Not good. I was afraid of this when we hired a 60 year old "experienced" guy. No vision of the future and stuck in the 90's way of doing things.

If you go away from the read option you are taking away one of our biggest assets and handicapping Cam.

He must have just finished watching game tape of our first 6 games or so....This is good. Just sprinkle the read option in. Notice he said staple of the offense. Not completely going away from it.

I exaggerate but

The most dangerous hits a QB takes are in the pocket, because he's more likely to not see what's hitting him.

He never mentioned taking it away as a whole, but to not use it as a base offense, a la chud.... Did you watch the first half of this season?

If we REALLY want to protect the quarterback, we'll install the single wing offense.

True, but a quarterback is more guaranteed of a taking a hit on a read-option play. Sacks and hits off pressures happen, but you tend to keep your guy clean more often than not. I just have some hesitation about using it all the time after watching a guy like RG3 come in and play some of the most exciting football ever, and leave the field a hobbled mess with a torn everything.
