The Penn State Offense Can Be Dynamic
I think a lot of people, especially those observing PSU from afar expect the Lions offense to take a step back from the efficiency they showed last season. It’s easy to see why, when you graduate a quarterback that was as good as Matt McGloin was for much of last season. However, while Bill O’Brien will need to settle on a new signal caller, whoever gets the nod has plenty of weapons. At running back, Akeel Lynch was the star of the offensive side on Saturday, and he could very well be 3rd string behind Zach Zwinak, and Bill Belton. PSU’s 2nd tight end, Jesse James was the preferred passing target by both Bench and Ferguson, but neither Kyle Carter nor Adam Breneman even played. Allen Robinson did not play much, but you saw him utilized on a reverse, and I expect O’Brien to find ways to get him the ball outside of the passing game. In short, PSU still has plenty of play makers, and a coach not afraid to think outside the box to utilize them.
