That statement is interesting considering our playbook last year was toss up the middle, slant, toss up the middle, curl.
I get what you're saying. But there any number of ways to streamline an offensive scheme making it easier to remember and recall, while at the same time not simplifying the offense its self.
Just from what I have heard on these spring updates, it sounds to me like essentially the offense will run out of a handful of base sets. Out of each base set, each piece of the play is interchangeable between base sets (to a certain degree). Instead of having to memorize lets just say 30 individual play calls that only apply to a single play, you only learn 5-6 set of responsibilities that can be applied in multiple variations across your different positions.
In other words... instead of being able to tell what the offense is about to run based off of the look they are giving you... The offense can essentially run ALMOST everything out of any set (or "look").
