The last thing you want from him heading into his first start is for his head to be swimming with too much information going into the game.
Our QB has a pretty important role in the run game as well. He makes the final decision on how we're going to run, which way, identifying blockers, etc... at the line. He looks at the defense & decides how the play is going to turn out, run or pass.
We don't audible, we adjust at the line for every play. That's where I'm worried about Yates not working with the first team.
