Greg McElroy Says that Offense is Less Wordy

Greg added an interesting note about how the quarterbacks must go about learning the Sparano system:

You see it inside out, and that’s the only way to do it. From the front back, and inside out, that’s the best way to do it. Last year there were more concrete rules, as far as maybe a certain protection, that’s what we do; a certain defense, this is the way we want to protect it; a blitz look, this is the way we want to protect it. This year it can be anything at all different times. We can change the line call, we can change a “Mike” point, we can change the route. It’s a lot of freedom from the quarterback’s perspective, and it has been really helpful.

McElroy is a very intelligent young man, so his perspective makes for a very interesting read.

As far as his observations are concerned, it’s encouraging that the QBs have to know the system inside and out. No offense to most other players, but the QBs are typically the smartest guys on the squad, so them giving the direction and knowing the offense the best clearly makes sense.

Whether it is simpler or not, I still say that nobody was complaining when they were winning, but if they find it easier, that works for me.
