Not sure if Tolbert has the ability to stand up a LDE after a free release from the T, but maybe.

That said, I absolutely love the fact that we are getting some creativity into the mix on O here. Many of the Fox years were tough to endure. And if Smitty was not Smitty I can't imagine.


i think he can being 5'9 and 240 lbs. low man wins in football, especially in the trenches it is about leverage. i can really see Amini blowing up whoever and what ever in the hole when running a power play. him pulling is going to be something to watch.

How dare you make Huddlers read about football!

Whether or not this is directly applicable to this offense it's interesting to see what is expected of players on any given play.

I wish I had the time to delve into this kind of stuff more to better grasp what I'm watching.

Actually from what I can see that running play is not very creative or inventive. We have run variations of it for years. Plus while he calls it a power blocking scheme, his very description of not blocking specific defenders but those that appear in front of them as the play develops is the very definition of zone blocking which is what we have done for years. Not trying to put a damper on folks enthusiasm and maybe I am the clueless one but this seems to be a very standard play which we have run for years with Fiammetta and Hoover under Fox.

The article refers to it as the "traditional 'Power O' in a two tight-end, fullback set". I don't think the author is claiming that it is creative or inventive.

looking at the formation and the play one would know that this play has been in the pro game for a long time. what would be interesting is running some sort of option read off of it, which i think we did this past year with Dwill.

So why make a big deal about it or write an article about a play in every team's playbook or one we have been running for years? My comments were also directed to people's statements that this was something that Davidson would not or did not run and clearly he did.

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