I'm not going to take 1 data point and claim success or failure, but I think it is interesting that Denver yesterday went as close to a "spread option college offense" as any team has ever done in the NFL for an entire game and they shredded the Raiders for over 300yds rushing with Tebow going for over 100. It didn't seem they completely committed to it against the Lions, I think the Lions jumping out to the big lead had something to do with it. The chances of Tebow making out of this season alive seem remote at this point, but I did find it interesting.
I believe almost any sound offense can work with good athletes and execution. I just think it is an interesting argument point for the faction of football fans that think certain offenses can't work against better athletes or in the Big Ten.
Ever since I was a kid I was always intrigued with the idea that an NFL team could try running Nebraskas offense from the 90's. My idea was that you could install Nebraska Power Option Attack and invest the money normally reserved for qb's and put it into your offensive line. Then I would draft a qb each year in the 6th-7th rd since they wouldn't normally get drafted and just keep rotating them in and out as they got hurt without much drop off. My depth chart looked like this.
1st Tommie Frazier
2nd Tony Rice
3rd Scott Frost
4th Eric Crouch.
In any event if you can find the Broncos game next week it should be interesting to see what the counter for the Broncos is next week. If they get crushed then data point 2 will be a good counter against my whole post.
