Agreed. He got to play lesser competition a lot of games since Oregon became an elite program. Most of the talent in the Pac-12 over those years were inferior, especially when it came to speed. Oregon never had the most elite players in the country but they had the perfect players for that system and the players bought into it.
The NFL is a whole different ballgame. We will see how he connects to these players, whom are grown men playing for a paycheck and a lot of them have egos. Some may not buy into this system he brings. And it's hard in the NFL to get all the guys you want and need like you can in college through recruiting.
It will be interesting, though. He has the type of QB right now in Vick. But injuries are always a problem with him.
