"To a degree … we're blowing a lot of it up ..."
In today's DetNews, the new coaches discuss their vision for the offense:
Reading between the lines (which I'd invite everyone to do), I think Vincent Smith may have a reason to be nervous:
"It's a different style of run game," Jackson said. "You have to have a back who can go down hill and do it successfully quite a bit. We have a couple guys built for this and a couple guys we'll have to wait and see."
Speaking as a fan of the spread 'n shred, I'm intrigued by what Borges and company might be able to do with the returning players. His remarks about Denard make sense to me. (Aside: I wish they'd go easy on the whole "toughness" / "physical" theme. I'm tired of it already. Do they think the O-line played soft last year? Does anyone else think that?)
