Guys, normally I am SUPER critical of our pass block schemes. But come on. Chamberlain presnap is in an angled 2pt stance with the DE playing a 7tech. Not a wide 9 or some crazy blitzer off the corner. He just flat out took two steps to his right and let the DE go...turned him loose. Didn't even touch him.
Perkins has LB/S responsibility. The LB doesn't blitz...he either needs to help Laskey chip the other DE or go to the flats. This is on the play/scheme. Perkins did what he was taught. He wasn't taught to release or provide WDE support
Laskey 1 on 1 with a DE is also hard for me to fathom on the playside. Again, if Perkins helps I think its ok. But solo again is a tough thing to execute consistently...
But regardless of all that. Chamberlain flat out whiffed and it wasn't a scheme issue. The scheme gave him the right stance and alignment. If laskey gets a good cut this play is a non-issue.
Now, I can show many plays that to me are scheme issues in the passing game. But this one was not close to the biggest offender
I would say that Laskey's inability to control the left DE also effected the play, because it caused JT to stop. Had Laskey or Perkins atleast put up a decent fight, JT would have had the ability to "attack" the LOS (it helps them square their shoulders), which is fundamentally sound technique that QBs are taught to do when passing on the move. Like I said earlier, I think JT could have also helped by reading the defender out on the flat (the LB) and anticipated his read and released a bit sooner without stopping, or using his speed to run past the DE that beat Laskey and released once he was past him.
Basically it was 7 v 4 in pass protection, and we let 4 guys beat our 7. Obviously, Chamberlains poor technique to cut the angle and inability to cut off the R DE is the most glaring mistake, but there were a few other things that we could have done better to get the ball to the receiver that was pretty much wide open.
