This isn't about Cam or Charlie, it's about those two plays

You think the TE was the 3rd read on that play? Watch it a time or two more all the way until the video ends. This intrigues me a whole bunch

Are you serious? You made a poll about this?

LOL.

And so far about half the people say the Auburn play could be a 2nd or 3rd read.

C'mon man.

Newton makes two reads to the right (one while avoiding a rush) while on the move, then sets up and reads to the left to find the TE.

Whitehurst was only thinking about Williams the entire time. Both reads he makes are in Williams' direction.

Yeah, that's how I see it.

You are two of those votes (lol) and Jangler, who voted for every one, is the other 2, leaving only one person.

I'm just trying to get a sense of the Huddle and their offensive knowledge/philosophies.

I'm just curious... what is the significance of this?

TheRealdeal is trying to prove his football knowledge epeen is bigger than mine.

Kinda pathetic really.

Keep in mind in the Cam Newton play, the TE pretends to block as Cam pretends to roll right then sneaks out left.

There were only 2 receivers in the pattern. The receiver on the left going right could be a legitimate attempt to get open or a purposeful misdirection to flow the action and receiver one direction and throwing back across the pattern to the TE. If it had been misdirection only he should have pumped it to the receiver to sell it then threw it back across the field.

I genuinely want to get a gauge on the knowledge the huddle has of offense and offensive philosophy.

I was under the assumption that anyone who has played football at any level from ages 8 and upward knows what the purpose of these plays are.

If I'm wrong and not everyone knows that, I have to dummy down my posting and arguments to relate better to the Huddle masses.

1st video with the TE.. I would assume the TE is his main read.. he didn't have time to go through any reads and his 1st reaction was to go to the TE..

and Playbook on NFL network broke down the Charlie Whitehurst play... the play was designed for Mike Williams to be wide open with the rollout to the right.. the defense was so focused on the right side that Williams is easily able to slip coverage.. I'm going with Williams was the 1st read there since Whitehurst stares him down.. the receiver on the right was going to be covered like hell with 3 guys right near him.. I find it hard to believe that guy was a legitimate read..

Williams would be his first read. The design of the play is to look off the safeties right, and throw across the formation.

The Cam Newton one would be hard to say. Looked like he was trying to evade the rushers and just looked up and found an open target.

Honestly, i AGREE with this. the Whitehurst throw was to WR (he's not a TE) Mike Williams and he's usually his go to guy. Newton looked like he was going to throw to the right, couldnt find a guy, then wanted to run, couldnt find a lane then looked up and saw his tight end open.
