    The WCO when run in its purest form is a thing of beauty. But our team is not set up for it.
    Yeah, I regretfully agree. We can't all be the Packers, Saints, and Patriots. Modified WCO offenses rule the NFL. Anything else is substandard.

    The irony is that Childress used the WCO nomenclature, but he did not embrace the theory. It took Brett Favre and his audibles to make it work.

    I can't really tell what Bill Musgrave is running this season. I see short routes, but they look like set patterns rather than dual read routes.

    My WCO comment was actually to say that the Vikings rarely use the split set. They use single back or the "I", and that would not work as well for Webb or Harvin lining up in the backfield.

    And our RB, while easily the best in the NFL, is not a great pass catching RB.
    How can a running back that is not great at catching passes be easily the best in the NFL? One would think that would limit his threatability.

    Bottom line guys, experiment needs to end. A freak athlete without specialized NFL position skills is no longer worth the effort. It was a good idea on the off chance it hit. I want to see if MBT has anything and just resolve the backup deal. sage can service,but we need more from a backup.
