    Right.

    I don't see any downside at all in raising Tyrod's usage from 2 plays per season to 2 plays per game.

    As long as they are creative plays that make the defense defend something they haven't spent time preparing for. Read-option type plays, or even rollout run-pass options.

    Not sure I see a ton of upside either, but I definitely think it would a low-risk proposition.

    The league figured out the Wildcat in 2010. No need for gimmicks. It's an off year and the problem is glaring -- the offensive line.
    Steve Young.... reading your response... I could not help, but think of Steve Young.... Young is a classic example of what an opportunity and system can do for a player. Historically, NFL is loaded with players who were written off and became serviceable player or even a Hall of Fame player.

    Tryod is in the league for some time, and it wouldn't hurt to see what he has in store for us, especially we arent getting anything done offensively.

    I'd agree with this. I see some opportunities for some big plays though once teams start to commit to it.

    Just don't do it and make it a Donte Stallworth scenario where every time he comes on the field it's gonna be an end around without fail.

    are we talking about the wildcat? thats so 2010...

    Im not in favor of putting our backup QB out there as a WR/RB/Or anything. If he were good enough to be one of those positions, hed be playing it full time, in which case id be for it. Hes not the WR Doss/Brown/thompson are. Hes not the RB Rice or Pierce are. Hes not the QB that Flacco is. So what are we gaining?

    if were talking 1-2 plays... early downs... id still say its a waste of time for a gimmick. Tyrod isnt a top 5 skill player on this team. were not even getting our top players in positions to make plays and now we think going deeper down the depth pool is going to improve our chances? highly unlikely.

    if we lose 1 of the next 3.... sure throw him in there. seasons likely over anyway.

    Thoughts??

    Wrote this up earlier: http://russellstreetreport.com/raven...e-taylor-made/
    I agree. The offense if struggluing this year so why not throw some new stuff in to try and throw off defenses. Besides, I don't know why all teams don't add in the 2nd string on a few plays. If your 1st string goes down you have to live with this guy, so why not get him a few reps to keep him involved. I'm sure Green Bay wishes they did this. But I do get the argument that you only get so many possessions and that could throw things off.

    Re: Should Tyrod Taylor be included more often?

    Taylor? Maybe. That's certainly an option. But I'd rather see them just diversify things a little bit. It's become largely either 1) inside hand-off from the gun, or 2) drop looking to throw medium to long. My gut feeling... Caldwell's turned this offense in to something resembling the Colts offense with Peyton... except (love him as I do) Joe isn't Peyton, and this line isn't that line. For the love of God, throw in some misdirection pitches, some end-arounds, some quick WR screens, a shovel pass here and there, a few RB screens. Maybe a halfback option, even if you're 98% likely to wing it out of bounds, just to make DBs and LBs realize that they can't sell out right away. Don't get me wrong, I get that the O-line is flawed... but the offense is SO vanilla right now... SO predictable... it's brutal to watch at times. You pretty much NEVER see defenders get caught out of position, because they can read the play quickly off the snap and have NO hesitation. There's no half-second delay to see if something "different" transpires.

    Agreed. The read option now seems so 2012 as teams are learning to defend it. But as the Steelers did to us, I like a few wild cat/read option plays at their disposal. If the offense was clicking I'd say no, but the offense is sputtering.

    If Tyrod can catch and take a bubble screen or inside combo route for 20-30 yards then I'm all for it.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!
