One of the biggest benefits of having a veteran quarterback is his ability to look out of the defense and know he's got to change the play. In this week's Billick 101. We find out how one of the all time greats checks -- how -- Darrel bevel the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings -- One of the things about preformed there but he points out is that that because that experience -- can check in now let's talk about something that Brett might see. Or any quarterback that you. That you've got a certain play called that he sees this or that so he's gonna get to this type. I think they're given that quarterbacks club more -- and it it would put more more more on the shoulders. That basically upon looked at their defense. You know a lot of times. You know maybe few years ago we just turn -- have chronicled we turn around hand the running back. Regardless how many guys in the box and you know hope hopefully we have good play well well now you know we're trying to have them look at the defense. And and and take a look at what's going on in the back in. In May be about it personal look that we wanna run it is it -- against the look that we want to vote yes. You know so so for example you know just just the -- defense that warm -- in all the time. -- let's just say we're and a just an air base. You know -- just your bass pro China and the other one of the the base defense that and I've seen all the time into being just an idea what we call up 59 front. Okay so so that's the first priority problem that we're come out take a look at what the front is. And with the run that we may have called C that we had the numbers to run and have a good. So he's take a look at the front the second team might do you know looking back. Okay so where exactly -- let's say that we have issue regular drop. Where we're -- what take a look at the back and take a look at the front so you know what. We got seven in the box that's great numbers brought to go ahead run the running it's so he's gonna come up. If you look at you know what. I'm -- with the -- Well a lot of drives out. Because that disguised it right back here number 48 and you know they may try to shorts that type look but at some point they're gonna get one of these safeties. Or hope to say he's down in the box. So that we have a few ways obviously gave to it where we can call a run and pass even when Colorado -- we caught two passes or we can say. Given the one run he starts to get the book. He can check you wouldn't -- got a lot run two plays in the huddle and check with me that you're anticipating good we're good to go with the run. But it's easier ways of the players know what's coming that if they don't get look here's the second play go to. It's key for us -- try to over communicate players they've made sure that -- like other guys know exactly what they're gonna get so. Number of times we will give you place will get more run and pass -- like -- it can be run run in the past Patton just depend on the situation we wanted we won't have happened game. I won't say that there there's there's also times where he'll come out -- say this is just not a good run and only give them -- run right now we have a whole another system. To be able to check the way to a completely different way.
