Identity crisis? I think Man-Ball is going to have to wait at least one more season. We need to run the zone read more often! I think Al Borges knows it and soon, so will all other competent teams. Ofcourse we'll still sprinkle in the stretch, the pulls, but when we need to safely move the ball on the ground when all else has failed, including the confidence of our passer, (screens, staying in the pocket, stepping into throws) we will go back to the zone read. Why? Because it works and we have perhaps an even more competent QB to run this than we have in the last 4 years. I mean, he was the top rated dual threat QB coming out of HS.
Maybe this is best for us! Perhaps we need to be who we really are, instead of who we want to be. At least, for one more year, when our highly rated O-line and RB classes mature.
