What happened to the boy who got everything he wanted?

I'm not even going to give an opinion, because I don't know enough about whether or not this could even work in the rules, but just give this a look...

On the one hand, I've always been a fan of the idea of teams getting outside of the box. On the other, I don't like the idea of this becoming the next phase in NFL group-think, taking away the conflict at the line of scrimmage that the game has always had at its center. Still, if a team could put together an offense full of speedy athletes, maybe this set is the kind of thing that would allow their gifts to be maximized, and it would be fun to watch NFL defenses figure out the way to break this (much like the Parcells/Walsh duels of old).

it's like the atkins diet of offensive formations. it works for awhile while you starve yourself from the basics. then one day when you can barely do the simplistic things any more, you binge on all those great plays you've been missing... then you gain all the weight back and realize you just have to do it the hard way.
