Mike Holmgren breaks down west-coast offense terminology

Daniel R. Harris-USA TODAY Sports

Ever wondered how hard it would be to learn an NFL playbook? Ever underestimate how hard it is for quarterbacks to switch teams and pick up their new team's play-calling terminology? I actually wonder about this all the time and underestimate how hard it is all the time. Well, not all the time, but I don't think most people realize how much work that takes. I can barely remember my address, not even kidding. I literally sometimes have to look it up on my phone because I am dyslexic and screw up the order of the numbers. I don't know why I'm telling you this. Anyway.

Listen in. The whole conversation is great, but Holmy starts waxing nostalgic about the WCO at about the 19 minute mark, and that there is some good radio:
