    What were we and will we be a "true" West Coast Offense??

    I saw talk here about McAdoo implementing a West Coast offense, do we know that for sure? If so, then will we be using the quick horizontal pass to set up the run, versus using the run to set up the pass like Killdrive did? Also, this is rather naive, if we were not West Coast Offense before, what were we? Is there a name for the offense Killdrive ran? Is it from the Parcells tree of coaching? Or a nameless "traditional" system?

    It could be some combination thereof. Teams that are better defending the pass (seattle, dallas) would have gameplans based on power-running, while teams with better front sevens than secondaries (washington, detroit) will get more of a WC treatment.

    We weren't running a run and shoot. It was more of an Erhardt/Perkins offense with R&S principles in the passing game.

    I'd imagine we'll be running a bit of a hybrid offense again under McAdoo. From the sounds of it the terminology is going to be WCO based, but I'm sure we'll still see Coughlin's fingerprint throughout, too. Should be fun to see how it actually unfolds.

    It will be a McAdoo/Coughlin offense.

    I don't care what they call it...I'm just excited to see Eli in a different offense.

    I think you are being over critical of KG's offense. The passing game was elegant and dynamic when everyone was on the same page and the o line was functional. I just hope Mcadoo's offense works.

    They ran a variation of the run and shoot, essentially adding a TE to the mix, but make no mistake about it, the WR routes were based on the run and shoot that KG has been running since the 80's, if not longer. TC also ran a variation of the run and shoot in Jacksonville.
