You do realize that the QB doesn't keep the ball on an option, right? He has the option of keeping it, or lateraling it to the RB if they come after him. He can even run a reverse to a WR.
If they key on Cam, he pitches it to DWill or Stewie. If they play off, he can run it or toss a pass to a TE. There are several options, hence the name of the play.
Well there you go. Gave some information to back up your hypothesis. Nice job with that part. Unfortunately, you are still off base as to why we do not run our Spread Option. The Jets game is still a glorified practice. The only time Cam will cross the line of scrimmage is on a scramble. If then.
During the regular season this play is a staple in our Offense. Not so much during preseason. Just too much wear and tear on Cam.
I admire your spunk. Don't ever loose that. You may just want to temper that spunk with a few moments of reflection on where we are at the moment. We have yet to prove ourselves out in the real world. Running Cam willy nilly in the preseason is counter intuitive to sustained long term growth.
