I see no problem there because Quinn needs to keep a eye on Shanahan. Ive never been sold on dude as a offensive coordinator and ive never been a fan of that zone scheme blocking. Never liked it when Atlanta ran it under Mora and Alex Gibbs either....... I prefer a man on man scheme, where you wear down the defense. It works, but its too finesse for short yardage situations.

I understand thats your opinion and how you feel about Kyle.

But Kyle made Brian Hoyer relevant and that is saying a ton. Not just because of the Browns lack of talent, but because of the complete dumpster fire that team is with it's GM and owners meddling in game day affairs.

And then all you have to do is watch this and you know the Falcon's have the right guy. Strong willed, decisive and smart.

Just my preference. I like fullback oriented offenses. I like play action type offenses. I want to beat up the defensive front, and that zone scheme is just trickery. It works, but it doesnt wear down a defense. Most teams in the NFL cant convert short yardage situations with the run anymore because of the finesse offensive schemes that are being run now.

what? I mean i dnt agree with that statement that a zbs doesnt wear down a defense.. go back and check the playoff game we had against st louis in 04? I believe we ran for 250+yds and their defense was gassed.

Its a hard scheme to stop for a d lineman.

They was gassed because Michael Vick ran wild all over the field that day:

It does wear a defense down. Dlineman get tired of running sideways every run play just about. Foster wore us down a few years ago to the point there was nothing we could do with him late in the 4th qtr. And most zbs systems use a FB. Arian's fb's go to the pro bowl just about every year. What makes you say zone teams don't use a fb? Every one I can think of uses a FB. Wash did with Shanny, Houston, and Cleveland. Denver did with TD. We did with Justin Griffith. A FB is a major part of a zbs

That's true. Zbs wears a defense out by running you side ways to death. Dlineman hate that. Especially if it's a defense known for power. Best way to defuse a strong dline is to get it running sideways. Sideline to sideline. They hate it.

Nice. I wouldn't waste too much time with the troll however.

I think (and hope) that is only for the preseason (or part of the preseason). I hope Quinn will call the defense in the regular season.

Are you under the impression Kyle doesn't use playaction?

Did i say he didnt?? I pointed out what i like. I like screens too, and im pretty sure he has that too. My problem is the ZONE BLOCKING. I dont particularly like offenses built around that.

Fair enough, though I don't agree that it doesn't wear defenses down. If anything it makes the defense cover more ground which wears the big guys up front down faster.

Zone blocking is borderline clipping. I never liked it. To me, its a sissy approach to blocking. If it works, it works, but i wouldve taken Chan Gailey over Shanahan. With the talent the Falcons have, Gailey couldve done some things with them.
