a play I'd like to see MM remove from the playbook



first of all MM, let me say, i get why you adopted this play. you started running it in 2008. The cowboys where using this play to great affect in 2007 and 2008. However after trying this play 3-4 times a game and having it NEVER work, you'd think eventually you would phase this play out. Yet here we are after 5 years of 16 games where you've tried the play 3-4 times per game, and i dont think its ever gained more than two yards. No, im not talking about the kuhn dive, or the Kuhn leap, no I'm talking about the HB draw......Now i get it, it should work, it really should. We're a passing team so when we make it seem like a pass play the running lanes SHOULD be there. Yet I've never seen the opposing team be fooled and this normally results in a negative run, a back to the L.O.S. , or a two yard gain (woot woot!!!) For 3 years now ive been shaking my head saying "well thats cute" everytime i see this play fail, which to my recolection has been every single time its been called. there are a few formations they run this play out of. my personal favorite is the 3 wr 1 TE 1 RB shotgun set. why is this my fav.? well because its the one that fails harder than the rest. Anyways to sum it up MM you dont have to burn this play from your memory, but just stop calling it. thank you.
