Most guys do learn quite a bit from their first go around, then again some don't.
No, most NFL teams don't script their plays... many do, I don't know the number but to say the majority do is a little bit of a stretch.
No it's not 15 plays either, do you realize how many sorry offensive teams out there? To be able to script 15 straight plays would be an OC with a very bright mind.
Bill Walsh started all this and he did around 20, and that was amazing. Shanny did what? Like 10-15 plays?...
Patriots didn't script plays until this year...
