The Wildcat in K.C.
August, 3, 2010
ESPNBLog

By Bill Williamson
The Kansas City Chiefs wasted no time in tinkering with the Wildcat formation Saturday. New offensive coordinator Charlie Weis dedicated an entire period to the formation.

Our sound-off question to Kansas City fans is does that notion excite you? Do you think the Wildcat (perhaps the WildChief) would work in Kansas City? Or do you think the Wildcat is passé and Kansas City should just keep its offense traditional.

With Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones and rookie receiver Dexter McCluster all Wildcat candidates, it could be an interesting wrinkle in Weis’ playbook. Hit my mailbag with your thoughts on how you think it would affect Kansas City’s offense. I will post some of your responses later in the week.

I honestly was wondering if TJ would fill the Ronnie Brown role. Yes, he's less agile... but can still pound it or hand off....

It will be interesting because there's a serious potential for success with Dex and JC on board.

I don't see this as something Haley and Wies would run on a regular basis like Miami does. I'm fine if they do break it out occasionally though.

Damn you, Charlie.

Part of the reason I was happy with the Weis hire is that I thought he'd steer clear of gimmicks like the Wildcat.

Complete waste of time. It's bad enough that we have a QB that doesn't know what to do with the ball, now we're going to ask RB's and WR's to make decisions on where the ball goes.

In our case, it should be easy for opposing defenses to stop, because there will be no concerns about the ball being thrown.

Heh, that went over real well vs. Oakland at home last year. Remember that? They ran a funky wildcat formation with that Ex Virginia QB for about three plays. Went over like a turd in the punchbowl.

Sure. Why not? What does the team really have to lose?

Not out of the cat, but Dex looks better throwing the ball than Cassel :-)

Well, we wouldn't run the WC the entire game, I'd imagine. Second thing to consider, is that we should have a very easy time running the ball this season based on our competition, so why not mix up the rushing attack to throw Defenses off?

Let's say TJ fakes a hand off to JC, and then pitches out to Dex around the side.... Before the snap, the Defense is looking at three viable rushing options. Maybe TJ plunges forward? Maybe he hands to JC or Dex up the gut with the other throwing a block as a mini fullback? Maybe one of our waterbugs shoots out to either side? Maybe they dump it for a five yard Tebow toss to Moeaki?

Possibilities are endless, and I say why not mix it up?

I dont mind if they ran a couple plays out of the WC in a game

I'm just waiting for some team to have 500+ yards one game running the Wing T just to watch the rest of the league trip over themselves trying to get the same results by running their version of it.
