The Texas A&M Football offense may rely heavily on the run game
It’s hard to figure out how Jimbo Fisher is going to handle the overhaul of the Aggies’ offensive line. One could make the argument that they’ll shift to a pass-first offense to take pressure off of the defense.
That said, it’s hard to see them putting a first-year quarterback in a situation where he has to do the heavy lifting. In fact, I believe that the offensive staff would lean toward letting their veteran runningbacks carry the load, while the young quarterback figures things out.
The real worrisome stretch of time for this team will come in the first few games, where the Aggies will face Kent State, Colorado, and New Mexico. That said, the Aggies newcomers on the offensive line should have no problems against teams with less talent.
I don’t think that Jimbo Fisher will shy away from running the ball straight at the first few teams on the Aggies schedule. In fact, I think the runningbacks will carry the load for this team until they play some real threatening competition.
That said, Devon Achane will be given more of an opportunity to run the football. In the event of a blowout, which is very likely early in the year, Achane will be given a bulk of the rushes to prevent Isaiah Spiller from being injured early in the year.
