Cool, if basic, stuff.  If you have a potent passing attack, though, you'll never really stop the read-option.

Thanks for posting.  Love Xs and Os.

Some very cool principles in that article. I've always viewed it as not "the flavor of the month" like Tomlin says but more as just another look. Just like the wildcat. You can run it effectively if you sprinkle it in 15-20% of the time like my Hawks do or the wildcat a couple times a game. What was sad to see, or good for teams like the Hawks and the team from Santa Clara, was that some of these lifer NFL defensive coaches were clueless. Like Krapernicks playoff game against Green Bay or Wilsons game against Buffalo in 2012. The defense looked totally lost and the defensive coordinators had nothin, couldn't even make adjustments.  

I'm a firm believer that a single high safety with the strong safety playing up towards the box, could effectively defend the read option. My Hawks can defend it cuz Earl Thomas has so much range/speed he can cover center field and we can bring up Kam Chancellor and use him like a spy.

No, you defend it by crying to league commissioners until it gets banned

I've been telling y'all for two years these offenses have put a premium on recruiting d linemen. You need 8 that can start.

This, with  smart safety play. Read your keys safety don't be a victim of play action. IMO All this Hurry up offense and read option  shows  is  most of today's college players are not students of the  game.

What do you think about Dan moving MSU to the HUNH, which seems to be where he's headed? We ran 52 plays in the first half last Saturday.

And let me say: I never said that HUNH should be illegal. I always contended that I was personally not a fan.

I like it for the very reason I posted earlier. It gives offense advantages in today's game and once it starts clicking will produce points. That's Mullen's style even back to his Florida days. He's just speeding it up a little more. To be honest I'm surprised it took this long for teams to actually start doing this. The NFL's two minute offense has always been effective which is why I wonder why teams didn't make this their base more.

I would guess because the increased number of plays increases the chances of the players to get injured and, in the NFL, that can be disastrous with only a 53 man roster. They talk about it wearing out the defense. I would imagine it increases the fatigue on the offensive linemen as well.
