I agree Kirby and here is why. Imo last year at practices if someone was keep track of the number of rushes versus the number of passing plays being practiced, I think you would easily see why we ran the ball extremely well, tosses it less than we ran it, and why our run game was effective.
This year with our new OC's balanced approach we are likely to see a decline in our run game in favor of our passing game. (I.e balancing it out)
Thats kind of my feeling. We will see more balance but that aggressive run blocking will be sacrificed for a zone blocking scheme. It will probably be okay but they won't blow open the holes like they did. I'm good with it if it helps in the passing game.
This might sound weird but I expect more balance from the offense. I don't necessarily expect them to be better. The passing game will be better and the running game worse. My feeling is that the overall points will be down. At the same time, I expect improvements from the defense. Things will need to come together to take the next step but this team should be as balanced across the board as they have been in a while. For years we have done things great and poorly. I expect the gaps between what the Bills do well and what they struggle with to close. I hope that results in more wins.
