You know, the REAL West Coast Offense. The Coryell Offense is really called the West Coast Offense. The 49ers offense back in the '80s was really called "The Walsh Offense" or Cincinnati Offense. Sure you can say, "Well, the 49ers deserve that name because they won five Super bowls," but because of a misinformed article, everyone thinks it's that offense. It's not, and you're closed-minded if you still think that.
The West Coast Offense performs at a Pro Formation, using two wide-outs, one tight-end, one running back, and one full back. The offense is suppose to be balanced by using intermediate and deep passes that complements the power running game. The West Coast Offense revolves around the power running game, not the deep passing game. Nobody runs that better in this league than Norv Turner, even better than Mike Martz. It's more quarterback friendly than the other west coast offenses such as Martz's Greatest Show on Turf.
Does anyone remember who originally brought the West Coast Offense? A coach named Sid Gillman and his apprentice Don Coryell. It originated in a small Division II College in Western Mississippi State, I assume. Anyone who watched the Chargers played 25-to-35 years ago remembers that the offense was God-like. How about Dan Fouts throwing 4,800 yards in 16 games without strict rules for defenses like today? Watch some highlights of the glory days if you want to see the REAL West Coast Offense.
Oh, by the way, does anyone notice that we changed our uniforms since Norv Turner came here? Franchise income has skyrocketedm as well as advertising, and the uniforms are nice too. They're better than the uniforms Schottenheimer had back then. But that's history now, and how about the 1970s throwback uniforms?
