You're still missing the point. There are a plethora of calls going on presnap. A QB MIGHT influence the blocking scheme to shade to the strong side of the defense, or the other variables I pointed out. If you are saying that the QB is going to be able to pick up shades on a DLineman and then tell the guys up front who to pick up, THEN make a presnap read, adjust his WR's etc... etc.... well then I'll just have to disagree.
Tom Brady doesn't do that. Not sure where this myth that a Belichick/OBrien QB will make every single call on the field came from.
