Great read! Thanks for posting it.
Interesting read, I didn't really understand the mechanics of ZBS too well. Thanks for the info! Rep
If you don't mind crossing enemy lines, I found this... over there.
AT and thunderkyss, both of these are great finds. I especially like the Gibbs quotes, seeing that he doesn't do interviews the coaching clinics must be the only place to find this info.
I think Jerry Wunsch's article brings up a good point. In order to keep a defense off guard and on their heels, an offense needs to be able to run both the man and zone blocking schemes. I think the Texans' offense is limited (especially in short yardage situations) by running a zone only scheme. While Dennison is a Gibbs protege, I got the feeling from his All Access interview that the Texans would include in some man blocking schemes. As Wunsch mentions, mixing in a power blocking run on occasion can confuse a defense.
Beat me to it, Lucky. Must spread the rep to you and for Thunderkyss' complimentary article. But definite rep also to AT for a great article.
