QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On if he would describe Denver’s offense as unorthodox and what does that do for film study:
It’s different. I don’t know that I would call it unorthodox when you win but it is different. There’s more option than you ever see from any other team. There’s more quarterback run than you see from any other team. So you have to prepare for all of that and that makes it different. It’s still a Wildcat package is what it ends up being. You have to be ready to all of those situations. Plus they run traditional offense which they have to do. If something were to happen to (Tim) Tebow and then next guy has to go in and he can’t do all of that so they do enough traditional stuff that that keeps you honest as well.
