I'll put it this way: on Saturday, Palmer threw the ball 26 times in the first half. Not one time was there a designed rolllout. I'm more referring to that than him tucking the ball away and getting a few yards.
scramble, he's not in a wheelchair, but in terms of the effectiveness of the bootleg that this system likes to employ, he doesn't run it very well. We also don't seem to block for it very well either. It's mostly been a mess every time. So it appears that Greg Knapp has adjusted to that and is calling plays that play to Palmer's strengths as a pocket passer.
