Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

I think there should be a distinction between the Denver WCO w/ Mike Shanahan calling the plays and the Denver WCO (Houston variant) w/ Kyle Shanahan calling the plays.

E.g-

Mike has been close to a 50/50 pass/run ratio vs Kyle w/ a 60/40 pass/run ratio

Mike has had several different types of QBs at the helm most of whom have been mobile, some of which have had big time arms

Kyle has had a QB w/ average to below average mobility in Schaub/Grossman and average arm strength

Mike's offense features a lot of action passess (sprint, dash, bootleg, etc) well defined reads, often half-field reads which makes it easier for a QB to execute

Kyle's offense features more straight drop back passing with the emphasis on QB decision making

so basically KS/MS won't work?

Sure it will work, my point is that when people say 'player X is a perfect for the Shanahan's scheme' it may or may not be true depending on how that person views the Shanahan scheme or offense do they view it as Mike's or Kyle's?

E.g:

If you were picking the ideal QB for Mike Shanahan's playcalling Matt Schaub probably doesn't have the ideal skillset but is very productive under Kyle's playcalling.

Imo the running game is of much greater importance under Mike Shanahan's playcalling because of his emphasis on the ground game and balance whereas the running game isn't a major point of emphasis for Kyle. (at least thus far)

Reports that Von Miller just ran a 4.49 at A&M's Pro Day. Hello, Top 5.
