I have posted this in many threads, but essentially I believe la Michael is going to play wingback, at first on 3rd down packages. I see AJ split wide left, and La Michael split wide right of alex. Ball is snapped, instant look at AJ, then slot guy(Mario/ crbtre), and then if covered, a quick shovel or pass to La Michael, who turns the essential lateral into a 3rd down run for the first down. Also expect to see him in on every play in RZ. Our weak link is no secret, it is 3rd down and RZ. LaMichael and Aj are the answer, and if AJ doesn't sign, then it is Moss split wide, and La Michael split wide rt of alex. Obviously, the reads are going to have to be lightening fast. And if open at choice #1, pass goes there. If open at choice #2, pass goes there. If neither open it goes to La michael for his YAC and breaking tackles for first down. Actually I see him used on 1st down also, exactly the same way. Vernon will be used when opposition D starts keying on L wideout, L slot, and LaMichael. Then the 40 yrder to vernon...maybe more if lucky.
Sure LaMichael has lots of tape of him running between the tackles. But that was college. Up here, I just don't see him running between the tackles. Of course I said the same thing about Reggie bush, and for first few yrs I was right. NOw in miami, he runs everywhere.
Incidentally, i am delighted to see this thread.
