I've seen many people make posts tonight talking about: "Imagine having Young in the backfield with Ronnie and Ricky." So what is your reasoning behind that? Are we gonna start running the option?

I'm just wondering why I keep seeing...

"Can you imagine Young back there with Ronnie and Ricky!"

Well, I am not one of those people, and not even a fan of VY... but having a moble QB helps your RBs out alot...

If you watch teams play Atlanta, when Vick hands of to Dunn, alot of the time Vick fake bootlegs after handing it off. Because teams are worried about the QB, they break containment of the RB... allowing the RB to get free. Also, like Texas does alot, you can fake hand it off to the RB, and run it with the QB. That threat makes it really hard for defenses to collapse on the play...

What he said.

I got a bit confused on who had the ball a lot of the times and had to second guess who had it, if the defense only does that 5 times a game, that will usually be 5 easy first downs.
