    It's pretty clear that TE is not meant to be a big receiving threat in our offense. Sure they might get one big catch a game, but that's it.

    It would be interesting to see how we fare when using playaction and compare it to when TJ drops straight back. That 10 square-in to Wade was open all day vs. Chicago.

    Also, I am so gald we stopped using Chester and AD on the field at the same time. I've been saying it all year. A pro bowl FB blocker is better than a decoy.

    I just hope we don't try to catch them off guard by passing early. That has worked maybe twice all year. Stick to your guns!
    Again, with the guns....... You did that just to crack me up right?
    ;D

    Re: Stacked defensive lines are slowing down Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson

    Personally I like the fact teams stack the box.
    Sure it may effect AP now but it also give TJack the chance to develope.
    It also gives the coaches a better opportunity to see if he read defenses better too.
    It's a great chance for TJack to shine or falter.

    Keep stacking the box.
    It's better for the long run.

    I agree but it affects our rushing offense, it's clear that especially after the AD injury we havn't been so productive on rushing as we've been before that's a big downside. i do like the fact TJ get's the opportunity to get alot of passing plays and ( like last week ) getting the yards

    Re: Stacked defensive lines are slowing down Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson

    What about motioning AP out the backfield? The defense will check off of their blitz and bring him back in for the quick hand off. This will catch some of the defensive players off guard. What about starting him at a slot position anf motioning him down the line for a hand off. Screens take time but it's not a time issue we are having. Teams are crashing in.
    We need to get outside of the blitz( corners and outside LBs) screens help do that. RUn AO and Ct at the same time. RUn a screen wit Ct and a fake hand off to AP. Trust me the screen will be wide open for CT.

    I am sure the Skins will crowd the center.
    -Make PurpleJesus runs to the wings,It is proved is more effective than trying to the middle ,lastly...
    -Try some flea-fick or a bomb once again.
    -Use more
    Playactions ,Chiller!!!
    -Screen passes have usually been succesfull for us too.

    I can't agree with that. AD is best when getting to the edges and in the open field. Chicago shut him down in the first half by attacking the edges with their DL and letting Urlacher blitz up the middle.

    Re: Stacked defensive lines are slowing down Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson

    I love it when you all come up with all the fancy ways to run the ball against an 8 man front/box.
    Believe it or not offenses with running backs less talented as our have been facing this style of defenses for years and have been successfull running against it by doing the following running plays.

    This is the primary staple of our running attack.
    Nothing fancy.
    Blockers do thier job, the RB's do thiers.
    Very effective in a Zone blocking scheme with a great one cut back.

    Plung/dive
    A "plunge" (or "dive") is a type of play in American Football in which the ball carrier (usually a running back or a fullback) attempts to rush through one of the gaps immediately to the left or right of center, denoted as gaps 1 and 0 respectively. It may be run with or without a lead blocker, though when run with a lead blocker it may be called a "lead dive".

    This is the another staple of our offense and is best suited to run based on the fact that our backs are great one cut runners and our ZB scheme really opens this hole up.

    Off Tackle
    An off-tackle run is a play in which the running back runs to the outside of a tackle through a hole created by the tackle and tight end. The fullback lead blocks and attempts to block the outside linebacker. The back also has the option of running to the outside of the tight end and some off-tackle plays are designed specifically for this. Off-tackle plays are somewhat slow to develop and can be broken up by heavy pressure on the center of the line.

    Unlike a sweep, an off-tackle run requires specific blocks by the offensive tackle and tight end to create a hole. This often requires a coded discussion at the line when the defense shows its formation.

    I still like this one.
    It doesn't take alot of time to develop/execute there for it is good when they are zone blitzing us as well as when they aren't.
    One drawback is the RB doesn't line up as deep as he normally would during a normall running play which limits his ability to pick and choose which gap/hole he wants to hit.

    Draw
    A draw is a type of American football play. The draw appears to be a passing play, but is actually a running play; in this way, it can be considered the opposite of the play action pass. The idea behind a draw play is to attack aggressive, pass-rushing defenses by "drawing" them upfield, leaving more open space to run the ball. Draw plays are often run out of the shotgun formation, but can also be run when the quarterback is under center. These types of draw plays are sometimes referred to as delayed handoffs

    Hell for that matter we could even run one of thier staples against them.
    We have the back(s) and the OL to pull it off.

    ;D

    Counter trey
    The counter trey is a misdirection running play used in American football.

    This play is designed for the offensive team to feign rushing one way, then attacking the defense in the opposite direction. In a counter trey right, the center, right guard, and right tackle block left as if the play is going left. The left guard and left tackle "pull" from their positions by moving behind the other linemen and around the right corner.

    The running back takes an initial feint step to the left, then cuts back to the right, receives the handoff from the quarterback, and follows behind the pulling left guard and left tackle. The left guard and left tackle will usually be blocking smaller linebackers and defensive backs downfield--this mismatch favors the offense. The counter trey requires quick, athletic linemen for good execution.

    Many teams have run this play, but it first became well-known when run by the Washington Redskins in the 1980s. In particular, guard Russ Grimm and tackle Joe Jacoby would open up massive holes for John Riggins, George Rogers, and Earnest Byner.

    Long story short, OL must do thier job, as well as the FB, TE, and RB's when it comes to running the ball no matter how many are in the box.
    With our talent we should be able to get anyweres from 3-5 yards at a pop on almost every play.


    Not as sexy as a long run or a deep ball but it will keep thier D on the field, our D off the field and we will win the game.

    I may be mistaken, but the counter trey is a mainstay of the
    Wing-T offense? Wouldn't that throw off the 'skins D? ;D
    Tuco the world.....

    I miss the crossbuck LOL!
    That counter trey as run by the Skins was a sight to behold. Almost unstoppable.
    Gibbs was kind of the run innovater like Walsh was pass innovater.
    Gibbs still likes to run. But Collins can pass. So we are going to need some pressure.
    I see this as a very physical game that will be won by the team that physically dominates and takes care of the ball.
    We need to get the lead early. We got behind the Bears and started pressing a little. We need to do what we are good at. Run the ball and physically dominate the line of scrimmage. Win the time of posesssion battle.
    If we attempt to change our stripes; we lose!
    If we keep pounding it over and over, we will eventually break off the big runs.

    What do you call the Peterson Iso play we run? I know I'm not the only one who has seen that.
