Football Film Study: The QB Rotation

What did the Bears gain by playing both Garbers and Bowers for so many snaps?


One of the most interesting parts of Saturday’s game against UNC was the way that our coaches used our QB personnel. In this video, we look at Wilcox’ post-game comments on the rotation. We look at what UNC’s basic defensive structure was, and at the way that this impacted our offensive strategy. Finally, we’ll see how Bowers and Garbers presented two different ways to attack that defensive structure, and think about the coaches’ motivations for playing both of them when they did.
