Why I Hate The College Spread Offense

>> Saturday

Michigan QB Nick Sheridan - 11/19, 98 Yards

That translates to 5.2 yards per attempt. Terrible numbers, and though you can chalk it up to any number of things (the fact that Sheridan sucks, the new Michigan offense, whatever), the fact is that the spread is just an elaborate system of screens, hitches and slants. It kills the vertical passing game, and I hate it.

To put those YPA numbers in perspective, only 6 NFL teams had YPA numbers that were that bad last year, all of which from teams that had little or no talent at QB (St. Louis, Kansas City, Miami, Baltimore, Carolina and San Fransico).

So much is being made of the need to figure out how to slow down the spread around College Football, but I think it comes down to two or three things: speed, solid tackling and assignment discipline. Teams with enough of each can shut down a spread attack with relative ease.

Pointless and flawed rant over.

The Bears had an offense better than those numbers? Seriously? See guys, the Sex Cannon isn't THAT bad

0.3 yards better, in fact. You're going to get a boost in YPA anytime your QB has a penchant for saying, "fuck it, I'm going deep." He's bound to hit on a couple of them...and throw a fuck ton of picks. Also, how long until the Bears sign Chris Simms?

Also, has anyone else noticed A-Rodg's sweet handlebar stache during the preseason? I believe it's his way of saying, "grab on, Packers fans and hold on to your balls while I rock you to the Super Bowl."

I wanna know what Vinod Sharma thinks of the spread offense.

Don't start another flame war.

Vinod Sharma's rants are more delightful than cheating on the woman I'm committing adultery with.
