BayouFalFan Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 Oh yea we have Ovie! Think about this...1. Not many teams in the NFL use a blocking FB anymore. So that means most of the teams we play won't be as ready for it as other teams that only use a single back.2. Using Ovie to chip at a DT or pounding the LB will get old on those opposing defenses. Add the fact that now we have a RB that weighs 237 and runs a 4.4. I was hoping we would get Turner since last season when I heard he would be a FA. With his size and speed he will punish anyone in the secondary who tries to tackle him 1 on 1.3. If you noticed our OL played better when Petrino left. They went back to a standard blocking scheme. That was with undrafted backups to the low drafted starters. Dimitroff will go after early in the draft BIG OL and we will again be able to pound the rock. Cleveland was not the 1st team to turn around once they got their LT. Mark my words, when we get our new LT we will win. ALOT!4. This running game will set up the play action. Roddy White and Laurant Robinson are speed demons who can catch. RW went for over 1000 yds last year with a team ranked last in passing game stats. Once we hit a few big passes, defenses will have to cover them. At least one will have to be doubled. Safeties can not let them get behind them. Now we can go right back to the run. It is actually the offense New Orleans uses with Duece. Once Duece went out due to injury their play action did not work and they lost games. Brees did not look like the Pro Bowler of last year without his big back and play action.Redman only has to manage the game, which he can do. Similar to Brees, he can hit the open WR in the seams and holes of the defense off on the play action.5. I believe the way of the future for defenses will be to rotate, rotate, and rotate. Look for us to get at least 2 if not 3 DT in the draft. And let me add that they will play no matter where they are drafted. A rotation at DT and with DE between J Anderson, J Abraham, and Chauncy Davis will keep us fresh and able to stop the run. If we move down in the draft or trade Hall for picks it will be to target a MLB. We don't need Hall. He is a single man to man cover type player. We will be in zone most of the time and williams may fit the type they want. We need someone bigger than Hall who can hit. Houston will have to grow up and cover the Panthers Smith WR when man to man is needed. He just has to cover him for a couple of seconds till our DL gets to the QB.
