Why the read option may have been shut down


If GB loses to SF 49ers, some credit may be due to Vikings minimizing use of the read-option and not tipping our hand very much (more helpful favor to SF than GB). This SI article was rather insightful with diagrams and play analysis. If GB wins on the road, we could be very well looking at a GB vs Seahawks rematch and a GB vs Patriots/Denver Super Bowl. It'll be worth reflecting back on this post after the game is over btw GB & SF to answer one very simple question: Could the read-option via mobile QB have been the best chance of Vikings defeating GB? If yes, it could be your beloved Vikings challenging the Falcons in a playoff rematch indoors (favorable to adrian), setting up a NFC Championship game against SF or Seahawks. Damn. Just imagine the possibilities of a SB trip could have been possible this year. Vikings threw it away on purpose by jamming Webb into the pocket pass game plan and turning us into a one dimensional offense GB had no fear of.

Morris Claiborne scored 4 of 50 on Wonderlic

Is this a concern? Field smarts vs cognitive smarts... This looks real bad. Below Jamarcus Russell's level. I cannot advise the 3rd pick to be blown away on someone who fails at basic reasoning...
