    It could transpose into a Reversed version of the Philidor Defense
    after 2,,,Nf6 3.d3 d5 4.Nbd2. The other N goes to f3 and the Q
    would be placed at the c2 square or it could be placed at the e2
    square. The Philidor Defense has the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4
    Nbd2 4.Bc4 c6 and Black plays to expand the pawns on the Queenside.
    The Philidor is actually very tough to crack.
