But a QB who knows how to tuck and run is often not noticed until he’s gotten 
10 yards down the field if he can pull off the fake.  If they then concentrate 
to much attention looking for him to run then he then is able to either use a 
running back or tail back or pass.  Thats why option offense is harder to 
defend.  You have to have a QB that can take some punishment though, no frail 
guys as QB, or guys who can’t work outside of a pocket of protection.  For 
those it’s a disaster for them to try to run the ball themselves.  Does though 
is in pretty good shape physically.  He’s taken sacks pretty well already this 
year too.  There have been a few reckless plays, but learning from them will 
cure those.  But that whole offense well really the whole team is having to 
learn because there’s so many freshman on that team this year.  They are 
already coming together as a unit pretty good, could be quite interesting even 
in a couple of years, let alone 3 years from now.
