What you fail to realize is that every play had adjustments that could be made at the line. Its on the QB to recognize presnap those situations and make the proper adjustment calls be that a route combination , a protection package or both.
Most people here seem to think that the QB's were not allowed to audible but the fact is that they were able to make the necessary changes to be successful against any given defensive scheme at any given time.
For instance , they call a run play with 8 in the box .... they have a pass play from the same set that they can adjust to.
The defense shows an overload on one side or the other , the line has different responsibilities and the route combinations change along with the # of steps in the QB's drop or they have a run play from the same set ....
We don't see all this as fans watching the game but the adjustments are at the QB's disposal.
We just think "they don't audible" .....
