It really boils down to how good of a QB coach you have. Last year we had the browns packaged in blue and sliver.

Basically and the natural talent of that QB prospect imo.

even still after watching tape, coaches could tell their qb what to look for in situations especially in different downs and what to expect. coverage and blitz than the qb could know what to expect or look for.

Being told what to look for vs.and being able to read the defense, make the right decision, and execute it in a matter of seconds are two completely different things.

Gotta add the dedication and work ethic of the QB as well. Are they willing to work their ass off and spend countless hours in the film room?

it is, but after you are told what to look for you should be able to make that read a lot faster.again in certain situations you should expect somethings and the 15 seconds coaches should and more inlikey do tell their qb what to expect.

I know a lot of people say the game is played under center.....

but when Tom Brady went postal on the NFL in 2007.....he seemed to operate heavily from the shotgun. I'd like to know his percentage in the shotgun vs. the league the past few years.

I mean, I would bet over the past 5 years....Indy and NE probably operate out of the shotgun at a higher % than all other NFL teams. If they aren't the top 2 teams they would be close.

There is not enough time to consider down and distance, defensive personnel on the field, come up with a play and repeat it twice to your QB if you are trying to tell a QB what to look for out of the D.

It's the QB's responsibility to recognize what is going on from film study. There is already enough on the OC without having to hand hold the QB.

down and distance, defensive personnel is considered when calling a play.thats part of why OC sit up in the box.i know it's the qbs responsibility but it does not take 15 seconds to call a play. more than likely he would call the play, and tell him what to look for.(defensive scheme, personnel, or maybe a read.)

now after that the defense will switch and it's up to the qb to be able to adjust accordingly.

Manning and Brady don't have to play fake to make you respect the run, and slow down the D a bit. Every D in the league respects those two, and even when they know it's a pass (shotgun) have to be careful with blitzs.

No one really respects the run though of those teams. They run when teams almost force them to run making it look like a gimmee. I think those teams have great QBs but in addition I think those teams have adapted to the way the league has changed.....they simply spread teams out more like you see in college as part of there base offenses. They both do it different but both have really gone heavy in that aspect lately.

You could include Cassel's 2008 season. They were shotgun heavy then as well.

He did alot of shotgun because the Patriots did not have a running game that year.

Put our QB in the shotgun too often and you take away the running game....the strongest aspect of our team.
