Bills unveil their own Wildcat formation

Posted by Chris Brown on November 3, 2008 – 5:07 am

It happened on just one play Sunday in the loss to the Jets, but it turns out the Bills have a Wildcat formation of their own.

On a 3rd-and-2 at the Jets 21-yard line, Fred Jackson lined up in the shotgun with Trent Edwards out wide right. Jackson kept it for a three-yard gain.

When asked about it and whether it’ll be used more in the future Jackson offered the following.

“Well we hope so,” he said. “It’s something that we practice all the time it just doesn’t get called too much in the game. It’s something that we have in our arsenal and hopefully we use it some more.”

I think Jackson is the perfect player to use in that formation, with Lynch lined up wide to the left side. Jackson and Lynch are two of the more talented offensive players and it’s a way to work one off the other, much like Ronnie Brown works off Ricky Williams in the Miami attack.
