Ok, so now do you guys believe me that it can work in the NFL?

Watch the 9ers carefully as I think this will be an important tweak to make to the zone option plays we run next year. It gives the runner the ability to run downhill rather than starting from a standing position.

Also an interesting twist is how San Fran will sometimes send a lead blocker at the outside defender and have the QB run it regardless. We did some variations on that, but the 9ers run it to perfection.

Ha I was the second post. I think most people at that time still had no idea what it was. Only a few huddlers had even seen it at that point.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
