Presnap strategy: Manning > Brees? - BobBoucher
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 - BobBoucher
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? - BobBoucher
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 - BobBoucher
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.
