I favor East Coast/run the ball/vertical pass game offense
Do you say that because it's opposed to the West? Or do you have a reason?
The West Coast's opposite is the Air Coryell, which is from San Diego (the original WCO).
I thought (I could be wrong) that classic East Coast offense was built around running the ball like heck, and coupling that with PA vertical passes ala Pittsburgh. Lombardi set that tone with the Giants when he was our offensive coordinator, im sure it was around far before him. But being that football started in college waaay back in the day and the east coast had more colleges, and back then all they did was run, i always thought that the old school offense was simply known as East coast offense, and west coast offense being designed as a ying to east coast's yang. I could be wrong.
Cutler had one of the worst supporting casts in college football. He had the worst line, so he had a very short time to throw. He also had bad WRs, so he had to put the ball in small windows. Isn't that what the NFL is all about? Less time and smaller windows. He'll be fine.
Cutler is like a recently drafted version of Plummer. He doesn't know how to win, yet has good measureables.
some of the best QB of all time by your standards didnt know how to win....John Elway stanford had losing season all through his college carrer, Farve...losing College team...and Marino was on a losing team...
but you are right he is just like plummer...besides that he can throw about 30 yards farther, and is not half the scramble plummer is
