I hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend. We were working on a new strategy session piece but it's not finished and we didn't want to break it into two parts.
Frank D has posted about the third game in the fanshot section.
Daily quiz: against 4 wide receivers, if the defense is accounting for all receivers, what is the maximum defenders the defense can deploy in the "box" while using 2 deep safeties? One? Zero?
Quote of the day from Homer Smith: The spread offense today features the running QB. Defensive problems come from not having a tackler ready for the QB at the line of scrimmage. . . . As long as running QBs keep winning the jobs, the spread will be the formation of choice. Someone has to tackle the QB. If that someone is looking for a post pass, the QB is going to have running room.
Quote #2: I want guys who get operated on after the season. I want guys who don't have any ego because nobody wanted them. I can't have D***F****. It's intelligence and intensity. Guess who that's from?
Housekeeping update: please download the Veoh web player from veoh.com. I found a 4-hour tape that we will break down in segments in the coming months. Hint: only 153 people have this video, so get excited.
