Where does William Moore fit into our plans in the 2010 season?

I think we could see Moore play as a 3rd safetey in a 3-3-5 and as a 4th linebacker in a 3-4-4 alignment. During peaseason I noticed a few of theses funky sets and saw William in what appeared to be 3rd safetey and 4th linebacker roles. I'm sure we didn't show most of our sets and blitzes during preaseson, but these funky "experiments" seemed to be very effective in putting on the pressure and getting a stop. Also remember confusing one of the QB's into a time out. Did anyone else notice this? And do you think we will see some of theses formations during the season?

I could also see Moore rotating with Coleman, especially early on running downs, till he's ready to take over full time. What do ya think?

Bottom line is we have got to get this kid on the field. He was hitting hard and flying around during preseason. We are also lucky to have a solid vet like Coleman so we can bring Moore along slowly, but Moore got me excited. He looked good during preseason, you can see he has got talent and is going to be a playmaker.

the staff will find a way to get this kid on the field, i think he might get on the field on passing downs since thats one of his strengths, and colemans weakness... i wouldnt be surprised at all if by the middle to end of the season we make that switch perminent.... i mean we've seen it from the CB position, if someone is out playing the other they will make the switch....

It's a good problem/issue to have, but I do have the same question. I definitely liked what I saw from him and preseason and feel like we've got to get him on the field in some capacity from time to time.

Coleman is solid, no doubt. But you can't keep Moore, that talent, on the sideline. Obviously they drafted him to start. Injuries thus far have derailed his opportunities, playing time and camp battles.

Also since they drafted Moore, Decoud has emerged at one of the saftey spots. I believe that Moore was drafted to take over for Coleman however. So that should work out nicely. Imagine--- Decoud and Moore as the safties. Decoud has shown he is a ball hawk and a big hitter. Moore has shown the big hits so far, and hopefully he will be a ballhawk like his stats indicated in college.

Either way I think a saftey combo of Moore and Decoud, 2 playmakers, will strengthen our D for years to come!!! I'm am siked to see our, Mike Smiths, D finally come together this year!!! Pressure up front, playmakers in the back! Bring it!!!

The Coaching Staff can get real creative.

They were very creative on defense this preseason. I believe that they were trying diffent formations to create pressure. Basically blitzing out of theses crazy looking formations creates confusion for the QB and gets William out there with first team D without taking out Coleman or Decoud. This let's us remain strong at the saftey position while an inexperienced but talented player gets some snaps. Since we were terrible last season on 3rd down, I think we tried some new stuff to create pressure. These formations, 3-3-5 and 3-4-4, we will see during the regular season in blitzing 3rd down situations.

If you think about it when you blitz you leave a void wherever the player comes from wether your in man or zone coverage. Therefore theses formations help disguise what the player blitzing resposibilities would be if he were not blitzing. That helps screw up the QB's reads pre snap. Pretty clever I think!

That's an easy one. He'll be used to lay the wood on the opposition... B)

Ya, there is no question in my mind about William Moores ability to hit players HARD. I saw some really good hits in the preseason that reminded me of Scott Case. Moore just knocks the crap out of people then just pops back up jogs back to his spot and looks ready to do it again!!

It has been so olong since we have had someone at safety who is going to scare offensive guys coming across the middle. THe couple of hits I saw in preseason has me salivating.

:P

Indeed!!! And the great newz is we have 2. Decoud showed he know how to lay the wood last year. I do believe that Moore is the bigger hitter though. I mean the dude is huge, fast, and runs right through people. Moore is a monster for a safety. His run stopping is good enough to start IMO right now. I think its his reading of offences and his pass coverage that need to improve before he takes over for Coleman, hopefully some time this season

If I'm in the top ten of this draft, I'm looking very hard at drafting William. This kid is the closest thing that I have seen coming out of college to Troy Polamalu. In fact, he just might have better coverage skills than Troy

Injuries concern me more than Moore's ability to play zone coverage. If he isn't up to scratch yet in covering space or players, you can bet he soon will be. Moore is a monster and has potential to be the best defensive player in the NFL. He can impact the same way Bob Sanders impacts the D, cover as well as Ed Reed and punish as much as Troy Polamalu.

Man your post is excellent! You made some dynamic points that make a lot of sense! I certainly hope that we see "stuff like this" during the real season and working to perfection as it blows opposing team QBS minds!!! :lol:

GO FALCONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
