Pretty awesome watching these plays from here to the 12:10 mark. The 49ers get a hat-on-a-hat, but, since the Bears are sending so many talented pass rushers, one of them is bound to get the QB. Singletary gets through untouched on one play, but still mostly it is just beating the guy in front of you. Roger Craig tries to run to the C-gap but he is unsuccessful but Hampton beats his man
I'd like to help out with some of these articles, BTW. I live in Connecticut, and I was thinking about being an East Coast representative for 11W, also.
The 46 never really caught on w/ the rest of the NFL b/c they no other team had the personnel. The '86 Bears, without Ryan and less 46, were statistically better than the 84 or 85 Bears.
I do like the modern interpretation of the 46 against the spread.
A lot of it comes to the Jimmie and Joes when it comes to beating the 46. Yes, the 46 overwhelms the O-line with confusion and numbers, but a lot of the success comes from the fact that blockers have less help blocking good pass rushers. Last year, Billy Price could have gotten more help against a regular 4-3, but he was mano-mano against his man most of the night. A lot of Buddy Ryan's success was the fact Hampton, Wilson, Marshall, McMicheal, Dent, Brown, Simmons and Reggie White were rarely getting double teamed. He took Pro-Bowl caliber pass rushers and got them double teamed less. A guy like Randy White would have gotten more sacks in a 46 defense b/c he would have been double teamed less
Get a hat on a hat and block the guy + receivers beating man coverage + quick release from the QB = Ohio State win
You need some 46 Jimmie and Joes to run a 46 defense. Va Tech has guys that can cover man and get after the QB. It's really not that complicated it is just different.
If Braxton doesn't fumble the ball in week 1, then let him keep doing it. Let Marshall concentrate on WR
Both will play
I think OSU's defense will be playing more 46, since Bosa will not be playing. As you can see in the first picture in the hyper link, the formation can easily be seen as a 5 man front with two vipers. I think that Josh Perry will be playing one of those viper positions.
The main way our offense, when we had Braxton at QB, attacked the C-gap with a counter play was with the QB counter trey. This one huge thing missing during the Va Tech game last year. By the end of the season Meyer and Herman adjusted their offense
I was calling it wildcat b/c I was talking about replacing the Dontre Wilson and Jalin Marshall packages from last year. I like JT in the red zone b/c of his run and run pass option ability. Cardales number one strength is the deep ball
JT Barrett--Red zone and wildcat.
Deez Nuts will be in the White House instead
I've changed my mind. I want JT Barrett to start.
"This is the base of Urban Meyer's offense--to gain a numbers' advantage to run the football inside."http://www.elevenwarriors.com/2012/01/why-spread-it-is-all-about-arithmetic
2 deep=run because you are up an extra blocker
1 deep=run because you are even in blockers
0 deep= pass
Having a QB that throws the ball well enough to force 2 deep coverage improves the run game. In the last three losses, Va Tech, Clemson and Mich St played a lot of zero deep but our passing game did not make them pay for it in the air.
Yeah, various formations of 2-TE sets is a possibility.
Spread Option 101
2 deep=run because you have a numbers advantage in the box
1 deep=run because you are equal in the box
This is one of the reasons the deep pass helped the running game.
He was using way more than 20%
I do think that JT is better at running the option, but it is really not by that much. The fact that Cardale throws the ball well enough down the field that he gets safeties out of the box helps the run game out tremendously. The fact that 95% of the time the run game is 11 vs 11 with JT and only 90% of the time the run game is 11 vs 11 with Cardale is not that big of a deal when you get safeties out of the box. Tom Brady's spread offense is 0% 11 vs 11 with safeties out of the box.
FishDuck is an excellent site
Both will get a lot of playing time this year. Marshall was going to spend a lot more time outside anyways--look at spring--but Brown's injury will cause him to spend even more time out there.
Watch how Barrett takes 50/50 reads and forces the defender to make a choice on these two IVs
Terminology is a problem here. Cj should not be faking if it is an option. What you are thinking about--I think--is an inside zone read, aka dive or veer.
Barrett is better than Braxton or Jones at reading whether he should give or pull the ball. Sometimes, Braxton and CJ will predetermine what they are doing before the ball is snapped. Barrett does an excellent job of waiting for the last split second to pull the ball and really make the defender bite on the dive
