WildCat? Might Be A Little Too Wild!


Brett Favre, at one time arguably the best football player in the league (which is an amazing feat considering the position he plays) has never been renowned as a skilled blocker nor an accomplished pass catcher.  So what gives?

Brett Favre is a liability on the field when the Vikings line up in the WildCat formation.  Assuming the Vikings have a player with the ability to pass the ball, Favre is not a legitimate receiving threat anywhere on the field and could be covered by just about every defender in the league.  As has been pointed out in other post and in comments sections on the Norseman, Favre is the last best person to lead block for anyone under any circumstance in the entire league.  His presence on the field while in WildCat seemingly negates any advantage gained.

So, what are the options?  Does Jackson see the field in relief of Favre for a package of plays each game.  Assuming the team keep both Jackson and Rosenfels as backups, this might be the least risky move.  What are other Norsemen's ideas on this subject?  How do you see the WildCat being utilized by the Vikes?
