    Re: Vikings work on Wildcat

    If Chilly is drawing it up, it should be called the "WildKitty" or "MildCat"

    Re: Vikings work on Wildcat

    Nice to see we got a taste of this last night. I think it could work if they used in the right situation once maybe 2 times max in a game every now and then. But stay away from Favre having to block Yikes!

    If Bevell designs it then it needs to be called the PussyCat. He is way too whipped by childless to be labeled as a wild man.

    How long do you think the "Wildcat" offense will last in the NFL?
    I think it will take the league over.
    Why invest in an 80 million dollar QB when you can have 3 slasher for that price. If teams can get the passing game going with it, It will be dangerous.

    No need to play them. Cowpies won't be playing starters anyway, so kind of pointless. I just wonder how far Berrian is with his hammy?
    yeah there is no need, but remember [glow=red,2,300]lining Favre up at WR in the texan game?
    [/glow]With the coaching staff, there is a saying they live by: Common sense aint so common
    Ya, I don't understand that play one bit. One would think that you would try and prevent your old QB from any unnecessary contact. I don't get it at all. Still scratching my head over that one. In preseason mind you! :-\
    My question still stands:
    IF you want to run a Wildcat with Harvin taking a direct snap, WHAT do you do with Favre?
    what the dolphins did with Pennington.
    Which was to put him at WR.

    =Z=
    [/quote]

    Yep... same thing they did earlier in the game with Favre when Harvin handed it to Peterson... it's fine as long as they run to the strong side but every now and again you're going to need to go weak down where the QB is and he's going to need to throw a block just to keep the D honest.
    [/quote]

    If they are going to use the wildcat than there is nothing wrong with putting Favre out there as WR.
    I swear people will find any reason to mock or criticize Childress.
    You can't just take Favre in and out of the game.
    You have to keep defenses honest or they will know what is coming.
    If Favre can't take it then he shouldn't be playing.

    The other place you can put him is as a 2-back.
    Line him up in the back field.
    You can fake handoff to him or hand it off to him and then a pass may be open down field.
    There are several things you can do but not using him as a WR at times is necessary to keep teams guessing.
    [/quote]


    Who is going to believe a fake to BF?
    Even if you are wrong and he does get the ball, you could stop and have a picnic eat your sandwich and then get up and run down BF before he got 10 yards.

    I have no problem bringing in a whole new set, a Wild cat team just for it.
    CT AD and pH should be the guys in this formation everytime.
    It is the most threatening.
    CT can throw.
    Or TJ if he is around.


    If I was any team in the NFCN, I would say "nothing illegal, but when Favre lines up anywhere other than QB he is fair game.
    He is no longer protected by QB kid glove rules.
    You get a hit on him or you will be packing your bags, remember, nothing illegal.
    He better be soar on Monday for lining up outside."

    That is just me!

    That goes for Cutler, Culpepper, or Rodgers.
    It is a chance to get a good lick in on them.
    The problem is they are not in the mentality to be blocking or really physical at all.

    Barnett for the Packers already, somewhat jokingly said, that he can't wait to hit BF after having to go through practice with that red jersey on all the time and not get the chance, he is licking his chops.

    Re: Vikings work on Wildcat

    The wildcat is just a fad.
    It will go the way of the single wing (which is what it really is).

    The idea of the wildcat is to catch the defense by surprise and force them into a situation they are not prepared for.
    I don't think that running it with Favre is smart, because I don't want him taking hits blocking or receiving.

    Stick to the run heavy WCO.
    Let's see lots of screens and play action passes to force the defenses into mistakes.
    Hell, you want to mix it up, there are other formations we can ressurect.
    Line up with AD in the backfield.
    Motion PH into the backfield.
    Direct snap to PH.
    PH and AD run left, Favre runs right and fakes a pass.
    Now PH and AD are running the option.
    PH can look for receivers downfield to pass.
    Not finding any, he can run the ball himself of toss back to AD.

    Probably pleanty of holes, I just pulled it out of my ass.
    But still, the point is that we have the weapons to do some creative plays.
    Nothing that would become a staple in our offense, but just enough to keep the defenses on their guard.
    We do NOT have the personnel to run the wildcat.

    We don't have the personnel to run the wildcat..
    You forgot a tiny tidbit..
    ALL THE TIME.

    I think it would be just fine if the Vikes, as a team ran a play or two of the wildcat per game.
    Among other things..
    it would help force the defense to play honest.
    I'm all for that.

    The last thing I want this team to do is to continue the vanilla play calling all the time (It wasn't completely vanilla last year..
    but still).
    Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(
