Re: Brandon Marshall in the WildCat
I think we finally ahve a QB and a #1 reciever and we don't need the wildcat. SKin it and make some boots.
Just because you bought a new sports car doesn't mean you have to stop using the fuel efficient compact car.
I don't want to see the new Ferarri totaled by some D-lineman on a gimick play. Remember when Trent Green got knocked out blocking on a reverse for Ginn. Or Pat White was knocked out on the sideline..
Horrible examples. Those guys were going to get hurt regardless of what play they ran and everyone knows it. Green had mush for brains, and it was only a matter of time before something happened. Pat White was on a "traditional" roll out play...and we all knew he was going to get hurt as well.
The odds of Marshall getting hurt while running a reverse (which did quite often in Denver) are just as good, if not less, then running a route over the middle on a "traditional" play.
Besides, I wasn't suggesting using Marshall on Wildcat plays anyway, I was just saying there is no reason...absolutely no reason to "shelf" the formation/plays.
