Offensive line, play calling, and schemes.

Bright future there. But...I have not heard very much about the weakness we displayed with non creative play calling, not so physical offensive line play, few if any Q.B. behind center plays, dual running back plays or tight end plays. There is also the issue of the type of blocking schemes employed and some trouble at third and short conversions. I will plead my ignorance early on about being anywhere near to a seasoned novice football analyst...but it is of great concern to me (I.M.H.O.) whether or not we are actually emphasizing a dominant physical offensive line with improved play calling, or whether it is more of what we have already seen in the last two seasons. Again I.M.H.O., it seems that physically tough and dominant offensive lines and superior play calling (to the strengths of a team) are hallmarks of National Champs. It is said that defense wins games...and that is partially true so long as you also have a dependable physically dominant offense capable of controlling the time of possession and scoring points. Does anyone know if the offensive line is getting the same attention (recruiting and S.& C. training) as the defense and if there is a desire to create more innovative play calling.
