Roman the mad genius, I think will find a way to get him on the field. Not as a Smith replacement, but another weapon to confound defenses.
I think its too early to tell. Preseason is for practice. Who know's if we run the option at all this season, regardless of whether CK is starting a game or not.
ONE preseason game. Let's settle down a little bit.
I think we will. But that's mainly based off of... Was it last years eagles game? When they sent in CK near the end of the half but then had to call a time out. Its like how the wildcat was succesful when used as a surprise package. Purely hypothetical but let's say it's a close game with 30 seconds left in the half. The defense probably is a prevent nickel or dime, toss in CK for a play or two (no huddle) and hit the run option against a D with pass personnel to get into field goal range. Any and all points matter.
And then if the game is still close, you could do the same play and while the D is looking for the option, you got CK who can throw 60+ yards to deep threats like ginn, moss and MM. Might not be an every game package but it could be used for the games that matter more.
