An interesting perspective below from a team that is well-known for it's own "downhill rushing offense".
From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
Wisconsin DC Dave Doeren:
"You see a more true downhill running game when Denard is the quarterback," UW defensive coordinator Dave Doeren said. "They do the same zone read with both of them.
"But Denard will get the ball in the shotgun and they've got two lead blockers plus the O-line and he makes things go.
"Forcier is an accomplished passer. I'm not saying Denard can't throw. But I'm saying there are going to be more route concepts you're probably defending when Forcier comes in the game.
"There are just more drop-back throws. With Denard there are more play-action, sprint-outs and bootlegs. Not a lot of drop-back passes."
UW DL Coach Charlie Partridge:
He is so fast that if you lose him for a second he can make you pay dearly," UW defensive line coach Charlie Partridge said. "You've got to be aware of where he is at all times . . .
"He can make you miss well enough that if he does make a guy miss he can be gone. I've known who this kid is for a lot of years from recruiting down there in Florida. He is a little bit of a local legend. I'm very aware of how fast he really is."
UW HC Bret Bielema on Denard:
"Robinson, everybody wants to talk about him running the football," UW coach Bret Bielema said. "He looks very special doing that . . . I know he's had some picks, some bad decisions, but he's got a live arm. Because of what he can do in the running game, he really throws your secondary and linebackers in isolated coverages.
