Inadvertently, anyway.

In the dark days of the Conte-inuim, there were often cries of "Give us ways to play our freshmen in blowouts" or "Let us protect our starters in blowouts."
 
DONE.
 
Just use one of the user-defined position roles to "reverse" your depth chart, use those roles in a playbook just used for blowouts, and set it as the active play book if you are ahead or losing by 21 (or whatever your blowout threshold is" with 15 minutes to go as an optional game plan.  Voila - 4th quarter scrub time.

OK, this would really only be useful if we had more "ahead / losing" optional game plans.
