Will the Atlanta Falcons still use the zone blocking scheme next year or will they go to more of a man blocking attack like we did when Coach Koetter was here before?

You need to put "Saints" in the title actually

No knock to all the Saints threads btw because I love it.

Correct. Koetter has always mixed gap and zone running. My guess is he will run more zone, but still mix in gap principles.

Heard a Bucs beat writer the other day say that Koetter wanted to run a lot more outside zone in Tampa but was limited by his personnel.

knew Koetter was coming when Quinn said other than Mack and Matthews he could scrap the rest. Those are the only 2 linemen that could play in either scheme. 

It won't be a pure zone or pure man scheme. "Maybe it's something really cool we don't even  know about yet".-Frank the Tank.

I started this thread wondering if we need to acquire small, fast guys or big, slow guys. Apparently we need to acquire big, fast guys. You can't get them in the middle and/or bottom of the draft.

DQ, TD have both made it clear we will run outside zone but we will mix inside zone. We aren't going to run man power and we don't have the personnel to do it.

This. There will be some plays where we're chiefly using man principles, but the overwhelming majority of the time, the option won't be zone or man, but rather inside or outside zone.

Quinn said we're going ZBS inside and outside. Hopefully we mix in some power runs. With Kutty and Mularkey on the squad that's highly possible. Better fix the OLine regardless of what we run. Quinn already said 3 of the 5 Dimi OLinemen suck.

If they are going to mix in some man (which is my guess), no way they’ll tell us about it now.  Better to say they’re sticking to 100% ZBS and try and catch the first team or two off guard or unprepared for it.
