    Pretty much what Ive been saying about them not showing their game plan in preseason. Not a big surprise here. Cant wait for Sept 8.

    "Mechanics" are different from "fundamentals." The clap count is an example of a mechanic that was fine in Week 1 and needs to be worked out over the next couple weeks. Kyler's never had the coach in his ear, and they're working that out. Those are mechanics that are important to get done right now, because the bodies on the field don't matter much.

    Maybe it doesn't work. The biggest problem, IMO, is that the WRs aren't going to be experienced enough to make the plays when it counts. But it's important to remember that these guys are running hundreds of reps during the week and we see a couple dozen during a game before Kanfield comes on the field.

    OT but Jimmy G just went 1 for 6 with 0 yards, 3 batted passes at line plus 1 int in 10 plays. ESPN gamecast showing QBR of 0? Is that even possible? Mullens going 20 for 20 & 4 TDs now lmao

    The only thing we fans have to go with is what we see.

    If K2, indeed, is playing his offense close to the vest, we can "hope" he will confound opposing defenses, but we really won't "know" unless/until we see it.

    It's always somewhere in the middle isn't it? He's not as terrible as the Rosen truthers and isn't as great as the Kyler truthers.

    A realistic approach and that's totally fair after what we all were subjected to last year. I'm in a wait and see as well.

    I am not saying the offense won't work...i am not saying it will work...however

    The league had seen up tempo offenses

    The league has seen RPO

    The league has seen crossing patterns, bubble screens, jet sweeps.

    DCs on the Cards schedule have seen Texas Tech tape by now and probably have spoken to Tech opponents DCs for ideas.

    Playing it close to the vest is fine but the info is mostly out there already. This isn't some innovative offense that will turn the league on it's ear. Kyler is the wildcard.

    Watch 10 mins of a texas tech game from last year and you will know KK aint running his offense one bit. Air Raid is in the garage waiting to be deployed.

    Do people really think that we’re not going to be able to score points?

    Good piece by Peter King. Gives me optimism for the regular season. I understand that Kliff is keeping his offense under wraps but what about the defense it's looked pretty putrid. Hopefully they are going to be more physical against the Lions.

    Not a doubt in my mind they will score points. Imo, they will average between 24-28 this season.
