The New Playbook Is Taking Shape
From Jason Reid:
Coach Jim Zorn and his top offensive assistants have been busy preparing a playbook for minicamp, which begins May 2. Zorn, assistant head coach Stump Mitchell and offensive coordinator Sherman Smith are making progress on the book that will provide the foundation for the team's West Coast offense.
"We're very close for what we want to do this offseason, and then it's just a matter of extending it out to the training camp," Zorn said. "The nuts and bolts are all there. We're just making sure that the pictures [displayed in coaching meetings] match exactly what we want to communicate" to the players.
Players envision having more freedom in Zorn's version of the West Coast offense, and "the sky's the limit as far as the imagination of what plays we want to run," Zorn said. "The nuts and bolts, as far as the protections, how we want to call plays, those are pretty much in. We're hashing over that."
Concerned about overloading players early, Zorn said he had not decided how many plays he should include for minicamp.
"I'm leaning [on] my coaches," Zorn said, "to make sure I don't do too much."
