    [size=13pt]Vikings Trying Out Handing Off Play-Calling Duties[/size]

    The hints that Brad Childress might let offensive coordinator Darren Bevell call some plays this season keep growing, but it seems like Bevell is having to do some auditioning during the offseason training activities....

    "You can't believe the things you see when your head is not down on the play-calling card," Childress said. "You're more of a head coach."
    He should have realized that a lot earlier last year & turned over the duties then. By his own admission, he was starring down at the play card rather than watching how well his plays were being executed on the field.

    Also, how do you correct players mistakes & make proper adjustments, when you don't see what is happening on the field?

    Watching game film afterwards & making adjustments/corrections then is a tad bit late IMO. It still needs to be done, but you have to know how well it's being executed during the game as well.
    Certainly could be an obvious explanation for little to no offensive adjustments made during the games.

    They seemed to move right down the field during the first drive with scripted plays.

    Perhaps Childress should script the first offensive drive, then let Bevell take over after that.

    Another thing I'm a fan of is allowing quarterbacks to audible. In fact, I wish quarterbacks still called the plays.

    That would be tough with our inexperienced qb's. But as they gain experience, and as games progress, they have a good idea what plays will and won't work.

    It has to be demoralizing to have a play called in that you feel won't work.And if you can't audible out of the play at crucial times, you end up burning a precious time out unnecessarily.

    Peyton Manning pretty much calls the plays within a framework set up for his offense.

    I realize we don't have Peyton Manning. But an ability to audible out when you recognize a defensive vulnerability
    could be very helpful.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    And he usually doesn't call the play until he's at the line of scrimmage & sees what defensive formation he's up against.

    I think it's hard to improve upon that scenario.
