Let's take a look back at the first three weeks of the preseason.
Weeks 1 and 2 saw very limited gameplanning from the Wampas as coaches just wanted to see how players performed. Overall, the coaches were pleased and are expecting good things from this team. Yes, both games were losses, but they were very close and this is preseason.
Week 3 was a little different. There was still very limited gameplanning, especially on defense, but the offense definitely had a plan: pass, pass, pass. No, really, that's all they did. There wasn't a single running play (except 2 kneel downs). This plan worked extremely well, especially with the starters in the first half. QB Kenneth Gonzalez
went 14 of 21 for 326 yards, 0 INTs, and 3 TDs while being sacked 4 times, all in the first half. That's good enough for a 149.31 rating. TEs John Hurst
and Eric Lokken
were stars in the receiving game. Hurst caught 6 balls for 152 yards and 2 TDs. Lokken had 7 receptions for 90 yards. It should be fun to see what this means for the future.
What will the Wampas do in preseason week 4? Have they decided to be a pass-heavy offense? Will they run the ball at all? Will they try a run-heavy plan or a run-only plan? ... I suppose we'll just have to watch to find out.
