was the change in complexity.

The "previous" offense had fewer sets and fewer calls leading to simpler verbiage, but it relied on guys all making the same read at the line and coming off the ball.

IN spring practice, there was a lot of talk about how much more complex the playbook was. This was from more sets and bigger verbiage. It was a lot to memorize. BUT, it resulted in fewer reads at the line.

I think we can agree that we've seen several times in Lock's tenure where he and the receivers were not on the same page. This has to be partly due to them not making the same read. Supposedly, that has been taken away...at least somewhat.


So, in the past, they said that understanding/remembering the call was very simple but it required multiple if/then decisions by the players and on some level you had to home they made the same decision.

Now, the play call and alignment is much more complex, but once you have it, what you do on the play is much more definitive.

Personally, I think it's easier to memorize the calls in the classroom than it is to have multiple reads coming out the same way during the play.

And to clarify, I don't know first hand that this is what's going on. That's just how it was reported in the spring and me explaining it.
