    I can honestly see a "no QB" set with McKinnon as the FB and AP as the HB, and an extra TE or WR in the set. Is it a run/option? Will McKinnon just become a QB in the shotgun?

    THAT is my only point. I think this kid adds a dimension to our offense that, IF Turner wants to pursue it, makes for extremely dynamic offenses for AP to run out of, or Patterson/Jennings to get quick routes and expound on their abilities to get YACs.

    This line of discussion is ran through every offseason around these parts. Whenever we draft an "athlete" that has played multiple positions, everyone has flashbacks to their high school days or how a certain college program has had success with exotic looks. In the NFL, if you aren't great at one aspect of the game, your pretty much normalized. Being average at a lot of things, doesn't seem to equate to a whole lot of success.

    With Kelly, he does run a lot of different formations, but he seems to predicate his offense largely on running things up tempo and for the QB to get rid of the ball super fast. Stressing defenses by constantly pushing them. I'm sure he has gimmicks as well, but I don't see that as a staple of his offense.

    If you really want to mess with a defense, put a QB in that can throw the ball. Without respect for the pass, life becomes pretty simple on defense. Philly always has aspects of run and pass on any given play. Lining up McCoy or a guy like McKinnon behind center pretty much takes that away.

    I agree.

    I believe the Vikings drafted McKinnon as a running back. If a trick play is put in from time to time, it would help for him to have passing ability, but the Wildcat is a bust.

    If Cassel or Bridgewater lights it up, trick plays become a "watch this hand, not the other" type of magic show, I agree.

    But boy, when they work, they are fun to watch. Kelly had a few set ups that were so foreign they looked like 7 on 7 scrimmages. If they worked, they were fun to watch; if they didn't, they were fun to laugh about.

    I just love the fact that we drafted a QB as a RB, and get excited at the possibilities, no matter how remote.
