Offensive players have spent much of the week praising the new system Reid has installed. On Thursday, after the conclusion of their three-day mini-camp, it was wide receiver Dwayne Bowe’s turn.
“It’s exactly what I dreamed,” Bowe said. “It’s only the third day but you can already imagine 40 days of everybody getting in synch. This offense is going to be up and running.
“Throwing the ball deep, that’s something we haven’t done in the past so I’m excited right now. The play calling is totally different from last year. It’s not check downs or putting it in the running back’s hands. This guy likes to go down the field, take the top off (the defense) and that’s something we haven’t done in the past, put up a lot of points. This season he said we’re going to blow out the scoreboard and that’s something I’m looking forward to.”
Not putting the ball in "the running back's hands" contradicts the belief that Reid will throw more to Jamaal Charles in the passing game, but nonetheless it's good to hear that Bowe likes the offense.
