Do you think the NFL will continue to evolve into more of a read option league with more and more mobile quarterbacks? Or is it a short term trend which will eventually be shut down once opposing defensive coordinators figure it out like the wildcat?
Personally I think its here to stay and will become a bigger and bigger part of the league over the next decade plus. A vast majority of high schools are playing spread/read option type offenses these days, and more and more colleges are going to it so more prospects are coming into the NFL perfectly suited for this style of play.
I think teams like the Panthers, 49ers, Redskins, and now the Seahawks are starting the future of the NFL. Personally, I love it. I think its the most entertaining style of football there is. Even though I hate the 49ers I love watching their offense. And the Seahawks offensive philosophies the last couple months have been my favorite in our history. I especially love it when you combine the read option with a smash mouth philosophy such as ours.
