thats a good point. off the top of my head you, you would have to allow for the players "natural" skills to shine. Build the scheme around him and look to develop those other skills. Much like washington did in RG3s first year and what the panthers are doing with Newton.

The offence will be vastly different whether we get manziel or TB/BB.
My belief is you must construct your team with the players you have not force them into different holes.
