Denver can obviously run the ball very well, and should they get the lead, we may not have that many scoring possessions. We must get an early lead and maintain it or it will be a long weekend. I think Carr has to come out hot and ready to go. We can not afford 3 and outs at the beginning of this ball game. Denver is not going to pass until we stop their running game, so QB pressure is probably not going to be an issue in the beginning unless they have spoted something about our secondary. Their tendency is run, run, and run again if they can.
I'm wondering if anyone has an idea whether it is more or less difficult for a zone blocking scheme to handle a 3-4 defense versus a 4-3... My tendency is to thing it's tougher on them because we have more movable parts that make it more of a challenge to cut and create well-defined cutback lanes... What do you think?
