Taxing, in the sense that it takes more time for the Oline to block the play. This is a fact.


Is it really that much more taxing than a QB snapping the ball taking three steps and handing the ball off.

If the QB is making his reads properly and quickly it shouldn't be longer than handing the ball off from under center. At the very least not so much longer that it is abnormally taxing on an O-linemen.

Has anyone actually done a comprehensive study on the time difference between the two?? Is there something besides opinion on that. Not attacking you, but you said it was a fact so I was wondering if there was something on this to prove it. You may be right. Just asking.

Ask Steve Smith.

He's the one who said he didn't.


The WR who wants the ball thrown to him in triple coverage??

Question. Why is Steve Smith's opinion on the read option more valuable than a guy like Tent Dilfer's who has been studying this the last 2 years??

you are forgetting the fact if Cam keeps the ball. And yes it does mean something. If you think 1 second or .5 second doesnt matter in the NFL then you have no idea.

Because he's actually part of this team and thus has a stake in whether we succeed or not.

Dilfer doesn't.

I bet he doesn't like running games either. Just a 'me' player who wants the ball thrown to his direction on every down. Fortunately Smith is just an employee that just needs to do his job and block down field.

time isnt the only variable, its space and speed also. . and furthermore its vector and not speed, there is a difference.

An offense that puts up 31 points in the SB and averages 35 points in the playoffs is unsuccessful.

Ok, Steve.

To Steve success means him catching 10 passes for 150 yards per game and never make the playoffs, not this making the playoffs and superbowl stuff. It's so ironic it's coming from a guy who plays for a team that hasn't been in the playoffs in almost 10 years.

I hope every reciever on this team thinks this way...the rest is total BS.
