Kevin Demoff, the chief operating officer for the St. Louis Rams, has expressed hopes that the St. Louis Rams will look like the New Orleans Saints on the offensive side of the ball next year. Demoff talked about the offense in a post on TurfShowTimes.com:
I think you could see this offense resemble an offense like the Saints, where you have four or five players catch 40 to 50 balls, but nobody who catches 70 or 80. I’m not saying that we are the Saints’ offense, we need to improve to become that, but more that style where anybody can be a threat on any play (NFL.com).
Demoff also talked about introducing more hurry-up schemes to benefit quarterback Sam Bradford:
Our coaches noticed that we were more effective in the hurry-up, spread concepts a year ago, and not only did we make more plays but we were able to dictate the tempo more and neutralize the pass rush. We now have the personnel to match that style on offense with an offense that can (have) multiple tight ends, empty backfields and different personnel combinations to try and stress the defense and create mismatches.
Oh man, is it football season yet?
