Unfortunate that Max had to endure such pressure. What erks me is the old staff didn't realize their body of work and either lighten up or change their coaching style. Wouldn't you realize if you had 20 + years of coaching. You might go so far to say, they caused his performance to be questionable.Let's face it our previous offensive system and coaches just about ruined Duggan. Duggan too often took the blame for the system and coaching failures in the old offense. I am not one to look back and beat a dead horse. However, the last several years our offense had the imagination of a real toad and a dead one at that.
This new staff and their offense is about being imaginative, everyone doing their job, sharing the ball and the load and then making plays. Riley has taught our QB's to read, check off and get the ball down field. It is no longer read one guy and if he is not open then run like hell as far as you can.
Love the sentence from Dykes, he's relaxed, confident and playing very well. The current staff did that for Max and now it
's paying big dividends. Dykes...'he's throwing passes that he never threw before. Amazing!'... You know what, we will see that and more, I think!!
Did you notice his TD scamper last week, he was leaving the defensive speed guys in his dust. WTG Max..
