Let Us Reminisce....the Run N Shoot Offense Of Yore....

Ah, the good old days, when the only offense scoring faster than ours was our opponents'.

The Glanville, run & shoot team had a real o line that could run and pass block, and a defense wasn't afraid to roll the dice. It also featured safteys that could tackle, and an undersized dline that could stop the run when it needed to, and special teams that could change the momentum of the game. They weren't the most talented bunch but they played with passion, and other teams did not want to play them because they hit hard and swarmed to the ball.

They beat the saints in the playoffs at their place. More than this generation can say in terms of playoff success.

That 4 wide was always kind of cool.....Chris Miller is in my top 5 fave ATL QB's......Rison, Haynes, Thomas, ....that one guy.....any mems from those days?

We weren't a pure run and shoot when Glanville was the coach and Miller the QB. We ran the red gun which had some run n shoot principles. When June Jones took over and Jeff George came in we were a pure run n shoot. They went off in 1995 when we had three 1,000 yard WRs and a 1,000 yard RB with Ironhead.

This^^

And my fav memory from that period was Bobby Hebert--bad shoulder and all--getting us to the playoffs after he took over for George

That team was incredibly undisciplined. The penalties usually did them in, and they were usually stupid penalties. They also lost games often when they went to the prevent D. There was plenty of talent on the roster, but the Smith's were to cheap to keep or add to it, and Glanville was too much of an idiot redneck to keep the team in check and the players focused. I was a fan though and loved them just the same as now.

The good ole June Jones days gotta dust a few cobwebs off if we're going back that far.

Isn't he like the HC of the Rainbow Warrior's in Hawaii????

Can't beat that for a retirement gig.

Actually June Jones has been coaching SMU for about 4 or 5 years now. Got them their first bowl win a couple years back since before they suffered the death penalty.
