But again, I'm not sure that they would fit into the offense Reid wants to run.
It all depends on what we think he "wants to run".
Did he want to run the short/quick passing offense he ran during his early years in Philly or did he have to run it because he didn't have the downfield WRs?
Did he want to run the downfield, balls/bust offense he ran in Philly during his later years there or did he have to run it because Vick doesn't have the consistency to operate a short passing game.
He has two clearly different offenses that he's run with some success in the past. About the only constant has been his utilization of the runningback and it doesn't matter who's under center for that - Jamaal Charles is the evolutionary Brian Westbrook.
I'm just reluctant to cite 'his' offense at this point because frankly, he's done a lot
of different stuff as a HC.
