Unfortunately they have to go against the Colts this week, but their quick passing scheme seemed to work against Seattle last week. They were moving the ball pretty well during some drives. Now, there were costly penalties and mistakes that you can't do, but otherwise they looked pretty good (despite the fact that they lost).
This new system does exactly what they need to do--not rely on the O-line. Put the defense back on their heels a little bit hoping they don't get burned by a quick slant route for big yardage. That in turn will allow more running room for DD and even a couple of passes into the flat where he can really do some damage.
These guys aren't going to be zeroed out for the year. Besides, has any team ever lost *every* game?
I think the Bucs were the last to have that dubious honor, but that was back in the 14-game regular season.
