Article claiming Panthers should NOT decrease read option usage next season

When we ran it and the amount we ran it absolutely was a problem early last year.

 

Agreed. I wouldn't mind running it occasionally, but definitely not as much as we did last year.

And in the right circumstances. Chud would not take what the defense gave, it's like it was scripted and Chud would call what he wanted to call, not what should have been called.

That's true as well. I rewatched part of the first Falcons game last night, and one particular read option play from the first quarter struck me as being very disjointed from the flow of the game. The intermediate passing game and I formation running game were working very well, and then suddenly we come out in a very obvious read-option play on 2nd-and-long and loses a couple yards and sets us up for a lousy 3rd-and-long.
