Stanback and Felix -- future "wildcat" duo?

Let me start this post off by saying I have no idea how to draw up the "wildcat" plays that many teams, starting with the Dolpins, have been running this year. 

But, don't we have two players on the Cowboys who would be absolutely perfect running that formation a couple of times a game?  I'm talking about Isaiah Stanback and Felix Jones. 

I know Stanback's shoulder is hurt, but is it his left or right shoulder?  If it's his left, there should be no reason he can't throw the ball out of a wildcat formation.  And if anyone has seen that You Tube video of his 70-yard heave while at Washington, he can probably throw it farther than Tony Romo.  Plus, he was always a running QB at Washington, and he has speed to burn.  Not all that unlike Pat White of West Virginia, who I've watched a lot.

Then you have Felix Jones, who ran this formation a lot while at Arkansas, correct?  So it's totally natural for him. 

This strikes me as a far superior "trick" play to the unproductive end-arounds that seem to be all Jason Garrett can think up.  Indeed, given the speed of both Stanback and Jones, you could run this play anywhere on the field and threaten to break it for a TD.  Plus, with Stanback, it would have a passing option that none of the other teams running it have really exploited. 

I want to see us run this play!  More than once!!
