    It's always a tough thing when you're game book is filled with 2-TE sets and you're top TE goes down early.

    P.S. How enormous must the playbook be when it carries 30 plays for the backup FS/ part-time 5th receiver Mike Furrey?

    Why should that matter? I would think your offensive personnel would be familiar with the entire playbook, not just the plays you plan on running that game. I could see where this might disrupt your offense for a quarter or so, but I would think that this is an adjustment the the coaching staff and players should be able to make just by changing your playcalling.

    The Rams tend to have a majority of their running plays associated with a 2 TE set. When you don't dress one and then one goes down with an injury, the Rams lose blocking power.

    I would think the players are familiar with the entire playbook, but each game will focus on certain plays within the book based on what the offense sees as the best strategy against a particular defense. When that strategy is taken out, they have to go with a contigency which may have seen limited time on the practice field the week before.
