Props to the OM Coaches....
It was spread across a couple of threads. One was the "you're the coach" thread, but a bunch of you made some good suggestions/predictions that actually came to fruition yesterday.
Defensively, I think we all expected a little more aggressive attack up front, but K.C. really slowed us down with the run. But, ultimately, it was the pressure up there that made the difference... with a couple of key sacks and pressures.
Offensively, we saw almost every suggestion on those threads pan out. Someone suggested the reverse, which we saw. Someone else suggested quick screens, which we saw a few of. The dump-screen was a popular choice, and we attempted to make use of it... and my contribution was to add the Shotgun formation back to the offense, which I was happy to see us use quite a bit today. The only good (imo) prediction someone made that we didn't see was the designed QB run. I'd love to see us slip that back in there now and again.
A lot of those plays didn't end up with huge gains, but it took pressure off of Plummer in an environment where teams are just going to be throwing the house at him. Showing those things this week will help our cause next week, too.
Anyway, if I had more time... I'd dig up the posts and give people individual props. But, a bunch of you really nailed it.
I'll be curious to see what you coaches think we need to do this week... a game where we face a pretty serious uphill battle.
