Miles MUST split time w/AJ and Harris going forward
Posted by BobBoucher on 11/11 at 10:24 am
AJ has been with the team just short of two full seasons and played one full. He's arguably regressed, this with an incredible O Line and stout running game. I'm no QB guru but what stands out is that he struggles if his primary is covered and is unable to improvise and make plays happen. That s...

This article indicates its a forty year trend, so maybe its not as political as some might try to make it. Which begs the question why i would post it on the poli board. it may not be caused by any one political philosophy, but the solution, if there is to be one, will almost certainly have to ...

Article "Heres what can be learned from Putin-Hitler comparisons"
Posted by BobBoucher on 8/11 at 10:37 am
There's a few more parallels than you might think. althought i doubt Putin is a racist sociopath. This article points out that Putin has created an environment not unlike Germany prior to WWII. Interesting read. [quote]My loathing of the bad Hitler analogy notwithstanding, you have to be pretty...

Presnap strategy: Manning > Brees?
Posted by BobBoucher on 1/21 at 9:45 am
Seems like the Broncos have something pretty good going pre snap. Heres what I've observed: "Omaha" is used to tell the offense that the next command is to snap the ball. Omaha can be a safety valve for a dwindling play clock to snap the ball quickly and abort presnap checks. (Eliminate delay...

How to stop the Saints
Posted by BobBoucher on 12/23 at 9:09 am
Blitz on early downs and get physical with the Saints WRs at the line and dont let them get off with out a jam. This is effective for multiple reasons: 1 -Saints pass a ton on early downs and as a result youre more likely to catch the Saints in a favorable matchup and less likely to get bur...

Predictability part of the running game problem?
Posted by BobBoucher on 10/28 at 8:39 pm
I say "part" of the problem because the blocking is horrid at times, but I heard a stat during the game yesterday that the Saints throw the ball 80% of the time when Sproles is in the game. I recall a while earlier in the year Sproles ran it quite a bit. If CBS can dig that up you know scouts ca...

Pats plan to stop Sproles and Graham -NFL Live
Posted by BobBoucher on 10/11 at 3:20 pm
Just watched a segment on this game. They showed video of the Pats putting two defenders at the line to hold up Gonzales much like punt return teams double up the gunner. In this case they aim to hold up and keep Graham within the 5 yards so its legal. This might be mostly a red zone defense to tak...
