09/23/2011 - 9:18am My guess here with Cutler not

My guess here with Cutler not wanting to switch to more shotgun comes down to timing.  I remember the Mike Martz offense here in Detroit was all about timing and the receivers running proper routes.  Under center Cutler will be able to stay in motion an develop a ryhthm knowing if he takes a 5 step drop then x receiver will be here, if he's covered, then y receiver will be here.

When you have a more sophisticated pro style offense, timing is more important and it helps the QB to base that timing on his dropbacks from under center.

That type of offense puts tremendous pressure on the offensive line to pass protect for 5 and 7 step drops.  The payoff is if you're timing is right, and you're players are all doing their job, you can't stop it.

Last year 1st half performances against good defenses

MSU:  10

Iowa:  7

Penn St:  10

Wisc:  0

Ohio:  7

This year ND...7

The point is this, whether it's last year or this year our offense has struggled getting going early on in games.  The change this year is on the defensive side of the ball.  They kept it close enough so when our offense got going they had a chance to win the game.  For me the offensive results have been equal and the defensive results have been better than last year.  Last year we would not have won this would have been out of reach at halftime.

It pretty much looks like a glorified Twitter page. Which is not necessarily a bad way to view the news, if you check it a few times per day.

"But if I'm not happy every day that I wake up, why keep doing it?"

My guess is that 99% of the football team is not going to be happy everyday when they are getting the crap kicked out of them by Barwis. You put in the hard work to achieve a greater goal and win football games.

Agreed...It looked to me that Brown was containing the outside and there should have been an Inside Linebacker or Safety to clean up.
