I’ve never been a fan of bringing in a “short yardage QB”. I just think a cold QB to handle this is a mistake waiting to happen. The CFL teams almost universally go this route
I know the arguments-heft, limit injuries etc. But I don’t buy it. In fact I’m wracking my brain to think of the last QB who has been injured as a result of a goal line sneak.
What I can recount are the amount of fumbles, slips that such a maneuver results in.
The NFL teams certainly don’t use it. Brady at 42 nor do short small guys like Brees, Wilson etc ever give way to a cold QB to handle this.
Do you guys think the short yardage cold guy is a good move as a rule?
