I'm not sure where the comparisons to the patriots offense is coming from. Their offense is probably one of the most complex in the nfl. Tons of option routes etc. requires smart receivers ( why chad Johnson was a failure). I don't think we want that type of offense. We want to play to flaccos strengths. He still has the best most accurate deep balls except maybe Rodgers.
Maybe, just maybe, the Patriots are being brought up to compare their ratio of runs to passes to ours... I think that's even what we wrote (or at least implied) in our posts. The Patriots are routinely the most balanced offense in the NFL.
Also, they have a lot of west coast passing, play action, and zone running which is going to be a part of our offense this year, so that comparison is there too.
