Chris Brown, as usual, has some sharp insights, in this case, about the way Baylor deploys its wide receivers.
But the most remarkable thing to me is how lazy Baylor’s offense is. What do I mean? I mean that if you watch Baylor closely, you will frequently see something you almost never see: receivers jogging or even just standing around while their teammates run their routes full speed.
This is what he’s referring to:
That’s something you don’t see. As Chris puts it, “It’s amazing to me any team can get away with this, let alone arguably the best offense in the country at any level.”
It’s by design, believe it or not.
… Briles actually coaches his receivers to save their legs when the play isn’t going to them, and their tempo, maximum receiver splits, and packaged plays mean that those receivers often affect the defense just based on how they line up rather than what they do after the snap.
Geez, that’s scary.
