    Coaches have always tried to implement the R-O it in some shape or form.Randall Cunningham-Kordell "slash" Stewart-Michael Vick. Now Wilson-RGIII-Colin Kaepernick. Wildcat is pretty much a gadget play.Miami had the right personel at the right time to use it longer than any pro team would dare.

    This year and next defensive Co-ordinators will slow down the R O down. It wont be reduced to the wildcat but it will be slowed down by the methods above.Teams must make the decision on how much they want to risk their QB,the most important position on the team.

    Jets grabbed Geno Smith I'm guessing to implement the butt fumble read-option.

    I am hoping that as teams shut it down at the NFL level in the next few years, that there will be a trickle-down effect to the NCAA and to HS where it begins to fade out at those levels as well.

    There is entirely TOO much emphasis on the QB-as-human-highlight-film-wannabe at those levels right now. I prefer having great athletes at ALL skill positions and running a more traditional pocket-distribution offense. QB (passing) skills are eroding among young players today.

    Now that Tannehill has started using the read option, it seems clear the Dolphins think it is a challenging offense.
    "I want guys who want to make an impact on and off the field. Good human beings. Guys who want to get better. Guys who want to improve. They want to be great, want to win. Those types of guys we can work with every day." --Joe Philbin
