it went together or was congruent, so he said he wanted to just install an entirely new.offense.and blow the old Frankenstein one up.

Good.

Good. It was becoming pretty obvious that there was no consistent philosophy behind the play designs and selection - while an individual play might look good as a whole they did not compliment each other.

If they fix the O-line.

Bad part is may take time to get it working. But good part is opposing teams will have to throw out their old books on Bengals offense.

I'm hoping Van Pelt improves Dalton's footwork in the pocket. Rodgers has impeccable footwork. If he can improve Dalton's footwork even a little bit that'd be huge. Combine that with a better offensive line and better play calling and we're looking a lot better.

I love it because the play calling had become a bit stale and it seemed like we were just doing the same thing over-and-over and it was very blah.

I also love this:

Quote:Wide receiver A.J. Green said the work presents “a challenge” and it’s one the Bengals need to meet if they are going to improve on last year’s shabby offensive showing.


because we need to challenge our guys and change things up a bit to bring some fire into what we're doing. Guys aren't going to be excited if it's the same thing that hasn't been bringing us much success the past two seasons (or even the fire prior) because they know that it has become bland.

This is good news. Last year felt like a continuous loop of Groundhog Day.

If Frank Pollack can teach the offensive line how to create and sustain a pocket in the first place....

If anything on this team needed to be completely blown up and rebuilt from the ground up, it was the offensive playbook. Good news......

Nah man.....'member how defenders over the last few seasons said they knew what we running before we did?  This will at least remove the predictability of the offense.

Either:

1. They all lie (highschool antics; everyone used to say that)
2. They study the team so much via tape and all that jazz, that they know a good portion of what they can expect.

The latter has to do with good preparation on the opponent's part, not because our playbook is, "predictable."

Not saying I'm not all for this (I am, oh GOD I am lol), but I just don't take opponent's words for it, in situations like this.

I get all that....but it sure seemed like the coverage was all over our routes a great deal of the time.  Now, that could be due to poor play by our WRs, but I recall some jumped routes, and very tight coverage.  Good homework + predictable (i.e. not many changes) offense = defenses ahving a greater understanding of your tendencies.....IMO.

Hopefully they don't go back to the ultra predictable run run pass philosophy of the Brat era.. I don't think they do, but only time will tell.
