    Anyone notice who was in on all the ST's tackles and who wasn't?

    Loved watching the guys get down there and be in place waiting for the ball to get there.
    Long story short, hang time vs "Kick it as fricken far as you can" will be the key to our success this year, not one ST's player.

    Case in point.....

    Minnesota - 2:23

    1st-10, MIN15 2:23 B. Favre incomplete pass to the right
    2nd-10, MIN15 2:19 B. Favre sacked by B. Pool
    3rd-16, MIN9 2:00 B. Favre passed to C. Taylor to the right for 10 yard gain
    4th-6, MIN19 1:30 C. Kluwe punt. J. Cribbs returned punt for 67 yard touchdown
    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/boxscore...005&page=plays

    Kluwe clearly outkicked his coverage on this. Cribbs had time to field it and survey the field and select the land not covered.

    Result, TD........

    I wonder if the coaching staff asked him to kick it like that or if they told him to give it hang time?
    OutKicked his coverage?????????????????????????????? [size=10pt]Come on Marrdro you are better than this.[/size]

    Cribbs TD

    Watch this again.

    1. Kluwe's total punt distance: 48 yards past the line of scrimmage. It's not like he kicked it 60 some yards. Either our guys are slow, or being blocked
    2. Our left runner can't get back his blocker AT ALL.
    3. Watch seconds 10-12. Three Vikings collapse on the ball instead of staying in their lanes. Cribbs makes one move and Bye Bye.

    I agree that Kluwe has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them.
    I am a bit off my game lately.
    I blame the Chiller, LNAD and Heath.

    That's funny, because two pages ago, [size=12pt]You[/size] were blaming Kluwe for over kicking the coverage...

    One thing is clear. With Sharper and Birk gone, [size=12pt]You[/size] need new scapegoats, and you are having an extremely hard time finding them.

    [size=12pt]You[/size] can't pick any of the young guys, because you would be contradicting yourself. [size=12pt]You[/size] have spoken for Sullivan, Rice, Griffin, and Tyrell. Loadholt played well, as did Edwards.

    [size=12pt]You[/size] can't pick any of the vets, because they are playing too well. Longwell kicked a touchback, Kluwe had good punts. Favre showed zip and no INTs.

    Stirring an empty pot just isn't any fun, is it?
    Please refrain from using YOU statements.
    Your argument alone is enough, calling out others is not necessary to make a point..

    Result, TD........

    I wonder if the coaching staff asked him to kick it like that or if they told him to give it hang time?
    Nahh... The kick wasn't booming distance wise - 48 yards.
    And the hang-time wasn't good, but wasn't terrible - 4.4 seconds.
    I think that average hang-time across the NFL is something like 4.6 seconds (not positive on that).

    What happened is that Onatolu got sucked inside, giving up his lane and allowing the return.
    Kluwe took a bad angle too, because he's a punter that thinks he's an athlete, but he's not.
    So mostly it was Onatolu.

    Here's a first screen shot with Onatolu circled in red:
    [img width=450 height=250]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2432/3928913457_774cb3a1b3.jpg[/img]

    The red line is the path he's going to take.
    The blue path is the lane he should have taken.

    Here it is a few frames later:
    [img width=450 height=252]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2469/3928913495_41fcc87c9e.jpg[/img]

    Now he's caught up in a block and realizes that Cribbs is cutting back where he should have been.

    And here it is just a bit later:
    [img width=450 height=250]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2474/3928913547_ecb0a8e532.jpg[/img]

    Onatolu is taking a dive at Cribbs, just missing.

    Childress mentioned 2 guys getting out of their lanes at the press conference Monday (link).
    At 2:58, he talks about the return:
    We had two unblocked guys that jumped out of a lane, and... you know, the same coverage the next time and those two guys get in their lane and it's a minus three return back there.
    I'm not sure who the other guy is, and who might have had a shot at getting him for a loss or instant stop, but Onatolu was the most obvious guy that missed.
    BINGO!

    To answer your question in purple. The other guy is right next to Onatolu, on his left. He also pinches way too far inside and is actually in the hashes when Cribbs makes his break outside. I can't get his number but he is totally out of position. He should have been on the other side of the two blockers, outside of the hashes as Cribbs makes his cut.

    This also means that Onatolu is WAY left of his lane. He should have been hitting Cribbs' left side, keeping contain. The "other guy should have finished the play when/if Cribbes was forced back inside.

    In the end, we totally agree.
    51 and 41 had the outside contain they got down field and set up at the 35 yard line.
    Forced Cribbs inside.

    82 (he was the outside contain/ hotman at the bottom of the screen at the line of scrimmage) is the guy that 55 and 37 try to cut off of in that wedge of sorts.

    46 had the middle lane in the middle of the hash marks.
    55 and 37 were the guys were covering the lanes to 46's right side. They made that cut to try to go inside of 82 and both got hung up on 82.

    51 instead of forcing his Brown into the play to keep that lane small, spun the opposite way to try and go down field. His Brown followed him out away from the wedge that was holding up 82, making that hole bigger for Cribbs.
    Good or bad?

    The two guys that Chilly was talking about were 37 and 55.
    We named 55, 37 should be Frampton.
    They thought that 51 was forcing Cribbs inside.

    Sorry SIA. I know can be abrasive, but to be honest, I only talk to Marrdro that way because I know he can take it.

    He does get me riled up.

    BTW Marr. Guess how many times we ran it on Sunday? 34 times! 34 runs, 21 passes. You know what that is?

    D-Rey and Percy are going to be studs. I've been closely watching these guys, and the potential is almost limitless. They might not ever be of the Hester caliber, but they are going to be good, and they work really hard at their crafts, good things to come me thinks.
    I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

    BTW, when 82 tried to slide over to get at Cribbs one of the Browns grabbed his shoulder pads in the neckline and held him.
    He would have had a difficult time getting to Cribbs, but it was a hold.
    Oh well that happens on every play doesn't it.
    LOL!
    Yes, Darius Raynaud is held at the point of attack.
    The defenders arm even goes out with Raynaud when he tries to pull away.
    Easy flag, but not as easy to see in real time with all of the blocks.

    Like the fumble, which went right into a Vikings player who was touched on the ground by the only Browns player near the play but was somehow inconclusive on review; like the Favre to Rice TD ruled OOB; and like the pass interference that was incidental at worst, the refs missed the call.


    Who knows, maybe there was some backside holding on the Vikings during Petersons big run aswell, but it didn't get seen.
    Then again, maybe there wasn't.
    The calls didn't go the Vikings way on Sunday; that is certain.
