    Just thought I'd share this with you all. Notice he went to Atlanta and overnight they became the leading rushing offense in the NFL. He's the founder of the Zone Blocking scheme which you all know we just adopted with Jeff Jagzonskinsioatioaiptioaski.

    This is interesting...

    We have 2 new coaches who studied under Bates and Gibbs...

    Just hope they were fast learners and can teach just as well

    So that's why they have different names.

    Your right let's not get in over our head. Also remember Holmgrem wasn't Walsh. Everyone starts somwhere.

    This zone scheme is going to take time to learn and get use to. Line will get better as the year goes on. Week 1 against the best front 4 in football worries me though.

    Hopefully the zone blocking scheme will be effective enough early on, at least, to take some of the pressure off Favre.

    To be fair, it should also be noted that Atlanta's OL's have had one of the best rushing QB's of modern times behind them. That's something I don't see on the Packer's roster at this time.

    As to the zone blocking scheme, while I'm optimistic on one hand that it can help turn this team around in the next year or two, on the other hand I can't help but realize that the production of any unit is a blend of talent and coaching.

    Just a couple of years ago we were supposed to have one of the best coaches and OLs in the NFL. Without a couple of key players the coach only lasted a year and the line dropped to near the bottom of the NFL rankings. Hopefully the talent is now there and they can make a similar improvement.

    Randall Cunningham never played for the Falcons and he's retired.

    To be fair Z2C, Lare did say "one of the best", not "the best".

    I really have to stop rushing through posts when I'm replying. It's really making me look like a turd lol.


    I'll agree, Vick is one of the best. I jus don't think he's one of the best.

    Z can you please clarify your last sentence? Ron Mexico is probably the best scrambling quarterback ever, and it wouldn't surprise me if he holds the rushing record for quarterbacks. Wait a minute, aren't quarterbacks paid to throw the football?

    I've seen Vick run and I've seen Cunningham run. Vick has unbelievable speed, but I don't think is a good running QB. He is gifted yes, one of the best, yes. Just not THE best.
