There has been a lot of excitement this offseason about Klint Kubiak joining the New Orleans Saints as offensive coordinator. The excitement stemmed from Kubiak’s resume, primarily his most recent experience with the San Francisco 49ers. However, Saints players have fueled the excitement with every answer they’ve given about Kubiak and the new offense.

The most recent example of that came from Saints running back Jamaal Williams, and he may have given the strongest endorsement yet. In an appearance on NFL Network’s The Insiders, Williams was asked what the offense will look like under Kubiak, and the excitement jumped out of Williams before the question was even finished.

What followed was a true Jamaal Williams moment. Bubbling with excitement, Williams frantically explained that he remembers a game where he was standing on the sideline, watching running back Raheem Mostert run all over his defense. Williams said that at the time, he was just curious why Mostert was going crazy like he was. He now knows the answer: the scheme he was in, which is the same scheme Kubiak has brought to New Orleans. Williams is excited for his turn in the offense.

Williams has played in five games against Mostert, including a playoff game in 2020 when Mostert rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns, leading the 49ers to a 37-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Kubiak wasn’t with San Francisco then, but the scheme was. It’s the same scheme that still has Mostert excelling with the Miami Dolphins, and the scheme that has Christian McCaffrey on the cover of Madden 25.

It’a the Shanahan scheme that many of the league’s explosive offenses use. The offense contains plenty of pre- and post-snap movement, and when it’s working as designed, all the movement leads to wide open run lanes, or wide open pass catchers. Apparently, Williams and the Saints have already got a taste of that, and are excited to see the success in actual regular season games.
