Percy Harvin on Brett Favre: “He Knows the Game Better Than Our Coaches” (http://thevikingage.com/2010/05/17/percy-harvin-on-brett-favre-he-knows-the-game-better-than-our-coaches/)

Lol, this should be a fun thread. :P

Then Percy went a little further and suggested that, as a lot of people have always suspected, Brett was the one really calling the shots in the offense.
“I knew my job would be a lot easier when Brett got here,” Percy said. “He knows the game better than some of our coaches there. I knew our offense would run a lot smoother with a lot more opportunities. He’s known as a gunslinger.”
In other words, without Brett, the Vikings offense would’ve been boring and vanilla, and Percy would not have gotten the chance to shine.
With Brett dictating things, Chillyball took a backseat, and the offense became dynamic and exciting.


:D

I will give him the little tidbit about the Noodle knowing more about the scheme than our coaches, one would almost have to think that especially after 20 years running this offense but the rest of the stuff, ala the HC taking a back seat to a QB, is really out there.

Again, gonna be fun to see who actually believes this jibberish.

ah, so a quote from a player that proves your point is a reputable source, but if it goes against what you preach its jibberish?

Backseat to Favre might be a bit of a stretch (Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote), but its absolutely believable that Favre ran the offense, despite what you'd have us think.

Running the offense and audibling from the run play to the pass play the O-cord sent in isn't running the offense.

I have never once said he didn't have the lattitude to do this. :P

What I have said is that there is no way the Noodle spends time going over the other teams defensive weaknesses, then sits down and lays out the gameplan, briefs it to the HC and then orchestrates that gameplan during the game.

Audible vs Gameplanning. Two entirely different concepts.

Then mix in the whole "Chilly took a back seat" comment. Anyone who knows anything knows that if anyone took a back seat it would be the O-coord (cat who actually calls the plays from the gameplan that he developed).


(Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote)
Who ever said that is probably a bit closer to reality that the author.....

Again, gonna be fun to see who believes this crap. ;)

Oh I don't know Marr... given the way the previous QB's had their hand tied and weren't allowed to call audibles then Chilly/OC letting a QB audible is running the offense in Minnesota :laugh:

“I knew my job would be a lot easier when Brett got here,” Percy said. “He knows the game better than some of our coaches there. I knew our offense would run a lot smoother with a lot more opportunities. He’s known as a gunslinger.”

Good point on Peyton, but all in all, he still doesn't do the legwork on the gameplan vs the opposing teams weakness.

There is a whole coaching staff that puts that stuff together.

Quick question, in the direct quotes, do you know what the
[the season] means?

I'd imagine he just said something like "I just went into this trying..." or some other generic term, and it was altered so there would be minimal confusion as to what he meant.

He said "SOME of our coaches."

There are quality control guys and assistant coaches on the offense that are younger than Brett.

He's been running the offense for 17 years. There's no doubt he knows what works and what doesn't, he's seen it all.

I don't think there's any controversy in Harvin's statement, it's factual. He knows the offense better than some of our guys, no doubt. Better than Childress? No. Better than Bevell? Maybe. The rest of the guys going down the food chain, probably.

They say Peyton watches more tape than anybody, I'm willing to be he's at least active in gameplanning. He probably sits with the coaches and goes over tape and points out things he notices. He seems like one of the most pro-active guys in the league, I doubt those countless accounts of how much he watches tape and works are all lies. I don't know the extent on what he does, but I'd be willing to bet that he has some part in gameplanning.

That, and he has a choice of plays to run on any given play, should also make that fairly clear.

I've said before, Tom Moore has one of the easiest jobs in the game.

I agree, Peyton is probably the most active in that regard, but he probably only gets involved when they review specific sets/trends that the rest of the staff has found, to make sure he knows what he is seeing.

So what your saying is, it isn't a direct quote, but actually a quote the author took the liberty of editing so us dumb yutz's would understand the point the author was trying to make.

I will give him the little tidbit about the Noodle knowing more about the scheme than our coaches, one would almost have to think that especially after 20 years running this offense but the rest of the stuff, ala the HC taking a back seat to a QB, is really out there.

Again, gonna be fun to see who actually believes this jibberish.

ah, so a quote from a player that proves your point is a reputable source, but if it goes against what you preach its jibberish?

Backseat to Favre might be a bit of a stretch (Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote), but its absolutely believable that Favre ran the offense, despite what you'd have us think.
Running the offense and audibling from the run play to the pass play the O-cord sent in isn't running the offense.

I have never once said he didn't have the lattitude to do this. :P

What I have said is that there is no way the Noodle spends time going over the other teams defensive weaknesses, then sits down and lays out the gameplan, briefs it to the HC and then orchestrates that gameplan during the game.

and nobody is telling you this either.

There's a difference between running the offense and calling the offense.

If there's a QB who calls the offense, its Peyton Manning.

Brett Favre runs it though, no question.



Then mix in the whole "Chilly took a back seat" comment. Anyone who knows anything knows that if anyone took a back seat it would be the O-coord (cat who actually calls the plays from the gameplan that he developed).


(Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote)
Who ever said that is probably a bit closer to reality that the author.....

Again, gonna be fun to see who believes this crap. ;)
again, these are the direct quotes from Harvin:


I just went into [the season] trying to contribute to the team first of all in the special-teams area but Brett got there and kind of took me into the game a little faster than I probably would have learned it under other quarterbacks,”


“I knew my job would be a lot easier when Brett got here,” Percy said. “He knows the game better than some of our coaches there. I knew our offense would run a lot smoother with a lot more opportunities. He’s known as a gunslinger.”

the rest is just interpretation.
Good point on Peyton, but all in all, he still doesn't do the legwork on the gameplan vs the opposing teams weakness.

There is a whole coaching staff that puts that stuff together.

Quick question, in the direct quotes, do you know what the
[the season] means?

I'd imagine he just said something like "I just went into this trying..." or some other generic term, and it was altered so there would be minimal confusion as to what he meant.

They say Peyton watches more tape than anybody, I'm willing to be he's at least active in gameplanning. He probably sits with the coaches and goes over tape and points out things he notices. He seems like one of the most pro-active guys in the league, I doubt those countless accounts of how much he watches tape and works are all lies. I don't know the extent on what he does, but I'd be willing to bet that he has some part in gameplanning.

That, and he has a choice of plays to run on any given play, should also make that fairly clear.

I'd love to see just how much Peyton's involved in film study etc.

It's close to impossible to build a gameplan etc. while being the QB of a succesful team. Tom has to filter some stuff out for him.

In the end, I think that it's more of a great minds think alike thing with Manning and Moore. They seem to work together so well.

He's been running the offense for 17 years. There's no doubt he knows what works and what doesn't, he's seen it all.

I don't think there's any controversy in Harvin's statement, it's factual. He knows the offense better than some of our guys, no doubt. Better than Childress? No. Better than Bevell? Maybe. The rest of the guys going down the food chain, probably.

The Chicago game is proof positive he knows it better than Childress. Even Favre was quoted to saying he basically took over the 2nd half.

Lol, this should be a fun thread. :P

Hmmm....where have I heard THIS before?


In a chat with the Palm Beach Post, Percy Harvin gave the credit for his speedy development as a wide receiver to the guy who threw him the ball in 2009, and may be throwing him the ball again in 2010.

“I just went into [the season] trying to contribute to the team first of all in the special-teams area but Brett got there and kind of took me into the game a little faster than I probably would have learned it under other quarterbacks,” Harvin said.

But Jackson would have done just as good, right Mar?

This is Childress' variation of Holmgren's system. Not the exact same thing. I can't see Favre knowing it better. I think he has a better feel for the game, but in terms of simply knowing the offense, it has to be Childress. It's his offense, he put together the playbook.

No, Andy Reid put the play book togather...

Childress got it colored half way, then Bevell spilled his watercolors all over it and they had to redo it.

Favre was brought in run things until they can get a new book from Reid....probably in the form of Donovan McNabb (by way of Washington).

I don't think there's any controversy in Harvin's statement, it's factual. He knows the offense better than some of our guys, no doubt. Better than Childress? No. Better than Bevell? Maybe. The rest of the guys going down the food chain, probably.

Percy was only talking about the Offensive coaches...Brett knows the system better than they do.

Obviously Brett doesn't over rule the Defensive coaches.

I was only referring to offensive coaches as well.

The Chicago game is proof positive he knows it better than Childress. Even Favre was quoted to saying he basically took over the 2nd half.

I have to agree, Favre knows the WCO better than anyone on the coaching staff. Childress places too much emphasis on a vanilla running game to really call his version a WCO philosophy. It's more a simple "ball control" offense.

Favre's 18 years running the WCO was with more of a true WCO philosophy. And more importantly, with 18 years of a QB with Favre's skillset...Favre himself...of course he knows how to run "this offense" best.

Having said that, I think Chilli provides a good counterbalance to Favre's gunslinger mentality and that helps aid in the reduction of Interceptions.

That doesn't mean the system/playbook has changed. Just the way we use it has.

Truth is, we don't know who knows the actual system better. But I have a hard time believing it's not Childress, for the reasons I mentioned in my earlier post. However, that doesn't mean it's unfair to assume that Favre knows it better than some of our other coaches.

In all seriousness, I think that if it is an issue of who can explain the philosophy and principles behind the various aspects of the system , Chiller would be ahead.

If the question is, instead, who is better able to practically apply the system - either through play calling/altering plays or through general scheming over all (including reacting to on field situations), the answer is Favre.

The bottom line is that you have two different but RELATED people dealing with different aspects of the game plan. Chiller is the Commander in Chief - he comes up with teh overall strategy. Favre is the field General, he has to take the overall strategy and make it work.

One without the other is pretty useless - and in Chiller's case this is validated by the craptacular performance of the Offense prior to Favre's arrival. With Favre, you have to go back to the Ray Rhodes year to see an example of this going the other way.

Yeah, more like giving credit for "time in system". But, if I had to give the nod, I have to give it to Favre for that reason.

I'm willing to bet that Favre knows the WCO better than any of our coaches. He's been in it for about 17-18 years and knows every single detail of it, I mean, look how fast he picked up our terminology here.

Assuming Chilly is the only competition for Favre in knowing the offense, I think Favre has him beat. Chilly was a QB coach for the Colts in '85, and then went back to college FB until 99 when he joined the iggle's staff as a QB coach for a couple years (I'm assuming thats when he was deemed a QB guru) then switched to O-coordinator. Now hes with the Vikings. So by his timeline he's been in it (the WCO) for a little over 10 years.

At best for Chilly, I think its a draw. I don't think there is anything that Brad C. understands that Favre doesn't.

Agreed. Although theoretically Bevell is the one behind the offense and he does trace his roots back to Green bay so what he plans and what Brett knows should track closely. I would put Brett's knowledge of the WCO up against the coaching staffs knowledge any day. He has it mastered both fundamentally and mechanically.

Lol, this should be a fun thread. :P


...“I just went into [the season] trying to contribute to the team first of all in the special-teams area but Brett got there and kind of took me into the game a little faster than I probably would have learned it under other quarterbacks,” Harvin said...

Yes, was fortunate to have an HOFer guiding him his first year.


...Then Percy went a little further and suggested that, as a lot of people have always suspected, Brett was the one really calling the shots in the offense...

Yes, I trust a young 20-something's opinion on that. It is obvious that people who were actually coaching the game before he was born know less about the workings of a team than a player. Favre is an excellent field general, but, too much goes on behind the scenes to believe that he was the only reason the KAO was more KAOish with Favre at the helm. The best I can tell, it helps to have someone behind center that can execute the full playbook, read defeneses, and audible options based on what is seen on the field.

“I knew my job would be a lot easier when Brett got here,” Percy said. “He knows the game better than some of our coaches there. I knew our offense would run a lot smoother with a lot more opportunities. He’s known as a gunslinger.”
In other words, without Brett, the Vikings offense would’ve been boring and vanilla, and Percy would not have gotten the chance to shine.
With Brett dictating things, Chillyball took a backseat, and the offense became dynamic and exciting.


:D
I will give him the little tidbit about the Noodle knowing more about the scheme than our coaches, one would almost have to think that especially after 20 years running this offense but the rest of the stuff, ala the HC taking a back seat to a QB, is really out there.

Again, gonna be fun to see who actually believes this jibberish.

ah, so a quote from a player that proves your point is a reputable source, but if it goes against what you preach its jibberish?

Backseat to Favre might be a bit of a stretch (Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote), but its absolutely believable that Favre ran the offense, despite what you'd have us think.
Running the offense and audibling from the run play to the pass play the O-cord sent in isn't running the offense.

I have never once said he didn't have the lattitude to do this. :P

What I have said is that there is no way the Noodle spends time going over the other teams defensive weaknesses, then sits down and lays out the gameplan, briefs it to the HC and then orchestrates that gameplan during the game.

Audible vs Gameplanning. Two entirely different concepts.

Then mix in the whole "Chilly took a back seat" comment. Anyone who knows anything knows that if anyone took a back seat it would be the O-coord (cat who actually calls the plays from the gameplan that he developed).


(Seems to be the authors interpretation anyway, not Percy's quote)
Who ever said that is probably a bit closer to reality that the author.....

Again, gonna be fun to see who believes this crap. ;)

How the hell do you know if Lord Favre helps in the gameplanning or not?
Is he there now? Will he be there any time soon?

Not sure about you, but that appears to be a "me first" attitude that I wouldn't associate with a guy like a Brady or a Manning.

On a side note, I love to see how all the "Star" QB's are with thier teams right now. Except one of course......

There's a difference between running the offense and calling the offense.

If there's a QB who calls the offense, its Peyton Manning.

Brett Favre runs it though, no question.

again, these are the direct quotes from Harvin:


I just went into [the season] trying to contribute to the team first of all in the special-teams area but Brett got there and kind of took me into the game a little faster than I probably would have learned it under other quarterbacks,”


“I knew my job would be a lot easier when Brett got here,” Percy said. “He knows the game better than some of our coaches there. I knew our offense would run a lot smoother with a lot more opportunities. He’s known as a gunslinger.”

the rest is just interpretation.
Good point on Peyton, but all in all, he still doesn't do the legwork on the gameplan vs the opposing teams weakness.

There is a whole coaching staff that puts that stuff together.

Quick question, in the direct quotes, do you know what the
[the season] means?

I'd imagine he just said something like "I just went into this trying..." or some other generic term, and it was altered so there would be minimal confusion as to what he meant.

They say Peyton watches more tape than anybody, I'm willing to be he's at least active in gameplanning. He probably sits with the coaches and goes over tape and points out things he notices. He seems like one of the most pro-active guys in the league, I doubt those countless accounts of how much he watches tape and works are all lies. I don't know the extent on what he does, but I'd be willing to bet that he has some part in gameplanning.

That, and he has a choice of plays to run on any given play, should also make that fairly clear.

I've said before, Tom Moore has one of the easiest jobs in the game.
I agree, Peyton is probably the most active in that regard, but he probably only gets involved when they review specific sets/trends that the rest of the staff has found, to make sure he knows what he is seeing.


and it was altered so there would be minimal confusion as to what he meant.
So what your saying is, it isn't a direct quote, but actually a quote the author took the liberty of editing so us dumb yutz's would understand the point the author was trying to make.

In short, he thinks we are to dumb to get his point on our own or might even come up with an altogether idea which probably doesn't meet his agenda...... :huh:

if you edit a quote, you've gotta put the [edits] in the brackets. similar to this


In short, he thinks [the majority of PP.O members] are dumb to get his point on our own or might even come up with an altogether idea which probably doesn't meet his agenda...... :huh:

the fact is, the edit made has nothing to do with the actual content, just changing a choice of words. You're really [reaching] for something that isn't there

Marrdro reaching?! Naw that never happens. LOL!
Its a discussion not a who's right who's wrong thing.

Am I reaching? Maybe.....but in the end, I posted this thread so that we could have something to discuss.

He will be back in Foxboro this morning to resume work in the Patriots' offseason program. But he's not been a regular in the program thus far. Brady used to win awards for his attendance and fervor in the offseason program, but he said he has spent two weeks in the program since it began in mid-March. File this under the "life changes' category. The son he had with Bridget Moynahan, Jack, turns 3 in August. Benjamin Brady, his son with Bundchen, is 5 months old. Brady sounds like he'll be as much of a full-time dad as he can be while shuttling between Los Angeles and Boston.

The bottom line is that you have two different but RELATED people dealing with different aspects of the game plan. Chiller is the Commander in Chief - he comes up with teh overall strategy. Favre is the field General, he has to take the overall strategy and make it work.

One without the other is pretty useless - and in Chiller's case this is validated by the craptacular performance of the Offense prior to Favre's arrival. With Favre, you have to go back to the Ray Rhodes year to see an example of this going the other way.

The best I can tell, it helps to have someone behind center that can execute the full playbook, read defeneses, and audible options based on what is seen on the field.
A second poster who gets it. You and Mr. A must be comparing notes..... ;)

What amazes me the most is that most on here will go ahead and hack on the playbook, but when it is run by someone who understands it, they say its the QB and not the scheme.

Additionally, they will also hack on a young kid, who by all accounts, wasn't supposed to be ready to run the offense until year four, when he is run out there before he is ready.

Again, simply amazing. But as I said, this is a fun thread none the less and very telling in many ways. :laugh:

I go back in the closet starting Thurs until the 28th, then Baby Sister gets married.

Suffice it to say I will be out of pocket for a short spell. You need to hang around and keep a few of the "you know who's" in check. ;)

He will be back in Foxboro this morning to resume work in the Patriots' offseason program. But he's not been a regular in the program thus far. Brady used to win awards for his attendance and fervor in the offseason program, but he said he has spent two weeks in the program since it began in mid-March. File this under the "life changes' category. The son he had with Bridget Moynahan, Jack, turns 3 in August. Benjamin Brady, his son with Bundchen, is 5 months old. Brady sounds like he'll be as much of a full-time dad as he can be while shuttling between Los Angeles and Boston.

So, only one other QB in the NFL?

In other words, Marrdro was 96.8% correct?

Ah, I see.

Well Brady hasn't quite performed the same since those little camcorders went missing... so I'm gonna say he hasn't earned what Favre has earned.

Favre doesn't have to show up until 10 minutes before the Saints game for all I care. The team doesn't seem to care, so why should I?

I don't think he should show up until Tarvaris loses 3 or 4 games, get all the rest he can.Who knows maybe he can work from home this year.

lol, yes, maybe he can work from home and hobble in to save the day against the Packers in week 7. I heard they are going to rotate the QBs like MLB does with pitchers.

Jackson can start.
Favre can come in if when we start losing.
Webb can play for QB sneaks and wildcat.
Sage whenever the situation dictates we use a Rosencopter play.

I heard Zygi has a new jet that can get Favre there in 1.2 hours. Favre will show up during the national anthem and sit in the stands until his number is called.
