Like you, I'm giddy over 2-1, wishing Bruce Carter or Dez Bryant would have made "that play" to put us to 3-0. Just as much, I'm relishing in the ineptitude and disaster of our divisional brethren. Are you kidding me? 38-0? How glorious. RG0andIII. Philly headed to 1-3 shortly. Amen. But perhaps my favorite development thus far is the early implosion of the blasphemous read option. It ain't working too good, and I love it. Colin Kaepernick not only can't get the edge, he can't get back to the line of scrimmage. He was losing five yards a pop against Indy when they ran it, so they abandoned it, and he looks grossly lost since. It really hurts my heart. (Giggle) Terrelle Pryor got concussed. RG3 can't even do it right now because he got hurt doing it before. Vick is getting hammered in Kelly's communist offense, yards or not, as defensive coordinators are wising up fast. Russell Wilson is a real quarterback and doesn't rely on it, so the Seahawks still have it in their bag of tricks, but not as a staple. Not good news for Johnny Manziel and his ilk, or any team that was breaking bad that direction. I hoped and believed the league would catch up to this dumbed-down high school junk, but I sure thought it would take longer. Apparently, the key was fairly simple. Basically, you stay in a 4-3, move your end and tackle over a gap on the QB keep side, and drop the OLB on that side back a bit. Done. That's an oversimplification, I'm sure, but that's the nutshell version. Then, you brutally punish the quarterback whether he keeps it or not. In fact, that threat alone is influencing teams to get away from it. It's just not worth the risk, especially with the rewards drying up. Now that it's been schemed and neutralized, the 49ers have 10 total points in two weeks and are vowing to get back to their power run attack. Plus, such an offense requires TWO quarterbacks that can run it, so you're not bumping into walls if you lose your starter. A team has to install two offenses, just in case. It'll always work in college, where the talent differential is usually huge among teams, and players in general, on the field. But in the NFL, where everybody is good, it comes down to scheme, risk, health, and strategy. So I raise my glass high....to the impending abolition of this demonic practice! May it be banished to the memories of the Run-and-Shoot, Wing-T, Wildcat, and Parachute Pants. Salut!
