Free to succeed, free to stumble
One staple of Dana Holgorsen’s offense is the freedom give to the quarterback to change plays at the line of scrimmage. The Oklahoma State offensive coordinator knows giving his quarterbacks that freedom comes with potential drawbacks but the positives outweigh the negatives.
With Brandon Weeden quarterbacking the Pokes this season, Holgorsen expects mistakes but it won’t change the freedom given to his signal callers.
“He’ll make some bad checks,” Holgorsen said of Weeden. “But if you handcuff him because he makes a bad check you’ll never see him make a good check. You have to give him freedom and let him roll with it.”
