McCoy and his offensive staff will probably game plan based on scouting to decide how to focus the rushing attack in a given game to attack perceived weaknesses and maximize what they think they can do against the opponent.

Personally, I think it's easier to take a good angle blocker and teach him some zone steps rather than the other way around. If a team wants to physically challenge a defensive front and smack them in the mouth, an angle blocked rushing attack is the way to do it. Angle blocked rushing attacks better facilitate play-action and influence, too.
We'll just have to wait and see what it looks like on the field. When McCoy switched the offense in mid-season 2011, I charted the plays just to figure out exactly what was happening, especially in the rushing attack. I think I might do that again this year. It's time consuming, but gives the clearest possible picture of what the offense actually is.
