Please explain to me why this is a dumb idea

It has long eluded me why NFL teams have not recruited RBs from rugby teams. In addition to plowing through DBs, it would also be productive to have a couple of them line up and lateral pass the ball back and forth like they do in rugby

Like the wildcat, teams would adjust, but with the right lines and execution, it could be successful for at least a couple of seasons.

Another plus is that rugby players don't use pads. They are more than tough enough to play in the NFL.

Kind of an advanced option.
