PA and let Vick either run it in or throw it off the PA.

It would work better if the play was a bootleg to Vick's left.

Warrick Dunn was very successful in these kinds of situations last year. Despite his stature, he can get the tough yards.

I'm giving it to Dunn up the gut. You don't fet fancy on 3rd down, that is what second down is for.

How is running with your bigger more powerful FB fancy?

Griffith isn't a very powerful runner, he is just a good receiver. Also are you going to do a FB dive? I would much rather have a lead blocker. Run to the right, pull the LG. TD.

Depends on the situation. If this is just some regular ol' 3rd & 2, I'd give it to Griffith, or possibly Dunn. If the game was on the line, I'd have Vick in the shotgun, fake draw to Dunn, then scramble to the outside with Griffith ahead and the O-line pulling in the opposite direction.

Bootleg to the left with Vick and Crumpler runs to the corner of the end zone. Option to run or pass.

Give it to Griffith...as he said he's the best FB in the league and is a great short yardage back for the zone blocking scheme.

Griffith is an absolute beast, people just fail to notice him down in ATL, he is extremely underrated, he has great hands and the ability to run, while blocking for the best rushing team in the NFL.

I'm still looking for:

Ron Mexico scrambles, gets tackled for a loss and then coughs up the ball.

Let Vick make a play. Before Duckett was traded, I'd say give it to him, but PA to Dunn and have Vick roll out, because no QB is better in the open field with his legs than Mike Vick.

let Vick do it cuz he's on mine, yet he won't start over Hasselback, unless Matt sux and Mike plays amazing

Trade him to someone who doesn't know about football for like a realllllllly good player.

PA boot. Have Crumpler run a cross, so that Vick has a dumpoff option in the case that they have the possibility of him running covered. Duckett would have been their go to guy prior to him being traded, but now that he's gone, Vick would have to be the go to guy in that situation, that is unless they really like Jerious Norwood.

Wow... that's a steal. I wish I could know I could pick up Vick in the 15th round of a draft.

We know that. That is the point of this thread. :P

Lelie isn't our #1 Receiver and isn't our GL guy either... but we have a lot of options at the GL. things like runs with Vick, Norwood, Dunn, Griffith or McCrary; PA's to anyone on the field but the lineman (likely set for GL would be Crumpler, Jenkins, Griffith, White, McCrary) the most likely though would be a Norwood or a Griffith run.

Play Action Option. That way Vick can run or throw the ball for the TD

Scar I haven't seen you on here in a while, what do you think of the pickup of lelie?

I'd go Dunn I like McCrary as a blocker for him in that situation.

This seems like a feast or famine option. Either Vick gets in or there is a 50/50 chance of him forcing a throw. ATL has a pretty decent running game so I'd eliminate the risk and punch it in. 8)

Kind of a subject change, but Miami has a really good short yardage/goal line offense. We have Ronnie Brown who can pound it, Fred Beasley who can do the same, Sammy Morris as well. We have McMichael at TE who can get some TDs. Chris Chambers on the fade route is money. And if all of that fails we have big Daunte for the QB sneak. Add to that our OL are pretty much all maulers, that is a crazy GL unit.

Put Schaub in so he can fumble the snap and Jerious Norwood can leap into the pile to get it for the TD.

Oh yeah. It's the Super Bowl for you, Falcons fans.
