Mr. Scot

Game Notes - Week Four

Recommended Posts

nice write up - one mistake though

And of course there was the weird "did not report' penalty on Travelle Wharton that negated our lone Wildcat play.

not to nit pick but, I would have sworn we played the wildcat 2x against Chicago

lol. Speaking of Plaxico is he still in prison. Wouldn't mind having him as our #2.

He's a Jet.

Might have. I took a phone call from my girlfriend mid-game and missed some plays.

If Rivera can find a way to nullify Drew Brees the way he did Peyton Manning back in SD, it'll make winning that game a lot more possible.

I agree. Peyton's biggest problem is the 3-4. He struggles against the Pats of old, SD, and the Steelers. For some reason he just can't quite figure out the 3-4 as well as he does the 43. That was the big reason for Wade in Houston.

Brees on the other hand makes his living on the 43, hopefully we can keep him contained.

Same Style (zone blitz) but different alignment.

On the flipside, Newton did okay against the 3-4 schemes he faced. Had more trouble in his first outing against a Cover Two, but looked better on the second try. Good sign, in my opinion.

Going against a 3-4 pretty much always befuddled the Fox coached teams. It'd be nice to not have that be true anymore.

Honestly, I'm very proud of Newton so far this year. Much more poise and leadership than I was expecting. If he gets just a bit better on the accuracy front...look out.

Our run defense is ranked 31st.. our pass defense is ranked #6. I think we matchup well with the Saints.. I think we can slow down Brees. This game is very winnable. We just can't shoot ourselves in the foot.

The Eagles are ranked #11 Pass Defense and #30 Run Defense.

Coincidence? Or Scheme?

Only problem with this is Ingram... Ingram is not Reggie Bush. He may give us the same trouble Forte did.

I'd agree.

The game will "slow down" for him eventually, and that may help the accuracy issues as well.

To be honest, he's not that far off target now. Just a hair too far away on some throws. The majority are still catchable.

As the saying goes, that's why they practice.

I'd add one thing to this (rather than starting a new thread).

Much as the result might annoy me, I don't really blame Tillman for flopping. Trying to draw penalties is part of the game. Lord knows some of our own have pulled similar stunts more than once (Jake Delhomme did some flops that were worthy of a World Cup soccer player).

So yeah, it sucks, but it happens. Somewhere down the road we might benefit from it ourselves.

Holy crap someone is worse against the run than the Panthers?

Going by total yards, the Rams (144 more yards given up through four games). For the record, number 30 is the Eagles (17 fewer yards given up than us).

Best in the league against the run so far? Dallas, followed by Green Bay and Baltimore.

Great as always Mr Scot!

Anyone else notice the pass protection on the long throw to Smitty down to the 1?

Wharton actually pulled from his LG position over to Pep at his LE position to pass protect. I know it was a play action play, but I found it interesting that Wharton's assignment would be to pick up the LE on a passing play.

Great design by the way!

see the 3:07 mark
