No, not the West Coast or the Fun 'n' Gun. Not the T Formation either. Three Yards and a Cloud of Dust? Keep guessing. The Princeton Offense? Well now you're talking about the wrong sport, stupid.
It's the Run 'n' Shoop!
If you haven't heard yet, former Bears' offensive coordinator John Shoop has been promoted by the Oakland Raiders from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator.
The Raiders offense and John Shoop? Talk about a Black Hole!
For those that don't remember, the "Run 'n' Shoop offense" was, as the nickname would suggest, equal parts run--typically for zero- to two-yard gains--and "shoop"--a series of short, ineffective wide receiver screens. The offense's seminal moment, however, came during a Monday night in 2003 when the Bears--an actual NFL team playing in the NFL--unforgetably ran the quarterback option...in an actual NFL game.
We hope things go better this time around for Shoop. But considering his player personnel and the mess of an organization that employs him, we would consider even a single offensive touchdown in the remaining five games a bit much to ask for.
Also, Salt 'n' Pepa once wrote a hit song about John Shoop.
