    And hell no. Does Manning come out? Brees? Brady? Rodgers? NO. It is idiotic to say the least with our porous line. He gets hurt, who the fuck is backup then? You don't drop 120$ Million to play a a backup for spark.

    We had this exact same discussion when Troy Smith was here.

    I'm ok with one or two change of pace plays, like how he's being used now.

    Use him any more than that and it will reek of desperation.
    Desperation is exactly where we are. Our offense sucks big time with no apparent answers for our problems, so yea, let's try anything.

    You really think a few gimmick plays, led by a bench warmer who, like Joe, would have to play behind our putrid line would really make a difference?

    You can't have both on the field. Do the math, better yet, who is our 3rd string? Oh yeah, we don't keep one. The end.

    Re: Should Tyrod Taylor be included more often?

    I am going to be on the against it side. with the way our season is going, it would be our luck that a CB / LB lined up accross from joe (if he is lined up as a wide out) would send a stiff block on the knees and tears Joe's ACL an just happens that Tyrod gets hurt on the same play... then what???

    Against Chicago in the 4th Qtr, Tyrod with fresh legs may have made a difference. Been a lot of backups this year and last that made the Ravens defense look mediocre. Right situation, anything could happen. Defenses have figured out Flacco and it has shown this year. Yea, your right, as usual, don't try anything different. Do the same old plays, see what it has done for the Ravens this year. SMH

    We can't have both on the field? Why is that?

    And you're not going to play a guy because of fear that he'll get hurt? Story is--if Flacco goes down, the season is gone anyway. Football teams that improve never play hesitant.

    Maybe, maybe not, but the fact remains that we've lost 4 games by 3 points or less, so maybe that gimmick play would get the extra score or first down we need to keep possession. When you don't have the talent to win, coaches have to get creative. At this point, what do we really have to lose?

    I don't see any downside at all in raising Tyrod's usage from 2 plays per season to 2 plays per game.

    As long as they are creative plays that make the defense defend something they haven't spent time preparing for. Read-option type plays, or even rollout run-pass options.

    Not sure I see a ton of upside either, but I definitely think it would a low-risk proposition.

    The league figured out the Wildcat in 2010. No need for gimmicks. It's an off year and the problem is glaring -- the offensive line.
    Steve Young.... reading your response... I could not help, but think of Steve Young.... Young is a classic example of what an opportunity and system can do for a player. Historically, NFL is loaded with players who were written off and became serviceable player or even a Hall of Fame player.

    Tryod is in the league for some time, and it wouldn't hurt to see what he has in store for us, especially we arent getting anything done offensively.

    I'd agree with this. I see some opportunities for some big plays though once teams start to commit to it.

    Just don't do it and make it a Donte Stallworth scenario where every time he comes on the field it's gonna be an end around without fail.

    Re: Should Tyrod Taylor be included more often?

    are we talking about the wildcat? thats so 2010...

    Im not in favor of putting our backup QB out there as a WR/RB/Or anything. If he were good enough to be one of those positions, hed be playing it full time, in which case id be for it. Hes not the WR Doss/Brown/thompson are. Hes not the RB Rice or Pierce are. Hes not the QB that Flacco is. So what are we gaining?

    if were talking 1-2 plays... early downs... id still say its a waste of time for a gimmick. Tyrod isnt a top 5 skill player on this team. were not even getting our top players in positions to make plays and now we think going deeper down the depth pool is going to improve our chances? highly unlikely.

    if we lose 1 of the next 3.... sure throw him in there. seasons likely over anyway.
