Re: Zierlein Breaks Down Improvement Needed For Run Game
I had gone through/reviewed several coaching manuals/tips on the web and rewatched a few videos before I made that call.
I think it is you that was quick to come to a few conclusions when you made the video that breaks down that particular play.
All the things that you touched in the last few posts were already addressed by myself in previous posts, if only you would read them.
Tell you what, I just pulled up that Jaguars game in week 11.
I found 3 similar plays from the same formation against the same front.
In the first quarter, at 9:48 and 6:35
In the second quarter, at 10:27
The TE did exactly what I've been saying that he should; that is to work in tandem with the OT, stay with the block longer and stronger instead of barely laying a hand on the SDE like OD did on that particular play.
Also, I noticed that both D. Brown or Newton have the same first step.
So my next conclusion is that the Texans taught their OTs that technique, and that Newton did not have a bad first step in the play being discussed.
(This is something I said I wasn't sure of; that the Texans may have a different way of doing things from other teams/coaches.)
