Hungary Hippos

Offense:(50-50 Pass-Run)

Tempo: Up-tempo to keep Raleigh’s defense from subbing out.

Raleigh took some tough losses on defense this week with losing DT Michael Pierce as well as starting LBers Jayon Brown and Blake Martinez which effectively resets their LBing unit.

3WR - 50%

Golladay, DK and Thielen will rotate as boundary and slot receivers. If Raleigh goes man it will allow us to take advantage of single coverage matchups. One key area that we may look to take advantage of is the return of Chris Harris. He is coming off an injured shoulder which could impact his coverage ability and durability throughout the game. If he is put mono e mono with DK or Thielen I will hit them often. 

We will use motions with DK to get him advantageous positions to use his speed in space underneath to attack openings in zone or burn anyone that is lined up with him man-on-man. 

In this formation we will heavily use the RPO. This will allow for a play to runs up the middle with Mixon and Robinson as it will clear out a LBer at the second level; or a hit to the slot wr. This will also set up play action for deep shots if the safeties sneak in to stop the run because of Raleigh’s lack of quality LBers. 

Hock will put a chip on Von Miller before being a safety valve underneath for Dak. Occasionally we will flex Hockenson out and use him in space this will make both of those previous plays more effective as well as put a LBer out on an island. Hock will also be used in the seam to take advantage of any LB coverage.

If Zone is shown we will flood the wide-side of the field. If in man we look to use all of our plus matchups against Raleigh’s.  

2TE - 40%
In this set, we will heavily utilize the run game with Mixon and Robinson both with up the middle and hitting the outside due to the extra run blockers. With the focus on the running game, this allows our passing game to get a lot more cushion. The pass game will use play action to make some deep throws down field. We will take advantage of man coverage or defenders peaking into the backfield. Additionally we will utilize both TEs in the passing game due to the lack of quality coverage LBers, as well as use the screen game to get Robinson or Mixon out in space for a pass. We want to take advantage of these plus matchup as much as possible to gash Raleigh’s defense.

Having the TEs on the edge will additionally add more pass blockers to stuff the edge. This will allow Dak more time in the pocket on certain plays, as well as a person to chip the edge to allow him outside runs as well. 

4WR - 10%

Goodwin will come in as the 4th WR. He will primarily play an inside route. Thielen, DK and Golladay will continue to rotate on the slot. In man situations we will audible to the spread offense and look to catch one of Raleigh’s DBs on an island. Most of the plays in this formation will be out of the shotgun.

We want to attack the secondary with every type of route but we will have a couple WRs running underneath routes at all times.  We will use Robinson in this situation for draws, screens, and quick flare routes to slow down the outside pass rush.There will be crossing/rubbing action out of trips to allow for free releases and to hopefully force a DB to go around the rub action.

If there isn’t safety coverage over DK, we will take shots to him down field.


Defense:

Raleigh unfortunately lost Montgomery along with his defenders and McCaffrey isn’t ready to go. This puts the rock in the hands of Chubba Hubbard, JC McKissic, Malcolm Brown. 

This week we will be running cover 1 as our primary defense, but will show some 2-4-5 against 4 wide, 4-3 against 12 personnel and 2RB formations. 

Smith and Clark will be rotating as the deep safety to help disguise the look in the cover 1 and spur Murray into errors. 

With Raleigh’s injuries his running game takes a hit and is not as dominant as it once was. We are confident that we can contain the run this week with our defense. 

Coverage responsibilities:
Man:

Hayward - Adams

Moseley - Woods

Parker - Williams 

Oruwariye - 4WR 

Trufant - 5WR


The TE will be covered by the LBer that is shifted on his side of the field and the other LBer will cover the RB out of the backfield when in 3WR. In 2 TE, Lewis will sub in as the additional LBer to help cover the remaining TE.  

Depth: Every stoppage of the clock will have a set of DTs and DEs shuffling in to keep the line fresh.

 

Raleigh Firebirds

Offensive Gameplan
Looking at Hungary we feel we have a massive advantage in the passing game and with both CMC and Montgomery out, we are deciding to start JD McKissic and attack through the air. 

Starting Adams, Mike Williams and Robert Woods, Mark Andrews and McKissic gives us 5 very viable receiving options at all times. Our plan will be to try and get one on one matchups with their DB’s. We just don’t see anyone in the secondary capable of hanging with our 3 WR’s. With Shaq Thompson out, their best coverage LB, we think McKissic has a tremendous advantage in the passing game as well. Murray is playing at an MVP level and we think can take advantage of their defense. If Hungary tries to pay too much attention to our passing game, Murray can gash them with a scramble. We plan on getting Murray on designed rollouts and boots to make that older Hungary DL run around and make their inferior CB’s cover longer. We think this will lead to some big plays in the passing game. Their safeties are box players mostly so keeping them high to depend the past is advantage Raleigh

Chuba Hubbard will come in for a change of pace probably 40% of snaps. He’ll provide us with enough of a running game along with Murray. Our offensive line returns Jordan Mailata at RT and we’ve shifted Bozeman to LG and Morse to C. We think we’ll have an advantage against a non threatening pass rush. If Hungary goes blitz heavy quick passes will carve them up. In the end that Hungary defense can’t hang 


DEFENSE

Base 4-3. Zone blitz attacking style defense.

Run Defense:
Hungaryis going to have to outscore the Raleigh Firebirds. With Mixon hobbled and no real RB threat behind him, we think our front will easily handle the run game 

Pass Defense: 

Reinforcements are back with Ronald Darby, Chris Harris and Troy Hill all back from injury.. We won’t let Dak get comfortable in the pocket. We will be back in the 4-3 but still zone blitzing scheme which we think can overwhelm a poor offensive line and prevent him from having time to hit big plays down the field. We anticipate Hungary trying to use multiple pass catchers and spread us out. The plan would be to continue to attack that look and if they are going to pass they will have to do it quickly. we think an aggressive style will lead to sacks, mistakes or at worst long drives. Von Miller is a major advantage over both Hungary tackles. They will have to give him extra attention to slow him down and that will leave other players with good 1 on 1 matchups. 

Once again zone on the back end is our best bet, and keeping our safeties high to prevent big plays. We want to keep everything in front of us and force Hungary to stay patient with a lot of blitzes coming at him and we think that with the success of our offense will make Dak try and force some throws and create turnovers.

Other than safety, is there a single position where Hungary is better than Raleigh this season? Running back, yeah, but they're not even starting the better/healthier back.

What I don't like about Ralekgh here is their decision to start McKissic, even if for the purpose of throwing the ball. Having said that they did say they'd use Chuba to run. Now of course they'd basically be giving Hungary a tell every time. 

Dak definitely out performed the 15th ranked QB Kyler Murray this week. Having said all of that, Raleigh, to me, is the better team and more capable team in the passing game. Neither defense on the backend impresses me but Raleigh has a better front 7 imo. 

I'm going Raleigh in a close one. 17-14

Couple things I note is Pete is lol ignoring the run game which is bad while PR wants to run uptempo but then, it looks like like anyhow, rotate RB 

Regardless, the Raleigh team is just stupid hot right now. Hungary is gonna hit some big plays with their protection plan against zone blitzes that leave larger holes in the Raleigh defense though 

Shootout 

Raleigh 42-38

Two very similar teams to me here. Both have quarterbacks who are playing very well right now. Both have good receiving options. Both have meh OL and defenses. This is a close one but I'm actually going to go Hungary here. I think their superior RB options are going to allow them to be a little more balanced and get them the win.
