Andy Staples: How Sam Bradford got a lockout crash course from Charlie Weis

The NFL lockout has created a nasty disadvantage for teams installing new offenses. In a normal year, a team that changes coordinators has an entire offseason to install the offense. By training camp, players should be well-versed in the new scheme's terminology and playbook. This year, players weren't even allowed to talk to their new coordinators. Some had playbooks, but without the coach to translate, a written copy of the offense wasn't all that meaningful.
