I know its dangerous, but I would mind seeing willie try for the edge in goal line situations for two reasons:
1) he is damn fast
2) we kind of show our hand when he leaves in goal line situation

Line up single back, 3 TEs, pull the guard and let willie try for the edge.

It would not surprise me if Cowher didn't call or allow the goal line leap. It really doesn't fit with the smash mouth philosophy ( a bit of a punk out if you think about it). On the other hand a score is a score. I bet Willie could have some success with that.

I think its a dangerous move with the neck and head being highlighted to hit by inside linebackers that weigh 260+...We risk a ton of injury to our RB'S...

Willie could do it but I think its best he don't.... Walter Payton was the best at it.... -RIP Walter-

Your probably right.

And a player in teh air is ALWAYS more open for injury then when they are on the ground.

delhess, jerome was trying to sidestep the defender in the hole when he fumbled.

i think there may be something to this theory. remember in the SB highlight dvd after bens controversial td? during the replay and review, theres that sideline clip of polamalu lobbying cowher to let him jump the pile. as he's saying he can do it, cowher is just looking at him crazy as if hes thinking "yeah, whatever troy, now go sit down".

troy can leap tall buildings in a single bound. i dont think its that bad of an idea.

You know who used to leap over the pile a lot? Kordell Stewart. I think I'd rather just have the guys stay on the ground and run it in, thank you.
