Spread offense QB's in the NFL

43 posts in this topic

The audio cuts off a number of seconds into the play clock. I think it's 15 seconds to go, it goes silent, but I can't recall exactly.

Most D's don't really show their hands until late in the play clock now as well.

I am not sure if it is 15 or 20 seconds but you are right, the audio cuts off by the time the QB is at the line changing the play and calling out audibles.

Can QB's that come from spread offenses transition well into the NFL? Absolutely.

The issue is that you don't have good tape on them doing these things prior to drafting them. You are taking more risk that a QB from a pro style offense.

I stopped reading the article when they started talking about john fox's opinions about QBs and the passing game in general.

But it shouldn't matter that much to him if he prefers to run his worst running play instead of his best passing play lol

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.

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.

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.
