Re: 4-3 or 3-4 vs the read option

Re: 4-3 or 3-4 vs the read option 


Yeah, I wondered what happened to the "spy" concept on defense.  Sure, the spy better be faster and quicker than 10 years ago, but there's nothing really new in life (and sports), just packaged in a different way.  If Kaepernick is still running for 50+ yard TDs four or five years from now, I'll tip my hat.  But somehow I doubt it.

DW,

I doubt Kaepernick will be running for almost 200 yards per game 5 years from now either. But I would bet that he'll still be a very good NFL QB who's a threat to run, and I bet there will still be versions of plays where young QBs have an option to throw, run or pass.

There's nothing new in the game, but the game always evolves.

Browns used to have a LB (#94) from an SEC school (NOT Big Money) that was a good spy. I forget his name but he was here in '05 or '06 and was decent in a 3-4.
