| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Presnap strategy: Manning > Brees? - BobBoucher on 1/21/14 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...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| How to stop the Saints - BobBoucher on 12/23/13 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...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Predictability part of the running game problem? - BobBoucher on 10/28/13 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...

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...

Fast forward to this year. Lee leads LSU to 9-0, is among the few leaders in the nation in passi...

sorry guys i dont have time to check, but was curious if we've faced any 3-4 defenses yet this season and how we matched up?
Obviously the 3-4 gives up a little size, but gains in speed and athleticism. Is this matchup good for our rushing? how about passing?
