Here's a stat to put the Wildcat in perspective

The Saints throw the ball, on average, 32 times per game.  The Dolphins, on average, throw 29 times per game. Now although it is true that the Dolphins run more than the Saints, maybe as many as 12 times more per game, it is obvious that they throw pretty often and that the passing game is pretty important to them. Theoretically there could be problems with the Saints managing the Wildcat, but let's face it this Dolphins QB is going to have to be pretty darn good passing  against a tough defense to win- they haven't been able to win by just running the ball, they had to pass also.  And, they only won 2 out of 5 games at that.  So, 1) if they are successful and can win by mostly relying on the Wildcat, then good for them- they deserve to win, or 2) if they can win through the air and Henne can have more success with his passing game than Brees does- then good for them , they deserve to win.  And, 3) if they try to beat us with balance, well, balance seems to be our middle name this year, so see #1 and #2 if they can outplay us with balance.
