The Wildcat has worked in the past.
The Dolphins surprised everyone and brought it into the National Football League and went 11-5 after a season of 1-15 with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown.
But the Vikings shouldn't use it that way. They should do it like the Browns.
The Browns use it effectively with Josh Cribbs and powerback-Peyton Hillis in the back field and either option it or quick run.
The way I see it.
Joe Webb is a physical quarterback/wide out like Joshua Cribbs and Toby Gerhart is a bruising, physical runner like Peyton Hillis. Together in the backfield with direct snaps they could be dangerous.
On the wide receiving end, put Adrian Peterson on the right and Percy Harvin on the left. Both have great speed and can easily take an end around or pass for a good long gain.
How it will work:
AP will come in motion while Joe Webb (with the ball) and Toby Gerhart start running. Either Webb can pitch to one of the them or bomb it on the slant or deep route to Percy Harvin.
Or just take direct snaps.
