I watched HBO's Inside the NFL highlights last night and in particular the Dallas game and the Oakland game.  Not sure if you saw any of these two games but the QB's won the games with their feet.  Given Culpepper's knee issue I am not sure who would win the 40 yard dash contest, Ben, Romeo or Culpepper but Ben would not be far behind either of them, my guess is he would win.  My point is Ben is a big/mobile guy.  I feel that a few QB draws, aka Elway, or even a bootleg would help open some of the passing lanes as well as add another dimension to this offense.  When we had the ball on the four if we would have come out in a spread formation, faked to WP, pump to Miller and let Ben run up the middle.

I just feel that Dallas and Oakland did a good job of letting their QBs run and I have not seen Ben take advantage of his running skills.

Let me know your thoughts and I will organize a letter campaign to Tomlin.

I was looking for a PA bootleg, myself.
