Default all qbs to learn a back position

I really like this. What do you guys think? Is this something PJ also did at Navy?

Great idea. Not only will this help in cases of injuries, but it could lead to regularly switching up the QB and really screwing with the DC.

Can you imagine Jaybo with Dwyer, Jones and Nesbitt in the backfield? Or maybe Jaybo with Dwyer, Nesbitt and Tevin? Can you say "mess with the mind of the DC?"

That just wouldn't be fair.

Didn't AA say that he'd learned all three positions that potentially handle the ball? Might have been in the ESPN interview. Sooooooo . . .

I can hear Wes now. "Tech breaks the huddle. What's this? Allen under center! Nesbitt at left A-back? Allen takes the snap and is sweeping left. No, wait . . . he just pitched to Nesbitt who's going right. Nesbitt is reading the defense. He makes a perfect option pitch to the Diesel who turns the corner. And he's gone. Touchdown Tech. Amazing, Rick. Only in Paul Johnson's offense!"

And that wouldn't even be a trick play.

I think it goes very well with our offense. What we already often do is run the same play over with perhaps some slight variations until we find a crack and exploit it. If we start switching up players at A-back and B-back, we throw players with different skills and abilities at the same defensive players until we find one that breaks em. Plus we might have a defensive player who reads how a particular player acts after a while, then next thing you know there is a different player at the same position and all hell breaks loose.

This is going to be great.

Just string together some kind of defense so we don't have 50-47 games every week (one way or the other).
