Greg McElroy is going into his second season as third string quarterback with the New York Jets. Not only is it his second year, it is Greg’s second offensive coordinator he has worked with. He talked about the differences between Sparano and Schottenheimer’s offense in his Q and A with Jenny Vrentas:

You can get in and out of the huddle faster. I think a big part of what Coach Sparano is wanting to do is increase tempo and run more plays, so maybe by having less words, then it really helps as far as getting out of the huddle. Last year, we might tag eight different routes, there’s six or seven different guys on things in the play call, where it would just get a little wordy at times. It’s just a lot easier getting in and out of the huddle and everybody knowing what to do. … We have just as many plays if not more, but as far as the amount of words that are said in the huddle, it is significantly less.
