Default Sage Rosenfels talking about playing QB in our Offense

Podcast


Pretty good interview with Sage. He talks a bit about playing QB under Kubiak and gives some insight into how our system is set up.

Hopefully this helps shed some light on how our offense is run including how much freedom our guys have when calling plays.

Are you saying that the offense is good until they have to run empty sets?

The offense makes it simple for the QB with the play action.

When you get to empty, it's all on the QB to make the right read.
Obviously, there are concepts to help the QB, but the system that Kubiak runs don't go with the empty set much because it doesn't tie into the main concept of the play action in the ZBS.

Even in the single back set, Alex Gibbs had talked about (in that series where he worked with the LSU Tigers coaches) how he needed to think of ways to tie everything together so that he can make it "simple" (not a good term) for all the guys.

Read the title as in coming back to play and thought "now that is a QB controversy!"

I get all that, I was just curious about what you meant...

But yeah...Empty sets definitely put more on the QB as far as thinking goes.

I always enjoy talking footba with you Rey.
Obviously, I've been learning things from you, but I also learns football strategies, concepts, philosophies, and techniques from other sources, too.

My philosophy is that if I can learn at least one thing from each person, I will be alright.

I like Sage and I thought it was an excellent interview (heard it live taking my son home from the dentist).

He really shed some light on Kubiak's WCO and the role of QB. Fans expect too much from Schaub based on what other QBs do, but this system is not those systems. I think Kubiak has been a good QB guru, and like Sage said, his QBs usually have their best seasons when he's their coach. Heck, go back to Steve Young (Kubiak QB coach) and Elway (Kubiak OC calling plays) for examples before the Texans.

I would not be surprised if Sage ends up a Houston radio personality like Seth and TJ. Houston seems to appreciate former Texans.

Let's just not bring up Rosencopter.
