Their GM is unproven, and it seems like Bradley is mostly just relying on players having been worth his old buddies' time as an indication they'd work for him, especially considering that defensive system is one that Gus lifted from his time with Pete the past few seasons, right?
They appear to be trying new wrinkles offensively; up-tempo, spread, read-option (with Robinson and Sanders). That's a good way to even the playing field if you're outgunned personnel wise. Plus, they always play Houston tough...and do you think they're intimidated by Tennessee or Indy?
They have an immediate plan to compete offensively. And, they drafted to match that plan. In the meantime they'll continue to build the trenches and get away from the gimmicky stuff.
If anything it matches Pete and John's 2010. Just throw whatever you can together to not be embarrassed year one.
