Ajc Says Teams Have Bracketed White Leaving Middle Open.

Perhaps that explains Gonzalez having a good game against philly and Turner running for 100 in both of the first two games. I guess that is why we have thrown to Jones so much too. If tampon bay starts out that way, we need to run to Roddy's side and make em pay and then play action pass to Gonzalez. If we force them into single coverage on the outside then we make them pay there. They are susceptable to the run so far. We need to man handle them inside to get the offense rolling and then steam roll to a huge victory. Im tired of such tight games against these guys.

The thing is they are bracketing BOTH WRs, that's why the middle is open, teams were bracketing Roddy last year, the difference this year and why the middle is so open is because they are doubling Julio as well.

Exactly, and that is why getting rid of Jenkins was such a big deal. Jenks could be handled with a single CB, while Jones can't. So teams have to double the outside and leave the middle more open instead of Single one and drop the safety down into the middle for either Turner or Gonzo.

Julio hasn't needed to beat a team yet. The Bears had Ryan scared and they all played a bad game. The Eagles were weak right down the middle.

I think Julio has a big impact this game because they will have to put Talib on Roddy, leaving Julio to match up with Ronde who is showing his age. Tony G will draw extra attention tomorrow as well due to his game from last week. I hope Julio, HD, and Quizz get some love because they can really open up the offense

Which also explains how bad Baker and Reynolds are! :angry:

All of this analysis makes a lot of sense, but the big question is: Will Mularkey realize any of this and use it to our advantage?

Throw to JJ until they start doubling him. When they start doubling both JJ and Roddy, start throwing to Gonzo and Douglas in the middle. Scary receivers make them pull their LBs out of the box and Turner takes off, etc.

It's so perfectly clear to us, but it requires thinking and changing up during the game. Could require a little CREATIVE thinking and the jury is still out on that particular attribute (See: screen.)

You missed the whole point I think...in they are already doubling JJ, see the interception against the Eagles, he was bracketed High and Low but Ryan still threw it trusting him to be somewhere and he ran a lazy route. But look at the runs turner is getting, the receptions over the middle on check downs going for 30 yards, and the tds to Gonzo........

This already means we are reaping the benefits of having a dual threat on the outside. Now if we can just give Ryan more time to throw, it would be awesome, but until the O-line gets fixed, then we are still going to be stunted some.

Harry Douglas should be getting the ball more for sure. I don't get it. Despite Baker's complete lack of athleticism and strength, we should be getting the ball out in those situations (like across the middle, in stride, to Douglas) rather quickly.

On the defensive side of things, Tampa's going to run Blount down our throats so I'd really appreciate if this comes as no surprise and we stuff him. There's no reason why we shouldn't beat Tampa on both sides of the ball.
