What Exactly Is A Spread Offense?

Have you ever stopped to consider that question? I’ve observed a lot of commentary about this “offense” here, on the rest of the blogosphere, on the DP-and-RMN-osphere, and from the idiot-on-tv-osphere. This commentary takes different forms and attitudes.

A. I don’t like Jeremy Bates because he runs the spread offense.
B. Josh McDaniels is a great choice for Head Coach because he runs the spread offense.
C. A physical team always beats a spread offense.
D. A spread offense can’t run the ball effectively.
You get the idea. It is my strong belief that there is no original form of offense called a spread offense. I think that everybody will agree with me, once they read this post. See you in continue-reading-ville….
