    Great White North Offense!!!!!!

    I HATE the fact that everyone calls it, the "West Coast Offense"!!!!!!!
    Does anyone remember the style that WE had back when Ricky Young led the league in receptions??
    Also, teamed with Ted Brown, who was also a gol 'darnit good pass catcher too!!
    Then, add the likes of a Joe Senser to the mix?? Then at WR, we had #85 Sammy White, and #28 Ahmad Rashad!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IMO, and always in my thoughts, it's known as the "Great White North" Offense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    So, RIP Bill, but you were never the orchestrator of that style of offense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry Singer, but I just had to repost my verbiage as a new topic for the younger guys.......

    The WCO is the baseline that has variations thrown into the mix.
    I guess at some point it should be called something else, but the WCO is the closest correct terminology and it sure looks to me like they are running that type of offense with some variations.....like most teams do that claim to run the WCO.
    I think we're stuck with that term until the KAO takes hold in NFL circles.

    This wasn't the very first article he stated it in, the first was in an article on Vikings.com, but here's the quote. & the link from the same period of time;

    "I know it's a kick-ass offense when it's executed properly," Childress said. "It's been done with all different levels of people and personnel. But I'm not shaken. It's a multiple system that you can run in just as easily as you can throw it, and we need to become better at it. That's my job."

    It won't be known as the KAO, until we get the ball in the dang gum endzone with a higher frequency. 10 offensive points won't get it done. I'm looking for improvement this week against the lions. We need 3-4 touchdowns a week on offense. Then it might be considered a KAO.
