So I’ve seen several posts stating Gleeson > Yurcich. What did you see that proves that? The bubble screens were nothing new, but seemed more effective. I noticed we usually had an offensive lineman downfield to block. But I wonder if that should be credited to Gleason or Dickey. Hell, Dunn called the first drive of the 2nd half for a TD. Is Gleeson that much better than Yurcich or is it Gundy’s system that works? Or the talent on the offensive side? Love to hear the thoughts out there.
I’m not seeing the same three plays repeated ad nauseum, so I’m putting it on Gleeson. He likes the first down = draw to RB play that Yurcich did, but he is willing to mix it up more.
So you’re saying he did some of the same things yurcich did but sprinkled in a little more nuance?
I think that he had some of the same concepts but wasn’t so married to a particular kind of script (e.g. every first play of a series needs a draw, every 3rd down in the red zone needs a fade) as MY was. He also may have been less restrained by Gundy but who knows?
So you’re leaning towards the OC is calling plays and not HCMG?
I hope so, yes. Lean, maybe.
Glad you’re definitive and not vague. Lol
Fair. I hope that Gleeson is calling plays and doesn’t get caught up in the Gundy cowardly/conservative end of half or game run/knee to ‘not lose the game’ mentality. I want feet on the throat of opponents if we can.
The play diversity was great, but I credit that to having a legitimate dual-threat quarterback, now.
Spencer had some great 10-yard-ish runs. Those are the types of plays that keep an opposing defense on its toes, constantly, wondering if Spence will throw it or run it and get another first down. With Yurcich, we didn’t have that.
