The Washington Redskins lost more than a quarter of their starting offense in one fell swoop Monday Cheap Quenton Nelson Jersey , with receiver Paul Richardson and guards Brandon Scherff and Shawn Lauvao all going on injured reserve because they need season-ending surgery.Coach Jay Gruden said that Richardson has been playing through a shoulder injury that is now too much to bear, while Pro Bowl right guard Scherff tore a pectoral muscle and left guard Lauvao tore the ACL in his left knee in Washington's 38-14 loss to the visiting Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.That setback ended a three-game winning streak for the NFC East-leading Redskins (5-3), who brought in several offensive linemen for tryouts Monday and signed tackle Austin Howard and guards Jonathan Cooper and Luke Bowanko.Before the signings were announced, Gruden said he expected for at least one new player off the street to start next weekend at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)."We just have to make sure we stick with the plan. Keep it fairly simple but not too simple," said Gruden, whose team has been at its most successful when Adrian Peterson runs the ball effectively but he had only 17 yards on nine carries against Atlanta. "Still going to challenge our guys to do some great things and hopefully the guys that we sign can fit right in and play."As it is, Washington already was facing injury issues along its line: Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams missed the game against Atlanta after having surgery on his dislocated right thumb and could be out another two or three weeks.Plus, Morgan Moses' status is considered day to day, Gruden said, after the starting right tackle hurt the MCL ligament in his right knee against Atlanta but returned to the game after limping off the field in the first half."This is something you don't want to go through. But it is pro football, and you have to go through it," Gruden said. "Fortunately we have a very good line coach in Coach (Bill) Callahan."Things got so bad against Atlanta that the one healthy starting lineman, center Chase Roullier, ran over to the sideline while Scherff was being tended to on the field to check in with Callahan about who should play where."Just to figure out where he wanted guys to go," Roullier said. "Maybe they want me at guard. Maybe they want me at center."It turned out that he stayed at center, but otherwise, the shuffling went like this: Tony Bergstrom, who entered the game at left guard when Lauvao got hurt on the game's third play, shifted to right guard in place of Scherff; Ty Nsekhe, the backup who started at left tackle in place of Williams, moved to left guard; and rookie third-round draft picks Geron Christian made his NFL debut at left tackle.Washington essentially was out of linemen at that point, so if another injury had happened, Gruden said defensive end Matt Ioannidis would have been forced to play guard, something he said he'd never done at any level."We were about a hangnail away from that happening," Roullier said. "That would have been interesting."Richardson's first season with the Redskins after leaving the Seattle Seahawks as a free agent ends with 20 catches for 262 yards and two TDs."Paul's been dealing with this thing all year," Gruden said of the AC joint injury. "Toughed it out for eight weeks and I think the pain has been bothering him so much that he needs to get it fixed."Gruden said that starting slot receiver Jamison Crowder, who's missed four games with an ankle injury, might practice Wednesday.Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at ://HowardFendrichFrank Reich’s offense: The Maryland years Over the next few days I’m going to give you more intricate details on what I expect the 2018 Frank Reich led Indianapolis Colts offense to look like. I have arrived at this conclusion based on his history as a player and a coach. I will say Nate Hairston Jersey , that while this is an educated theory (I subjected myself to all 16 San Diego Chargers contests of the 2014 season for this series, you’re welcome) it is at best a theory. We don’t know, beyond a shadow of a doubt what his offense is going to look like, but I feel I can get pretty close considering his influences and what the man himself has said. Tomorrow morning we will cover Frank Reich’s time in the NFL and progress as the week goes on, culminating in what I expect The 2018 Indianapolis Colts offense to look like. I hope you enjoy reading about the Colts new head coach as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing this piece.If you missed yesterday's intro to the series you can catch up by clicking here.The Maryland YearsYou needed to see this picture twiceFrank Reich could make an argument as having been the most lucky or unlucky quarterback of all time, either title would be fitting. Unlucky to have sat most of his college career behind Boomer Esiason, unlucky to be drafted by the Buffalo Bills only to sit most of his pro career behind Jim Kelly, at the same time very lucky to have stretched his time as a backup into a 13 year professional career. Sitting for three years behind Esiason while at Maryland gave Reich an opportunity to absorb head coach Bobby Ross’ offensive system. In 1984 offenses looked a little different than they do today. In fact Bobby Ross ran a “balanced offense” out of a modified split backfield version of the wishbone. If you have questions about the wishbone offense, I suggest you go to Seymour, Indiana and ask anyone who played for the Owls between 1970 and 2005 (I have no idea if/when Seymour High School updated their offensive system, the rumor was they had always ran it and “always would” but “always would” can vanish when trying to keep pace with schools like Columbus East, right down the road). From my recollection Seymour ran it as well as any team I ever played against and a well executed wishbone was maddening to defend. As a defensive lineman every single run play looked the exact same. “Reading screws” was useless, you couldn’t predict where the ball would be on any given play, you simply tried to maintain your gap assignment and tackle the guy who actually had the ball. Remember that line in Remember the Titans where coach Herman Boone says “I run 6 plays, split veer. It’s like Novocaine. Just give it time, always works.” That was more or less Seymour’s offense and that bit about giving it time was true. It never failed, by the time the 4th quarter came around they would almost always break off at least one long run. Frank Reich’s college coach Bobby Ross famously only had 11 different runs in his playbook. Just like Novocaine. But Ross didn’t just stop with well executed misdirection, before the 1980 NFL season Ross was an assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs. In the linked article from the Washington Post, Ross said of the development of his system:The last two lines in the first paragraph will be surprising to anyone who has listened to a football coach talk in the last couple decades. He’s not sure where he got the idea to be balanced, maybe he was a time traveler, came to 2018 listened to all 28 (wink, wink) NFL head coaches post season press conference. He would have heard 28 out of 28 talk about being balanced.For 1980, the idea of balance was ahead of its time. In 2018 when a team is “balanced” it means they have a run/pass ratio close to 50/50, really anywhere near 45% run could be called balanced today. So what did balance look like to Bobby Ross in the 1980’s? Over the last 10 games of the 1983 season the Maryland Terrapins had 2,930 yards rushing and amazingly 2,930 yards passing. The run/pass ratio wasn’t quite the same. The Terrapins had 306 passing attempts and 457 rushing attempts. Sure, it’s easy to sit back and criticize the coach, those numbers break out to 9.58 yards per pass attempt compared to 6.41 yards per rush attempt. Passing resulted in more yards per attempt Cheap Joe Haeg Jersey , that’s a good thing, right? Of course, but this offense was considered progressive. It was dangerous. It was 8th in the nation with 32 points per and 6th in the nation with 446 yards per game in 1983. This offense was considered to be a “multiple-pro offense”. Ross drew acclaim for the flexibility of his offense, anyone could catch a pass, anyone could get the ball at anytime, it was balanced in more than one way. He took what he learned by studying both college and pro schemes and created a style that was uniquely his own and highly effective. This run play isn’t much different from what you would see from the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles split zone:Obviously there are major differences, namely the Terps aren’t using a zone blocking scheme, but the general idea is the same. The play is blocked to the left, the tackle pulls (in the 2018 version of the split zone this is the TE) and he works up field. It’s tough to tell if the play side TE was supposed to block the defender or release him to get to the next level, if he was supposed to release him the pulling tackle would have been responsible for kicking him out to create an outside run. The pulling tackle looked as if he had to adjust his route as Vols defender #62 does a good job containing the edge. Meanwhile the fullback goes to the backside of the play to replace the pulling tackle. He doesn’t replace the block, instead those defenders don’t know for sure he doesn’t have the ball. He freezes them just long enough that the tailback has a chance to gain yards on this play. While this isn’t a 1 to 1 to the modern split zone run, if it was designed to go to the outside, it’s very similar considering the amount of change that’s taken place in the past four decades of football innovation. Further the principals of numerical advantage, misdirection and leverage remain the same in 2018 as they were in 1982.Pass designed to go to the RB:Most pass plays saw the Terps send their backs on pass routes. On occasion they would have dummy pulls and the fullback would block while Reich would roll out looking down field. This play, isn’t that. This is a designed clear out for that running back. This is what other coaches complained about with Bobby Ross’ offense. Reich takes a 7 step drop, his receivers go deep (sorry I can’t be more specific, the 80’s didn’t have great TV angles and the replay angles were somehow worse for determining anything beyond 5-10 yards) while the other back clears out the middle for the crossing route underneath. Reich hits his back foot and it’s an easy gain. Unfortunately it was called back due to a block in the back but that’s hardly the point here. This wasn’t in any way a West Coast offense, yet they wanted to find ways to get their running backs the ball in space.It’s interesting how much of what Bobby Ross implemented in the early 1980’s that Frank Reich has spoken of implementing in 2018. No, Reich isn’t bringing back a ton of traditional splitback formations and I will personally guarantee his idea of balance isn’t a 2鈦? run/pass ratio. Rather the ideas that Ross designed his system around; a multiple, flexible, unpredictable system that would look to get everyone the ball in multiple ways. The lessons Frank Reich learned as a young man seem to have left an impression, but they hardly tell the whole story of Frank Reich’s scheme history. Nor does Bobby Ross’ heavily wishbone influenced system cover all of the principles he will draw from to establish the offense we’re going to see for our 2018 Indianapolis Colts. Next we’ll take a look at the systems that made Reich’s 13 year professional career as successful as it was.
