Trent Edwards + C.J. Spiller = West Coast Offense?

Captain Checkdown failed in the no-huddle last year, and never really got a chance to recover midway through the season after the coaching switch. His play was his own fault, but he certainly was working at a great disadvantage (NFL's rawest O-line, bad coaching and play-calling, his own  inexperience, etc.)

I think Trent can make a comeback. He is still a young'un, and great quarterbacks finding their stride after several mediocre seasons is not unprecedented in the NFL. I think we can play to his strengths (accuracy, quick decisions, um...checkdowns) and our other offensive strengths (Spiller, Jackson, Evans) with something like a West Coast Offense. For this to work, we need Trent to play like he once did, as well as another horizontal receiving threat. My money is on one of our young players (Nelson, Johnson, Hardy, Easley) to step up and BE that horizontal receiving threat. The potential is there with all of them, so the odds are good.  We can use our deep well of running backs to keep those linebackers close and on-edge, and screen passes to C.J. Spiller could eat up a blitz. The quick timing of the offensive system should suit our raw-but-athletic offensive line as well. It's a bit of a gamble, but I feel it has more chance of succeeding than the WTF approach Jauron used last year.  Thoughts?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
