Read-Option: Next up for the Green Bay Packers?

Could the addition of Vince Young to the Packers roster allow for the installation of the read-option? Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports photograph

When people think of the modern day Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers may be two stars that come to mind.  Offenses that have run off of bullets thrown by these two gunslingers have really defined Packer football the past 21 years.

But what if something extra were to come into Lambeau Field?

With Vince Young as the backup quarterback, the idea of a read-option installment in the Packers offense may not be too farfetched. In his pre-season showing against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau, Young showed us he can still take off and get down field. Young is a big, physical quarterback who could present the speed and skill possible to be in that type of offense.

The Packers have had their fair share of difficulties defending against the read-option, but by adding it to their arsenal, they may be able to understand it better.  No one really knows if the read-option is going to stay long-term in the NFL but right now it is here, and it can be effective.

Having Young in the lineup may make it a viable option in the Packers offense.

It would not have to be a major part of the offense but it would give your opponents one more thing for which they would have to prepare.

What do you think, Packers fans? Is the read-option a possibility in Green Bay?

    After watching the final preseason game and what Young has to offer….the only viable option he offers is holding the clip board..that is all.

    Vince Young needs to use this as an springboard/audition for another team that uses/will use the read-option and be their full time qb
