Default Would you do it?

Say we have the ball 1st and goal at the one foot line. Would you line up Watt at FB and let him try and run it in?

Is Haynesworth on their team, or some other 400 lb fat boy that might break his foot?

Yes, I would.

The fridge did it, and we are paying JJ mondo bucks to WIN.
Not to worry about his safety.

He's big, strong, and durable. I bet he would WANT to do it,
knowing his attitude.

Nope.

No way am I asking him to crash into the middle of a defense for a yard. It's one thing to have him running routes at TE. We spent a draft pick on a pretty good fb. Let him absorb those collisions. That's his job. Special teams, the rare catch out of the backfield, and crash dummy. That's his role.

Absolutely. In fact I favor handing the ball to the FB in general near the goal line. Giving it to the deep back often gives the D time to penetrate and stuff the play. QB sneak is also a good call in the situation you propose.

Amazing all those NFL coaches that can't see this superiority of this strategy.

Line up in a 5 wr set, spread them out, goose and go. Any QB should be able to get 1-2 yards.

When you bring in a FB and 3 TE, everyone know you are going to run and the box is stacked.
