Well, what else is there to write about? This is off season fodder.

new madden, uniforms, steve smith dancing, otah's fat knees, peoples opinions on players rankings, arriving jerseys, new safeties, i could go on. As a basic a play as it is, it is still pretty complex and somewhat educational. I'll take this any day over the other garbage that gets read on here.

Is this the same play, but flipped? Because Williams will take this to the house all day.

That with Cam rolling to the other side so he can run, or pass to Smith who's 1-on-1 with a corner!!!

it may not be overly unique or new or creative or innovative, but it's something we couldn't necessarily run very effectively with wharton at LG and brockel at FB (he was our starting fullback, right?) the point of the article is that adding silatolu and tolbert opens up these types of formations for us to be effective with.

often heavy passing teams have lacked a good running game, or a good defense, or both (see: Saints* up until 2009) and then hit another level entirely when they got one or both. we're about to have an outstanding passing offense as well as a power running game worthy of the jets or san francisco or the 2008 carolina panthers, and an improving defense on top of that. bitches better watch out.

Actually there are a lot of plays that we executed last year that were tons more creative and inventive. Here is a TD by Williams on a option toss play where the action goes the other direction that is a lot more interesting and something we didn't do that much in the past.

Notice how the initial action goes in the other direction led by the fullback and Newton. Williams makes one step to the right and then circles back left and Newton tosses him the ball on a naked sweep to the backside where Williams outruns the pursuit to the corner and takes it to the house. I will be glad to X and O it for those who need more than a video, but that play is a lot more creative than a zone sweep to the outside which is old as the hills.

I can give you a tons of those...................

Before we start talking about what Silatolu and Tolbert can do, perhaps they can at least take a snap or two. Tolbert actually has not done that much fullback work and is not known as a lead blocker. He has done it some but his value last year was as a banger type back and receiver out of the backfield not as a lead blocker. As for Silatolu he hasn't even won the left guard position yet, seems a might too optimistic.

As for Brockel leading and Wharton pulling, they were pretty effective given that we led the league for most yards running over the right end position where is where this play happens. Unless it was all about Bell and nothing else.

Well if Amini pans out like Hurney and Rivera hope, I think when he pulls he will maul the man he's blocking all the way to the ground, not just push him to open a hole for the RB, and allow him to stay in the play and tackle the RB 25 yards down the field. So that should be pretty fun to watch over and over again on my DVR. Again like p55 said, it's not certain, but that's why he was drafted in the first place.

I hope Amini is a beast out there and his supposed mean streak is totally true. Still it is optimistic at best to assume he will dominate his rookie year. After all Gross and Kalil are all pros but they did not dominate their rookie years either.
