Wondering if Linehan has something up his sleeve




One has to wonder why a decorated offensive coordinator like Scott Linehan called such a vanilla game when he was battling a lot of 7 man fronts and cover-2. You also have to wonder what he plans on doing now that Stafford isn't playing for a few weeks. The time is now to pull out something nobody has seen before.

I really do think that Linehan has something that he's hiding right now. It just seemed like he held a lot of his normal plays that I've seen have success in the past back, and I'd just like to know why. Sure, the running game stalled early and Stafford got hurt, but no matter what, you have to be aggressive against any defense, especially on the road in a hostile environment. Shaun Hill may not be a Matthew Stafford, but he's no Drew Stanton either. He's had success in this league and I know Linehan will play to his strength come Sunday. I also think he will do something crazy involving Jahvid Best and that two tight end set, as well. Because if he don't, I'm going to start wondering why he clamored for Nate Burleson when he isn't getting him or Calvin Johnson involved. 

You have to do something similar to what the 2008 Dolphins with the Wildcat offense. Nobody expected that and it even took the Patriots so off guard that they got blown out trying to stop it. From 1-15 to 11-5, thanks to that offense and a surprisingly good defense. Our defense is better than expected, could the offense be cooking up something for the future?  I want to see something I haven't seen before, hopefully ever. I know Linehan is qualified for the job and he's got the personnel to do it, but does he have moxie to go against the grain for the better of the offense? We will see.
