Figuring out what makes a "complex" offense is impossible without knowing each team's terminology, playbook size, concepts, and so on. Still, we can make some good guesses using Game Charting. In this article, I come up with a Simplicity Score, which I think is a pretty good indicator of how complicated an offense really is, despite some obvious limitations.
