It's Heath Evans talking about the Bills offense, in the context of him being in Sean Payton's offense, and suggesting Marrone's will be more of the same. He refers to it as a "no tendency offense", and specifically talks about doing it different, every time, as in "throwing a bomb on 3rd and 1".
Now, certainly I don't want to pee in the Cheerios here. I am traditionally just under The Senator's level in terms of optimism. But....
How often did we find ourselves pulling our hair out over "We threw the ball on 3rd and 1? When we have Fred Jackson on this team? WTF?" play calls last year?
How often did we fail to find the genius in running a draw play on 2nd and 20?
How often did we say "Why the hell are we not running the football? The run is working, forcing the pass 3 times and out is not."?
Well again, not to be douche, but, all of those ARE in line with "no tendency" football. Are they not?
What does that mean to you? Does it mean nothing, until you see Hackett's play calling in a game? Or, are you saying you don't want to see passes called on 3rd and 1, no matter what, and to hell with "no tendency", given last year?
Or are you comforted by the notion that "no tendency" could also mean "hey this time we are running it on 3rd and 1, next time, who knows, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it"?
