I think someone worded something poorly there.
On the occasions that he put a third receiver on the field, the third receiver usually
DID line up wide, but the #1 receiver lined up on the inside by the linemen and worked the middle of the field. He did have three receivers spread out wide once in a while as all teams do, but it was definitely less than average.
We always had a TE on the field. We played two TE sets sometimes. Sometimes our 6th lineman was on the field as an H-back. Our running back and tight end were #1 and #2 on the team in receptions despite Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery being here.
He didn't spread the field horizontally (or vertically) at all. This year, the offense was very much about short plays in the middle of the field. We were almost the exact opposite of a spread.
