I just don't think it's sustainable nor a valid option to build your offense around.Yeah Kaepernick has done a good job of getting down before taking a big hit. But sooner or later he's going to need that drive sustaining, all important first down. And when he goes for that extra yard or so, "bam", someone's gonna light himup, just like RG3.Maybe that never happens, maybe CK goes on to be the greatest QB in NFL history, I just somehow doubt it. But regardless of if it happens to CK or not, the more QB's you have running that crap, the more likely it becomes. And considering TCE and all that it entails, I don't want my QB taking any unnecessary extra chances.Besides, there's a difference between gimmick and innovation. The 3/4, no huddle, the 2 minute drill were all innovations. The option read is nothing new to football, just to the NFL. But that's nolonger the case. It'll be interesting to see what happens from here on out.No doubt teams will copy some form of it next year. I just hope it's not us.
