Thread: Anyone who thinks eli will not flourish in in a west coast offense....

    Anyone who thinks eli will not flourish in in a west coast offense....

    Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh9IyF9YV18

    Near the end it says eli's skillset is ideal for a west coast offense.

    Maybe so so lets see what will happen in a quicker type offense. Yet even though he has the skills to run for yardage, he hardly does it and seems to not know that he may have to run more when the talent around him has decreased like last year.

    I saw some of the quicker playcalling during the game in Detroit, and actually it looked like Eli was doing well with it. We'll see how it goes.

    The last comment, "Given time by his offensive line, this QB will pick NFL defenses apart" ...says it all!

    We all hope that will be the case.

    Flourish? Probably not.

    West Coast relies a lot on option routes, something this current personnel is not very good at.

    We should see an improved offense with the uptempo style and mid range passing, but I doubt "flourish".

    I'd settle for "don't suck".

    Everyone has the right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

    I don't think he would flourish at all

    WC offense calls for touch pass skills

    Eli .... in his 10 year career has never shown the ability to throw a nice touch pass

    GB doesn't exactly run a west coast offense.

    Rodgers really tries to avoid throwing to the middle of the field.

    He throws mostly outside. Back shoulder throws in particular.

    Then a lot of quick dump off type throws to his backs and Cobb

    He'd flourish in any offense that allows him more then 4 seconds to pass
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!
