  1. Let me also apologize to you, I didnt mean to hyjack your thread or start a **** throwing war. I am just eager to talk football x' and o's . If it came off like I am just telling you that you are wrong I am sorry.
  2. The alignment of this defense suggest quarters, that inside linebacker and that safety will have responsibility over the quick game passing. The alignment and cushion of the defense will indicate to the qb what the coverage is, I did not imply the distance is not important but in relation to the slant or any route under 7rds that db with the cushion of < 7 does not have the responsibility of protecting against the slant. Of course when the ball is in the receivers hands they will chase, of course when the ball is in the air assignments no longer matter. The initial alignment of this defense does not indicate that a slant will be available. The over arching point is that you cannot use 1 metric and one players alignment as the sole determining factor of what is available and what is not. If you see something else in the example clip that will cause the slant to be open please share.
  3. Again, it was not to gain credibility it was to explain my low post count i dont need to prove or gain credibility from anyone on this forum. Second We been over your point you are assuming that 7 yard cushion is man coverage. You have a Safety sitting in a flat read and a ILB under . Why dont you people try reading before jumping on the "he thinks he knows it all train" .
  4. I just asked you to show me, I pulled that clip because that is the same base defense I run and it is the same yardage cushion mentioned in the Op but im irritated now so **** it. Maybe when football starts we can actually talk ball without people getting in their feelings.
  5. Lets try this again since you seem to be pretty smooth brained, "Next Gen has an interesting stat on Ridley. In 2019 he led the NFL in Average Cushion at the snap. He was given an eye popping 7.3 yards of cushion, on average, each snap. Would really love to see Koetter exploit this by getting Ridley some quick slants etc....seems like an easy way to get free yardage and force the DB’s closer to the LOS. Then hit em over the top " There is nothing wrong with this statement, however the implication is that the cushion given by the corner is exploitable. This is is because for some reason everyone assumes things are as simple as man coverage or zone coverage. If the Op saw something or knows something that can exploit this that I cannot see I want to know. Therefore I challenged his presumption. This is how adults learn and grow through disagreements. If the Op can show me how this can be exploited I can take this same learning back to the field and I become better because of it. I am only here to discuss football and improve in seeing the game and share with fans for the team I love. If you are not even allowed to challenge a OP to show concrete examples when talking ball then what is even the ******* point of being on this form ? You want to sit around and circle jerk analytics instead of using the insight to learn from it cool. Do your thing , i guess it is my fault for wanting to have a deeper discussion about the analytics. Carry on dude ******* basket case flying off the handle because someone challenges the Op's assumption.
  6. Noob ? I have been here almost 10 years. I dont post much because I am a coach, i also didnt search much because this was the first game... in game pass. I am not trying to prove anything other than football is not as simple as you and some of these members try and make it out to be. there is way more involved in coverages in modern defenses than to say if he has x amount of cushion easy run a quick slant. No worries though I wont post anymore enjoy your madden strats.
  7. Look I dont get to have a football season this fall, so this is where my film study is being used now lol
  8. I know how averages work, however when presented with the situation that the OP mentioned which is that is a db is +7 off the line that the quick slant is automatically open well that is just not true. Its more nuanced than this thread implies.
  9. Not with this coverage, that line backer will absolutely destroy ridely if he runs a slant and if he does not the safety will. They are in a split field coverage with the boundary side playing what looks like clamp and the field side playing match quarters. That Apex defender reads hi hat he will immediately start getting wide with freeman, towards the flat, the safety is in a flat read and the corner is in mod. That is not a lot of space at all and will end in 2 ways, ridely getting destroyed or a pick 6. Most NFL teams use some form of triangle coverage.
  10. 7.3 yards off the ball is average and you would be throwing the ball to the apex defender for a easy pick 6.
  11. Well I was waiting to see if anyone else went into more detail. I dont have the time to do a fancy post with photos to show what I am talking about. In short the players were forgetting assignments, not communicating on the field, and not using common sense. Run fits were bad, most of this was ishmal and cambell. Things i saw I saw Ish over run "open doors" that he was supposed to fill and not fill to take on a lead blocker. I also so very slow reaction to what the play was. Same thing for cambell simply taking himself out of plays created huge running lanes. Passing game, I saw Oliver just doing frankly weird high school ****. I remember a few games seeing Trufant play spot drop coverage where he was covering grass the entire play. There were inside breaking routes from the number 2 receiver that were not signaled to the line backers . It was just no teamplay even on a basic level. It looked like something was just missing.
