This past week was easily the Wildcat's worst performance of the season. Ronnie Brown ran three times from the formation and gained only 1 yard each time. The coaches tried to set up a pass play from the formation, but Ronnie was sacked for an 8 yard loss. This was all coming against Denver's defense which is one of the worst in the league.
The Wildcat has now been in play for six weeks, and the difference between the first three weeks of its use and the last three are stark. The Wildcat is on life-support at this point, and it may be circling the drain.
I don't think the team should give up on it yet, especially since running from the base formation has been so impotent, but something clearly needs to happen to breathe new life into it. Hopefully, it can get back on track against Seattle; if not, it may be time to shelve it for a while.
