2 consecutive losses, no one is giving us a chance today. We are playing freely and know we will need our A game to remain competitive this week.



We are beat down at WR this week but Justin Jefferson remains our focal point throughout the game. We are going to emphasize motioning and likely doing so on every play. The concepts will alternate by targets. On shorter downs, Tim Patrick will begin on the opposite side but motion to Jefferson and create a pick that can get the ball to Jefferson in the 5-10  target range. These are going to be frequent targets up to 12-15 times. We are not going to deny this and until there is a proper adjustment that features two people always on Jefferson, we are going to give our best player the ball to win. Tim Patrick has been one of the most improved and consistent receivers this season so we don’t mind giving him a permanent target share. He’ll get 8-11 targets as we think teams will not give him the credit he’s done to this point so far in the season.

We are more driven to the quick passing game but will definitely incorporate a fair share of the RB. Jamaal Williams will get at most 20 touches as we want him involved as a runner and receiver. The strength of this defense begins with the DTs and moving run plays to the edges is our best bet for success. Expect some screens or check down routes that reinforce the 3 seconds or less passing scheme that needs to be utilized for any success. 

We are playing musical chairs on the OL but still have some capable players on the field this week. Doubling Aaron Donald is a must, we’ll utilize some motions where Donald gets chipped by the TE before getting double teamed. Former Smuggler Fletcher Cox will cause some issues in the trenches but the screens will be intended to block Donald while leaving Cox in the open field.

Lastly, the supplementary targets go to Mo Alie Cox, Rondale Moore, and the RB. Moore would be the recepient of deep targets which only come on Play action. Cox is the preferred redzone option while the RB is targeted on screens (2-3 times) or check downs in pass pro sets (4-6 times).



Tom Brady has obviously seen it all so we do not intend on trying to confuse him on coverage. Nonetheless we are going to play him straight up and use more man coverage then we have all season. We will not utilize shadowing until the 4th quarter and those assignments would be Griffin-Allen, Callahan-Lockett, Moore-3rd WR or Waller. We think our pass rush is due for a big performance and sacking Brady is not the indication of success. Forcing him to throw the ball a bit earlier, tipping passes at the LOS, and getting takeaways are the reliable indicators of our gameplan success. As Brady is the traditional pocket passer as any we comfortable moving keeping our safeties deep and forcing the opposing offense to get down the field on 10-15 play drives rather then big plays.

Derwin James will have JOAT role today and will move at all levels of the defense. On base downs, James is the last line of defense and helps overtop of Kenny Moore covering Darren Waller. We will split that responsibility across multiple players so Brady never has a specific identity of who’s covering him. James will be involved in almost all coverage schemes as in single coverage, Waller will definitely draw James. If he lines up inline TE, the edge will jam him before rushing the passer. In the slot, Kenny Moore will cover him underneath and attempt to press him before allowing James to help if there’s too much trouble in that scheme. The important thing about moving James to the LB position (we are intent about doing this!), Kareem Jackson will play as the last line to alternate with Mathieu and give more responsibility against Waller. 

There are multiple weapons for this offense so Keenan Allen will also pose troubles for us. We are comfortable playing man coverage as on the boundary Callahan or Griffin give us opportunities to win reps, which is critical in this game. Tyrann Mathieu will alternate deep responsibility on Moore but due to the low DoT for Allen, we are comfortable allowing Mathieu more leeway to roam around the field and help if/when Brady utilizes Lockett or the #3 on deep patterns. There are some shifty guys in Shenault that can threaten our defense with short passes so if they are keen on short motions and utilizes those concepts to get open, we will eventually switch to our usual zone coverages.

Lastly, Kareem Hunt is the biggest threat from the backfield. CEH has certainly upgraded his performance this season but in our base with two LBs, the defense is more run oriented again Hunt and pass based with CEH. It’s pretty simple as we are comfortable dealing with CEH runs. 






Singapore Sentinels

Motivation - Bounce back after the first loss of the season. Get a win for our final game of the homestand and beat our former QB in Carr.

Offensive Strategy
Formations:  3 WR (45%)/ 2 RB (35%)/ 2 TE (20%)

Our primary formation heading into the game will contain a single back, three receivers, and a tight end. Our secondary formation will be  21 personnel with Gaskins and CEH getting a little action. 

Scheme:  Pass (50%) vs Run (50%)

Brady will have his trio of receivers to start the game - Keenan Allen, Kendrick Bourne and Tyler Lockett. Bourne continues to start this week over Mooney but both Mooney and Shenault get more in the mix. We are going to line up Darren Waller all over the field. This is going to allow our other receivers open space in the middle on crossing routes and slants. Brady will use his processing speed to dissect the Smuggler secondary. 

Hunt will get the start because he is our best RB in all honesty. Hunt and CEH will get the majority of the carries this week with Gaskins spelling them. We will use outside zone runs to stretch the Cuba DL out and set up the pass for Brady with some play action. 

Defensive Strategy
Formations:  4-2-5 Nickel / 4-3 Under 

We have familiarity with Derek Carr and the front 7 to stop Cook if he plays.

Run Defense
Aaron Donald and Fletcher Cox are salivating at the prospect of taking on a patchwork OL that Cuba is forced to start.. We are going to control the line and keep Cook bottled up. We have the LBs needed to fill the gaps and limit their ability to get first downs. Christian Kirksey will be a spy on the RB in both the run game and pass to limit their impact. 

JOK will be the third LB.in base packages this week. He is coming along nicely so far and has earned his BDL stripes.

Pass Rush 
Reddick takes back his familiar role across from Danielle Hunter to bring pressure from our front four for most of the game. The rotation off the bench of Oweh and Ingram will make sure that our guys stay primed all day to keep that pressure on.  This should force Carr into some errant throws into max coverage and not give his receivers time to develop their routes.

Stopping Donald, Cox, Hunter and Reddick will be a task this week for Cuba.

Pass Defense
Formation - Cover 3 Zone/Cover 1 Man Hybrid

We will continue to use our Cover 3 Hybrid coverage designed to limit big plays to Cuba’s receivers. At the snap of the ball, both cornerbacks bail vertically while maintaining tight outside leverage on the wide receivers. With vision set inside on both the quarterback and the receivers, our corners can maintain proper depth, which allows them to play a combination of multiple routes within their zone responsibilities.

From this same pre-snap position, both cornerbacks can easily deploy the top-down man-coverage technique that is designed to look identical to their Cover 3 zone concept. The similar appearance of both man and zone alignments are designed to confuse Carr.

Kyle Fuller, Bryce Hall and Jordan Poyer will be responsible for the deep-third zones with Poyer having the deep middle. Underneath, Jonathan Jones will cover the slot. John Johnson and Deion Jones will cover their gaps on run plays to limit the Smuggler rushing attack. Jones will cover Cox on his routes and if they go 2 TE, Johnson will take the 2nd TE when not covering the flat. 

As stated, Christian Kirksey will be a Spy on the RB for routes in the flat and screens. Adrian Phillips is our Dime S this week.

Coverage Assignments:
·         Justin Jefferson / Kyle Fuller - CB 
·         Tim Patrick / Bryce Hall - CB
          Slot WR  / Jonathan Jones - CB
·         Mo Alie-Cox / Deion Jones - LB
         RB  / Christian Kirksey - LB

If think Cuba can get some success against a couple struggling corners in Singapore but not enough consistently to make up for some of their ouchies the team has gone through.  The mini Moore strategy on Waller, is, something, but doesn't look like it'd play out that way often, love to see it though.  Regardless I think the sing offense moves it a bit more consitently.  

Sing 27-17

Odafe Oweh

Baltimore Ravens · OLB

As a rookie edge rusher, Oweh is already well beyond what most figured to see from him in 2021, even taking into account the higher expectations that come with being a first-round pick. Oweh made a key play in a frantic comeback win over the Chiefs in Week 2, forcing Clyde Edwards-Helaire to fumble with the game on the line. He did it again in Monday's win over the Colts, forcing Carson Wentz to fumble via strip-sack, giving the ball back to Baltimore and taking away a red-zone opportunity from Indianapolis. Oweh is tied with Cardinals edge rusher Chandler Jones for the most turnovers caused by pressure this season with three, and he's currently tied with Joey Bosa in total quarterback pressures with 18. Oweh is just as effective against the run, tying with a handful of defenders (including Aaron Donald) for the fourth-most run stuffs with six. His arrival has bolstered Baltimore's defense up front, making the Ravens a difficult matchup for any team.
