Now, let’s look at Gio Bernard. The offense looks significantly better when he is out there. As soon as the linebackers try to blitz Andy, he can do a little screen play or dump-off to Gio in the open field. Gio in the open field? Good luck getting him. So, Jay, you have Gresham, Eifert and Bernard. Learn how to use them!
You use those tight ends and that extremely fast scat back correctly, and this offense will be very hard to stop. Not only will it help in the passing game, but with Green, Eifert and Gresham to worry about, that leaves tremendous opportunities in the run game. Then Green-Ellis or Gio all of a sudden aren’t facing stacked boxes and instead are running down-field and straight for the endzone.
It seems like common sense to me……
