I expect us to go 4 wide a lot next year. I still can't believe our receiving corps is going to be this good to compliment maybe the best QB in the country.
Amari Cooper, Kenny Bell, DeAndrew White, Kevin Norwood, Robert Foster, Chris Black, Christian Jones, Cyrus Jones (maybe switching to corner), Marvin Shinn...
absurd group. are we too big to fail???
Too big to fail ? I'd say it's just quality depth.
Our typical offensive sets utilize 2 or 3-WRs. Yes, I acknowledge we have several receivers who are phenomenal & need to be in the game. Yet, I don't see the need to forgo our TE, just to put that 4th WR in the game - especially, when OJ Howard is on our team.
i agree w/ both of you we could see more more 4 WR sets but ....
it's going to be w/ OJ Howard &/or Brian Vogler as a standup TE with three wideouts.
Obviously, it's easier to keep defenses guessing when you've got 2-WRs, a TE and an HB in the game. Not to say we can't run out of a 4-WR set, it just seems to be more of a passing only set for us. I really don't recall us going with 4-wides much last season, or the year before - not because our WR corps isn't as deep as present, but because we're more multiple as an offense when we have a TE and HB in the set.
i know alot of peeps want to see Fowler (and why not he's a beast) but i hope we use OJH in a dual TE/H-back role.
Brad Smelley was unstoppable & OJ is twice the threat in the passing game plus his presence would force man coverage on the edges.
