Then apparently you should be a defensive coordinator somewhere in this league, since we put up 30+ points in our last 3 games against coaches who get paid 6-7 figure salaries to try and stop us

 

 

That's just a silly criticism. There's a reason certain formations most often run similar plays: because that's the play most effective with that formation. How many jumbo formations are going to involve a 40 yard pass? Why do fans instinctively recoil when they see a four man receiver set and the ball goes to the back on a draw? You run the formations that are most conducive to the play at hand, and that is what sets up things like play action, because you establish a particular play with a certain formation, until surprising the defense when they sell out to stop that play.

 

And the variety of calls within the formations has been very good of late as well. Another nifty play we ran against Tampa was Tolbert's touchdown catch: we showed a lead power run with Tolbert blocking for DeAngelo, but instead of blocking Tolbert "whiffed" on his block and sprinted out to the flat, while Cam faked the handoff to DeAngelo before flipping the ball to Tolbert for the TD. So, while the play itself resembled a simple lead run for DeAngelo with Tolbert acting as the lead blocker, it was actually DeAngelo who was "blocking" for Tolbert as he held off the defender long enough for

you must feel like such a genius on sundays between the hours of 1-4pm while you sit there on your couch with one hand down your pants and the other buried in a bag of doritos, and stare at your TV and say "Run Play."

 

While youre doing that, defensive coordinators around the league are sitting up in their coaching boxes with an endless stream of stats, information, player personnel combos and other things while they are trying to decipher if the offense is running a "53 blue speed 6 front over" or a "sprint rex 8-zac chicago", determining what to do based on the opponents previous situations, and what blitz packages to send with the current personnel the offense is using.all of this going on every 30 seconds, knowing each and every decision he makes has HUGE ramifications. 

 

But yes, continue to sit there and explain how you (random guy who spends his time on an internet forum) could do a much better job

Well, I certainly have you working overtime trying to impress me, someone else or yourself, not sure which.

 

Funny how I'm the random guy, but you're right there attempting to prove your worth on the same internet forum.
