So We Threatened To Use Wildcat in the AFFCG

6 posts in this topic

This is the first I heard of that but Tedy Bruschi said it on EPSN's webpage.

[b]Mike:[/b] Another aspect of note with the Ravens is the usage of the no-huddle offense. That's a little bit of a change for them. The offensive line isn't a strong suit.

[b]Tedy:[/b] And building off what we saw last week against the Cardinals with cornerback [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13980/patrick-peterson"]Patrick Peterson[/url] in the Wildcat (what they call "Pat-Cat") [b]-- last season in the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game, during the entire TV timeout at 12:49, the Ravens had backup quarterback [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14163/tyrod-taylor"]Tyrod Taylor[/url] out on the field[/b]. They wanted to see how the Patriots would react to seeing that. When the cameras came back, and the timeout ended, Joe Flacco ran back out because I don't think the Ravens liked what they saw. But it's still there, and with them seeing the "Pat-Cat" formation, maybe they use that a little bit instead of just having it as a ploy.

Did anyone else know this? Does anyone think we'll see any wildcat action with Tyrod this season???

I hate the wildcat. But I wouldn't be against seeing once or twice this Sunday. Something to catch em off guard.

I agree. Changing up the looks to try and catch someone off guard is always worthwhile but I don't want it to become something very common.

Interesting to say the least..Would have been fun to see for a play or two.

Yeah, funny how things like that happen behind the scenes. I really want to know why they backed out of it. Probably just didn't think it was the right time.
