Ah, yes. That offensive continuity rears it's ugly head again.Dalton eager to learn new offense

When Gruden left in 2014 to become head coach in Washington, Hue Jackson added his own West Coast wrinkles to Gruden’s playbook for the two seasons before he went to Cleveland as the head man. Ken Zampese, Dalton’s only quarterbacks coach, had been appointed for offensive continuity and Lazor inherited the playbook when Zampese was fired two games into his second season last year.

Even when he changes things up he maintains continuity! Pretty neat trick. Hard to suck up to the owner any better than that.Lazor oversees offense's hybrid evolution

But Lazor’s true definition of the West Coast comes from how Holmgren taught him to handle the quarterbacks.
“From my experience with Coach Holmgren, I’d say what the West Coast is, is the way you build the passing game to coach the quarterback,” Lazor said. “It’s a thought process, a philosophy of how the passing game is going to work. And it really is embedded in how the quarterback is going to play. His decisiveness and the way you build everything so he can play at a certain tempo.”
So it’s different. But the same. Change first, though.
“Over time, they’ll say, here is a list of things that carried over because we’re good at it,” Lazor said of his players. “There will be both (continuity and change). I just haven’t told them all that yet.”
