Santonio Holmes may not be a fan of the two quarterback system, but apparently, Bart Scott is. He knows what types of challenges that a Wildcat package can place on a defense, and likes having a guy that can run it on his team:

“We understand how tough the Wildcat, having an athlete out there on the field and put the ball in his hands, at all times is because we had to defend the Wildcat,” Scott said. “It causes problems. We understand the advantage that it gives us. Whenever you have to prepare for things that may or may not happen, it stretches your defense.”

Bart Scott makes a fair point, when he says that often times the Wildcat doesn’t work because the guy taking the snap is a running back or wide receiver that can’t throw the ball well. With a guy like Tebow, who has the ability to make a throw once in a while, that adds another element to confuse the defense.
