DWC...why would they have an agreement NOT to run the wildcat? It's more likely that Soprano doesn't want to help teams to game plan for it. That's why they wouldn't let reporters give any details when they first did it in practice.
They made the agreement because this is a practice game and Lewis didn't want to waste precious practice time preparing for a specialized formation that he will not see in the regular season.

I'd say that is a fairly fair assumption for the scrimmage.
Rewatching the Bengals game and the Bengals blitzed on all but one play when the first teams were on the field. Of course, the line needs to handle it...but jeez, we give them no wildcat and they thank us by performing a blitzkrieg? Unless, of course, Rex asked for it (Holy conspiracy, Batman!)
I noticed that too. It was apparent that we went very vanilla on both sides of the ball. It seemed like they threw the house at us every play.
