Longtime Mike Holmgren fave Seneca Wallace is going to hang around with his boss a little bit longer -- the quarterback agreed to a three-year deal Thursday night.

Despite publicly stating that he'd like to start, Wallace will be backing up Colt McCoy in Cleveland, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

That's no huge surprise, however, and neither is the (likely) forthcoming cutting of Jake Delhomme from the roster, which is probably for the best for everyone involved.

Delhomme can blatantly get signed by John Fox in Denver shop himself around at a low price and the Browns have a backup for McCoy who's familiar with the Holmgren-likeoffense that Pat Shurmur will install in Cleveland.

I never said no one uses the Wildcat anymore.  I said teams rarely use it.  And I know how it works so you just wasted all of your time trying to make yourself sound smart.  Did you come up with that all by yourself or did you copy and paste that from Wikipedia?  Anyway, after that game Ronnie Brown had against the Patriots, every team was scrambling to implement it into their offense.  It was a trend that perplex defenses but now, it's hardly ever used if teams even still practice that formation.  Maybe every team had ran the Wildcat once last season, but before, they were running it at least several times a game.  Sure, a few teams still do use it a few times, but the vast majority have abandoned it.  If that doesn't show that it is dying out than I don't know what would.

No, I didn't notice it died.  In fact I would say 100% of the teams in the NFL ran it for at least one play in the 2010 season...so check yourself.

You name the team, and I'll tell you who the WIldcat personnel were; go ahead...

Now here's a lesson as to why it works.

It's basically an option offense where in the NFL that scheme has died away - largely in part because of the type of athlete to run it and a "west coast" or any passing style offense does not exist.

So, for a defense to only scheme against 1 & 2 back run offenses - no one in the back 7 accounts for the QB to run the ball the DL either pass rushes or has gap responsibility and the OLB's have the edge on counter/boot/reverse and the MLB plugs the hole or lead blocker; then boom Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams is in the sencond level already - that's why it works

It's not gone yet, but until defenses scheme for it; it will be here to stay - when they do - they will exploit the mis-match in pass coverage underneath

In case you didn't realize it bli34, teams hardly runs the Wildcat anymore.  Very rarely will any team use it.  It was a trend that died as fast as is came up when Ronnie Brown dismantled the Patriots defense with it.  Wallace is a solid back up for Colt McCoy because he knows the offensive style Cleveland has.  I thought when he was in Seattle, he would switch positions because he has the speed and size to be a receiver/returner instead of sitting behind Matt Hasselbeck.  The Browns are an up and coming team withyouth and depth.  They surprised me last year, especially Peyton Hillis, who was a stud offensively.  The youth movement in Cleveland is going to bring this team back to a contender.  Delhomme was a bad signing by this team simply because he doesn't have it anymore.  Making McCoy the starter and Wallace the back up is a great set of moves by this team.  McCoy is more than ready to start in the NFL and Seneca is a servicable back up.

It is a good move – and a sign that the team is going forward with McCoy. Wallace is not only good for 3-4 starts due to injury to the #1 QB, but he’ll get snaps during the course of the game – with Wildcat plays which is the hottest trend in the NFL offenses these days. It is a great move and sign of real stability at the QB position – even if McCoy plays himself out of the starting role ala Quinn/Anderson/Frye – I’m way more confident in Wallace under center than any of those guys by a longshot<br />

he is a descent qb but should have switched positions when he was with seattle. with his speed he could be an elite punt/kick returner as well as a slot threat at wide receiver
