  6. BDL Discussion Thread 2018

    I've received nothing from Seoul this week. @TedLavie
  7. Camden Hood Rats Offense This week we take on Seoul, our old foe from the classic Injury Bowl a couple years ago. They've been a perennial contender for a while now and we'll need our A game to take them down. This week we want to focus on moving the chains rather than just strictly looking for big plays, using our offense to help play defense. Here are some of our offensive keys to win this game. Quick strike passing: Even with Seoul missing McCoy this week, they still bring a pass rush to be wary of. So we'll let Alex Smith get the ball to his pass catchers quickly and creatively. Lots of tunnel and bubble screens, crossing routes, quick outs and come back routes. We'll use lots of motion with OBJ to get him free at the line as quick as possible, as Slay will probably be following him around. We don't even have to worry about Seoul covering Gordon, because last week not even mentioning his name a single time was "too much praise" for the guy. So he should be open all day. Expect Duke Johnson to see some run in the screen game also. Move our 'move' TE's: With Engram coming back this week, that gives us our two matchup problems back in the lineup. We want to get these guys out in space, so aside from their usual in-line roles, we'll move them around the formation with the rest of the pass catchers. We'll kick them out wide (see how the Browns used Njoku in the redzone at WR last week with success), move them into the slot and sometimes even out of the backfield as sort of an H-back to a lesser extent. Seoul is an athletic team but the combo of size/speed these two have is going to be hard to match all game. Run at a pass-oriented front: The Seoul DL is speedy, but that also comes at the cost of bringing some size to the table. So with Michel as our bell cow and Johnson as our do-it-all back we'll work our run game in sync with our quick strike passing game to look to eat up clock and leave the Seoul offense on the sideline. We think our OL is powerful enough that we don't have to be predictable and run at one specific area, we can focus on an expansive run game play calling and attack the entire DL from side to side. We'll also bring in Orlando Brown Jr from time to time to form jumbo sets to run out of. Take the occasional shot: With most of our offense designed to pull the defense in closer and closer, we can use any one of the speedy players we have on this offense to take some deep shots during the game. This is an area we'll look to get rookie Courtland Sutton more involved too, as he's been providing big plays so far this year. Defense (4-2-5 base press man coverage) With Seoul getting TY back, and us having well documented injury issues in the secondary we'd imagine they're going to spread the field and air it out. Here is how we plan to slow them down a bit. Press man to aid our pass rush: Our biggest strength has always been the ability of our defensive line, which is finally back at full strength with Grady Jarrett back and Irving rotating in. We're going to play press man to disrupt the timing of the Seoul WR's and beat Ryan up. Ward will cover Hilton, Worley will go size for size with AJ Green and the speedy rookie Maddox with take whoever their third guy is, speedy rookies Coutee or Callaway or whoever fills in. Darius Leonard draws the Kelce assignment and Collins is responsible for RB's in base sets. Cover 2 shell: With Seoul's ability to get deep, we feel the best option is to leave two safeties covering halves. Normally this would present an issue with Kelce having the middle of the field open, but with Leonard playing man to man against him we feel like we can minimize him just running away from anyone and eliminate deep passing from Seoul. Big nickel sets: As often as possible, we want to get our best players on the field. That means our 3rd safety McDougald. He'll come in against any 2 TE sets, when dime packages are needed or even if Seoul decides to employ Drake as an "OW" and plays him space more often than not. Seoul Dragons Offense Pass, pass, pass.Our goal this week is to engage in a shootout vs Camden. Just like us, Camden has DB issues. Just like them, we have a bunch of weapons to make them pay for it. Unlike them, we have the QB who fits that gameplan. Expect us to come out with a 70/30 pass/run ratio (which will obviously vary depending on the flow of the game). We expect Camden to come out in a primarily zone defense so we’ll have a lot of flood concept and trips formations. We will target with our routes the outside zones at multiple levels, giving a good option to Matt Ryan to throw to. We will also target the middle of the field as Camden starts Jewell, who played 7 snaps last week, or a terrible LB like Collins or Ragland. We will also use a lot of go routes as we believe we can beat Camden corners deep. Williams, Coutee, Amendola and Kearse will rotate, Williams playing as an outside deep threat while the others will play the role of slot receivers exploiting the middle of the field. Should Camden go with a man heavy gameplan, we will adjust and throw a ton at Kelce, Hilton and AJ Green as the all have matchups they can win. Protect Matty Ice.One of the challenges of playing Camden is that strong DL. While our OL is well equipped, we feel like we could use additional protection, especially with the heavy passing we want to do. First of all, we want to slide protection to the right side every snap with both Jones and Ngakoue on the field. We don’t like the matchup of one of them vs Schraeder, and we would feel better with Zeitler helping out. Mack or Saffold vs Hicks 1vs1 is a matchup we feel we can win, ditto with Jarett vs the other one. We will also more often than not provide additional help with a RB staying in the backfield or running a delayed route, or a TE chipping an edge player. We will insert Heuerman in the lineup on some snaps to stay on as blocker too. This could come handful as Camden likes to run zone blitzes. Running draws.In a pass heavy gameplan, we expect Camden LBs to bite the pass and drop back in coverage. Therefore we will run a lot out of draws to exploit that. We also will look to run outside, directly towards Ngakoue. Howard gets the majority of the snaps as he is a the better runner and blocker, but Drake and Montgommery will come in and be used more as pass catchers out of the backfield. Drake will also be the change of pace back. Defense Stop the run.Sony Michel has been brilliant the last 2 weeks, albeit against 2 terrible defenses. We are wary of him and we certainly don’t want to want Camden to install a ball control offense. We want the ball on offense often. So we will have 7 guys in the box more often than not (either with 3 LBs like in our lineup or with Edmunds as a SS) and our front 7 will put a premium on gap discipline. Force Smith to beat us deep. We know Alex Smith. He’s been our backup QB in these last few years. We know he isn’t great under pressure, and he isn’t great at beating people down the field. We will therefore stack up the middle of the field with 3 LB or with Edmunds dropping in the box. We will rotate Edmunds with Bradham with Bradham playing more in running downs and Edmunds more on passing downs. Marcus Williams will play deep centerfield to prevent any catch and run opportunities for Camden receivers. Zone coverage. We don’t necessarily match up well 1vs1 against Camden receivers. We recognize that and will play 80/20 zone coverage, predominantly in cover 3 with Slay and Desir outside and Williams in the middle. We will also have some cover 2 looks with Edmunds at SS. In man, expect Slay on ODB with a safety up top, Fuller on Westbrook and Desir on Sutton/Gordon/the other WR, Hicks on Njoku and Hightower on the RB. Pressure Smith. Alex isn’t really good when pressure is on. In fact, he tends to manufacture it a bit. We will throw some zone blitzes with Hightower or another LB as the blitzer. We’ll also rotate our DL a lot to keep them fresh. Atkins will play the vast majority of the snaps, with McLendon and Williams (70/30) sharing the other spot. On passing downs we’ll have Long or Okwara kicking inside too. At the edge, heavy rotation. Chubb gets the start opposite to Ingram with his 5 sacks in 10 days performance. Okwara (3 sacks in 2 games) and the Philly guys will rotate. The quality of our rotation should pan out in the 4thif it comes to that.

  10. Motivation: We're looking to get our 1st win of the year and ruin Orlando's day with a crushing defeat at home, that all starts in executing the plays and letting the Mahomes Magic work itself. Portland Offensive Gameplan: We're gonna more or less let Mahomes have free reign in the passing game, since this is a revenge game for Mahomes since he was traded from Orlando we'll let him do as he pleases. We'll also focus on getting the ball to our WRs and TEs while keeping a ground game going to keep Orlando from just blitzing every down. The Passing Game: Mahomes has established himself as the best QB in BDL and will look to prove Orlando was wrong to trade him for pennies on the dollar this week, Mahomes will be be allowed to audible and adjust plays as he sees fit and we'll focus on getting deep against an Orlando secondary lacking the speed to cover our weapons. Orlando's edge rushers are quite the fearsome bunch especially since they're starting BDL stud T.J Watt (you're welcome) at OLB, since Orlando came out in a 3-4 base set last week we'll look to take advantage of that as much as possible by taking deep shots as soon whenever they use that defense, if we can't get anything going deep we'll attack the middle of the field specifically targeting Davis. Davante Adams will be our no.1 WR and will be featured heavily, I expect Ramsey who isn't nearly as good as his reputation will cover him. Boyd will be our slot WR and he'll see quite a few targets this week, he'll play outside in 2 WR sets and in the slot in 3 wide. In 3 and 4 WR sets Bryant will be the no.3 and Sanu will be the no.4, we'll take a few deep shots to Bryant to try and take advantage of Orlando's issues in the secondary. Austin Hooper will get the nod at TE and will be a do it all TE but he'll mostly be limited to being a check down option for Mahomes and a blocker when needed, he'll get a bunch of targets since we feel he's a mismatch and is finally coming into his own this season after being a 5-50-1 guy for most of his career. Charles Clay will exist as the no.2 TE and will rarely see snaps unless we bring out 2 TE sets. We'll feature our RBs in the passing game a bit to keep Orlando guessing, McCoy is healthy and despite being stuck in the bill's "offense" he has played well. Peyton Barber will be our no.2 RB and despite what his stats suggest he is a functional RB who can do all the things required of him, we'll split the touches about 60:40 to keep McCoy fresh and healthy and get Barber some touches so he can shave off some yards on Orlando's defense. We'll move the pocket with some bootlegs and use play action quite a bit if we can get the running game going, if we don't get it going then we'll adjust and start supplementing our lack of a running game with a hurry up offense. The Running Game: LeSean McCoy and Barber will split carries 60:40 with McCoy receiving the major edge in carries and touches, we'll try and establish our running game early to help tire out Orlando's defense for later in the game, we'll leave a RB/TE in to pass protect as needed. The Blocking: In case of injuries, Beachum will play LT/RT, Jones will play C/G. We'll also leave a RB/TE in to pass protect or give extra attention/blocking to a pass rusher if someone proves to be a problem, most likely we'll slide extra protection to T.J Watt whether that's a double team or a RB/TE to help with a chip will vary throughout the game. TDLR; Make Plays on the ball, take advantage of turnovers, Keep the Mahomes Magic going, Get revenge or something, Attack Orlando's LBs in the passing game, get our running game going early and use that to help set up play action. Portland Defensive Gameplan: We're going to play 2 deep safeties to keep Kamara, Gronk, Evans, Robinson etc. from making big plays down the field. We'll mostly be playing zone coverage while mixing in some man with Cover 3 being our base zone defense and focusing on blitzing Rivers as much as possible. Pass Coverage: We'll be playing zone defense on 70% of the snaps with a lot of blitzes, we'll probably blitz on at least 40% of the snaps to get after Rivers and disrupt Orlando's offense. Trufant will shadow Evans in both man and zone he'll also get some help over the with Evans for a decent chunk of the game, Jimmy Smith will man the no.2 CB spot and should be able to handle whoever he is assigned to cover on the play. If Evans/Robinson go into the slot the CB/Defender assigned to cover them will follow them into the slot, Brandon Carr otherwise will be the no.3 CB/Slot CB. Orlando's offense is overflowing with weapons but they lack protection on the interior and we'll look to take advantage of that with zone blitzes and a lot of different looks in coverage, Rivers is no idiot but he'll have a hard time figuring out our coverage scheme this game since we won't repeat a single coverage play. Orlando's offense is a nightmare to cover so we won't give anyone any extra attention instead we'll send 5 or more on 40% of the snaps to get after Rivers and disrupt the play as much as possible, our lineman will go up to tip balls and our LBs will be ready for checkdowns since Rivers tends to do that a lot. As mentioned we'll be using 2 deep safeties and a cover 3 base zone defense for most of the game, however since we won't be repeating a single coverage play we'll need to cover our bases and we'll do that by covering Orlando's weapons. Glover Quinn will be tasked with adjusting the pass coverage as needed, I'd expect my front seven should be able to put pressure on Rivers and control the LOS. Telvin Smith will be the signal caller on defense and he'll make adjustments if Orlando tries something not outlined in the gameplan. Since we'll be mostly playing zone defense we'll be sending 5 or more for more or less the entire game and I expect we'll get burned but we'll make Orlando hurt just as much as they hurt us. Orakpo+Smith will be able to get after Rivers along with Barrett rotating in, Short+Jones should be able to keep Orlando's inside running game in check and Pierce will rotate in with Jones on running downs/goaline situations. Telvin Smith will make adjustments as the signal caller on defense as needed, we'll make sure to give equal attention to Orlando's weapons as well as try to take away River's passing game checkdowns, I assume Orlando will feature Kamara a lot more heavily in the passing game this week with Gronk potentially out and we'll adjust for that by having Martinez/Smith be covering Kamara on every single play, obviously they'll rotate and swap with other defenders depending on the play but Kamara will always have someone covering him. Malcolm Jenkins will cover Gronk in the redzone, but other than that we'll mostly have Jenkins back and let Gronk be Gronk, If Gronk is out Jenkins will move back to his deeper safety role and will more than likely help Trufant cover Evans and slide into his usual role of doing whatever is required on the play. Gronk didn't travel with the patriots and if he is out which is looking very likely, we'll put the attention we would've given to him on Kamara and Robinson. Evans will still be doubled for a decent chunk of the game since we feel he's Orlando's biggest threat in the passing game with Gronk most likely out. Run Defense: Orlando has a solid stable of RBs, Kamara more or less being the perfect satellite back with Freeman being a solid in between the tackles runner. We won't worry too much about the running game since we're focused on taking care of the passing game but we will be blitzing on running downs, so I expect my defense to not get too burned by the running game here. Za'Darius Smith stepped up in a huge way last week with 3 sacks, he has earned a starting job opposite Orakpo and has already set/tied a career high in sacks, he'll be a big help in the run game and in getting after the QB. Our focus isn't in defending the run it's in defending the pass so don't expect us to sell out to stop it here, we will do the bare minimum to keep them from gashing us in the running game but our goal is to stop the pass and get after Rivers. TDLR; Play Zone, Win our match-ups, Limit their weapons as much as possible, Blitz on 40% of the snaps, keep them out of the endzone, don't be afraid to give up big plays in favor of turnovers/sacks, Keep Evans+Robinson+Kamara in check. Orlando Ospreys Offensive Game Plan Scheme: Balanced Formation: I Form (2 TE) / Single Set (3 Wide) / Shotgun This week we’ll focus on ball control and time of possession. Our opponent has one of the weaker defensive fronts that have been exploited by just about every team in this league. Offensive Line We’ve got some injuries to our normal starters this week, but fill that we can make the adjustments to survive this game. The 6ft/8in 380lb Trent Brown gets the start at right tackle, while Lane gets a much needed rest to rehab his high ankle sprain. Starting center Nick Martin will replace Mike Pouncey if he can’t suit up. Passing Rivers will be without Rob Gronkowski this week, so we look to keep our offense balanced using double tight end sets, designed to give additional blocking at the LOS as well as some chip and down the field blocking for Kamara coming out of the back field on crossing, screen and wheel routes. On 3 wide sets, we feel that our offensive line can hold off their defensive pass rush, giving Rivers adequate time to get deep with Mike Evans, while using the sure handed Sheppard and Snead over the short to mid-range center field, in an attempt to keep their safeties focused on the middle and utilizing the TE in shallow underneath routes. We’ll maintain a fair amount of pre-snap motion with our tight ends as well as the play action pass to keep this defense guessing. Rushing Expect us to churn the yards out in chunks, running to the heavy side of our line, basically some good ole’ Tom Coughlin smash mouth football. We’ll load up one side up heavy with personnel and run to the side, using Carson and Coleman as much as needed so that Kamara provides us 100% for all 4 quarters. In the first half, we look to provide BDL with some good old school football, pounding the rock on first and second downs and looking to burn up as much of the clock as we can. Opening it up to our passing game and Rivers to exploit a tired Portland front 7 in the second half of the game. Defensive Game Plan Scheme: 4-2-5 / 43 Base Portland’s has yet to post a 100 yard rusher, so while we will respect their ability to run the ball our focus will be disrupting the passing game. So we’ll primarily work out of the nickel defense, using our base 43 defense on short yardage situations. Using a solid rotation at every position. In the nickel, our defensive front will be Matthews and Watt on the edge and Suh and Clark manning the interior at DT w/ Wagner and Davis at linebacker. In the base 43, we’ll move Watt to strong side linebacker, and closer to the LOS adding an extra pass rusher and to contain the edge, with Bennett coming on to man the defensive end on the right side. In either package, we’ll play mostly Cover 1 Man to Man, with Ramsey covering the number 1, King covering #2 and Jaire Alexander covering the slot. In packages that our opponent puts 4 wide on the field, James Bradberry will come on and replace Wagner. Single high safety will be Jackson and Gibson getting the responsibility of tight end coverage. Davis and Wagner will be assigned to keep the running game either on the ground or through the air contained. The only real time we’ll shift to zone coverage is when Portland puts two tight ends on the field. Zone coverage will be press as well as corner blitz packages, with zone blitz packages in the front seven. Our main focus, is to limit the play making ability of Mahomes by pressuring him into making arrant throws. We believe we’ve got the pass rushing ability to get pressure on him from our front 4 and using zone blitzing when in zone coverage, we also feel that we can count on some coverage sacks based on the personnel matchups in the secondary.

  13. SINGAPORE Week 7 Motivation - None Offensive Strategy Formations: I-formation / 2 TE/ Single Back Scheme: Run (55%) vs Pass (45%) Running Attack Best RB duo in the league has a tough task this week against Watt and Company. We will endeavor to move the ball with a chip from the TE on Watt allowing cut backs into the middle of the field. Being able to run keep pressure off of Carr to win the game. Having the best FB in they league that is also a passing threat helps our multi-dimensional offense keep Gotham’s D guessing. Passing game Baldwin is getting healthier and moves up to they No 2 spot this week. He and Allen form a solid duo on the outside with Baldwin moving to the slot in 3 WR sets when David comes in. We get the X-men this week so the task won’t be easy one but, we will look to get Carr into a rhythm early with some checkdowns to the backs and use Ebron as a safety valve as well. David Moore is our 4th WR and is on a hot streak. We have enough Red Zone weapons to keep it close on the road. Defensive Strategy Formations: 3-4/ 3-3-5 (Big Nickel) / 3-2 Big Dime Scheme: Cover 1 / Man Free Blitz Coverage Wentz is hurting for weapons but we will put our best foot forward and try to keep DT and Sanders in check. We will be in Nickel more often than not because of Gotham’s propensity to spread things out. Claiborne will cover Thomas, Waynes comes in to cover Sanders on the outside with King covering Landry out of the Slot. We should be able to limit YAC enough to force Wentz into long down and distance plays which force multiplies our pass rush. Safeties will man their normal single high and robber spots. Run D We respect the 3 headed monster of Johnson, Breida and Henry. Our 3-4 front will make it hard to find lanes as Donald, Snacks and Joseph are all High Quality Interior defenders. New addition Bilal Nichols keeps them fresh off the bench and will start a trend toward more 3-4 looks in the future. Smith and Bostic take over as the inside backers and will be used to corral any receivers over the middle. Pressure Hunter is one of the leading candidates for DPOY. Tied for the sack lead with Watt, he will look to put Wentz on his back. 33.5 sacks in 3.5 years and just turned 24. Future is bright indeed. Rookie Avery will man they right side with relief from Taco Charlton and Kendricks. TLDR: Carr for life. OFFENSE - 3WR/TE/RB - Single Back Set After overthinking our plan last week and getting burnt, we go back to basics and our familiar 3 wide single back set. The object here is to get a LB off the field in Singapore’s base D, force another CB on the field and lighten up their box presence. Carson Wentz is going to be the focus this week, as we look to have a balanced attack but with a 65:35 pass:run ratio. Seoul’s strength on defense is their D Line, particularly up the middle, so we will avoid attacking there and instead attack the weaker back 7. We will spread the ball around to Thomas, Sanders and Landry, diagnosing 1 on 1s, taking what the defense gives us. Opportunities should abound as we feel all of our wideouts have plus matchups in single coverage. If Singapore plays a cover 2, we look to hit Swaim on intermediate routes and Johnson on outlets. In the run game, we are starting Johnson and look to attack the edges against a lighter box. Again Breida gets 2 - 3 dedicated drives and Henry serves as short yardage/goal line, but his use will likely be limited due to the Sentinels strength on the interior. Snap counts will be in the 55:35:10 respectively for our trio. Aaron Donald will be the player we focus on in our blocking scheme, doubling him on every play with whichever G he lines up over and Kalil. Snacks is a great run defender, hence our avoidance of running up the gut, but we feel he can be contained on passing downs with singles. DEFENSE - 43 Single High Since Singapore likes to run heavy 2 wide offenses, we are moving to a more traditional 7 man 4 down lineman alignment. We still match up well and look to limit the run game with a heavier box. With Marcus Cannon out for this contest, we expect an historic type day from Watt if left alone against the recently benched Martinas Rankin. With Watt likely doubled or tripled, Quinn and Jones should be able to benefit from singles in the pass rushing department. We expect Singapore to attempt to gain traction with their run game, as leaving the game in Carr’s hands against our secondary is a fool’s game. With four down lineman and a 7 man box, we think our front can handle a beat up O Line and limit the effectiveness of Hunt and Connor. Rhodes and Howard draw man boundary coverage against Allen and Davis, with Norman coming in to cover the slot against 3 wide sets, taking Cunningham off the field. Randall will play single high with our LBs playing a middle zone against short and intermediate routes, providing coverage against Singapore’s bevy of TEs and RBs. They will play read/react and should prove effective against both the pass and run, playing in the box.
