    I disagree with this. I think the most important part of this offense is the slot receiver. I guess my offense would be more of a Run and Shoot/WCO offense hybrid. Short crossing routes and quick outs by the slot receivers would be paramount for me.

    I would also rather have a bruising back who can pass block really well, rather than a RB like Bush who is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. It would be nice to have a backup who is that kind of back. Someone like a Bradshaw, or even better(getting a slightly old school here) Dave Meggett. Anyone who is considered a third down back would be an excellent back-up here. They would primarily get playing time against those teams that have poor pass rushes, when an extra blocker isn't required to stay in.

      Yes, you'd want a big bruising halfback that could block if you're going to be passing that much. I think someone like Garrison Hearst in his prime would be great.
