Options work against undisciplined DL's - they work against players that are "all about me". Now in HS, there are lots of those - less in college - and very few in the NFL. Remember, the 32 NFL teams should have the cream of the crop.
The only game the readtard option worked on was the Saints game. And their D is rather poo poo. And chances are, if Payton is still on the sidelines it doesn't work that game either
