I have a basic question for the board:
Is it better, in an open scrimmage, to show more on the defensive side than the offensive?
1. Make opposing offenses spend valuable practice time rehearsing against multiple blitzes
2. Give opposing defenses very little to practice against
I understand the defense is generally ahead of the offense early in the fall practices, but I am looking for a silver lining in the OL play.
I would hope the new OC would be able to call for a play designed to counter so many blitzes, but 'Nuss chose not to in order to keep it hidden for an opponent.
Is it possible the vanilla play made the OL look worse than it really is?
Or do I need to stop drinking my lunch?
