If you aren't going to utilize a west coast scheme, however, I think you'd struggle pretty mightily w/ Wilson as your QB.
Totally. Wilson in Norv's scheme would be hilarious, IMO.
I do think that when you evaluate QBs, you take into consideration what kind of philosophies might highlight their strengths and hide their weaknesses. Ideally, you have a QB you can throw into any scheme and they'll produce but that is pretty rare, IMO.
Example, if the Chiefs were to hire Gruden, I wouldn't be as upset with Barkley as our pick as if Saunders was running the O.
Another example would be Flacco being a great fit for Cameron's Coryell O.
We do not choose our destinies. Yet we must...we must do our duty, no? Great or small, we must do our duty.
