  1. So predictable that Shanny abandoned the No Huddle right after it worked.
  2. I'm not relying on DLed. And you're missing the point. You said Ryan only couldn't audible on 20% of the total plays (the half of the runs that Shanahan says he can't.) I said that's not actually correct because presumably Ryan also can't audible on some unknown percentage of the pass plays as well. We just don't know what percentage (of the 60% of pass plays) that is. So, for example, if Ryan was generously allowed an audible on 75% of the pass plays, that would still mean he couldn't audible on 25%. 25% of 60% is 15%. Which would mean Ryan could not audible on 3
  3. That's correct. You said Ryan couldn't audible for only 20% of the plays, which I take to mean total plays (50% of the 40%). If that was true, he then would have to be able to audible on any pass play (the remaining 60% of the plays). As you said, we don't know what Shanahan's policy on that is. Consequently, we don't know exactly what percentage of plays above 20% (the runs) that Ryan can audible. Since Shanahan already limits 50% of the run plays, I think it's a solid educated guess that a 50% limit on pass plays is in the ballpark.
  4. This is also untrue. It presumes Ryan could audible on all the pass plays. Presumably, if Shanahan also limits audibling on pass plays as well, we just don't know how much. Some have thought it was reasonable inference that the same 50% ratio on run plays carries over to pass. Others have said this is an unreasonable inference.
  5. I don't think it's that unreasonable an inference that Shanahan uses roughly the same ratio of pass plays that Ryan can't change at the line. But as I said, we don't actually know, and we'll just have to wait for more clarity on that. Somehow, I think we'll be getting it this season.
  6. What he says in the quote is we ran No Huddle in 3 games. The article is from the bye week of that season, which means 3 times in 9 games. And as the writer points out, all three times were in "traditional hurry up situations." So basically he only ran it when everyone in the league runs it -- in clock situations. Anyway, I think it's fair to say a guy who runs No Huddle 3 times in 9 games is not a fan of No Huddle, and that No Huddle is only a minor component of the offense at best. By contrast, I would guess under Koetter we never went a single game when we didn't run it at
  7. As to the No Huddle, I think Shanahan's own words are a little telling: Q: Can you run more no huddle? Do y’all want to run more no-huddle? A: That’s something that we think about every week. That’s something that we think about every quarter. Every time in the game. It’s part of our offense. We’ve run it this year. I don’t know if people have noticed. We’ve done it in probably three of the games. We think if it gives us an advantage, we’ll do it. But we don’t just say hey, let’s go no-huddle because we hear you guys telling us too. I don’t hear you, but my wife hears you. (The Fal
  8. In the video, Shanahan is only talking specifically about run plays. About which Ryan can audible half the time. Shanahan makes no statement whatsoever about pass plays. So it's a little disingenuous to assume Ryan has full autonomy to check out of a pass into a run 100% of the time. My inference is that Ryan would have about the same 50% latitude to check pass to run based on the same logic -- Sometimes Shanahan wants a pass for strategic reasons and Ryan can't check into a run on those plays. Since the reporter didn't press the issue, we'll never completely know. But I fi

  10. According to Shanahan, Ryan cannot audible in at least half the plays. It is not disputed that Ryan has far less audible power than he did under the previous 2 OC's. Nor does Shanahan dispute that we basically don't run No Huddle. The argument is that Ryan is not the type of QB that you take audible powers away from, because it detracts from his strengths. And that he's better suited with a healthy portion of No Huddle, which we've all seen works very well with his skill set. You could convince me that taking audible power/No Huddle away from QB's like Schaub, RG3, etc. would
  11. I understand your opinion. I think Wor is going to surprise this year in his second season under Quinn and change conventional opinions of his supposed limitations (not that people on this board won't magnify his every mistake and cry for Jones every game even if it's completely unwarranted.) As I keep saying, we'll see what happens.
  12. Not a good argument. Every player has good games and bad games. Except Jones. He has no games.
  13. Ok. I think he'll start and stay the starter all year. We'll see what happens.
  14. Only games matter. But I'll wait until I see him on the field in real games before I proclaim he's more talented.
