Thread: Flexbone Opinions

    I still think the flex-bone is the best option for us. Commit to it and do it better than anyone else. You can throw enough out of the flex bone. Perhaps one of the problems now is the coach is trying to please the AD by running shotgun and trying to placate some fans by running some semblance of an option and trying to throw a certain number of passes to please others. We need to pick an offensive identity and perfect it. When the announcers say we are a triple option team that is laughable to me. Pick an offensive identity and get really good at it. I personally think the under center most of the time flex bone is our best option.

    [QUOTE=Indy;1004648 Our coaches were really high on him. They thought he was the real deal and the type guy we needed. I just think in today's college football world throwing the ball well is a must. .[/QUOTE]

    I agree that passing is a necessity in any option attack. The higher percentage in pass receptions and the more yards per catch really opens up the option running game. Like 380 yards of rushing per game. I am not saying we have to pass 25 times a game to have the defense on their heals. 10-15 passes a game with a 55+% reception rate for 100-150 would do it. If some how we developed a freakishly competent QB and offensive team like the 1985 NC team then try some more.

    The T-Option is the powerful ground game ever devised & the FLEX is the best way to run it.
    If I want your opinion & don't like it I'll tell you what it should be.

    The Flex is a passing formation. When we had great coaches we didn't throw a lot but it was effective. Exception Tracy Ham in 85NC that blew the doors off of Furman in the last22 minutes of the game with a passing game.

    I believe you. There are a lot of offenses that run the same cookie cutter offenses - SOME ARE GREAT AND SOME ARE BAD!

    The reason I like him is that he was a big kid that could run and throw. Maybe the best "quarterback" prospect we have had in several years. To bad it didn't work out.

    He was a big kid who was a great runner. His height alone would have helped him stand in the pocket and throw the deep play-action stuff we like to throw.

    There was virtually no film of him throwing as a senior, though. But I had visions of him running all over opponents. He looked like Deshaun Watson running around on the field.

    I wonder if the injury problem that ended his career was what held him back as a recruit?
    Thanks, Rastabot!

We make it much more difficult when we are in effect a run only team, but when we continually bring in QB's that can't throw that's what happens.

    BTW, I don't know who all these people are that everyone on here says are flex only people. Everyone I know just wants to win. The vast majority of people that were here at the beginning are to old to care or have passed away.

    Amen! Even if it takes going back to square shoulder pads and britches that cover the players knees! Just win.

    Agreed. Wasn’t he forced to take the ex-UVA head coach as The D coordinator at one point? Talk about a conflict of interest.
