Asked by the St. Louis Rams whether or not players, i.e. QB Sam Bradford, could meet with the team's new offensive coordinator in February, the league said no. The Rams obliged. Teaching and learning the new playbook would just have to wait. Technically teams can't even give their players a copy of the new play book right now.
The Miami Dolphins did not wait to get started. QB Chad Henne and the team's new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll met "many times" last month to go over the playbook. You're probably wondering what the consequences will be. None. The league will not take action against the Dolphins for their actions.
I guess the Rams did the right thing. But it makes you wonder why. Seems so very non Josh McDaniels-like.
