I only caught part of it (poor reception) but I was DEFINITELY happy with the part I heard.

He said they're working to use a wristband so he has alot more plays to choose from in impromptu situations like the 2-minute drill...

I thought usually backups and rookies used those until they get the playbook down...

That should be interesting. The wristband might help so he doesn't forget a possible play and has them all right in front of him.

On the other hand, now Shanahan will hire an Ivy League grad who can knock Trent down and memorize the wristband in 3.2 seconds, rendering our offense useless.

He said that he only had a handful of plays that he memorized before every game in case he needed them.

He said the wristband would greatly expand the number of adhoc plays they could call.

He also said he's had a considerable amount of conversation with Shea and Solari and yes - they're asking for his opinion.

I think this is GREAT news. It sounds like they're actually going to open the offense up a bit.

What are adhoc plays?

I bet some day the entire team will have a little visor that displays all the plays like in Madden, and all the OC or QB has to do is put in a play on their's and all the players see it and what their blocking assignment/route is etc. That would be cool.

This is great news but tk13 made me laugh out loud.

Giving Trent the flexibility to make his own calls at the line is one of the best things Herm has done thus far.

Maybe they could have robots instead of players too. :(

Sounds like Herm's gonna give the guys that have made our O successful a little breathing room. Let 'em keep on keepin' on.

I've always thought that taking playcalling away from the QB hurt the game, and your team..no one knows what works better than the guy on the field, well, except for shortbus QB's like Plummint, who need a leash to succeed.

I agree with both of you.

If anybody can take command of this offense, it's Trent and Willie and Will. Let them go...I think this offense might be able to get BETTER...

I'd think it'd be easier to read, if he just drew the Audibles on Shields', Waters', and Weigeman's glutes. The RBs could See them too.

With them working on getting calls in to Trent quicker, he will have time to make those adjustments if he sees a different defensive allignment. I'll be interested in seeing this O perform.

There comes a moment in each off season when I reach the next level of anticipation for a new season,after reading that,I'm there.

Exactly right. Wasn't it the Eagles game, i believe it was that game, that INT that Trent threw, that he could not audible?

I agree with Parker.

This is definitely a good thing. Just another example why Al Saunders wasn't god's gift to football.

I agree gonna be nice to get Trent to the line quicker. Hopefully he won't point and and do a lil dance number like Manning.

I'd like to see Trent as a QB coach here after his playing days are done. He seems like a guy who would have good potential to rise in the coaching ranks too.

Trent has shitloads of money. Why would he bust ass as an assistant coach?

Assuming of course Roaf stays healthy...

I don't know why everybody is so excited. All the wristband plays will be variations on "run up the middle".

I'd rather see him with a wireless receiver that goes directly to Washington to a guy named Al... :deevee:

U dumbass. It's not always all about the money with these guys. Some really love the game. Yeah, the money helps a lot, but some guys really wanna stay in the game and go into coaching. It wouldn't be the first time that a former player became a coach.

I'd bet that Mike Singletary made a pretty fair sum of money.

He retired before free agency. I bet he didn't make more than he's making now as an assistant coach.

Trent's working towards a studio job (anybody watch ESPN draft coverage the last couple of years?). He'll never coach.

And gochiefs point is valid; not many highly-paid, all pro calibre players become coaches. That's just reality.

That's good news. That should limit their turnovers quite a bit next season. If he picks of a blitz, or something else in the D that their not prepared for, he can change the play rather that be stuck with the one their on and make a bad throw or get sacked/lose a fumble. I think this is especially important if we have a young FB next season, as he might not be able to adjust quickly enough mid play..

I have no problem with Green calling more plays.

This is a Good Thing.
