  • Week 7 The Formula To Success

    We are all obviously very disappointed with the outcome of the game Sunday Night. All this talk about how there's a formula to stop Peyton and the Broncos. Press Man, Cover Two, Four Man rush that gets constant pressure and hits on Peyton Early and often.

    Just as there is a formula to stop Peyton or so the NFL thinks, there's also a formula to beat that formula to beat him.

    Peyton needs to be sharper and more patient. Baltimore played Cover 2 in the playoffs, and JAX and Indy ran press Cover 2. You beat Cover 2 through the seems and running the football. If this is the formula to stop Peyton, we need to exploit the weaknesses of that formula.

    How do we do that?

    Peyton needs to take what the defense is giving him. In the Cover 2, the areas that are the most vulnerable against this defense is the flats, short to intermediate throws underneath the safeties, putting receivers in motion to help against press, running receivers against the safety forcing him to choose, and the middle of the field. Countless times in the game thread there was complaining about, another run, or another pass into the flat. That's how you beat the Cover 2, unfortunately execution was terrible!

    http://blogs.thescore.com/nfl/2011/1...ts-variations/

    The three areas where the offense can improve to beat this formula:

    OLine- Better protection in pass blocking, getting to the second level against favorable box counts.

    RBs- There will be favorable box counts all season, our RBs need to get it together and run the ball for chunk yardage. The real estate is there, our RBs must take advantage. They also need to have the ability to catch passes in the flats, the edge is a weakness in the Cover 2.

    WRs & TEs- The middle of the field and short and intermediate routes are there. Thomas and Welker need to have a bigger role against this defensive scheme. DT and Decker will need to sell comeback routes, which will open up the double move later in the game.

    If we can run the ball well, a safety will have to cheat to stop the run or even sell out and come down in the box. If the WRs sell the comeback routes, there will be a couple of times when the double move will catch the defense. The big plays will be there, they may be reduced, but there will be opportunities, so we need better execution.

    It's fantastic that your account was lost. Too bad you found your way back. All of the past drivel is hopefully gone as well.

      If the Broncos can protect better, they shouldnt have a problem beating press man/Cover 2. Its that simple. Give Peyton time to throw, and he'll hit that fade route. And with Welker and Thomas, those one-on-one match ups should be exposed.

      Running the ball better would help, if that ever happens.

        Score more than the opponent.

        That was easy and didn't need nearly as many words. Its got to be short enough for twitter now days man.

              It's impossible to beat cover 2 without a consistant run game and when the db's are getting away with blatent illegal contact all game.

                The Offensive Line has to improve, pass protection and run blocking. I watched very favorable box counts that we couldn't run against. And Peyton felt constant pressure all night.

                  Have to be able to run the football! You have to replicate that same physical play DBs are doing. Attack them in the run game, passes to the flats, and screens. You also use there over aggressiveness on double moves.

                    Defenses in the NFL are fads just like style and fashion. They come and go in cycles. This type of defense can be beat, physical running, taking what the defense gives in coverage, hitting the big play when it's there.

                      This is why I say easier said than done. Conditions couldn't have been much more favorable (other than Franklin being out) to run the ball on Sunday night and we couldn't do it. Indy has a weak run D and they were pretty much inviting us to run.

                        It's very concerning. It's either the offensive line or the backs. I think it's a combination of both.

                          It was ridiculous what the Colts D got away with. They were draped all over our crossing and seam routes. Not much you can do when the officials call a game like that.

                          But the lack of any running game vs. a cover 2 is all on us. We need a North & South power back. We do not have one. Behind him we got hands-of-stone-still-learning-to-block Ball & the fumble-fingers-lightweight Hillman. Not to mention a patchwork O-line decimated by injuries. Moreno is playing out of his mind right now ,but he can only do so much.

                          This will hurt us come late in the season in weather.

                            Good read on this very topic on IAOFM today. I'm sure the usual suspects will be along to tell us how much it sucks but ignore them and check it out.

                              It's dissapointing to see Lacy running hard and Ball having zero impact. When he is out there he misses a block, or drops a pass. Obviously it's way too early to declare a draft pick a bust, but at the moment Lacy looks like a player we missed out on. Ball does show great potential, but there isn't any consistency.

                              As far as Hillman, he actually showed well in passes to the flats and attacking the middle and edges. He shouldn't have been the RB in the goal to go situation there..
