Coach Dillingham will also seek explosiveness from his quarterback room. These will be guys who can create big plays with both their arm and their feet.
The offense looks to be one that stretches the field not just horizontally, but also vertically. Shot plays are going to be called often as Dillingham schemes one-on-one matchups for his receivers, and the ability for the quarterback to put the ball in a number of locations is going to be crucial.
When we talk about quarterbacks being explosive with their feet, that is often taken as their ability to gain significant yards rushing the ball. While that is part of the equation, explosive feet can mean much more than that. The ability for a quarterback to extend plays with his feet and hit a receiver downfield is just as effective as him picking those yards himself.
That’s not to say that the running ability of the quarterbacks are forgotten in this offense. In fact, the exact opposite is true. The QB run game has become a more integral part of the system in recent years, and it is a varied attack.
