Post Hyde5: Don't Kill The Wild Cat
Yep, another WC thread. Since the Jets did a good job of stopping the WC, I would say that they spent time during the week working on it.

Quote:
1. The stats on the Wildcat in Sunday's loss to the Jets: Eight plays, five runs for two yards, two penalties and a pass incompletion. That's led to the volume going predictably up to kill it. Here's another thought: More judicious use of it.

On Sunday, with Chad Henne hot, you ride that. In Minnesota, near the goal line, with Brandon Marshall matched against smaller and weaker cornerbacks, you go to that instead of the Wildcat.

But do away with it completely? Why? Look how effective the Jets were with it Sunday. They showed it has a place, though with Brad Smith in the role the Dolphins hoped Pat White would be the Jets also showed what the Dolphins are lacking. Which is the hint of a pass element to it.

Three years into running it, they're still one-dimensional with Ronnie Brown running it. That's no fault of Brown's. But as the Dolphins play New England - the team against two years ago whom they sprung the Wildcat on - the Wildcat needs re-thinking, not deep-sixing. In a certain situation, against a certain team, it still has a place.

Great. We'll use it when we need a spark instead of pulling our best playmakers off the field. Use it when needed. When Henne under center is working and we are mixing it up, don't use it. It's not that hard to figure out Henning.

It most certainly has a place. Henning just doesn't know when/how to use it.

Yeah I'm not sure anyone is completely up to killing it altogether, but when you have an OCoord who is just absolutely horrible at implementing it at the right time, it gets frustrating!

Watching that game Sunday night nearly made me cry... we'd be moving the ball fine and dandy and he throws in a double reverse or some sort of retarded trickery that just is not needed.
