Taxing, in the sense that it takes more time for the Oline to block the play. This is a fact.
Is it really that much more taxing than a QB snapping the ball taking three steps and handing the ball off.
If the QB is making his reads properly and quickly it shouldn't be longer than handing the ball off from under center. At the very least not so much longer that it is abnormally taxing on an O-linemen.
Has anyone actually done a comprehensive study on the time difference between the two?? Is there something besides opinion on that. Not attacking you, but you said it was a fact so I was wondering if there was something on this to prove it. You may be right. Just asking.
