Formations and personnel will change. The playbook will evolve because of these two things and better/worse personnel. The plays are really irrelevant when the goal is to execute better than your opponent and with superior personnel. You do all this while trying to create advantages, mismatches, etc. through the formations, personnel, etc, etc...this might confuse some folks and seem rather simple, but it's what it boils down to.
We are simply superior to our opponents athletically, top to bottom better than 90% of our opponents, and we are better prepared and conditioned top to bottom at better than 95%, if not 100% of our opponents.

Thanks for the reply Bamamanager.
More specifically, I was wondering about formations and the mismatches that we were trying to create. Last year it was obviously runs and screens with TR, routes in the flats with Smelly, and some crossing and corner routes with WR's. With TR gone, AJ more experienced, Michael Williams being a proven commodity, and (on paper) more weapons at the WR position, I was curious as to thoughts on which mismatches we're trying to create this year and the formation types we may use to get these. I would guess we would still use a combination of power sets under the center and spread shot gun formations as well. I'm not overly familiar with CDN's style or what he's really comfortable with. I didn't expect wholesale changes but thought it would have to evolve based on coaching/personnel change. I can't wait to see what our team can do on offense and see how CDN settles into playcalling. Does anyone know as to his experience with in-game play calls and/or ability to make adjustments?
Appreciate the football talk fellas. It's tough waiting around for the season to start.
