why hasn't a football team had the courage to eliminate the run game and run empty backfield every play?
it is the most efficient set in football. passing averages more yards per attempt than running, even in bad QBs. the complete spread of the formation makes it far easier to read defenses and less likely the QB will get sacked. QB runs also generally average more yards per attempt than RB runs.
the only risk is the QB getting hurt from more usage, but without the need to keep 3-4 RBs, a FB, and TEs for run blocking the on the roster, a team could carry 4 to 6 QBs for the season in case of injury.
if i'm a really shit team with no chance of being good anyway, i'd try it to make the season more entertaining
