    Because it worked? And actually there’s been a number of successful plays by Austin.

    I actually like him better on the outside. In the slot I think his deep speed is wasted a little bit. On the outside his speed actually requires safety help which can open things up across the rest of the field for everyone.

    Just added him as a RB to a FF team in which I have Shady who is hurt. I expect great things.

    Agreed. We need to try out Austin as a DeSean Jackson type.

    That's exactly right. Use him like the prototypical deep threat like Cooks or DeSean Jackson.

    We all know with this team if something works then it won’t be used again.

    If you put a guy like Austin in motion across a formation before the snap, it puts pressure on the entire secondary. They don't know at which point along the LOS he turns upfield.

    Even if you shift him -- come out of the huddle and line up in the slot, then have him swap places with the outside guy. That forces safeties and corners to make decisions on one of the fastest guys in the NFL within 5 seconds.

    Between RPO plays, Elliott's running ability and mixing up the looks on WRs, Garrett has a whole banquet of options to give defenses fits. But Garrett is a plodder, an offensive dullard, stuck in some system Ernie Zampese designed for Dan Fouts.

    Does catching a long TD on the first drive, then another 15 yard reception the rest of the game all of a sudden qualify as “breaking out”?
