Wild Horses Can't be Broken



If there were ever a weekend that proved the Wildcat formation (and the like) isn't going anywhere anytime soon, it was this one.

Personally, I never really cared for, what I considered, a fad wrinkle in several (mostly struggling) offenses.  But last night the lowly Dolphins offense had an aggressive Jets defense confused all game.  And let's not forget the "Wild Horse" formation.  Moreno ran for a respectable 4+ yards a carry out of it against a top run defense, but it was Kyle Orton who benefitted most from it - picking apart the Pats with near perfection after trotting back under center.

 

Do any of you guys see us using this again?  Particuarlly with 3 fairly aggressive 3-4 defenses coming up in the next few weeks?  I'd actually be interested in seeing what Buckhalter could do taking the snap with Moreno as a wing (or vice-versa) and having Kyle take it from under center.  I don't love the idea of making this an every game wrinkle in our system- but it's hard to argue how it put our offense in the best rhythm we've seen this year.  Plus, while the formation itself was rather revolutionary, we didn't execute very many creative plays out of it.  I'd watch out for what we can do when we have (arguably) our most explosive back somewhere in the mix. 

 

How long will it be until another team starts running the Wild Horse?   This week?  The Browns are probably better off with Jamal Lewis just taking every snap anyway.
