Writing off the Urban Meyer offense after three games?
At this point some are trying to justify their fears by piling on early. Thing is, take a look at how these types of offenses evolve and strengthen over time. It took Norm Chow nearly two seasons at talented USC to really have that thing in superpower mode. Meyer's Utah teams needed a little over a season. Jeff Tedford took about two seasons to really have his offense performing like the machine it is now. Bobby Petrino needed about a year.
Basically, Florida's running a shell offense, and it was clear from the way they approached (and won) the game against Tennessee they're nursing the offense along, relying on the more traditional approach to win games (special teams, defense) until they can get up to speed. Additionally, Chris Leak not a good fit for what they're doing, so its very likely that the Utah-type performances may not consistently arrive until someone like Josh Portis is lining up behind center.
I felt last night's win was good for the gators, and shows that they're a very dynamic club, capable of winning not just with the great offense, but other ways when the offense isn't all there. When football teams can win in ways beyond their traditional route (say, Ohio State blowing a major opponent out instead of the traditional ball control, 24-21 type win), that's a great sign of their development. Last night showed that, and its just another reason to respect and worry about Urban Meyer's Florida Gators.
