Passing might not always be 3rd and 8 where the other team knows it is a pass. Roll outs could be used more for the 1st or second down or even in a 3rd and short.
How is that different than the Speed Option?What about SD at BB, AB 1 orbits around to be a lead blocker AB 2 blocks on that side as well. Then JT could option with the SD on the edge with lead blockers. I guess with JT speed you might be able to just let SD or any BB also be a lead blocker as well just to get JT to the edge.
What it looked to me like he wrote was the QB (JT) and the BB (SD) would run the Speed Option with the ABs lead blocking. Did I miss something?It is different because you don't have a pitch back. The motion A back becomes a lead blocker. It is basically a Qb power off Tackle.s
The link is to a discussion we had during Spring practice when concern was raised as to Thomas' physicality in short yardage. I stated then that we could move; Days under center, and Thomas to wr, and Smelter to ab without substituting thereby preventing the defense from adjusting personnel.[/QUOTE]Could you say a little more about this. I am not sure I understand.
It will be interesting to see. I agree that JT is very adept at buying time rolling to the right. He is much better than going left, at least last year anyway. Also, with his height it might be easier to see down field.
It's good in theory to have the other team respect the entire playbook. But last year for 3rd and 1 to 3 yards, we ran 66 times and passed 0 (zero). Our team would probably pass out if we passed on 3rd and short. (tic) I think the odds support rushing, even when everyone knows we are going to rush - we made the first 47 of 66 times rushing. But passing is a crap shoot south of 50% (33).
I agree that there is more reason to replace JT with SD than replace TB with SD. Especially for 3rd and short when everyone knows we are going to run already ........
Is this the real reason were're seeing Days at BB?
every qb right handed likes rolling to their right if they have to scramble and throw the ball. As you know, this is nothing unique. But we can't do this so much its a tendency that limits the offense and you can essentially "guess" scheme off of
On of the easiest throws for a right handed QB is a roll left WR come back route on the sideline....all the QB has to do is get far enough left, and square his shoulders and the target is right there literally to hit coming back at him. almost impossible to defend if in man covg (like we see a ton) and the ball is placed on the sideline half.
we have to be multiple, even if the passes are 60 40 right to left that is fine...good enough mix
