Using your franchise QB as a running QB is what's stupid. Again, there's a reason you don't see it. Even with the Vick example, who did NOT suffer near the injuries RG has, no other HC/FO in pro football has used their franchise QB the way shanahan uses RG.

What amazes me, is after a season of horrific injuries (to RG) folks are still homers for the status quo. It just seems like common sense to limit the number of hits to this guy who we mortgaged the future on. I mean, answer me this: is it your opinion we cannot compete with a traditional offense? Why else would you risk your QB?

What Kyle did was creatively and effectively innovate. He showed that he can successfully implement original offensive concepts.

If people don't see this, and call what we did a "gimmick" instead, they are not appreciating the game of football. Or Kyle for that matter. What a shame.
SIR, until a Super Bowl has been won with your......Huckster Offense, it cannot be taken seriously!

That's a fair criterion which in no way obscures the history of the development of the game. I stand corrected.

Nah. Wasn't the old Houston Oilers one of the last teams to run that offense? I like the read option because it's highly successful and puts all types of stress on a defense.

Since the Oilers never won a Super Bowl, Warren Moon was just a gimmick.

As was Dan Fouts and the Air Coryell offense. Also, Dan Marino and the Marks Brothers were a gimmick.

Jamarcus Russell was a gimmick.

Heck, the Raiders are a gimmick.
