What you're finally seeing is normal spacing. We've been playing in a compressed 20 yard box for the last 5 years. The fact that we've still consistently demolished the regular season while playing like this is simply astounding and a testament to the quality of our o-line and Kamara. If you watch other teams play, they consistently hit what look to be ridiculously easy 20-30 yard completions and we sit there with our hands up asking What the Fork! because we never get those easy yards. Once the safeties actually have to stay on top of the receivers and the LB have to stay in close to prevent Kamara then the entire intermediary zone of come backs, in routes, drags etc become easy.
Well said, as great as Drew was he was holding the offense back to some degree, in some ways. The talent on the O-line and Kamara definitely helped. If You don't put as much emphasis on the oline starting in 2016 + land Kamara even with Drew that offense isn't as good.
