No wondr coaches are always using the "I need to see the film" out. They really do need to see the film.
That is another reason it is very important to keep your o-line together for multiple seasons. Not only do you need to know what your assignment is, but you also need to know exactly what your linemates are thinking. It only takes one player not knowing his assignments to make the whole o-line look bad.

I'm sure every playbook around the league has some similarities.

Re: ESPN: NFL Playbooks Are Sacred

I've never understood how offenses can draw up plays without knowing how the defense is going to line up.

But then, I've never played the game on an organized level.

Case in point:

ESPN - Video games: Hasselbeck looks for an edge - NFL

Quote:
The Washington Redskins come to mind among those that vary their defensive schemes the most. "They are incredibly hard to prepare for," Hasselbeck said, "and yet, if you do the work and you do prepare for them, because they are aggressive in their blitz schemes, there are opportunities."

That's the great part about it. It's truly a chess match from both sides.

You never played high school ball Beems?

The second one with his daughters is pretty funny.

*Be careful, if you leave the videos running to long you're forced to be subjected to hippies (drug smokers) protesting at the RNC. Just a heads up.

Nope. I would have had to maintain at least a "C" average in order to participate in after-school activities -- which meant I was hopelessly out of contention.
