    "The read option will never work in the NFL"

    - basically everyone on earth, circa 2005

    Ryan Clark was still looking at the pile for Mcfadden when Pryor was 20 yards by him. Worst play I've ever seen from Ryan Clark.

    Pryor ran 93 on this one play. For the game, he ran 8 more times for 13 yards. Not sure that's a ringing endorsement for either the read option or Pryor.

    He also completed 10 of 18 passes for 88 yards, no TD,s and 2 INT's. His QB rating for the game was 25.7.

    Well I certainly wasn't speaking only of this game. This was Pryor's 2nd 100+ yard game this season and he's by no means alone as a read option QB in the NFL.

    How many of those carries and/or yards are attributed to sacks?

    Sacks don't count as rushing attempts or against rushing totals in the NFL.

    The read option makes up less than 4% of all snaps in the NFL. The Eagles use it the most. SF has used it for less than 40 plays this year.

    I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean? I don't think I said it made up the majority of all plays or anything.

    What percentage of plays are read option in a college offense that uses the read option (outside of a team like GT). It seems like people assume it is close to 100% or something.

    The read option is a package at best. You still need a QB that can throw the ball from the pocket.

    In 2005 the argument was that NFL defenders were so fast that it simply wouldn't work. It's a fairly consistent package now. We have running QBs all over the NFL now, with 12 who have run for more than 55 yards in a game, 9 who have run for more than 75 yards in a game and 3 (if you count a 99 yard game) who have run for 100 yards.

    The effectiveness of the read option is down from last year 6.1 to 4.6 yards per attempt. Even if its use is up to 3.7%
