    sounds like a bunch of crap.
    we dont even know who are wr's are or even are starting rb.
    if i were the coach i would play to my players strengths and we dont even have half of the players on th o side of the ball yet.

    Last thing I want is to have Tannehill go down. No thanks.
    This quote is near proof in itself due to all the marquee quarterbacks' lack of the read option. I want the kid to develop into more of a pocket passer and polish his skills in that department more than anything, he has already proved he shines under pressure due to his athleticism, he was the most accurate QB under pressure for a few games last season, and I believe he finished in the top 5. We need to utilize his athleticism in roll outs and escaping under pressure to find the bigger play like Roethlisberger...not the read option. No thanks. Possibly in some situations, but definitely as an alternative package only to confuse defenses.

    Surely they will only use in certain situations. Make the other team prepare etc. Any QB who runs this more times than not will go the way of RG and his knee.

    10 years ago *no one* was using the spread in the NFL. Surely, that's "near proof in itself" that it's worthless.

    You must be correct, because history proves that the athletic read option quarterback have more success than the traditional pocket passer. Mmkay.

    Spread was used in 2002.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    -- Joe Philbin 01/12

    I think dolphone's point was that a lot of people didnt think the spread could be widely implemented and used as extensively as it is nowadays.

    as long as it doesn't become to Philbin and Sherman what the Wildcat was to Sparano and Henning why not? I mean, Green Bay does use the athleticism of Aaron Rodgers to their advantage quite a bit. Maybe he's not scrambling but he does get a lot of run pass options. Hell Houston did a lot of that with Matt Schaub before his foot injury as well.

    How bout the Qb run option offense where the Qb just takes off running if he sees nothing? That seems to work great.
