Jauron confident in Van Pelt’s abilities

For those wondering how confident Dick Jauron is in Alex Van Pelt’s abilities to call a game as an offensive coordinator, a proper description would be, supremely.

“Quite frankly I don’t think that Alex is going to struggle,” said Jauron. “What happens is sometimes you’re successful and sometimes you’re not. But I don’t think he’s going to have problems calling plays. I think he’ll be very organized, think he’ll get them out quickly, and then it’ll just be a function, as I just said, our success or failure and it’s always easier when you’re successful. When it works and you win you’re really smart, and when it doesn’t work and you lose you’re not very smart at all and that’s the way it is. But I don’t see Alex struggling in preparation and I don’t think he’ll struggle on game day making calls or making adjustments.”

What I like most is that Van Pelt will be upstairs in the booth. Being away from the chaos of the sideline can only help. You get to isolate yourself from the rest of the goings on of a game.
