I remember when Kolb played his first game with us how he would take the snap and look for one read, maybe two and if no one was open would just throw the ball out of bounds. I read later that’s the way Briles taught his quarterbacks. For them, second and 10 was nothing. Better to live and fight another down than to throw an interception. I think that kind of mentality could do wonders for Allen. To me, his biggest problem was forcing balls into coverage-if they could coach that out of him he could be stellar in this system.
Overall, I think qb’s in this system need to be accurate and have a good deep ball. Athleticism and speed are just an added luxury but not a necessity. I agree with Sam Houston in that don’t be surprised to see Allen start next season with Tune as the future backup.
