Clarifying the Offense for you all tenku Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,643 Likes Received: 1,385 Sep 28, 2019 #1 For all the people blaming Graham Harrell or Clay Helton for bad play-calling, you need to understand how this offense works. This offense solely relies on giving the QB the decision. All Graham Harrell is doing is communicating with what he sees when the defense first lines up or giving the QB choices of a couple of plays. Clay Helton actually doesn't say a word unless he sees something that the OC doesn't see, then he'll make a suggestion. This offense does not have set plays where the coaches call it in and the QB must run whatever they call in. Today, Fink made some terrible decisions, especially near the goal line. The right read on the interception would have been to hand it off to the running back, but instead, he kept the ball and threw a pick. This offense works very well when you have a savvy QB that is good and quick at reading the last second changes that the defense makes at the line of scrimmage. This offense doesn't work very well when you have a QB that doesn't see the entire field clearly and has problems reading through progressions. This offense works very well for a QB like Slovis who was taught by Kurt Warner to make good decisions quickly. You can blame Clay Helton for other things though like being a bad teacher.
