Cancun Kaiju


Against a weak defensive front and smaller linebackers, we’re going with a ground and pound attitude on offense again. We will be doubling up on Jonathan Allen as much as possible to wear him down and take him out of the game, while we have an Earth, Wind, and Fire approach in the backfield with Patterson bringing speed on the edge, Hyde power up the middle, and Mattison spelling both. We will run towards Sutton’s side of the field as much as possible, using his size advantage against the cornerback to our advantage to spring the running back for big gains outside.

In the passing game, we are giving our left tackle extra help in the form of the tight end, running back, or fullback. We want to work Elijah Moore across the intermediate part of the field and on crossing routes, while Sutton will be more of a sideline weapon where he can use his size to bully and box out the DB. Patterson and Mattison will be targeted a lot in the passing game as well on screens and wheel routes out of the backfield.


Okay, well, we don’t have corners this week so we’re going with a full blown Cover-3 scheme to protect ourselves against a pretty nasty group of receivers. We are going to utilize zone blitzing to get pressure on Dak Prescott, particularly off the edges where we feel the offensive tackles are pretty weak and forcing Prescott to step up into the pocket instead of bailing to extend the play. When he does, Larry Ogunjobi and Akiem Hicks will be waiting to take him down.

When we do have to bring on another defensive back, we’ll be going to the safeties and maintaining zone coverage as much as possible. When we do go to man coverage, we’ll make sure Quandre Diggs is on the slot receiver with linebackers handling the tight end and running back.


Hungary Hippos

3WR - 60% - Out of this set we will be spreading out the ball to our litany of receiving threats. Cancun’s LBers are very much lacking quality, so we will be utilizing Mixon and Hockenson a lot in the passing game this week. They will be utilized mainly in the mid to shallow areas of the field. While Cancun boasts a solid CB core, I also boast one of the best trio of WRs in the league with DK, Lockett and Thielen. We will look for single coverage WRs for most of the game. Additionally, we will be running some deep patterns and letting the receivers out run the secondary. 

Out of this formation we will also be fairly balanced in the running game. Mixon will be the workhorse this week (Robinson will be used sparingly if he’s active) We look to keep Mahomes on the sidelines for much of the game. 

Hock will sporadically be flexed out to take advantage of the coverage assignment. 

4WR - 20% - Slayton comes on and we start testing Cancun’s depth at CB with Michael Davis being out this week. Someone will have single coverage and this will be taken care of. Dak will be playing out of the shotgun to give him more time to find his receiver. The RB will be utilized in screens and dumpoffs in this formation. Looks for Floods and trips to one side of the field as well during this formation to cause confusion in the secondary. 

2 TE - 20% - Because of the weakness at LB, we look to take further advantage by utlizing the 2 TE set. We will look for single coverage on a linebacker. We will also be using Mixon as an additional target. One of these three will get open. Near the goal line we will deploy this look more often. The 2TE look will also help us with some power running as well to continue keeping Mahomes off the field. 




Hayward - Sutton

Moseley - Moore?

Bouye - 3WR

Parker - 4WR

If they’re starting 3 wide receivers, Deion Jones and Shaq Thompson will play sides of the field with the RB/TE coverage. If the RB/TE stays in to block, they can blitz. If they come out in 4 WR sets, Jones will come off the field for Parker who will cover the 4th WR and Thompson will cover the RB/TE. In 3 WR sets, Wingard will be playing a deep zone. In those sets, Chuck Clark will be playing in a shallow zone in the middle of the field. In 4 WR the safeties will split the field taking away the deep option. In 2 TE/2 RB formations, Wilson will come on as an additional LBer and will cover the additional TE/RB. 

Harris and Ogbah will take turns facing the replacement level LT. Griffen will be a heavily utilized rotator for both DE as a situational pass rusher. For blitzing purposes we will stick with our four man blitz, with Thomas coming in for Watts occasionally for extra blitz pressure.Seldomly we will have a LBer blitz off the left side as well to put more pressure on Mahomes. 

Run Defense: We will look to maintain gap control. Cancun has Patterson as a running threat which we respect. We will play disciplined and prepare for a potential play action look.

Cancun’s LBers are very much lacking quality

Going into today, our outside linebackers were giving up around 5 yards per target and our middle linebacker is allowing an opposing QB rating of 63.1. Our linebackers are playing really well, y'all just don't know who they are because they haven't made an All-Pro team or whatever.

I’m super tempted to take the upset here. I actually watched the Cowboys on Sunday and Dak was a big on field reason they scored 0 points until garbage time. He has great weapons IRL so I see White at least holding his own in cover 3 looks. I’m shocked I’m doing this but I think the biggest difference is Cordarrelle Patterson and his ability to win as a WR and RB. Second upset of the week.

2 CBs against 3 good WRs with Dak (even if he did play terribly this week) is not a recipe for success. I honestly have no idea who Andrew Wingard is and despite being pretty one dimensional, I think Cancun has some things going for it with Patterson in the backfield and Sutton at WR. But overall Hungary is just the better team right now and with a fighting shot at the playoffs, put forth that extra effort to seal it.
