    would love to see some new wrinkle added to this upcoming ratbirds game. i'm talking along the lines of maybe Dobbs doing a taysum hill type of thing, use his athletic ability if he can catch which im sure he can.

    Use him as an rpo type of play to maybe help with the rushing as well and keep the defense on its toes. would take alot of practice and refining to be able to use in game but would love to see that wrinkle added. Do you think that would work out?

    If we see Dobbs on the field, the steelers are doomed. Keep the rocket scientist on the sideline.

    I would much rather see Derek Watt lining up and utilizing the FB position as a leading blocker for Benny Snell or even Conner on 1st and 10 than I would to seeing Dobbs take one snap.

    Dobbs would 1st have to get a helmet, they dress only two QB's on game days.

    You need Mason on the sidelines, because he's border line Abercrombie and Finch model, think that is why they final told him to get his helmet off.

    Dobbs can run, but he is no Lamar Jackson or Mike Vick.

    I would love it most if Vance came back and both him and Ebron torched the Ravens D. What happened to Vance? He is a total afterthought now?


    Ben was under center a little and even did playaction in the Jags game, I want to see more of that!!!

    Vance has mostly been used as a blocking TE this year.

    Ravens defense is smart enough that if they saw Dobbs on the field, they'd be ready for him to get the ball in some manner. Moot point anyway because as someone else pointed out, he won't get a hat anyway.

    I want to see the offense gain more than 221 total yards, which is what they gained the last time they played the Ravens. I want to see the offense run more than 50 plays. If it wasn't for the 4 turnovers, the Ravens game would have been an L. There isn't much pressure on the Steelers except for remaining undefeated. Let's see a consistent, 1st down producing offense.

    I would prefer they do what got them to 10-0, but do it better. To me there should still be pressure because if we lose this game and the Stains win, its a 2 game lead and we have a ways to go with playing them in the last game. With Clev playing Jax this week and us playing the Rats, this is a real possibility. I wouldn't want to go to Clev to play a game to see who wins the division.

    What you're proposing is not a wrinkle. It's an overhaul. If we were 5-5, go for it. Dobbs isn't dressing for a reason. If he were a better #2 than Rudolph, he would be wearing a helmet already. And since he's not better than Rudolph, he isn't very good.

    What we need is more attention to detail and better coaching/performance in the run game. Taking time away from that for a "wrinkle" is a recipie for disaster.

    Labs said it best a couple of weeks ago when he answered a fan's question and said this isn't Madden.

    It's okay to be a fan and want Taysum Hill production/dynamics added to our offense. But this isn't a video game.

    If they saw Dobbs on the field they stack the box out of a lack of respect to his abilities.

    If they saw Dobbs on the field, they would delay the game because Vegas would need to reset the odds.

    Besides the obvious things stated (not active), the covid thing has limited practice time all season, then you are coming into a game with a 1.5 to 2 day prep...we had enough wildcat last year with Samuels...just say no.

    Wait...you're being sarcastic that the raisins wouldn't see that coming? :hehehe:

    I don't know if the raisins would be more surprised than Samuels.

    My wrinkle is to, every once in a while, come out for a normal series of downs and play the no huddle, quick set/snap offense with Ben calling the plays.

    They should do this at least once a quarter.

    That would necessitate him taking a snap from center. A wrinkle on top of a wrinkle.
