Controversial opinion: the read option should not be totally abandoned

Recommended Posts



I never thought it should be COMPLETELY abandoned at all, but it should definitely NOT be our BASE offense like it is now, Chud just went full braindead on this offense

It's a high risk, high reward play. If it works you're almost guaranteed at least 5 yards, if it doesn't you're essentially giving up a sack. It has it's place as a legit nfl play if you have the qb for it.

Agree, the read-option is a good wrinkle when used at the right times during the game... has to be setup by a good running game.

We need to establish a power running game like in our glory days. Especially if we still have Williams, Stewart and Tolbert on the roster next season.

But yes, still break out the read option every once in a while. If you have a QB that absolutely dominates that scheme then why not catch some teams off guard with it?

I just feel like our read option is so vanilla compared to the Redskins Read option. I also think Chud should've fully dived into running it out of the pistol formation like the Skins. Especially with our backs, and it provides great protect, when u run the fake out of it.

yep. agreed. it would be a lot more effective running it out of the pistol. i'd also incorporate a lot of no-huddle, hurry up offense when running it and allow cam to switch up the play calls on the line based on what the defense is scrambling to set up in hurry up mode.

the read option isn't the problem. it's the play calling and running of the offense that is the problem. it's the patchwork oline. it's having a sophomore QB starting (complete with the occasional brain farts and bad throws that comes with inexperience). it's having WRs make dumb mistakes. it's having a defense that gets soft at the end and puts the offense in bad positions.
