    Yes we saw the wildcat last week with some success. We were actually moving the chains with our running game on some drives.

    We have two good backs, why not let them earn their pay, especially EzE.

    Put the rock in their guts and force their will on the Steelers' pass rush happy Def.

    It's not college and pro football is not conductive to running a true option based offense. The advantage is so small. This team can barely block and there's no way the guys we have could pull off the triple option.

    Dallas would need a Pez dispenser filled with QB's to play a full 60 minute game. The DE's would start wearing the insignias on their helmets for ever QB that was shot down during the game.

    2 days should be enough to install a deceased style of offense that nobody on the team has ever run, and the coaches have never coached, right?

    I'd LOVE to see an NFL team successfully run the triple option on the nfl. Would be SOOOOOOO fun to watch. Not going to happen but I would love it

    You would need a QB to be somewhat of a threat to run the ball, which we really don't have right now. The trickery isn't the answer.

    I’m all for trying to trick a defense that is gonna out man you
    Triple option might work once
    This is a well coached defense

    Can’t wait for more double reverses and screen passes that go nowhere!

    Maybe not triple option -- no one on the roster knows how to properly run that -- but definitely more wildcat/single wing. Go full 2008 Dolphins, add an extra blocker, and just play power football. You can add a simple dump pass in for when they starting really stacking the run.

    they do A very similar thing in Baltimore..its hybrid of that WC and triple options etc it worked for while but its being exposed, still hard to stop but if they get down 10points and are forced to throw , hard for them to catch up..

    its doable in short unexpected bursts..i say why not lets have some fun..throw it all out on the field..make the better teams coming in to stomp us play the entire play book..

    really because ravens nearly hug 300 rushing yards on that defense, as good as it is seems like they can be run on..will we win , no but we can make those DEs and LBs run all game, why make it easy..

    Tire out the Def and keep Ben off the field.
