NE, GB, NO, Denver, Atlanta, Reid, Detroit, all use base AR principles in their play designs in both base and varied personnel. For example, plenty of teams I mentioned run "Mesh" and AR staple out of both base and other personnel. The Pats additionally, love to use the hitch/seam concept with is an airraid staple as well. The AirRaid isn't a gimmick and plenty of teams are using its concepts in the NFL. FFS, I made a huge post about the ****ing levels concept with Geno earlier. Am I really going to have to ****ing bump that?
Futhermore, teams are deliberately incorporating limited-playbook offenses (ie. the read option run) to help young QBs adjust quickly.
I was watching (or reading, I can't remember) a thing the other day where they charted EVERY ONE of RG3's throws last year. About 80% of them were 1-read and go. He actually progressed to his 2nd read about 10% of the time. You could literally count the plays with 3 reads or more on 1 hand.
