    Granted to you both that Kelly's system he used at Cincy probably wont' be making to the NFL and option is also probably a no go, but what he ran at ND this year, mostly out of necessity and lack of a top qb, could work in the NFL. At least as a GM could probably believe some version of Kelly's system could work.

    I'll concede my stance just to end the argument
    No, I think you have a point that the NFL's incorporating more spread elements, just as we do. I think the option QB is going to be very rare in the NFL (and with Saban), because the downside is so devastating if you lose him...

    Wouldn't RG3 be a good example of that? Even if they had won that game, they would be in the playoffs with no QB.

    I look how the Niners have used Smith/Kaepernick and the Seahawks using Wilson as "examples" of using more mobile QBs. They must have the instinct to throw first, and then run if you need to. Granted, the Niners have run a bit more direct QB runs with Kaepernick under center, but ultimately, you have to protect yourself, and that means only running when you absolutely need to. I put examples in quotes because it's been done that way in the NFL for years now.

    RG3 is far from an option QB.

    Any quarterback not named Tim Tebow running outside the pocket is going to be subject to having his career shortened by a hit. The long term loss is not worth the short term gain.

    Imo rg3 is done already. Sounds like. He has a blown out knee i think for the second time. He needs to start watching old dan morino game tape and adjust his game.

    Brian Kelly returns from the Bahamas within the hour, per source. Will be an interesting next 48 hrs. #notredame

    I dont care one way or the other but with the recruiting class they are reported to have i dont see kelley leaving just signing a bigger contract. Then again the domers are tight with that type of money.going to be intresting no doubt about it. Im sure he is asking for "Saban money".
