Peyton Manning has never used a large playbook, he has done just fine. You don't need a zillion plays to have a good offense.
I am sure there are a few numbers between 4 and a zillion. lets see 4 -1000000000000000000000000000000=999999999999999999999999999996
if they have only 4 plays that tells me they have only 4 alignments. I am sure there is a 2 TE set with 2wr
there is a 3 WR set with a FB and a RB
a 2 WR set with TE FB and RB
and a 2TE and 2 WR set with RB

there is your 4 plays

Why are you assuming plays and formations are synonymous?  Can't you run short slants out of any alignment?  And for what it's worth, the majority of Indianapolis's running game was the result of one play.  Remember that long stretch handoff that Peyton Manning delivered to Edgerrin James 15 times a game?  It's one play, but it has very different functions when it's run to the strong side, the weak side, the open field, the sideline, a jumbo package, a spread formation, with a fullback, with overloaded tight ends, away from the overload, etc, etc, etc.

It's still one play.

I've always said a small playbook run to perfection is much better than a large complicated playbook that half the players can't grasp.

I've seen us run a designed screen play , I've seen us run up the middle , I've seen us run a sweep , I've seen QB sneaks , I've seen end-arounds , I've seen regular pass routes.

Disregarding different formations and all possible route trees , I've just named 6 different plays off the top of my head.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Oh, no question.  Mike's full of crap.

I'm just saying, teams probably run fewer plays than we all assume.

A run up the middle, a run outside, a short throw, a long throw.

4 plays.

Four initial alignments', read the defense, route tree = 4 times  xDefenses x 9 routes.

How many is that?   That's just for a wide out. 

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

I don't see how we can make the playoffs with only 4 plays.  Somehow, someway we are going to have to come up with a 5th play............................That should put us over the top.
