That's where the options have failed in the past.
If you can throw without it, I don't see why being able to use it wouldn't add a dimension that to the offense that makes it useful.
Hoofbite, you and me have really been on the same page recently.
I agree completely. It creates a wrinkle that did not previously exist to the same degree. There is really no answer to this other than defenses getting smarter and faster.
There is no answer for a quarterback who can run and pass accurately. Simple as that. Teams weren't able to stop Michael Vick from running, but the advantage they had was that he wasn't a capable passer. The upcoming generations of QBs are far more capable.
