Stewart AND Willams

If I remember correctly, Deuce McAllister's first carry as a Saint was with him and Ricky Williams in the backfield together. On a run around left end, Williams threw the block that cleared the way for a long TD run by Deuce.

I know it was college but last year WVU ran formation out of the backfield with Slaton/Devine it worked pretty well.

Excuse me? College? College? College? I love you man but college, especially from your own home state is pretty stupid to this argument don't you think?

Why not have some plays were we have both of them in the backfield as say split backs. I think this would be a good formation to have to try and fool people a little bit.

Because that doesn't work in modern day NFL.

You missed the first part of my statement. But it could work with Williams and Stewart.

A lot of people would have said the same thing about the Wild Cat.

Can you explain why it doesn't work?

Here is how it could work. If you look at why a basic screen pass works you will see that it is typically a blitz beater. If a D is blitzing and you fake the toss to say Stewart and then dropped the screen in to Williams and the non-blitzing defenders bite on the fake then you have Williams in space with room...that usually means a big play.

I know that Fox & Co. haven't liked the screen so far this year but I am hoping that they are just saving it for the playoffs. :cool:

Yeah...well the split back is a variation of a college set...the comparison isn't too absurd. :rolleyes:

It is typically more of a west coast style play...but I think it could work for Double Trouble...or whatever they are calling themselves these days. :ihih:

Well the wildcat is a version of single wing football which has always had a presence in football but just had a recent resurgence in the NFL and even on the Panthers play book. The thing is that single wing formations usually use a RB/FB combo not a RB/RB combo which exaggerated the wave of a 1 back offense in modern day NFL. The combination of Ricky and R Brown was largely used for gadget plays, FB/RB is what they usually line up in. Further info is here:

in a two back set someone is likely needed to block, and thats what Hoov does.

Line DeAngelo up at FB, toss to Stewart at RB, end around to Smitty who then heaves it to DeAngelo who is 15 yards past everyone by that time.

Jake lays out the middle linebacker for extra form points.
