  1. I agree with a lot of what Connelley says in his piece, but none of this matters more than the tilting of the rules to the offense. Holding is practically legal now and is only called in the most egregious examples. The ability for linemen to go downfield (even for 3 yards) affects the ability of LBs to read run vs. pass. Offensive pass interference is never called, and when it is, it’s never consistent.

    Perhaps I missed it in the details but having a QB that can take advantage of run opportunities is only half of the need, they must represent a reasonable passing threat as well (recent case in point: Jason Hurts). Optimal offense requires some degree of duality, and they have to a decently balanced run/pass threat. Admittedly I scanned it quickly so it may have been covered.

    Also, there was no listing of a competent OL which should precede all other points. Perhaps this is so very significant it didn’t have to be mentioned at all. Guess I was looking for some descriptors of what that line might look like in the optimal offense (size, mobility, experience).
