    Can MIA defend the WildCat?

    I know we practice against it but I am curious to see what happens when a team tries it on us...? Thoughts?

    Honestly it really depends on the team executing it because it really requires a special group of talent to pull it off effectivly. You have to have players that can effectivly block, pass, run, and recieve. How many teams are really built like we are?

    Jimmy Johnnson of FOX Sports also had an interesting view on this. According to him, it takes players w/out ego to run this. The RB is basically taking the QB out of the picture. IE: I don't think Romo would run this offense. He'd have TO (Team Obliterator) whining about not getting the ball.

    I don't know if Cable will run the direct snap to McFadden. I mean, even if they do, it's not the Wildcat that McFadden ran at Arkansas.

    I'm not sure but I imagine that the fins O plays against the D in a mock game. Therefore I'm fairly certain that the O will use the wildcat on our D.

    >> If that is true the wildcat probably won't be effective against the raiders (And god I hope we don't have to use it against them)


    Thanks to Zach8111 for the sigs.

    Holliday has already said that when they tried it in practice it didn't really work...so, our defense must be able to defend it adequately.

    Jimmy Jerkson is right. Pennington has been a great sport about this whole bit. I was talking to a guy at work about the Wildcat the other day (He's a Steelers fan like 99% of everyone around here. I am a Dolphins Fan. I am an island). The ideal QB for the Wildcat offense would be Kordell stewart. Stewart was a garbage QB but he could have been a decent pro if he had been used as "slash" his whole career. Unfortunately for him, he refused to go anywhere that wouldn't play him at QB.
