    It really is an interesting concept... we showed a pass out of this formation against the Texans, but no doubt you could just have MM do a straight qb run as well and not put your real starting qb at risk of injury....also Tanny was a WR at A&M and so if they don’t respect him as a WR he could burn them

    Will be interesting to see if we come with it again...

    Yeah, I'm definitely thinking there was a reason they put this on tape vs Hou. Vrabel is planning some trickery

    I'd prefer Mariota stay on the bench. Dude's bad luck.

    Seriously though, we've been one of the hottest offenses in the league without his, umm.... talents. Any pass he throws is a pass that would've been better thrown by Tannehill. And honestly I'm not even convinced he's a better runner either. It's the playoffs so I'm not overly concerned about Tannehill getting injured on a run. It's do or die time.

    Busting out some new "wrinkle" where Mariota could potentially throw the ball... in a playoff game... against a pissed off Patriots team... in Foxborough. IDK. I don't like it.

    I sure didn't understand it. Tanny might have been a WR in college, but he's not as good as our 6th string WR on the team. A double pass is the only thing I can see developing from this formation.

    Could just be as simple as a distraction that Pats have to spend time gameplanning for ... we may not even intend to use it

    Vrabs showed that wrinkle last week to give the next team extra work. That’s it. We shouldn’t see it again.

    There is definitely some value of having them both on the field at certain times, even if it's just as a decoy. This is the game we need to pull out all trickery, so I can definitely see us trying a play or two with both of them on the field at the same time.
