If the Titans will use the Run and Shoot on occasion, I thought this would be a good time to write a little about it. We know it's a one-RB, four-WR offense, but what else is there to it? Just what exactly is the R&S and how does it work?
For the answers to these questions, I highly recommend the following four-part series by Smart Football's Chris Brown.
Part 1 (Intro and philosophy)
Part 2 (The "Seam Read" and the "Go" concept)
Part 3 (The "Choice" concept)
Part 4 (The "Streak")
This knowledge should come in handy if we see the Run and Shoot this fall. It makes me feel better about the Titans using their first-round draft pick on Kendall Wright and also makes me feel better about the offense if Kenny Britt doesn‘t fully recuperate from his ACL injury. This offense has the potential for even mediocre receivers (Lavelle Hawkins, Damian Williams) to get open and make plays.
Looking at the draft picks, offseason moves, and now comments about the R&S, it seems that CJ has been completely marginalized. Thoughts? (Me: Yes he has, it's probably a good thing, and the Titans should at least be fun to watch, though pass pro is a concern.)
@ChaseHasbrouck Hey Chase, good observation. My thoughts: I believe we'll see more of Ringer in the passing game. He's a better receiver than CJ (ever notice how Ringer catches the ball with his hands?) and is also better in pass pro. CJ, of course, remains a better open field, yards after catch threat.
