My guess is:

The players in the NFL are all faster and well coached. They would never bite on the fakes and the linebackers would track it down and blow it up before it ever got started.

With the speed and size of the defenders in the NFL you'd see Q.B.'s getting killed on a regular basis.

One of the goals in NFL offenses is to protect the Q.B. Teams do whatever they can to keep defenders away from their Q.B., running the option would totally defeat that purpose.

Plus, with the salary cap, and Q.B. salaries the way they are, you don't want your 7 million dollar a year player getting his head kicked in on every down.

Just a guess though. I know KB wrote a very good post about this topic some time ago but I'm too lazy to try and find it...:lol:
