It takes playing WR and a decent QB to tango.
What's so hard about covering a WR that only knows how to run a post and a fly route?
I see wide receivers like bird dogs - wild and fast as hell, but unpredictable. Once you get them trained to do what you expect WHEN you expect it, you can't live without 'em.
I have always heard that the farther away from the ball you are, the dumber you can be. However I don't think it is necessarily true.
As easy as it is to say, "Just tell the guy to go long." Teams at this level can easily stop this. Not knowing audibles or route combinations can break down an offense pretty quick.
Plus a WR has to want to block.
The QB has to be able to hit the post route.
In Hawkins system the route changes depending on the defensive alignment. That has some WR confused.
Does any one else remember an article a while ago? It was about when Hawk was at UC-Davis as a position coach and He complained to the head couch that one of the players had to be the dumbest player ever because he was not catching on to what ever Hawk was trying to teach. The HC came back and called Hawk the dumbest coach ever because he couldn't figure out another way to teach him. I spent sometime yesterday looking for it with know luck.
