    Yes. It was only good in the 2008 season.

    I would like to see it used in the Red-Zone only, with 65% of the time being a pass play and with a tackle eligible option as an added wrinkle along side a big tight end. The pkg has become to boring and predictable and in IMO if it is not going to be used to trick people effectively - don't use it. It is my hope that our failures with that pkg are not a clue of things to come.

    No. But it's on the endangered species list, right next to the 2TE package. I think our 3WR 1TE set is our best group right now, and I'm still trying to figure out why Bess wasn't in the game on 4th and 4.

    Use it in games we're struggling on offense. Otherwise shelve it. Bring it out just enough for teams to practice against it. My opinion.

    Needs to be taken out behind the shed.

    I'd use it on a 2 pt conversion attempt.

    I'd use it sparingly. Don't mess with the flow of the offense just to bring it in. It can be a nice change of pace against certain defenses.

    I would be willing to put it out of our misery. I just hope Sparano is smart enough to tell Henning to can it. Then again, if he were that smart, he would have fired Henning in the offseason.

    Hopefully, unless the team just enjoys killing drives.

    That's just one writer's opinion and means absolutely nothing. The Wildcat would have won the game (or at least gave a shot at OT) if we used it during the final four plays, so I can hardly discount an offensive scheme that is used sparingly and often at exactly the wrong moment.

    Tony Sparano says no chance in hell.

    Then he's not that smart after all.
