Versatility is Key on Offense

We all know that Saunders has a huge playbook. When a defense knows what kind of things you like to do on offense, they tend to counter your offense with a defense suited to slow down your attack. But if you can run a wide range of plays, that keeps the defense on its toes.

With Colllins at quarterback, any play in Saunders playbook is a possibility. Also, with his exterme knowledge of the playbook he can determine where the open guy will be on many plays. He is physically limited, but keeping the defense on its toes can lead to points. As long as he doesn't make costly turnovers we should be alright.

Good points, but just because he knows where they're suppose to be doesn't mean he'll know when they're going to make their breaks or become open. Timing will take time (that just doesn't sound right), although it didn't look like the lack of play time effected him the other night.

He could do for us what Brunell did two years ago...which is just get the ball to the playmakers and let them do what they do. Brunell didn't exactly ha ve a laser arm either but he took us to the second round of the playoffs. Putting Brunell in right now wouldn't be a better option then Collins because he doesn't understand the system as well as Collins and is physically similiar.

I agree and watching Collins' actual regular season game experience is only going to help Campbell when he returns in a couple of weeks. Campbell has natural abilities while Collins knows the system so if JC has something to look at on the sidelines as far as knowing where to go in certain situations it will only help him in this offense.

I do not think that anyone thinks that Collins is a better QB than Campbell but anyone can learn from anybody.
