Wichita Gameplan:

 

Offense: 

Today's game is all about limiting Louisiana's high-powered offense's opportunities. We will have a heavy running game with Fournette using 2 and sometimes 3TE sets to set the edge and get him running space in the open. We aim to hold onto the ball as much as possible and run down Louisiana's clock. Our big bodied receivers will also be an asset in the running game as they make for excellent run blockers versus the mismatched DBs. We will sprinkle in some play action this week as well since we have a primary focus on running the ball and we will hit our Bryant and Parker due to their size and funnel the ball to the TEs from time to time as well just to play the matchup. We will also try to get the screen game going out of the back field and catch a WR or RB in open space. 

 

Defense: 

Things of importance here, overload the right side of Brady's line as Watson has had a terrible year thus far. Keep pressure on Brady throughout the game to limit the damage he can do down field. Corners will be getting physical this week and jamming the WRs at the line to throw off Brady's timing. In four wides you will have Amerson slotting in. There isn't going to be set assignments for any receiver this week as all of them are formidable. In four wide sets Reddick will come off the field, Smith and Parker will play back to cover over top, Kuechly will guard the middle while the receivers are jammed at the line to let the pass rush hit home. Kuech has Elliott duty. It's going to be a hell of a match up. That's for sure.  With the defense spread he will try to run the ball (it'd be smart), but with the safety duo and Kuechly behind a solid run defensive line, it'll be a little bit more tough sledding than some may think. 

Lousiana Gameplan:

Offense:

On offense the focal point will be the run game to begin with. With an injured Sean Lee, we feel as though the weakened Wichita defensive front should be taken advantage of. Thus our primary line-up will feature a heavy set of 6 offensive linemen to ensure we can get the ball rolling with the run game and Elliott. This is also as we’ve isolated Vernon and Graham as the two danger men of the Wichita lineup, and keeping them away from our underperforming tackles and more importantly away from Brady in the backfield is the key to ensuring we can sustain drives.

While Brady has historically leaned on his TE, we respect Kuechly’s excellence in coverage and feel as though running with the extra OL will be a worthwhile strategy to mitigate Kuechly’s strength as he won’t be as effective if required to matchup against WRs. Indeed, we will see a few 6 OL, 4 WR sets to ensure the field is spread and give us every opportunity to take advantage of a sub-standard Wichita secondary. With that said, our WR group will operate pretty standard as per our previous games, with Nelson and Thomas operating on the outside and Baldwin & Sanders in the slot, although each moving between roles as required given the diversity and flexibility of their skillsets.


Defense:

We’ve loaded up the defensive line here because we see Wichita’s weakness lies in a presently underwhelming offensive line. While Jared Goff has no doubt improved drastically, improved protection has been a significant part of that. We feel that with a heavy defensive front featuring 5 players capable of rushing the passer, and the game’s premier run stopper we should be able to consistently win the battle at the LOS, stuff Fournette’s lanes and generate pressure on Goff forcing him into some errant throws.

In terms of coverage, we anticipate a 3 WR 1 TE setup, with the likely assignments being DRC on Dez, CHJ on Parker and Ryan on Decker/Stills. Reshad Jones will primarily be tasked with the receivers out of the backfield while Alexander will take the, presumably Benjamin Watson.

Overall there isn’t too much we’re planning on doing defensively to disrupt Wichita, it’s just play our game and let our talent shine through.

As much as I'd love to pick Wichita, Louisiana doesn't have a single hole on their roster outside of RT and the ILB position. 

Wichita stays around for the first quarter before Brady throws 4 TDs in the final 3 Qs to ice them. 35-17 Louisiana.

When Wheezy says both OTs have been under performing and Tunsil is a 53rd overall OT in the league, you may want to reconsider that one weak olinemen position.

The second funny thing is his game plan is run heavy (mine is as well)... yet you are saying Brady is going to throw 4 TDs...  there literally would be no time to run upvthat many points. I'm just kinda laughing over here. 

 

Thanks for voting Dingo.

I'm not fond of what Lousiana tried here. a 6th OL in the base formation and a run-heavy gameplan against a solid run defense when you have Brady and four good wideouts is weird. On the other end, I understand where PR is coming from on his offensive gameplan, but I don't think they run inside against that defense, and, while it's possible they may be able to run outside, especially with multiple TEs, it might become a bit predictable. 

Wichita keeps it close, and make a game out of this one against all odds. I even think Goff can answer to Brady in the 4th. But in the end, when the passing games open up a little bit and the defensive lines become tired, I think Louisiana receivers make a play or two more than Wichita's. 26-20 Jazz

both teams come out with a nice plan, I think the extra lineman will definetely help for Lukic here although I don't know why it's DRC against Dez and not Harris

 

Regardless Brady does just enough to win in the end

Louisiana 24-21
