So, the early reports are that the guy who has known one offense for 10 years has moved on to a new offense, a horribly complicated NFL offense (we hope) mind you, and hasn’t picked it up in less than a week. Is anyone surprised? The ever-present Jim Wyatt gives us the update below:
If Peyton Manning went to a new team, he would struggle at first. The report doesn’t say that Hasselbeck struggles to comprehend, he just struggles to guide the offense right now. He’s intelligent, he can play good football, and he can lead the team. Give him more than a week to have the playbook and he’ll start getting it. This thing takes time. I’m only writing on this because I want to make sure everyone understands that this early in training camp, this is a non-issue. Now, in 3 weeks if he still has a problem then we can revisit the issue.
