Over the last two weeks we saw how dynamic our offense can be when we got good QB play. We have outstanding playmakers all over the field, and we make it very difficult for teams to over-compensate towards specific areas to slow us down. In two weeks that problem is only going to be compounded when we get Santonio Holmes back. We'll have Homes and Edwards on the outside with Keller attacking the seams and a running game that can take over if you're not paying attention. Who do you double? Where do you put your safety? All of our receiving options will own one-on-one match-ups just about every week. And if a team goes DB-heavy with a lot of nickel and dime looks, we'll just pound it. What I love about the offense is that its not overly reliant on exceptional QB play. We don't rely on complicated schemes and precision passing. We have playmakers that will make you pay if you make a mistake.
I'm really excited to see us go 3-wide, with J-Co, Edwards and Holmes all rotating at the slot. With Keller at TE, that personnel group puts a lot of pressure on a defense. What do you do? Do you leave a safety back to protect against Edwards/Holmes getting deep, while letting J-Co go to work on a LB underneath? How do you cover LD sneaking out of the backfield? Do you take a LB off the field to add another DB and expose yourself to our running game? With Keller attacking the deep middle, who's going to help out the corner on Holmes?
Over the course of the season we're going to see a lot of plays like the Edwards TD from last night. Simple out routes where our receiver makes a guy miss and is off to the races. Its going to be really fun to watch. I can't wait.
