    I say we stay with the shitty WCO, short passes for 4 yards and running up the middle in a stacked box is doing so well,
    why change at all?

    Re: Thoughts on going to a wildcat style offense

    Lets be serious......any adjustment to our offense would require an OC and Head Coach with imagination.
    I would say that our offense is Vanilla, but that isnt giving Vanilla enough credit for at least being a flavor!

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Vikings wild about Wildcat?

    The Wildcat formation is similar to the single wing formation that was popular during the NFL's infancy. The ball is snapped to a running back in the shotgun formation. The quarterback in this modern version splits out as a wide receiver.

    Taking the snap, the running back can run, pass, hand off to another running back or throw laterally to the quarterback, who can run it himself or throw downfield to someone else.

    I think "sprinkling" this in would be fricken great!
    We could snap to AP and/or CT who could keep it, hand off, fake a hand off and run on a draw/delay, put Jackson in an end around, toss it back to him, have him pull up and throw deep or just take off for the first if its open.
    The options are nearly endless and sure to keep defenses guessing!
    I think TJack could be a great "slash" type player.
    He runs like a RB and has a cannon for an arm...if he can catch too, we'd be set.


    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    I think its a fad that will roll through the league this year but will be forgotten about soon. It worked when it was a surprise but soon the defenses with figure it out.

    Re: Thoughts on going to a wildcat style offense

    Im not sure that the wild cat would work with our team. Based on the way defenses plan for AD it seems more likely to help them stop him. With AD teams fair his cut back ability and are taught to stay at home and play their alleys. With the Wildcat, it simply isolates him and makes it easier for the defense to key on him. I doubt Defenses will bite on Ferotte being out there. I would like to see




    BB

    XXOXX






    VS SR
    BW


















    TJ








    GF

    Out of this formation, you could hick and toss to tj, VS being the end over WR/TE can not leave the line of scrimmage and would be a blocker. BB would run a 15 yard drag with SR running a hard sell on a go.
    JT could either catch and run or catch and throw.

    Re: Thoughts on going to a wildcat style offense

    I like the idea of the wildcat offense with TJack lined up as a receiver. He's pretty mobile and he can pass if need be
