Dan Fouts weighs in on future of read option in NFL
Dial Global Radio analyst Dan Fouts joined the show to break down the playoffs.
Fouts weighed in on Chip Kelly’s ability to run his spread offense in the NFL with the Eagles. Fouts said he needs the right quarterback. “It’s a rare athlete that’s going to be called upon to run that style of offense,” Fouts said.
Fouts said that the read option quarterbacks are going to take huge hits if they get out of the pocket and lose that protection.
Fouts thinks this will be a very entertaining Super Bowl because of how different the offenses are. Fouts said that Niners’ offense is a little more varied. But the Ravens have some weapons.
Fouts talked about the recent controversy over Tim Brown’s statement that then-coach Bill Callahan sabotaged the Super Bowl for the Raiders against the Bucs. He said that Oakland’s problem was that Jon Gruden knew Rich Gannon’s tendenciesso well.
