Thinking of last season, we saw three QBs (RG3, Russell Wilson, and Colin Kaepernick) dramatically impact the league with read-option running QB play.

The recent Pat White thread made me realize that Parcells was 3 years ahead of the curve on this.  While Pat White ended up sucking, Parcells correctly realized the potential of expanding from the Wildcat (a run-heavy formation with limited passing threat) to a more QB-centric read-option offense.

While he still deserves the blame for not properly assessing White's ability, it does seem that he had a good pulse on where the league was headed after seeing the Wildcat in action.

This is true, assuming that this was his intention for Pat White.  We never saw White used for this purpose.  He just got concussed.
