Default Time to completely re-scheme the offense (Kubiak style?)

After our (McDanials) offense got destroyed by New England last week and with McCoy hopefully on his way to become a head coach, it's time to get the McDanials stink out of our offense and bring in a completely different system.

I think most of us would agree that bringing in the Kubiak offense would be ideal but obviously Kubiak or Dennison won't be an option. But what about their oline coach, John Benton? http://www.houstontexans.com/team/co...f-9f0dc824e854 He's a CSU alum from Durango to boot.

Doesn't Houston run some variant of the west-coast offense? Not sure we need to complicate things right now, nor am I sure Tebow could thrive in a precision passing offense.

I think Tebow would thrive in a zone blocking, run to set up the pass, play action, bootleg offense with some option added in. Kubiak offenses produce great rushing attacks yearly, imagine what that system could do adding a little option in with the Tebow run / threat. The ground game would be very effective and it would immensely open up the passing game, especially with the bootlegs.

Take tebow and west coast offense out of your rhetoric for the next 24 months and your life will become much less complicated. This guy needs shannahan worse than any qb that has played in orange and blue. Hopefully we find him a great qb coach this offseason.

If all we could do this year is find someone to run the same offense as Jake Plummer ran in his 1st or 2nd year w/us, we would be doing fine. Heck, I could see Tebow running those bootlegs, probably better than Plummer.

Who is going to throw in kubiaks offense? Not Tebow, where he is at in his abilities.

Just checking here.

Why do you think the offense we ran against the Patriots had anything to do with McDaniels? It was 100% a Fox/McCoy offense, and had zero to do with McD.

We learned a great deal about our team this year, and the more I look back, the more excited I am at the prospects. All we need is a good, balanced Offensive Coordinator that commits to a balanced run attack (now that we can run), and has a more developed play action/screen/short passing game. Also, I think that getting a true #1 pass catching TE like Coby Fleener would give an amazing boost to this crew.

Just remove a little of the predictability, add a few playmakers, possibly get a true RT (if Ryan Harris isn't healthy) and our offense will be fine.

I would hope that by next year, we start Clady, Franklin, Walton (or vet replacement), Kuper, and Harris.

However, to put it lightly, I am not as enamored with the memory of Mike Shanahan as you are. I remember his failures with Griese, his failures to score in the red zone for years with Griese, Plummer, and Cutler, and his failure to find a way to limit Cutler's mistakes in his final few seasons.

Anyone that looks at Shanahan's tenure (especially with regard to the circus at the QB position) in Washington and dreams wistfully for his return is out of touch with reality.

Edit:

Yet this isn't the point of the thread. What I will say is that I think that the OP is fundamentally flawed for two reasons. First, the offense we ran this year and at New England had nothing to do with McDaniels other than featuring a few of his personnel selections. Second, Kubiak's offense will not work with Tebow as the type of linemen required for the zone blocking scheme are not what's needed to protect a QB in a spread system.

Except for the fact that Tebow has been horrible when passing outside the pocket, on bootlegs, etc.

As inaccurate as he has been all year, Tebow is a much better pocket passer than when he takes off downfield. His biggest struggles this season have come when he has to improvise and throw on the run.

When throwing outside the pocket, Tebow’s completion percentage dropped 13 points while his yards per attempt fell by almost two yards. He tossed nearly four times as many touchdowns as interceptions when inside the pocket, but his touchdown-to-interception ratio outside the pocket was a mediocre one-to-one.

In Week 15 the Patriots flushed Tebow outside the pocket on nine dropbacks. No other Patriots opponent was forced outside the pocket more than five times in a single week. Tebow completed only 2-of-8 passes for 42 yards and took a sack outside the pocket against New England.

People forget that Plummer was astonishingly accurate throwing on the run, something that I'm not sure Tebow is.

SIGH. Tebow hasn't mastered the Chuck Noll passing scheme yet. Patience.

Tebow's proven far more accurate on the run than he has from the pocket. Which makes it utterly astounding to me that we called 2-3 designed roll outs in 13 games this year. Baffling to me.

Has he been more accurate on the run, or has he found more success with midrange passes after scrambling due to breakdowns in coverage?

Dude. The guy squeezed wins out of his 3rd string QB to get into the playoffs.

McCoy's record of success as an OC?

1-5 with Kyle Orton
8-5 with Tim Tebow.

Hater conclusion? Tebow sucks and McCoy is some kind of genius.

Irrational.

Wrong but you are fundamentally retarded so no need explaining. Just keep going to your "hater" excuse when people make points you don't like.


Just in case you actually have a cell of life, I am saying Kubiak is not the offense for Tebow. So don't switch to it. Find someone else who can create an offense to Tebow. You think McCoy can't, I am not so sure. Not that Tebow sucks but that his skillset isn't geared to Kubiak's style.

My point was Kubiak's smart enough to make a system work for Tebow. He opened up Leinart with passing right off the bat when he came in. Then he got hurt and Koob started throwing right away with TJ Yates, the guy nobody heard of until Koob needed him.

Did Kubiak change the offense for the two backups? Sure. But did he put them on ice for the first half and then expect them to pull off miracle comebacks. Nah. That wouldn't be smart.

kubiak is not available, so Mccoy is probably the next best thing.

Bad idea. Just keep working on our own offense and then people will copy us. We don't have Arian Foster so the texans offense wouldn't be all that great. Oh we don't have Andre Johnson and that oline either.
