Ok, so I know that one of the hot topics on the board lately has been about the use of Denard Robinson. With the rise of Tate, many have wondered how we could get the electric Robinson on the field to make use of his talents.
I am in no means an expert, I don't know much about how certain schemes work against certain defenses and whatnot, but I was wondering if Rich has ever run a play like this, or if it could possibly work.
Basically, it's a double option. The slot receiver comes in motion before the snap, and as he is on his way across, the QB calls for the ball. When this happens, the Tate will make a read as though it is a normal zone read (looking at the end), but would be doing this with Denard as the first option. If the end crashes, Tate runs around with the slot receiver being used as the pitch option. If the DE stays at home, Tate gives to Denard who then runs down the line with the RB parallel as the pitch option.
