    Agreed, should be planning the next play, keeps it moving, liked watching him run on the field barking the next play

    I totally agree with this. Sanchez has taken it to the next level.

    The Wildcat was a kitten today.

    I'd prefer to see it used for a series and let the team get used to it for a few plays. The herky-jerky substitutions made my head spin. QB's have to get in a groove and that disrupts everything. But Sanchez didn't seem all that bothered.

    The Announcers made a big deal about opposing teams having to prepare for it. I'm not sure how much that's true. I don't see that as the advantage they are making it out to be.

    All in all, with Sanchez playing well, the gimmick stuff is just not needed. And maybe it even is a detraction since it takes Sanchez off the field.

    The Wildcat was useless today. Somebody explain to me why we are taking Sanchez out after he makes a good throw to bring in the wildcat for a play and possibly ruin his rhythm? It made no sense. Then, we have a 4th and 1 and we don't use the wildcat (the perfect time for it) and instead we try and fake a play to draw the defense off-sides (which never works).

    That delay of game penalty at the one really pissed me off though, watch the clock Tebow...
    The delay of game was Conner's fault. He lined up on the wrong side. Rex pulled him right after that.

    Not to mention it takes away from the mental focus of being quarterback when you switch back and forth..

    And what about stamina issues? its hard work stock blocking for 6-8 seconds..

    Sanchez needs to come off the field when they run the Timcat.

    My take... we don't need it even one bit. It's only good for a distraction from the other teams preparation if it even is one...

    Agreed.

    And is it just me here or does having #6 at wideout make the wildcat easier for a defense to defend?

    Fair enough, I didn't catch that.

    As long as Sanchez can handle it I think it is a positive. It is a change of pace, forces other teams to think more instead just attacking, and we haven't seen anything yet. They can do so much particularly with both sanchez and tebow on the field. Lining up tebow all over the place, or running an option pass. Going to be a fun year.

    It seems like the times they should have used Tebow, they didn't. ON that 4th and 1 where they pretended to go for it then called in the field goal unit, that's where having Tebow might be of some help, but they didn't use him. Inexplicable.

    It added a surprise element into the offense. When you have Tebow & Sanchez on the field at the same time, it shakes up the defense because you don't know what they're going to do. I loved it.

    Sure you do.

    You know there's a 99% chance that Tebow takes the direct snap and runs up the middle.

    I don't understand what's so confusing about the wildcat.

    Seems like pretty straight forward stuff.

    I'm waiting for later in the season. I want to see more sweeps to Mcknight & a few Tebow throws to shake things up.

    A player like Kerely or McKnight would be more effective then Tebow. Tebow isn't explosive enough and doesn't have a quick step. Tebow is down hill with a running start type of runner. I think its too much to ask for a QB to look for holes behind the line as a back. Just make him a back or trade him.
