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.

It's not a big deal.

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!!!

pretty much except they overloaded the weakside with an extra TE and ran to that side, opposite of the WR. Guard pulled the same and other blocking assignments were similar, gotta like a nice TE sealing the edge on a corner to get that bounce outside.
