I don't think we ever go away from a run first offense. I sure hope we don't. What we might see is the pass plays being a tad more aggressive (deeper routes, etc). I think we basically already saw this in New Orleans.
We might pass the ball more, due to having a more experienced QB and what should be a great line, but I doubt the Air Raid is in the plans. Air Raid is an entire system for offensive football -- not simply an increased emphasis on throwing the ball. As long as CNS is in charge, I don't see us making a change in offensive philosophy like that. He wants our offensive identity to be one of violence at the point of attack. Air Raid is great, but it's not how our program is wired.
For fun, here's a great write up on the history and such of the Air Raid. The author's work is really, really good for folks who like to nerd out on football. Enjoy!
The personal story of the rise and development of the Air Raid offense, the story of the men who developed and mastered it -- its originators, Hal Mumme and
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Officially we will be "balanced".
But I think it will be more like 2010, where we were 55% pass, 45% run. But the screen game is really like an extended run, even though they're classified as a pass.
The screen game will be dominating with Hart and Yeldon.
