Interesting Comment on Sparano's O (McElroy)
“It’s a difficult system but it’s very similar to what we did last year in terms of reads and concepts,” he said. “We’re running the same plays but with different verbiage.” -McElroy
Is the fan base in general, aware of the parallels that are drawn from the two systems (Sparano, Schotty)? Or were we expecting an entirely new system?
I feel almost mislead perhaps by the fact that the picture that was drawn was in reality, a horse, as opposed to the sketched chicken.
So if they're "running the same plays but with different verbiage", what can we expect to be different? Is it all about situation coupled with the potentially countless nuances of each offensive system? I was taken back a bit when I read this, and actually left me a tad uncomfortable. What are your reactions?
