    The Decline of the Wildcat

    Against NE:
    5 runs for 100 yards, 3 TD. 20 ypp
    1 pass for 19 yards, 1 TD. 19 ypp

    Against SD:
    10 runs for 48 yards, 1 TD. 4.8 ypp

    Against Houston:
    5 runs for 19 yards. 3.8 ypp
    1 pass for 53 yards, 1 TD. 53 ypp

    Against Baltimore:
    6 runs for 4 yards. .66 ypp

    In total:
    26 runs for 171 yards and 4 td's. 6.57yyp
    2 passes for 72 yards and 2 td's. 36

    This just shows what happens when teams get film on a gimmick offense.

    It's far from a gimmick it's nothing more then another formation. Analysts and anyone else for that matter that thinks the Wildcat is the reason our offense is doing so well knows nothing about football. Aside from the Wildcat we still have been scoring on opposing defenses and been doing it pretty convincingly.

    The Wildcat is nothing more then a formation. I'm sure you will see it this Sunday and I'm sure it will work a lot better then it did last week.

    I'd hate to have to tell my fans that we were beaten by a 'Gimmick Formation'.

    Gee, I wonder where you got this from? Real classy. Youre a good poster on here. I would expect more from you than plagurizing posts/threads from other people

    I find it hilarious when people try to call the formation a gimmick play. It truly shows how little they understand about offensive formations... Refer to the anaolgy, kids should be seen but not heard.

    No disrespect to the Bills fans...

    The Wilcat Formation is mostly a "Running Formation," it can work well against Defenses that are "NOT" effecient against the run...

    Baltimore's Defense LEADS ALL 32 TEAMS against the RUN... They are # 1 on all run categories....

    We just need to see where Buffalo's run D is against the run to give you an idea if the Wildcat will work or not....

    What's your point with this unoriginal post? We didn't win or lose any of those games because of that formation. We won and lost based on whether our D decided to show up and clock management. The wildcat is just another formation, and a fairly successful one against all but the best rush defense in the league. I'm glad other teams are so concerned about a formation that accounts for exactly 7.8% of our plays.
