Agree 100%.Best post on the board in a good while. Doesn't deserve to be lost in this thread (which is already great for other reasons). If you're willing to do an interview, would love to hit this topic with you in the offseason and turn it into a main board article or series. So much more to talk about re: Safeties, for example. Communication is completely teachable, but another one of those skills that needs openness from the coach/player. It's hard to teach communication because it needs to be practiced. And, without it, even if you have a Safety who recognizes route combinations and formation tendencies, your secondary will consistently break down. The spread (offense) has made certain "soft" skills as critical as attributes like speed.
And I would love to do an interview. I can talk ball all day, brother.
