Will Broncos' New Option Attack Work Again?

When the Denver Broncos‘ offense took the field at O.co Coliseum to face the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, many of the players were about to see an offensive style they hadn’t seen since college.  Led by quarterback Tim Tebow, the Broncos broke out the option offense, a style all but extinct in the NFL, and lit up the Raiders for nearly 300 combined rushing yards.

The Broncos option attack was orchestrated flawlessly by Tebow, who is well familiar with the offensive style that helped him earn the Heisman Trophy and a national championship while at the University of Florida.  Broncos head coach John Fox decided to use that style of offense to play to Tebow’s strengths, and it worked to perfection against the much hated rival Raiders.

But can this unique offensive style work consistently in the NFL for the Broncos?  Let us know your opinion.

Will the Broncos' option offense be successful in the rest of their games this season?

    Not nearly as well as it did this week. NFL teams/coaches/players are way too quick when it comes to figuring out offenses for it to work twice.
