    what kind of trick plays would you like to see this year? What was your favorite trick play of last year?

    I would like to see them incorporate the hook and ladder. thoughts?

    Tavons reverse cut back was sweet. WR passes and some Hekker throws should be the usual.

    I agree with legatron4, that reverse cutback against the bears was a very well designed play, and a great way to start the game. I'm wondering if they could get away with running it again this season, or something very similar.

    the double reverse to stedman was boss as well.
    It just shows that schotty can be creative, we just need to see more of it..

    I wouldn't mind seeing some WR/TE laterals to Tavon after catches to maximize YAC.

    If you lateral back to someone and they score a touchdown, what does the stat look like? Example, Givens catches it beyond the line of scrimmage and laterals back to Tavon and he scores a touchdown, does Austin get credit for the catch or just the touchdown?

    From a publisher of Fantasy Football Software's FAQ page:

    http://footballsoftware.com/faq-commish-stats.html#s1

    How is the yardage calculated when there is a receiving lateral?

    If a receiver laterals the ball to a teammate, the receiving yardage continues and the quarterback will still be awarded a TD pass.

    EXAMPLE: In week 7 of 2003, Daunte Culpepper of Minnesota threw a 44-yard pass to Randy Moss, who dished the ball to Moe Williams, who ran the final 15 yards for a TD.
    It will be recorded as a Passing TD from Daunte Culpepper to Moe Williams. Laterals are considered "continuation" plays, so the play is scored as the same type of play that it started out as before the lateral. So, here is how it is recorded:

    Daunte Culpepper: 1 completion, 59 yards passing, 59-yard TD pass
    Moe Williams: 0 reception, 15 receving yards, 15-yard receiving TD
    Randy Moss: 1 reception, 44 yards receiving

    That short kick off return that Bailey caught against the saints was sweet.

    Technically, the play is called hook and lateral.

    Would love to see our players pay homage by doing the bob and weave

    Unfortunately and ridiculously, that would draw a flag. Would be cool to see though.

    I'd like to see play from Bradford that makes analysts believe they were "tricked" into thinking he would have a mediocre season.

    Not a trick play, but on opening day, on the opening drive, I would like to see the Rams go shotgun, no huddle.

    THAT would be a trick, no?

    How about schotty just removes the huddle and goes chip kelly style. :)

    I'd be happy to see our offence make 4 yards every time they touch the ball - dink passes, runs up the belly - I seriously don't care, I want to keep our D as fresh as daisies and hungry to win that ball back - opposing QB's will hate seeing a fresh Quinn, Long, Brockers and Donald coming on the field...

    How about we steal a play from Coach Lombardi's play book, and bring back the 'Old Power sweep', run it until they can stop it, which will be NEVER with our New Line!
