So, it seems to me that the beauty of the Wildcat (splitting the traditional QB out wide) is that you can break from a standard huddle, with the guys who would make up a typical formation, and suddenly confront a defense with a tactically different alignment they have to quickly adapt to. The element of surprise would certainly be lost if, for example, we trucked out TJ on the handful of plays we ran from scrimmage in the Wildcat. Given the importance of being able to use your starting quarterback in the formation so as not to announce it, what are our chances realistically of running this formation and not putting Favre at risk? As I'm reading this morning's reviews, it seems that a lot of the same people who were thrilled to see us insert this formation are now questioning the decision to split Favre out wide. But, isn't that the whole point?
