  1. The culture created by those head coaches was mentally weak. They created a mental barrier about the "playoffs" and each time this mental barrier created to much adversity for them to overcome. Fastforwad to Quinn, he teams did fine in the playoffs but their mental breakdown was closing out games you can see the team mentally go "omg not again" late in games and it just created a domino effect of failure. These are all signs of lack of mental toughness which is a sign of a weak culture for a football team.
  2. Honestly 3-4 schematically is the most multiple front to run, if you stunt a 3-4 to strong or weak it just turns into a 4-2-5/4-4
  3. You thinking Iowa 335 with the actual 3 high look and broken stack ? or the regular 335 stack ?
  4. the 40 time was added to help measure players for special teams coverage. Even though people treat it as the end all be all you never really run with the same conditions in a game.
  5. If i had the resources i would conduct a study on the % of veterans that are now police and if there is any correlation to increased policy shootings .
  6. Nah i dont think so. Something I think is the biggest difference between Brady and Ryan is Brady is willing to be the bad guy. He clearly has a edge that Ryan does not have. I could see Brady checking to a run (he did it last night) despite what the call is.
  7. Right, that is not indicative of air raid that is how that coordinator ran it that is all i am saying. You still have the same reads and you still have the same timing for the 5 step and 3 step. He should have learned to read coverages then but it is not required to be decent at running air raid.
  8. Honestly i dont think he needs anything.His approach to coaching is what will carry these players farther than upgrading any one position. We are a really dub low iq football team right now. I think we will see a big change purely from the culture.
  9. 1. Air raid is not fully shotgun. 2. Sarcasm does not always come across in the posts my bad. 3. most NFL teams have the same air raid passing concepts in their playbook. But you were not saying this so its all good.
  10. Dont they run Air raid ? are you suggesting air raid does not prepare qb's for the pro's ?
  11. Bro. Thank you . I was looking for a answer to some problems with my team and this solves a lot of that.
  12. I want to challenge the idea of balance saying what if it is more important that all the skill players touch the ball ? What is balance is really about ball distribution more so than pass/run distribution ? What would you say to that ?
  13. This is all my opinion so take it with a grain of salt. Passing is more flexible on how it attacks defenses than running. Running in football has been figured out completely. If there is a innovation in the run game of the NFL i have not seen it additionally NFL is slow to innovate in comparison to college football and high school football. If your defense has a sound gap scheme whether that is 1 gap or 2 gap you can shutdown runs. The field of play is only attacked horizontally and with the speed of modern nfl players you cant rely on winning the 1v1 match up and gaining positive yards. Run game relies heavily on a numbers matchup game where you can shift gaps and balance to gain a extra blocker. This is why in youth football, and high school football you can get away with running Beast formation, single wing, wish bone. The disparity of speed is so high that if you beat the 1 v 1 you win (touchdown) Passing game attacks the defense vertically (minimum of 30 yards) and horizontally. Passing plays rely on spacing, timing, and conflict. You can target specific players easily in the pass game and take advantage of their weakness. You also dont need to be 100% on passing as it does not take as much time to score. This adds to the pressure of the team that relies on running because once you get behind you dont have the ability to score quickly at that point the game plan falls apart. TLDR: it is easier to dictate and exert pressure on a defense through passing the ball than it is on running the ball. You have more concerns on defense with passing because the nature of defense is you have to give up something you cannot protect everything. The game is made for offense to succeed.
  14. THANK YOU. people should stop ragging on the dude he is already gone. I am certain he learned lessons from his time here and will be able to move forward and become a better coach.
  15. I really think its a chance for us to get our Sean Payton and dominate or be competitive in the south for YEARS. If he doesnt work out in 2 or 3 years we are at the point of rebuild anyway with Ryan and Julio contracts.
  16. I think its time to move on from the old guard. I like Wade but I feel like defense needs to move forward to catch up with Offenses and you need new ideas for that.
  17. He is closer to SP than McVay imo. Without the drugs though...
  18. I prefer Lincon Riley since that is not going to happen Joe Brady is the next best thing. I think the game needs balance but not a run pass distribution but a distribution of touches between all 5 of the skill players. I also feel like the risk is worth it for Brady such that if he fails by that time we will have the capital for a full rebuild and reset. As much as I hate the Saints they have built a organization that is effective and the problem with the Falcons is less about talent imo and more about the organization. If a Young Coach and Young GM can bring some new energy im with it.
  19. Its a song. Let It All Work Out - YouTube
