How Bout Some Two-Back Shot-gun Triple Option?

Hell yeah!!!  How awesome would that be.  Obviously I'm not advocating a complete overhaul of our entire offense, but just a few wrinkle plays to add during the bye-week that would be an absolute pain the ace to prepare for and that could hit for big plays.

The idea I have is to line up Big Bad Brad in shot-gun with Tomlinson and Greene to either side.  I'd also like to have two TEs, one on the line (Harstock) and one in the slot on the other side (Keller) inside of Braylon split wide.

What makes this such a tough cover is that Brad is an actual threat to throw the ball, so defenses can't sell out on the run.  Also, Keller can't be covered by most linebackers.  If you noticed, one of the ways we've taken away the wildcat from Miami is to bring a safety to crash down on the play from the side the motion comes from.  Basically, Dig would blitz the edge from where Ricky left and wrap up Ronnie's legs behind the line of scrimmage.   What we could do is run that inside trap that we were doing against the Vikings so well and hit Greene up there a couple times.  This would occupy interrior linebackers as well as a backside blitzer.  Greene's power and explosiveness would garner a lot of attention.  We could also trap the edge with Greene trying to hit it off tackle.  Also, in the off tackle case, the flow from Greene from one side to the other would cause the defense to reacte in that direction.

After establishing Greene inside a couple times (or more if its working), then we can start optioning the edge with Brad and LD.  If the fake to Greene works well, we'll take interior LBs out of the play and can use Keller to crack down to set the edge.  I'll take Smith + Tomlinson on DBs all day.

If we start to hit the option a few times, defenses will have to really start playing their DBs more aggresively to attack Smith and LD at or behind the line of scrimmage.  Once that happens, we run play-action and hit Keller in the seam or take a shot deep to Braylon. 

This formation would be damn hard for opposing defenses to combat with the dominance of our offense line play and the power, speed and passing ability of Brad Smith

UPDATE: its been discovered that we already have this implemented in our offense (courtesy of JetOrange).  Here's the link to the video -- http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-fantasy/09000d5d81ae11fd/WR-Smith-16-yd-run
