Default Re: No Huddle vs. Our Defense

If Vonta is on the field, we'll be in our base defense, 3-4. The battle here is going to be stopping the pass enough from the hurry up to force them into a more run-oriented formation so we can use the creativity of the 3-4. Then we have to stop the run.

Collingsworth pointed it out a lot and it's something I have been concerned with: a lot of our best stuff comes out of the 3-4. When teams spread us out, you lose the play-calling advantage Wade brings because you just can't do as much disguise. There's 4 guys who are coming and 1 or 2 potential blitzers, but it does take much of the guessing out of the equation for the offense.

Teams like the Packers, Saints and Pats are likely to give us more trouble than the rest. The Ravens are trying to because something in that mold, so we'll see how both our teams are adapting to this new offensive system.
