Watching the league evolve is an interesting thing. The 3-4 D which resulted in TE becoming more prominent as the short pass attack offense looks for LOS mismatches. Are we witnessing another evolution, an evolution that goes into history where offenses ran first, and often, before throwing the ball? Way back to Wing-T football. Wasn't it Marv Levy who used it here one season when he didn't have a passing QB? But I digress, back to the evolution.
Think about a Heisman and National Championship QB in Tebow. Think about the Wildcat in it's infancy a short time ago. Think about Tyler Thigpen in KC. Think about the safeties in the league now, a bunch of speedy lightweights who a powerful back runs over. Are we seeing teams who have a QB with running ability attack by the run? Talk about throwing a monkey wrench in the TV lords carefully applied planned passing attacks to keep watchers glued to the set. Just a few minor rule changes an presto! bingo! Maybe Tebow is going to bring about a return to running option football to the pro's that at first glance seems unlikely. But option football is exciting, and that was why rule changes favorable to passing the ball were implemented, excitement to a tv audience.
I don't really remember being excited about the Chief's the year they ran it, but I remember Oklahoma in the sixties and seventies. I don't play Madden, but I would think you could take a Billy Sims led Oklahoma team and beat almost everyone. So anyway is it possible we see another evolution in today's NFL? Go Chief's
