Someone with Ewing's combination of blocking and receiving ability thrown in the mix...

This offense is like the mutha&#{%in' HYDRA!!!

Cut off one option and 3-4 more spring up to bite you!!!

The Hydra offense...Hmmm...

A monster on a tshirt with Ryan, Julio, Roddy, Gonzo, SJax, Quiz, Douglas, and Ewing's heads attached to it... with feet that look suspiciously like Matt Bryant's shoes...?

I was thinking that we might see much less use of the fullback position than we have in previous years. With Jackson such an effective pass catching threat, it seems like putting a slot receiver on the field and forcing the defense into a nickel situation puts tremendous pressure on linebackers. They would have to respect the run and bite on play action or drop into coverage but still protect the flats. That seems like a lot to ask of two linebackers.

True but one of the things Brady is good at, is catching the ball as well.

I read in the "Who Impressed You Today" thread that Ewing was lining up all over the field and figured that Koetter had found ways to take advantage of his athletic versatility, though his snap count might be lower than it would have been with Turner.

Having a solid fullback will do wonders for our game. We will all be talking about Ewing after the NO game.

He will be like our John Kuhn from GB. Except he is more athletic. IIRC he had like a 37 inch vertical at the combine.

After watching him at Wisconsin, Ewing is probably one of the most athletically gifted FBs in the NFL.

Looking forward to seeing how big of a role he will have in the passing offense and how defenses will have to change it up trying to defend another potentially dangerous weapon on the field with an already ridiculously dangerous cast.

He can be very effective in short yardage situations to confuse the defenses, both Ewing and Jackson can catch the ball out of backfield. Falcons can run the ball or just pass it to Ewing on a fake.

Was thinking they might use the fullback more- although more would be about 20% of the snaps. Gives them a power run look with 5 effective pass catchers-that's hard to defend too.

If Ewing can run good routes- also gives them the chance to have the D set up for power run, then the Falcons shift into a 4 wide set w/ SJax as the RB.

There's no doubt we could have run the ball better last year if Ewing was in there. I agree, it could be a huge addition if he's healthy and can live up to expectations. Besides, Cox was soft and did not rise up to the occasion, so to speak.

Ewing has a lot of versatility. Mike Cox he ain't.

Bradie "The Human Highlight Reel" Ewing, centerpiece of the "rifle" offense that revolutionized the NFL.

I agree. I was on board with a lot more 3-wide sets last year as I thought it would open up the run game. It didn't. Maybe if we had a more capable slot receiver, but HD just hasn't taken the next step. I think it was easier for defenses to get their responsibilities as you knew that Turner was either getting the handoff, blocking, or dropping a pass in the middle of the field. He was no threat in the flat. Having Roddy, JJ, TG, and the Ewing and Jackson in the backfield means there are 5 pass catchers on the field (instead of 4), 2 that can get a ball in the flats and do damage (instead of 0), and potentially 2 guys who could take the handoff although I don't see too many carries for Ewing on the year. Maybe 10-20.

I hope that this formation will make us the unpredictable monster that I thought the 3-wide set was going to be last year.
