Will we even see the WildPat?

I think has been brought up several times but i want to revisit the topic as we enter the beginning of the season. Correct me if im wrong but not all of the 53 roster spots are active on game day, only like 40 something can be active. We all believe that TS will not keep all 3 QBs active b/c we need more guys active on special teams. To my knowledge Pat White and Chad Henne have not been doing any special team work, correct? So this brings me back to my first question, will we even see the WildPat?

 

I personally believe we will not, even though i think the guy could be very dangerous. My belief is that we are going to "red-shirt" Pat White and his Wildcat package and hold off on it till next season. Chad Henne is too valuable to not be active. If Pennington were to go down with an injury Henne HAS TO COME IN. Henne is a much more developed QB than Pat White. I love both Henne and Pat White, but both can not be active. Therefore  we will probably not see any Pat White during the regular season, unless of course Pennington is out for a good chunk of time and Pat White essentially becomes the back up to Henne for a game. Baring a major injury to Pennington i think there will be no Pat White.

If we do indeed "red-shirt" i believe we will start to see a more college oriented offense once Henne becomes a full time starter. The Wild cat will have a much bigger role. Im not talking 50/50 but maybe 75/25. I think having a two QB scheme with Henne and White would be neat.  Henne would get that 75% of the possessions and White would get around 25. Now im not saying will bring in Pat White after the second play of the game (like the stupid eagles did with McNabb and Vick) but i figure White would inserted in unique situation when the offense needs a boost or to simply catch a defense off guard.

 

Sorry if this has been brought up before but i wanted to write something :)
