Gotham Gashslayers


With Tyreek still out this week, we are going to come out with our best weapons and take advantage of a depleted Camden defense and attack the Rats wherever they leave holes open.  

We have the good fortune of facing a Camden linebacking corps that is in bad shape, missing the concussed Leonard, featuring a subpar Josey Jewell and a maybe back from injury Todd Davis.  Either Camden plays some scrubs at LB or brings their safeties up in the box. If it’s the former, we’re going to pound the rock mercilessly. If it’s the latter, we’re going to take advantage of a weaker defensive backfield and work off of play action to push the ball down field.

We think Wentz will have a fair amount of time to operate in the backfield against a beat up (Again) d line.  With a heavier run game this week, we hope to wear down this unit and get into their depth players. Our O Line should afford Wentz enough time to find mismatches.

We will employ a 3 wide single set if Camden gets too greedy and packs the box, spreading out their d forcing another CB on the field and risking a deep play if their safeties are creeping up.

DEFENSE - 3 3 5 Stack

With Lamar Jackson showing great success this season against terrible defenses in the NFL, we are going to challenge him this week against a talent laden defense with a scheme that will challenge his football acumen and decision processes.  We are running a 335 Stack this week with the objective of dictating the game script and forcing Lamar to adjust post snap, rather than pre snap.

We expect Camden to run their offense from multiple formations, but with our base defense, we can cover all bases with our versatile defenders out of this primary zone defense.  With a limited ground game aside from Jackson, we feel this is the best way to limit Lamar both on the ground and through the air, particularly against multi TE sets.


An important advantage of this base is its ability to mask blitzes, as they are imperceptible pre snap and can come from anywhere.  This is going to challenge Lamar's decision making, his biggest weakness as a QB.


Keeping Jackson off balance and contained should be attainable with this scheme and personnel package.  Matching Camden's weapons with flexibility is covered.  Bottom line, Lamar is going to be looking at the same defense every time he lines up, but won't know what's coming.  Here's a few more blitzes we'll add in:




Camden Hood Rats


This week we go against our old friend and mentor the Gashslayers. While he's completely old and decrepit, he brings a good roster and thoughtful game plans to the battle. His time left on this earth is short, but he will always be dangerous. The defense has some strong pieces to it, but with the right matchups and focusing on a few keys we think we can move the ball. 
Establish a ground game- With how well Lamar Jackson has been playing, defenses are going to be focusing on him more and more. We want to get a ground game established to force Gotham to respect the offense. We'll run a lot of two TE sets, with Westbrook coming off in favor of Delanie Walker to give us more of a physical blocking presence in that respect. Gotham brings good run players on D, but with our rotation of backs combined with Jackson's ability to get out and cause havoc on the ground we think we can move the ball.

Expose zones- We think Gotham will want to confuse Jackson and limit big runs with some zones. If they do, we have two TE's who are true 'seam busters' that can exploit the deep middle of the field in a cover 2 and the intermediate outer parts of the field in a cover 3. Expect heavy doses of TE work if Gotham employs any of the popular zones. Hopkins also thrives in the perfect area of the field to expose these zones. If Gotham decides to use its physical corners to play strictly man, this is ok with us as it simplifies some things for Jackson.

Test the new FS- With Damarious Randall out, Minkah Fitzpatrick will likely take on the role of the new deep safety (as with the Steelers now) and we want to test him aggressively to see where his awareness level is at after playing all over in his first two seasons. We'll run lots of crossing routes, lots of sets with two and three receivers loaded to his side and force him to make quick decisions on where he needs to be to prevent any big plays. Play action and our standard heavy use of RPO's should also test Minkah's instincts as well. 

Defense (cover 1 'robber')
With Gothams favorite choir boy out for a number of weeks, the offense is left lacking players who can really threaten down the field with big plays consistently. This is why we'll be playing a good amount of our favorite coverage shell in the Cover 1 robber. At this point, Gothams offense is more predicated on power, so these are some of the keys to how we want to slow them down. 
Cover 1- This gives us Kevin Byard over the top as a single high safety. His job is to prevent the big play. With their best deep threat being Devante Parker (sub 14 YPC for his career), we can safely rely on Byard and his playmaking ability and range to cover anything that would get behind our players. This coverage shell also allows us to play man to man in press and force Wentz to hold onto the ball longer than he should. With our pass rushers back to full strength, every second Carson has to hold the ball is dangerous for him.

Robber- The main reason we love this coverage is that it allows Jamal Adams to do what he does best, move all over the field and smack people. On almost every coverage snap he'll be a free man, this allows him to roam the intermediate part of the field (where Gotham's pass catchers work) but also frees him up to play closer to the line of scrimmage for blitzes and to help support the run. Gotham likes to run a power offense, and having Jamal Adams being able to play loose and react in run support should really put a damper of Gothams ability to pound the ball. We have 700 lbs of man meat in the middle of our line, so attacking our edges is an opponents best bet, but with good run stopping LB's and Adams providing support I think we have a chance to nullify the run game. Here's a visual of what the robber shell looks like on a down to down basis:


Prepare the trenches- We assume Gotham is going to try to wear us out, so we've loaded up our reserves with defensive lineman to keep a steady rotation, and even a hybrid player like Amani Hooker who can float between safety, nicker corner and dime LB. We come in with a heavy defensive line, so even though Gotham will want to play the pace game, it'll be hard to do if they can't get anything going.
