Motivation - Complete the longest 3 game road trip in BDL history (33,889km) with a win (who makes these schedules anyway) and keep the division lead in the tightest division this year. Beating Matt Ryan will be icing on the cake

Offensive Strategy

Formations:  21/ 12/ 11  
Scheme:  Pass (50%) vs Run (50%)

Playing out of a 2RB or 2TE formation will keep more of Ivory Coast’s linebackers on the field and expose their lack of depth in that area.

We are one of the few teams to use a fullback in BDL and we have the best one in Kyle Juszczyk. His versatility allows us to clear the way up the middle for Le’Veon Bell, provide an extra blocker against Mack or Garrett on the outside, or get involved in the passing game.

Bell will be our bell-cow back again getting the majority of the carries this week (60%). His patience at the line of scrimmage is legendary, allowing our OL to open up running lanes either inside or off tackle. James Conner (20%) and Darrel Williams (20%) will rotate in without losing any capabilities on 3rd downs as both backs are equally good receivers.

This balanced attack out of a big formation will help keep the Rhinos guessing and open up play action in the passing game. We will try and keep the ball out of Matt Ryan’s hands and grind out another road win.

You don’t need to spread out a defense to pick them apart in the passing game if you have solid versatile personnel. We will stay in our big packages for over 50% of the offensive snaps. Play action will allow Aaron Rodgers to survey the field and pick his targets. 

Josh Gordon will be the main outside receiver this game. With IC trading their best coverage man not sure who gets the unenviable task of covering Gordon this week. Volume man Keenan Allen will play in the slot next to Darren Waller and make the Rhinos pick their poison on who to cover over the middle.Both are leading their respective peers in targets this season. Tyler Higbee is the second TE replacing the fullback in 2 TE sets and adds another blocker off the edge who can also bust the seam open.

Our backs are also involved in the passing game as Bell can motion out as a receiver and Juszczyk runs the best fullback wheel route in the league. After tiring out the IC defense we can choose to spread them out some in 3 WR sets with Mecole Hardman getting deep shots on go routes.

Defensive Strategy

Formation:  2-4-5 / 3-2-6    

Scheme:  Cover 1 Man

Pass Defense
Starting with a 2-4-5 nickel to combat nemesis Matt Ryan and company. Alshon Jeffery returns as the Rhinos best receiving option and we will double him with Kareem Jackson in a deep Cover 1 role on post routes. Jason McCourty will play the left side and Bradley Roby the right side. Jonathan Jones mans the slot. 
Deion Jones will cover Jared Cook and John Johnson III will be the spy on Nick Chubb as he was IRL last weekend. In Dime coverage Desmond King II will take the 4th WR. Jaylon Smith when not blitzing will drop back into a soft zone in the seam to take away the easy throws over the middle. We think our secondary matches up well with the IC receivers and can lock them up long enough for our D line to get a few coverage sacks on immobile Matt Ryan.

The Blitz
Preston Smith and Danielle Hunter are our premiere pass rushers on the outside. Hunter gets a nice match-up this week against Dennis Kelly. Aaron Donald can win most of his battles in the middle and collapse the pocket on Matt Ryan. We will use inside and outside stunts to free up our rushers including a few from Jaylon Smith. Everson Griffen will come in and line up inside on dime situations next to Donald.

Rush Defense
Snacks Harrison eats up blockers in the middle and our front six are all capable run stoppers. We respect Chubb and Ekeler but should be able to limit their yards after contact in this match-up.  Having John Johnson as a spy on Chubb will limit his avenues of attack and effectiveness as a receiver out of the backfield.


Ivory Coast Black Rhinos Gameplan:

Primary Formation: 3 Wide "11" Personnel
- We are coming out with 3 wide receiver set, mostly single back in shotgun.

Running Game Focus- Zone blocking up front, primarily working the perimeter instead of trying to run it up the middle to avoid Snacks and Donald, using the run to help set up some play action passes.

Passing Game Focus- Using the running game to develop some play action fakes and deep shot passes. We will use a variety of crossing routes and rubs to get our receivers open. We want to limit the long developing plays, and get the ball out quickly, so the majority of our plays will have Ryan throw the ball quickly (outside of the play fakes).

X-Factor on Offense: Playaction Pass- We want to try and slow down their pass rush, and will rely on some playaction passes to take advantage of any blitzers as well as slow down their pass rush.


Defensive Formation: 4-2-5 Defense
- We will come out in a 4-2-5 set anticipating a 3 receiver set from Singapore. If they go a more traditional heavy set, we will use Bobby Okereke as our additional linebacker and send Malcolm Butler to the bench. If they want to spread it out further, Baker will come off and Brandon Carr would be the dime back.

Secondary Coverage: Cover-3 Zone and Man Mix- We'll use our outside corners to rely on the deep thirds of the field, with Earl Thomas taking the middle third. Underneath, we'll use zone coverage as well. We know Rodgers will shred us if he's only facing one style of coverage, so we'll alternate with man coverage as well, sometimes with safety help over the time and on occasion sending blitzers, but don't want to rely on that much. 

Defensive Box- We'll focus on two gapping with our interior linemen, and give Myles Garrett and Khalil Mack the go ahead to come tearing off the edges to go after Rodgers, working through any runs in their direction. David will be our primary coverage linebacker, focused on Bell out of the backfield. Devin McCourty would handle Darren Waller in coverage. We'll sprinkle some blitzes in, but largely rely on our front 4 for pass rush pressure

X-Factor on Defense: Khalil Mack- He's going to eat Aaron Rodgers alive. There's also his friend on the other edge, Myles Garrett. Rodgers will get frustrated and make stupid mistakes, and then we win.

Uh...hate to state the obvious but LeVeon Bell is also inactive this week. Considering his team is on a bye week

So with bye weeks starting this week, I feel it is a good time to remind/inform everyone (mainly @wwhickok and @rackcs but refresher for everybody) of the bye week rules.

Players who are on bye are to be treated the exact same as they were the previous week. No exceptions.

That means if your guy was inactive week 3 and on bye week 4, he's inactive again. If he came into week 3 healthy, got hurt (no matter the severity), but he's on bye week 4, he's good to go for one more week.

I'm sorry but that logic doesn't make any sense.

So if he is inactive we are supposed to pretend he isnt? Okay. I'll play this game. I think Bell would get very limited. Irl it wouldnt be the first time that he was limited by NEs defense. So, my vote remains the same.

So what happens when Dallas is on bye and you can't play your only QB?

Bye weeks would be a mess and no one would be able to field a full team

We have a bye week in BDL because this season is long and grueling and people get burned out, especially during the holiday season.

It's okay and it doesn't have to change your mind on anything. But this is the rule and you need to know it going forward

But the bye week is the same for everyone right? Not a week to week thing like I was thinking
