Perhaps you know the two points I have coming when you answer......Quote:

Quick question, of the two QB's above, which one do you want to start? 1rst column or the second?
1. Our QB does just as well as the other QB (maybe even better).
2. QB's don't run around throwing it deep like you contend they do in this scheme. Even HOF QB's.
He eluded to the game tape that proved he was right. Meanwhile certain fans tried to claim receivers weren't getting open, when indeed they were.
Then there were the bad throws to. Yep he threw to a lot of different receivers, but it doesn't change the fact that he only completed 50% of his passes & he missed seeing those open receivers. 11 passes completed for 63 yards? C'mon Marty.
Gimme a break. Next thing we are going to see is Welker complaining that he was open but Peyton went to the other guy. Or better yet, Danny complaining that he was open and Brady went to the TE.
For goodness sake, to sit here and say that guys standing wide open were missed WR's in this scheme is almost kindergarden material.
The scheme dictates that you will have multiple WR's open. Its the QB's job to pick which one will be the best and go to him almost as his first read and like it or not, that will mean, little Diva's (who are a second or third read) that don't get the ball when they feel like they should will get all pissy.
WEST COAST OFFENSE OVERVIEW
Again, in that game, AD was getting just as many balls as Percy, not to mention how many other receivers were also getting targets.
Ole Diva boy was feeling left out and started to complain.
In the end, he matches up well in the area we need him to do, in this scheme. If we were running something else then I would be worried about his progress.
Right now we are coming off of a 10-6 season were AD didn't do much the first half and young Ponder did OK enough to win games.
Again, 6 of the first 8 he was over 200 yards. One of those that he wasn't was 198. Just good enough.....Just good enough.
Lets see how that improves this year because it will and like the Sully/Birk discussion, you will either forget to join in on those or you will just come up with some sort of excuse why you missed the mark. :)
I find it amusing how the read progression works in this scheme along with how many receivers can be open at times, that fans even worry open open receivers. You should see them all over the field if they are running their routes right.
Another thing that is interesting in that most yutz fans and reporters say that a QB running this scheme gets locked onto his first receiver. I was reading some stuff on the scheme last night working on my WR break down and according to Walsh, thats what is supposed to happen.
The QB should know, based on the pre-snap read, who to throw the ball to and he should only go to a second or third or fourth etc read if the first read was wrong or the receiver didn't get open.
I'm gonna call out every yutz that tries to spew forth that drivel this year as I'm making it my official soap box. :)
In your world you think he wanted Ponder to throw to him 100% of the time & that's BS.
BTW it was the article with the direct quote from Harvin. Not an article you claim wasn't solely because you didn't believe it.
Now if you got a quote from Harvin stating he didn't say that, then by all means share it.
