Somebody please fill in the gap for me since I am not exactly sure what to think. One of the constantly repeated comments from the coaching staff is the need for player (fill in the blank) to learn the offense. My question arises from wondering if our coaches are perfectionists regarding their views or the players really struggle to grasp the offense. Maybe the truth is in the middle. I don't know.
However, I then contrast this with reports of our RB's progression. RB should be the easiest position for transition and early contribution regardless of system. This is based on the commonly accepted view that freshmen RBs in college or rookie RBs in the NFL are most ready to play right away out of all position groups. With that being said, why are our RBs making mistakes in the offense worth noting (beyond missing a blitz pick up or something)? Fitz, Cox and Shaw have seen this for 2-3 years already. I am a bit confused by the reports coming out of spring practice.
