They operate out of the shot-gun a lot as do the Patriots and a bunch of other teams. That is NOT the "spread offense."
I'm talking about the Urban Meyer college spread offense where the QB lines up in the shotgun with 3-4 wide-outs and no RBs and runs the pass/run option as their base offense.
That will never happen in the NFL.
Can they put Tebow in the shot-gun some of the time? Sure. They did last game. It didn't work because Tebow kept missing wide open WRs and holding onto the ball and taking sacks and running with the ball instead of throwing it.
But, as John Fox said to a reporter who asked him this very question: "Well, if you looked at the film we instituted a bunch of plays where Tim lined up in the shot-gun."
Actually they do run a form of spread.
Notice I never said shotgun, every team runs the shotty at points in time. I am aware that shotty is not spread.
And Dets spread is the closest thing to spread seen in college and if I am not mistaken its also pretty similar to what stafford ran in college too. But since I do not watch college I have no actual idea as to what he really ran.
I haven't seen them do that at all this year, but I haven't watched all of their games.
Looks like I wasn't right. That wasn't pretty to watch.
