Offensive strategy

What strategy?

I was thinking about the sad state of our offense, especially the wr's, when I thought of something to give us maybe a little optimism.  Not saying we're gonna roll, but maybe achieve mediocrity!

Our strength on offense is obviously our tight ends.  We have 3 capable of making plays.  Tight ends need some room in the middle of the field to be really effective.  In order to achieve this, I'm thinking we are going to see a steady stream of wr's going deep.  We have a wr by committee thing going on, and most of these guys can run.  Booker cannot obviously.  By rotating guys in and out, we won't see tired legs so much.  Randy Moss dogs it, so don't think other wr's out there don't dog it when their decoy fly pattern is called.  We have 5 #3 receivers, so any dogging will lead one to the bench I imagine.  

Also, the cover 2 scheme is quite popular throughout the league.  When a receiver goes deep a safety will be vacated from covering the deep middle, thus creating some space for the TE.  Most teams don't have an Urlacher that can effectively and consistently cover the deep middle.   For other defensive schemes, teams are still loathe to give up big plays.   Any wr going deep will probably encounter safety help, thus creating room as well.

Of course all this is moot, if Orton is on his butt every time he drops back.  Or if the line can't make any holes for Forte and Jones to find.   But, I was looking for something/anything to grasp on to as a sign of hope.
