Saints hope Brooks will flourish in the simple life

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't think the scheme is getting simpler -- its the method of calling the plays from the sideline -- now the plays are called into the huddle as a number and Brooks has a cheatsheet to turn that into ...

This is accurate. Same format they used for Young in SF as I recall. I really liked this article, but then what fun is it without blanket statements and conspiracy theories?
Was that Youngs first year ???

I think reading into the 1, 2 read thing. The problem in the past if you watch some games from last year you see Brooks drop back and with out a 1, 2 read he looks for best bet on who to throw to and then goes back into looking down the field taking time to make the call to pass. When they talk 1, 2 read its just that... You look for the 1 route then the second and dump off to the saftey route. When you read 1, 2 in an article don't assume there are only going to be 2 routes to go to it means check off then run or get rid of ball. Its not reducing the number of reads its just a system to check off... 1,2 read is the system I mean come on there isn't a 1, 2, 3, 4 read system.

The major issue is simplyfying the terminology for a play... shortens the time the play gets to the field and shortens the time for the O to get to the line and read the Defense. Last year you see Brooks getting to the line and not being able to make reads and set the blocking.

A QB never makes 4 reads before looking to run or for an outlet? Never? I'm pretty sure that I have read before that they are reducing the number of reads down to 2 and then telling AB to look for an outlet if they're covered. What are they reducing it down from if there isn't such a thing as a 3 or 4 read system?

Why did I hear a funeral march as I read that?
The better question would be why do you hear it everytime AB's name is mentioned. Call your local psychologist, dude.

Was that Youngs first year ???
Is this relevant or just a way of making yet another negative comment about AB's intelligence or lack thereof? Maybe, if they'd have done this AB's first year like they did (assuming they did) in Young's first year, we'd have made the playoffs in the last 4 years.

You know what I hear everytime I hear Ab's name? Sometimes I hear circus music so you are wrong. I guess I should be more respectful of such a great QB, what am I thinking? He has given me no reason whatsoever not to be 100% supportive of him. Thanks for showing me the light Scotty.

Why do people change things are read into posts that aren't there... I have never used the word never. Its not reducing the reads its making them simple its indication that on this play the first route you look for is this one... if not then go to this one... if not go here. 2 recievers then lets start cutting all the WR's in camp. 1 2 read... the way you describe it if we use 4 wr set then only but all the DBs on Horn and Stallworth to hell with everyone else.

Well, Euph, you said there is not a 1,2,3,4 read system. I'm taking IS NOT as never done because it doesn't exist according to you. You don't have to use the word to use it's meaning...but this is off topic.

I take a 3 read play to mean that immediately following the snap there is player 1 to check. If P1 is covered, then check P2. If P2 is covered, then check P3. If P3 is covered, then find an outlet.

P1 will not always be Horn or Stallworth. It could be a TE or RB depending on the play.

Thus, rather than making him go through 3 or 4 progressions before deciding to run or dump off, they are limiting this to 2. That seems to me to one simplification of the process. There are others that they have installed.

I have never been a QB on a team so explain to me where I am wrong in my "guessing" about how this works.
