I agree with the addition though that even though it is stoppable, when properly executed it can be as much of a staple in a playbook as a power run or deep ball. Some people make it sound like there is a magic bullet on defense to stop it, there isn't. DCs will study and learn what personnel package works best against it, then the OCs will have to find ways to attack the defense when its in that package. it is just part of the ongoing chess match in the nfl. Next year will be interesting to see if it proliferates, or whether the same few teams run it into the ground.
