    Not that dream.
    The Wishbone will NOT work in the pros.
    There's a reason it's never been run, and that ain't because no coach has ever thought about it.

    Packers run the full house, and it works, and thats pretty much the Wishbone, except its flipped upsidedown.
    Obviously, it can't be an every down formation like the I or singleback, but in certain situations it can work, mainly for misdirection/counters, not so much for powersweeps like it is used for in HS/College ball.


    They said the same thing about the option never working in the pros, but the jets ran it with CHAD PENNINGTON.
    its not like he's mobile or anything, yet they got a first down i believe.

    Tight formations like that don't work in the pros because the talent level is too balanced...unlike at the college level where the talent disparity is quite broad in many matchups.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    No it's not.
    The Wishbone is an option-attack, not just 3 guys behind the QB.

    And any variation of more than 2 backs behind the QB in the NFL is just a gimmick, not a base offense.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
