obviusly there will be throws downfield i mean every offense no matter how conservative is has them.. im just talking about what Pep said and why for example me thinks like that...we will have shots downfield but it I thought, from the 2 games i saw stanford, will be limited...of course that might because no QB talent or WR on stanford
also Gregg jennings/driver/Jordy Nelson are tottally different Receivers to TY/Avery. i guess you can compare TY to Cobb so if we use him on that kind of way this will be fun to watch. I just hope we dont really limit the opportunities TY might have downfiedl.
but regardless, im really happy with the hire...this should help Coby and unlike what arians did, he might play to our strenghts..i LOVED BA, but i think he needs an OL he wont change his style, while Pep seems to play to the strenghts of the team.
That's my major issue with Arians. We needed tweaks, and he was slow to make them, even against the best defensive front we played all year.
You make good points about the differences in personnel, but I don't think there's anything about our receiver corps that would preclude us from sending them downfield. Arians did it all season long.
I've said several times, I'm not thrilled with the hire. It's good, I suppose, that Hamilton has history with Luck and Fleener, but I think familiarity is overstated at times. I'm not convinced we got THE BEST guy for the job, and I'm not convinced we did an exhaustive search either. Given the circumstances, with Arians getting hired late in the process, and Hamilton having other opportunities, it makes sense for them to go get him if they really wanted him. And perhaps it works out very well. I do think that Hamilton will be more yielding than Arians was. I'm just not all that impressed with the fact that he knows 8% of our offensive personnel.
