Bill Cosby played fullback once. You wouldn’t want to make Bill Cosby irrelevant, would you?
Just how effective would an early 1990’s-style pro-offense be if they were warped into today’s game? Would it be a solid underdog strategy? As the field continues to shift towards passing, would this possibility become more and more feasible?
This is the main crux of Episode 7-1: We look at just how sustainable an offense like this would be, as suggested by a reader email.

Below are the show notes:
— How the reliance on running in SF and SEA factors in to this.
— The question of developing players for the “ideal” roster in the future versus spending spots on players to create wins in the now.
— If the game isn’t at the point where run offense can be an underdog yet, do we think that point will come in the future?
— Ultimately, if we see a situational run offense take hold for half a season, then fall dead as teams adjust … is that a success?
