Well, all the way until the last game, we haven't seen what we look like in a five wide set. I actually think it was a four wide set, but instead of two TE's, it was all WR core.

When we actually went that route, it was damn near scary. I admit that, and it would be really exciting to see that every week. But like I said, I think we want to save it for another day. Don't let a national audience see it just yet.

By the time we get to the playoffs, coaches in the playoffs will have a ton of footage on our I formation for example. Same formation, but one play results in a long bootleg pass, and the other results in a run. You can practice that if you have a ton of footage and analyze who matched up where and how they run it, etc. However, with just a couple of four wide plays to look at, they couldn't be able to fully analyze what routes our recievers can take and what not. That give the advantage to us. Kubiak knows this can be effective, but I don't think he will use it until we have to.
