I always hear this.... but I don't buy it on things like false starts and running out of bounds. These guys have been playing football their entire lives. Those things are on them. They know to stay in bounds and keep the clock running. They know the snap count. A coach isn't in there ear on every play telling them "Stand up and block now" or "stay in bounds". These are things that guys need to know by the time they get to the NFL.
