People keep bringing up the idea of a Wildcat kind of offense. But I fail to see how that could possibly be a good idea. (I'm assuming Brady is healthy for the purposes of this discussion.) 1. Running a Wildcat with Brady on the field just sets him up to be hit hard. Using Brady as a WR is not an experiment that should be repeated. 2. Running a Wildcat without Brady on the field gets Brady off the field. I can not think of a single situation in which I wouldn't want Brady leading the Patriot offense. If the yardage is so short that you clearly want a QB sneak -- well, Brady is actually pretty good at carrying the ball in that scenario. If the yardage is any longer, you want one of the greatest passers in the history of the game to be on the field. That doesn't mean we can't have the occasional direct snap, halfback option, or whatever. But those plays should be used against offenses that are forced to respect Brady standing in the pocket, and hence are forced to respect every Patriot eligible receiver.
