    In the red zone it could still work (sometimes) and he knows how to teach the o line on how to run it, I wasn't implying well even run it half as much as he did in Miami but I think it could still work in the red zone with Pryor and the original wild cat dmc

    Seeing as most the teams in the NFL figured it and it isnt nearly as productive as it was when it first came out. I dont see why you would want to waste time with a scheme that has been figured out. It didnt work for the jets last year at all. I dont see why it would work now. Defenses have figured it out and everyone has moved on from it.

    Remember who you`re talking with now 77, the kid has Schefter posters all over his wall. Not Farrah Fawcett but Adam Schefter.

    I know I couldn`t resist, Farrah would have most likely appreciated the plug.

    I love this hire. I have faith in most of our coaching staff now.

    It's shaping up pretty nicely.

    HC- Dennis Allen
    OC- Greg Olsen (He's a question mark right now, but he's had success in the past and he's saying all the right things)
    DC- Tarver (He really impressed me in the last 6 or so weeks of the season. Given any reasonably talented defense and I think he can get us in the top third of the league)
    ST- April (One of, if not the best ST coach in the league at the moment. Something our Special Team's has really needed for a very long time)
    Senior Offensive Assistant: Al Saunders. (Always good to have someone with his experience and knowledge of the game on your team)

    Of course there are more to be named, but these are the ones that make me feel a lot better about the future of this organization.

    Two guys I really love this for right off the bat...

    Tony Bergstrom
    &
    Lucas Nix

    If you re-watch the last game, these guys do a solid job on that line at Guard. They got overshadowed because it was Pryor's first start, but these two looked like they can develop into something. Too early to tell what that something is, but Sparano can definitely help these guys out in the long run.

    remember when Knapp said "I love play-calling. It's an opportunity to play chess with the defensive coordinator."

    ^^ Greg Knapp isn't very good at chess
