Haven't seen a read-option play at all on the last drive and this one.

Throwing into double coverage when you are up 13 is ridiculous.

Watch next year that nonsense will be nonexistent. It's the wildcat effect.

Maybe not next year, but eventually it will lose effectiveness. Defenses will get smaller and faster; Coordinators will find a way to scheme for it. Once that happens, we'll see a return to smash-mouth running backs knocking over tiny linebackers line bowling pins, and then the pendulum will swing back the other way.

Offenses change, and defenses adapt. It's the circle of life, Simba.

Teams will be short lived with the read option. Look at RGIII. Teams can't risk the face of the franchise. It will be used as a tool to help a young team win while their young QB learns to be an NFL QB. We already saw CAR try to move away from it. Heck Seattle is limiting the reps of it.

Exactly.. I think it will be longer lived than the wildcat because of the play action element off of it.. but it will not be a featured offense as most quarterbacks do not have the leg, mind and arm talent combo to pull it off. The guys that do will be battered early enough in their careers that their windows to effectively run it will shorten. The financial aspects of the game will put pressure against it as well, highly paid QB's vs extra hits due to the option game.

Now.. I will find it curious how a guy like Collin Klein's draft stock will be affected by this latest fade.


I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I am amazed at how effective the read-option has been. Its a design for small time college teams that don't have the talent to play conventional ball. Navy has been very effective with and big name teams hated playing Navy because the game plan was so unconventional from the norm. It is a weird wrinkle seeing it in the pros as an effective tool. I honestly think the best counter for the option is a vanilla defense, to go light on the blitz and stay disciplined.

In a way, it is an answer that is so basic it is easy to miss I guess.

I think people are confusing the read option with QB's who are able to scramble when they need (or want) to.

Thank you.

Since some read-option elements made it into the NFL, every play-action (out of the shotgun) is called a read-option play, all of a sudden.

The last couple of drives of the game, the Seahawks used little to none of their vaunted read-option offense. They did, however, hand it off out of the shotgun quite a bit and Wilson will always take off when he has the chance.

Mobility is not an offensive gameplan or type. Mobility is just something a quarterback has. And QBs like Wilson and RGIII are just very adept at using that mobility to their advantage.

I think part of Seattle's success was that Atlanta went into a lull. It actually felt like our game against Indy where they had no business coming back on us, but the play-calling on offense and defence by Atlanta opened the door.
