    DE strategy

    Now this has nothing to do with who we pickup inFA or anything like that.

    This is just a hypothetical question i'd like to hear what others have to think about

    It seems now, the idea with ends is have the faster end, playing RDE so he can rush the qb's blind side.
    Offenses adjust to this by overpaying Great athletic LT's to contain these pass rushers, often leaving their right side of the O line vulnerable.


    but when you think about it, how often is the qb's left side his only true blind spot?? not all the time, only if he's throwing to the middle or right of the field.
    If he's throwing to the left half of the field, he's looking directly at the RDE, leaving his right side open.

    Wouldn't it make sense, to start putting your great pass rushing DE as LDE to take advantage of the mismatch, Kinda like what they do with Strahan on the Giants?

    Aha

    The Jedi mind trick.


    Brilliant!


    IMO they should have fast ones on both sides and overload them with speed.

    Re: DE strategy

    If you have two premier Rush Ends who can play both the run and stop the pass (as with the Giants) you would have the flexibility to do that. Promblem is........


    Hard to explain in this forumn but suffice it to say, it is the QB's predominant blind spot (RDE).
    A right handed QB has his back to that side as he drops back and as he throws (discounting throws to the Left Side).

    You have to also think that Strahan is a great DE, but is he really the best ever???
    He has the record for most career sacks and sacks in a season, and although he is truly a great and will go to the HOF one day, alot of his success comes from not having to line up against the premiere tackles in the league.
    If he were moved to RDE, i'm sure his stats would be less, although still great.
