it's like he's not trying to be some sort of offensive 'guru', just doing what works, which makes him incredibly effective.

the idea is to run less plays, but rep the sh*t out of them at practice so the players can run them in their sleep.

 

This and running multiple plays out of the same formations, so the defense can't automatically know if it's run or pass just based on personnel. 

I'm not particularly knowledgeable in the intricacies of running an offense, but even I could call Dirk's plays just by seeing how they lined up and knowing his tendencies. This must mean opposing defenses were always a step ahead.

Sounds like we got shanahan back as the head coach this time with a little less arrogance.

A well practiced play, where everyone knows and executes their job, works.  And it can be basic.  I'm from a podunk town in Texas, and our coach always told us "sometimes all you have to do is want it enough to just beat your man".  Open the hole, running back hit the hole, 3 to 4 yards and a cloud of dust.
