Default The Coryell Offense and our Draft (Tedd Ginn Jr.)

Another good point when claiming that Ginn is a very possible candidate for our #9 pick is the type of offense that Cam Cameron likes to run.

Cameron likes to run the Coryell offense which has the following characteristics...

Quote:
-It is a "stretch-the-field vertically" offense, predicated on the complementary effects of throwing deep and running the football
-The receivers often run intermediate-to-long routes
-The QB takes more 5- and 7-step drops
-It emphasizes maximum pass protection, to protect the QB until the receivers get open downfield
-It is committed to the power running game. The running game opens up opportunities for big downfield completions, and vice versa.
This offense stresses throwing deep for downfield completions and "stretching the field vertically". Obviously there are a couple of guys who are capable of doing those things in this years draft class but Ted Ginn Jr. is exactly what this offense requires. Combined with Randy Mueller's adoration of fast WR's with playmaking abilities, I think Cameron and Mueller can agree that Ginn Jr. would be a great fit.

In the Coryell O

Quote:
QBs must be able to throw deep with accuracy. They are typically pocket passers with big arms. Examples of solid Coryell QBs are the Cowboys' HOFer Troy Aikman (6-4 220) and former Ram Kurt Warner (6-2 200)
Quote:
WRs must be able to stretch the field. The name of the game is speed. By contrast, the WCO favors physical possession receivers, such as Jerry Rice.
Quote:
RBs carry a heavy load and tend to have good power. Norv Turner in particular has preferred to feed the ball to a feature back (Emmitt Smith in DAL, Terry Allen in WAS, Stephen Davis in WAS, LaDainian Tomlinson in SD, Ricky Williams in MIA). So the Raiders went out in FA and signed former Jet LaMont Jordan (5-10 230) to a big 5 year / $27.5 MM deal to be that workhorse RB. Examples of solid Coryell RBs are former Redskin John Riggins (6-2 230), former Cowboy Emmitt Smith (5-9 215), and the Chiefs' Priest Holmes (5-9 213)
Ronnie Brown is a great fit..

Quote:
TEs tend to be strong blockers; they are relied upon heavily in pass protection and in paving the way for RBs in the ground game. In general, the WCO favors TEs with receiving over blocking skills (e.g. the Jets' Doug Jolley) whereas the Coryell O favors the reverse, although obviously a TE who can do both can fit into any system. This explains, in part, why 2004 rookie 7th rounder Courtney Anderson (6-6 270), with his size and ability to run-block, was able to leap-frog former 2nd rounders Doug Jolley (6-4 250) and Teyo Johnson on the Raiders depth chart
McMichael was never a great blocker so I can see how this might of played a role in his release (along with his decline in performance and high salary)

Quote:
OL tend to be big and physical compared to their WCO counterparts. Some WCO teams have gotten by with smaller OL (e.g. the Niners in the 1990s and the Broncos of recent years), because the linemen are able to block at angles and only need to maintain pass protection for a short period of time. Coryell OL are road graders in the running game, but they must also pass protect on drawn-out deep passing plays. Examples of solid Coryell OLs are the Cowboys' massive (at the time) championship OL in the 1990s and the Chiefs' OL in recent years
OL plays an important role in the Coryell Offense because they are vital in protecting the QB so that he can allow the WR's enough time to get open for the downfield completion. The OL also plays an important role in paving the way for the running game which in turn opens up the passing game. Hudson Houck, our OL coach and probably one of the best in the NFL, prefers big and physical OL with great footwork so I can see him and Cameron going after two or three OL in the middle rounds that fit that description. Don't forget Houck also prefers taking OL in the middle rounds and finding gems in the later rounds a la Alabi.

No one has given me a reason why we should take Ginn and not Meachem.

And that's the same offense Linehan brought in. I don't think that is the offense that San Diego ran however, I'm almost positive they ran a WCO offense last season.

He places his offensive system around the staff that he has. As draftguru said there is nothing in there that says anything about Ginn being better then Meachem, actually plenty saying the exact opposite effect because of the need to run good routes and have good hands.

On a side note if our QBs are doing 5-7 step drops we better get some offensive line and a good left tackle. Else we will be on our 3rd string QB or even practice squad QB by the bi-week.

Another great post man. This really doesn't prove that Ginn should be the pick... but it was good reading. Nice work.

I hope we do grab some guys like Beekman, Grubbs, Sears, Duckworth, etc. in the middle rounds, those kinda guys could help us out, and if this is the offense Cam runs, our line is gonna need all the help they can get.

By the way, I'm behind you on this Ted Ginn thing. These other '"phinfans" are just in denial. It's ok, we will see on the 28th.
