    Hard to keep calm about this guy the more you hear. I know it’s only shorts and stuff, but he had some pretty stellar play at PennState and especially that Rose Bowl. I think he makes a pretty good impact this year. I’d love to see us run 4 wide a couple of times.

      I also would enjoy seeing some 4 wide…. the more looks we can show and execute, the better!

    It’s good to temper expectations, of course. But it’s also good to have lots of talent in the roster too.

    A far as running 4 WR sets, I suppose there will be some of that … but don’t forget we’got two really capable receiving tight ends, and three capable receivng RBs too.

    The real value in having well stocked shelves in the pantry is three fold:

    1) Quality backups when starters get dinged up, some of which is inevitable

    2) Quality play on special teams which can easily make the difference between a W and a L.

    3) Giving defenders hard choices to make no matter who is lined up where on the offense.

      Agreed on all fronts. I think we’ll see Goodwin a bit at the 2 this year. I fully expect Desean to miss at least one game with injury. It’s kind of par for his career at this point. so the more ready Godwin is, the better.

    At Atlanta Koetter was famous for running four receivers deep which was impossible for two safeties to cover and the QB only had to see who wasn’t covered and throw him the ball. It was very effective. However, up to now we did not have four speedy receivers on our team who had great hands in order to try that offensive trick here, but we do now. It will be great to watch. When our speedy receivers get tired, just go to a three tight end offense with Howard, our Canadian TE, and Brate which will create mismatches all over the field, and Jameis could still throw it to Sims out of the backfield. Koetter has got to be like a kid in the candy store now!
