When it comes to the Wildcat, some of you need to remember that "The Wildcat" was something in the back of Parcells mind even before he came to Miami. It will not be dead. The Dolphins just need a back up option to Ronnie Brown if he gets injured. I think the stiff-necked media will be shocked to see it in action next year and will attack it as often as they can.
As far as the WildPAT, I think the Dolphins were trying to have a passing option with a running QB. It's a nice idea, but Pat White needs to bulk up and adjust to the NFL. After watching how little arm strength he had in our last game, I cannot understand what the heck our coaches were seeing in practice. If White could not do it in practice (as was reported numerous times) then you surely cannot do it in a game.
Eh, he's got the arm strength. He's just not doing something right. I read that they were messing with his delivery? Was this before or after he hit the golf cart? Because you don't just start messing with someone's delivery like that. If it was after the golf cart, then yeah, something's gotta change. Just from watching the one throw he made against Pittsburgh I can think of about 5 technical errors he made.
Feet weren't set, and he seemed to be rocking to the side as he threw it. This is panic...something we saw with Beck. The ball went straight into the ground which means he delivered it way late, or his grip on the ball is too tight...which makes sense if he's nervous.
His shoulder weren't pointing to the receiver, but rather parallel with the sideline.
Too many things wrong with that to correct...he's not a quarterback, and never will be. Convert him to whatever, but for goodness sakes, he's an emergency quarterback not a backup or starter.
