Then why did the 49ers change up their offense when Kaep came on? Why didn't the Redskins run the same offense with Cousins or Beck last year as they did with RG3? You adapt your scheme to fit your players strengths. It's no coincidence the Ravens are so much better with an oc that knows Flaccos strengths and calls his plays accordingly.

You can have a base scheme in place but you need to adapt to fit what your players do best and get the most out of them. Patriots might have a great scheme in place, but you think they used the two TE's as often as they did without gronk and Hernandez? Probably not but they created plays by the strength of the personnel they have at their disposal to get their most dangerous weapons on the field.

Because those happened midway through the season. I'll agree in certain situations you adapt. Flacco hasn't played any better, he's always been excellent in the play-offs. Ravens/Flacco looked the exact same in regular season.

Eh Idk about that, ask any raven fan and they'll tell you what a difference switching coordinators made for that team, not only does he use their most valuable asset more effectively (run game) but having been Flaccos position coach all year, he knows his strengths and what type of offense he's best at and adjusted the offense accordingly.

If it made no difference they wouldn't have asked Caldwell to stay after firing Cameron if he was giving the same results.

I understand what you're saying though, and I hope Olson is around for a while so we can build according to what he liked to do.

Caldwell knew the offense, terminology an playbook. They were hardly going to get some guy off the street who knew none of this. Generally when it comes to drafting a QB teams will change systems to suit him if they like the QB that much(1st round pick it's obvious they will). Pats didn't draft Gronk and Hernandez to be mainly blocking tight ends and just luckily found out they were excellent pass-catchers.

Obviously teams need to adapt and change it up to a certain extent but I think the foundations stay the same. Redskin and Ravens didnt suddenly switch blocking schemes for example, same with Pats. Either way we still have a very long way to go to be a decent team.

A: Yeah, no question. And what do they do well? What type of runners do we have? What type of blockers do we have up front? And I think you have to base your scheme…upon that, as opposed to coming in and saying, This is what I do and this is what I've done. You've got to take a look at your personnel and find out what they do best and try to build upon those strengths.


nice he is saying all the right things


Thing is if you look at the type of runners (namely McFadden) we have and the type of blockers, they don't seem to match. I guess something will have to be done personnel wise one way or another. And since Mcfadden seems to be in their plans, the changes will probably come on the offensive line.

He had one hell of a year with Veldheer and Wiz on the line, so they are fine. As for the rest of em, personally IDGAF about a single one of them being here.

+1

I wasnt saying an OC should drastically change his entire scheme and playbook to fit his players, but he should be able to adapt somewhat and find ways to utilize his playmakers in a way that will be most beneficial- something Knapp was never able to do. He didnt have to completely change everything, but he should have realized that their best player was useless in the scheme and something had to be altered, even if just a little bit.

Just confirming why I thought it was important to have our OC for senior bowl practices.

[ Raiders officially hire Greg Olson as OC]

"The key for me is that he's here and he's able to evaluate the players and get a good feel for the players so that when we go back and begin to go through the evaluation process with him, with the players we have on the roster right now, you can kind of have a vision for where some of those guys fit it."

Some here thought that having the OC before hand was not important,
