devotee of the “ air coryell” “sid gilman” offense. If so it i’ll be interesting to see how the giants possibly institute this with their current roster.
I watched Coryell develop this in St. louis in the early 70’s with the Cardinals and then was fascinated and amazed by Mike Martz “tweaking” of this to the “greatest show on turf” with the Rams, first as OC, then as head coach after Vermeil retired with a super bowl victory from his offensive coordinator’s offense.
The problem is this vertical offense requires a strong and big offensive line that can hold its blocks, a strong sturdy qb who can take a beating, yet put the ball donfild to a spot, at least to two very fast wr’s who can run to the spot, a rb who can pass pro, is quick and a great receiver. Watching this work at the game is amazing in a way that tv can really never show. The St. louis fans i don’t think really appreciated how great this offense was with Kurt Warner running it and all the parts working.nKurt took a beating but he could put the ball to spot where the receivers got to it.
i’ll leave it there it’s too long already but who here thinks the giants roster can make this offense work without a lot of reconstruction. DJ has the spot accuracy and ability to take a hit does he have the arm? Probably but the rest of the equation seems a long way away.
Please let me know and if it’s all not worth it I can delete.
