    The fact that they lead the league in average time of possession over the past 3 seasons at 37 minutes per game probably has something to do with their low sacks number. The next closest team is the Bears, a whopping 3 minutes behind at 34 minutes per game.

    In 2018, we were ranked 12th in the league in time of possession, which on the surface looks pretty good. However, the fact that we were 28th in the league in total points scored makes it look as if we didn't do much when we had the ball (teams playing prevent once they were ahead of us).

    The power of Tom Brady to manipulate the defense. I love how defenses are tired, they can barely get into their stance and bam a 5-8 200 pound FB leans into the end zone, after a 10 play 90 yard, 8 minute drive. You run a strategic no huddle, not a hurry up offense, but a no huddle, have RB's that are solid at both the pass and run, using the same personnel all the way down the field, you keep that defense 11 out there for all 10 or so plays, crazy the defense be dragging ass the last 3 plays of the drive and just give up the TD.

    This sounds similar to Gruden's offense his first time around with the Raiders. He'd have two base offensive formations with the same players and be able to run 15 different plays out of each. Defenses never knew what was coming.

    and we already know carr can run this offense easily as he put up 69% pct and 4100 with nothing but richard and cook as his recievers,now add a.b,twill,grant/renfro,jacobs and richard in the mix,gonna be explosive offense

    Yep, Gruden is slowly adding his skill position players to the roster, players that can do multiple things well, receivers that can block, backs that can block as well as run and catch the ball. Carr mentioned, Gruden is creating plays as they go, so his playbook is not limited to what's on paper, ton more in his head.

    The only thing that bothers me in your scenario is Richard. He's a fumble machine waiting to happen.

    We don't have Tom Brady though. Put a thoroughbred in a race with quarter-horses, he'll still lose without the right jockey. In other words, Tom Brady drives that offense by not only making the throws, but he's got the confidence of his team, composure, grit, swagger, etc all of which combine to form the glue to their offense. How many times has Tom Brady willed the Pats to wins with no-name receivers who make Jordy Nelson look like Megatron?

    I'll believe DC can lead this team to a playoff win when I see it. He can throw for a 90% completion percentage against prevent defenses all day in losses, which doesn't amount to anything in terms of success or credibility. Hopefully the left side of this offensive line can be at least average, otherwise our pocket is going to be nothing but a dance floor for good-ol' "happy feet".
