it’s incredibly common for teams to simplify the offense to the point of scripting reads when handed a rookie QB
panthers have tried to put the full responsibility of the position on Young from the outset. It’s an old system with lots of tenured NFL ideas and *probably* the old, long winded parlance to convey those concepts.
If you’re going to develop a QB in the traditional manner, you need to be mindful of developing him the in traditional timeframe. once it became clear that Bryce was still just a rookie QB regardless of how pro style Alabama’s offense is, they’ve spent the season trying to roll back little by little.
also I’m curious if the ideological conflict between Brown and Reich has led to wasted practice time on having to navigate how concepts or verbiage translate to each other and thus who you’re teaching. It isn’t just Bryce that has been confused on assignments. We all assumed they came into the season as a unified front with a unified system but it’s clear that isn’t the case.
perhaps the biggest problem with the passing game is that the QB is thinking, not playing, while the interior offensive line is getting blasted at the snap.
of course the antiquated route combos haven’t helped-LOL at the triple digs they ran on 3rd and 10 vs TB
