What is the Wildcat Offense?

By October 23, 2011

Follow me on:

It's no secret the NFL is a league of copycats. If one team finds success with a new wrinkle, you can bet other teams will attempt to duplicate it.

The biggest fad in the league over the past couple seasons involves the Wildcat offense. Perhaps more appropriately referred to as the Wildcat formation or Wildcat package since no NFL team runs it as their primary offense, the non-traditional attack has caught on with several teams and been very effective in some cases.

So what is the Wildcat offense and what are its advantages?
