It just dawned on me on how we can truly use Pat White.
As our new place holder for the field goal unit!!!
Alright, I know some of you are thinking, "Has he lost his damn mind!!". I assure you that I have not, nor am I, as the name implies, drunk. I truly think this is something they should look into for two reasons:
1. As soon as a defense sees him out there holding they'll be mindful of a possible fake. Which will in turn, lessen the pressure put on blocking the kick. This will also allow DC$ sightly more time to insure more accurate kicks Yes, I know hius nickname is DC$ for a reason, but any kicker would appreciate an extra second or two and not feel they have to rush a kick.
2. His skill set is perfect executing the fake FG. He can run and he has a strong arm. His speed allows him to get to the outside. His strong arm allows him to throw a quick pass to a TE on an out or post route before a defender can recover from the fake.
But for this to become truly effective, Pat White must learn to become a reliable place holder. Basically meaning, if we decide to kick, he can effectively catch the snap and place the ball for a good kick. We would also have to sell it, so that teams truly believe he is our new place holder. The first game that he takes over those duties, I wouldn't run a single fake. That way teams might disregard it as a simple personnel change. I would even let him just hold for two games, if the games were going in our favor. Then, just when teams are lulled into thinking only about the kick, you spring it on them. After that, it could be used at any given time, even on extra points.
