When CW was running 5-wide patters, it's because the braintrust knew that the opponent didn't have 5 DBs who could cover. Forcing the opponents 5-wide was a way to stack someone like Dedric Ward against a rookie CB from Southwest Wyoming Polytech. Brady knows how to take advantage. The incredible thing to look forward to in this offense, and I hope McDaniels is thinking in this direction, is how "convertable" this offense is. We can run power-I formations, with 3 TEs, FB, RB... and either run it, or pass out of it. How many LBs can keep up with Watson or Graham or Thomas? You'd need at least a couple of Ss to run with them in the passing game. But, if the D lines up with too many DBs as a way to protect against the pass, well then... run it at them! Dillon with Mankins, Neal out front blocking those Ss off the ball... talk about mismatches. Dillon can break arm tackles from a solo S any day. We can run 5-wide, with Branch, Brown, Jackson, Caldwell and Watson... or if any of those disappoint, with Thomas or Childress as the 5th receiver. We can run a standard front, with Branch, Jackson, Caldwell, Graham and Dillon, and do almost anything we want: run, pass, screen, playaction, inside handoff, direct snap. For years, BB has been drafting OL and DL on Day One. He finally has his linemen where he needs them, and has splurged on skill position players. This is going to be transformational for our O.
