McVay uses a lot of words

Back when I played the game for fun as a kid, it was simpler: Draw it up the dirt, saying who goes where, as in, "Bill, you line up right and I'll fake Brice by looking right, and you go behind me and I'll hand it to you and you go left and I'll try to block Brice." Or simply, "Everybody go out for a pass."
.


Sean Payton’s was not, only occasionally, but he had Drew Brees, so he didn’t need to do all that.

He could build the concept and say within this one play Drew, here is the man side, here is the zone side of progression, go to this vs guy in progression first if pressure, check the protection to pick up known blitzers and so on. So Drew was more in charge.

Brees built the offense so the formation and shift would kind of tell Drew exactly what defense was in and then build a pass concept with options for everything.

Like, "I am calling this play versus this defense" in practice and in the game and get that play call, then Brees knows what the deal is, he does the thinking.
Not all QBs can do that...the greats can.

Brees was rare and could process and handle it. I think with Stafford that is starting to happen - with Goff I don't think that would have ever happend...McVay was in his ear to the very last second telling him things...

  It's nuts, but Lense to Deuce right RB is out wide, then shifts back to backfield from the left

  It's a lot---far more than what it used to be - "Green, 34 Power, on two"
