Re: Cowboys Installing Wildcat, Is EA?

A lot of you are forgetting that EA had the Wildcat in the Madden 09 and scrapped it last minute.

If the Wildcat is reinstated, I think EA needs to counter it with the ability to see what players are in the game again like in 08. Last year we could see what positions were in for example 2 WR 2 TE and 1 RB, but this year if the Wildcat is in we should be able to see
RB Ronnie Brown
RB Ricky Williams
TE Anthony Fasono etc.

Re: Cowboys Installing Wildcat, Is EA?

Also there seems to be a lot of gripping from the community when people use the Raiders in Madden, and when the wildcat is implemented the Raiders will be VERY dangerous if EA doesn't have a good way to stop it in place. Michael Bush and Darren McFadden can both throw effectively. I feel that the Raiders wrongfully get downgraded sometimes in the game because they are a good "Madden Team", and I dont want players abusing the Wildcat which in turn leads the Raiders to be lowered more than they should be to slow them down.

Re: Cowboys Installing Wildcat, Is EA?

Because of the "Everything you see on Sundays" mantra, it should be in the game(Unfortunately, because I hate seeing in the NFL-but that's another discussion), but unless they make dramatic improvements to the Defensive A.I., its the kind of thing that could break the game and become another Super Exploit.

I'll tell you my take on it.


First, we need to understand where the offense came from. The Dolphins installed it, and called it the 'Wildcat' because it is a college offense and the RB they used to execute it (Ronnie Brown) played his college football for the Auburne Tigers. I'm sure most people knew this. But the offense itself was used by the Arkansas Razorbacks who called it the 'Wildhog".

But, Miami bascally took a few core concepts from the West Virgina offense as well & combined it with the 'Wildhog' as used by the Razorbacks (in an effort to add a few wrinkles, and get more production).

Now, this offense was being deployed by the Razorbacks because they did not have a QB who could get the football downfield on a regular basis. Any single or double read offense in my opinion stunts the growth of a QB, and is not designed to further or advance his development in a traditional pro style offense. The Razorbacks were trying to compensate for the lack of good QB play, while taking advantage of Darren McFadden's skill set.

The Dolphins had a good QB in Chad Pennington, so the use of this formation by Miami was no more then slight of hand, or good old fashion trickery. It worked for a while, defenses caught onto it & began to shut it down.

Let me be clear, if any NFL team drafts a QB...they'd better focus on his development as a QB, and not some gadget, trick offensive play specialist.

If you can't read defenses, and make tough throws under pressure consistantly...you can't play QB in the NFL. Not for long.

No disrespect to the wildcat, or any other cat. Imo, Pat White has the ability to play QB in the NFL and win championships.But I don't get paid to scout players...so take that comment fwiw...lol

I agree 100% with your statement about Pat White. He is really performing great in the combine. I said this for a while Pat White is going to be the truth. The Kid can throw.

Now on the Wildcat. What dangerous about this offense is the fact you don't lose a player on the play, so lets say you do have a QB like Vick or White running the wildcat. Now your QB is your Runner where in other plays he was just handing it off then out of the play, but him being the runner you now have that extra blocker. Now the number are all even up on the play.

The Wildcat can be a real pain in the a55 with the right personal.

Re: Cowboys Installing Wildcat, Is EA?

I agree with your latest post in this thread Guil. Truthfully, I don't foresee the Cowboys running this offense next year. But hey, we did see an option with Patrick Crayton last year where he then passed the ball to Owens downfield (resulted in an incompletion).

My opinion: you only run the wildcat if you have weaknesses at the QB position or you just want to add a wrinkle to the offense. For example, I don't anticipate any team with a franchise QB running the wildcat: Colts, Patriots, maybe Saints, etc.

If I'm not mistaking and I very well could be, I don't think the Dolphins ran that offense until they played the Patriots. I looked at is pulling out all of the stops to get the W against a team who had recently dominated them.
