Lancaster Offense:

This Singapore defense is pretty strong up front but we feel like we can have some success against their back 7 in both phases of our offense. We want to play a ball control offense to eat up clock and force Singapore into more high pressure situations. We want to stick to our bread and butter, a balanced rushing attack lead by our talented group along with some play action passing attack. We think this can be the key to our success this week. 


Our focus this week is grinding out the clock so we want to hit them with the running game early and never let up. We want the snap percentages for Gibbs, Montgomery, and Allgeier to be roughly 35, 35, and 30. While we won't be averse to hitting them with runs up the middle, we think we can have a good amount of success this week running to the outside and getting our guys in space and forcing defenders to make a play on them. Gibbs especially we expect to see a few explosive plays out of when we use him this way. On top of this, we want to get Hurts involved as a runner so that Singapore is forced to account for him. We'll have some designed QB runs with him and will give him free reign to scramble if he feels the need to. We think we can have enough success with this method to keep grinding out 4-6 yard runs, tire out the defense, and keep the chain moving, while also adding in the occasional explosive play to gain larger chunks of yardage.


We're going to continue to keep it simple in the passing game where we will start the game with a lot of quick strike passes to keep the defense honest and to get the ball out quick. As we establish the ground game, we'll move to some more play action focused passing. As we're going for a ball control offense this week, we'll still be working with quick game concepts a lot where we target the short parts of the field. But we think with the secondary we're facing, we can have success with some occasional shots to the intermediate and deep parts of the field. So we will work those in as well.

Lancaster Defense:

Singapore has a good stable of solid offensive weapons for Kirk Cousins. This week we want our goal to be forcing Cousins into high pressure situations where we can hopefully get some mistakes out of him. We are running a ball control offense to limit Singapore's time of possession and keep this game close so that Cousins has to try to make plays. We also want to apply pressure to him with our DL to keep him uncomfortable in the pocket throughout the game.


This week we'll mainly be using a lot of cover 2 looks for the defense. Out of this shell we'll be using both man and zone coverages with a roughly 40:60 ratio. The strength of our secondary is our safeties so running cover 2 gives them a chance to make plays. When we go to man, coverage responsibilities will be: Stevenson on Adams, Stephens on Smith, and Evans on Myers. Warner will cover the TE and Gay will cover the RB. Occasionally we will have one of the LBs blitz, with a safety then taking their man responsibility. We're not going to be able to shut down their weapons but we hope that if we can get pressure on Cousins, we can force errors and keep him from having time to get the ball to people.


For our defensive line, we really like the way this group has played to start the year and we feel like our rotation can get a lot of pressure against this OL, particularly on the interior. We want to collapse the middle of the pocket and force Cousins to use his legs as he's forced out. Bonus if we force him out to Watt's side where he should see success against Kaleb McGary. We think by rotating in our guys we should keep them all fresh and ready to go. We also respect the running game that Singapore brings so will be rotating in Slaton plenty, especially on obvious run situations.





Singapore Sentinels

Motivation: First quarter of the season is over and we will continue to use our momentum from last week to get another crucial BDL win at home. The Werewolves of Lancaster are wounded and we look to use a silver bullet to take them out this week and finish the job that Camden couldn’t.

Defensive Strategy

Formation:  4-3 “Under” / 2-4-5 Big Nickel

DL - Lancaster has a young OL outside of Taylor and Morse. Keanu Benton is going to line up over the Center and attack the A Gap between their C-RG, forcing a double team while applying pressure on Hurts. Grady Jarrett is our 3-tech inside against Rookie Avila on his way to the QB, collapsing the pocket and forcing errant throws.  Arik Armstead will compound the overload of the Left side against Taylor forcing him to pick his poison. Uchenna Nwosu will have the task this week against Evan Neal so we will use our bench strength and keep guys fresh to wear him down.

Arden Key and Lorenzo Carter will play key roles in keeping that pressure high.  Being able to substitute players and see minimal difference in the unit itself is something other teams wish they had. Zach Allen and D.J. Jones provide solid options to keep the big guys up front fresh as well to help in the minimal run defense needed this week against Montgomery.

LB - Greenlaw has the speed and agility to make things more difficult for Lancaster’s passing game while also being able to chase down the RB in the flat.. Ellis will be focusing as a spy on Hurts this week as he will likely be an RPO running threat.  Leonard Floyd will be on the LOS and provide an extra rusher to flush Hurts from the pocket. Bentley is our do it all backup that can fill any of the starting roles

Secondary - Cover 1 Man Hybrid

Charvarius Ward is a wonder in man coverage and allowing few big plays, he will look to take out the top Wolves WR target in Pittman Jr.. Isaiah Oliver will get the start this week against a gimpy DeVante Parker in the intermediate to long routes. Brian Branch is now slotted into the starting nickelback role and will get to test himself this week against Tyler Boyd. We think he is up to the task. Our Dime Backer this week is again Levi Wallace in to cover Skyy Moore..

Jabrill Peppers continues this week as the single High Safety. His high energy style and closing speed will keep the big plays from unfolding. Underneath, Ryan Neal will be taking on the task of covering Johnson.  He can be disruptive near the line of scrimmage, using his aggressive mindset to make plays. Edmunds provides depth if they guys need it.

Coverage Assignments:

  • ·         Michael Pittman Jr. / “Mooney” Ward - CB

  • ·         DeVante Parker / Isaiah Oliver - CB

  •          Tyler Boyd  / Brian Branch - CB/S

  • ·        Juwann Johnson / Ryan Neal - S 

  •          David Montgomery / Dre Greenlaw - LB

  •          Skyy Moore  / Levi Wallace - CB


Offensive Strategy

Scheme:  Pass (60%) vs Run (40%)

Formations:   2 TE (45%)/ 3 WR Bunch formation (30%)/ 4 WR Spread (25%)

Our primary formation will be 12 personnel this week. We want to get a mismatch over the middle and in the flat with Waller and LaPorta. Lancaster is missing a lot of their CBs and with two of their bench Safeties not getting much if any playing time so far the remain a BDL mystery. Brandon Jones has 16 snaps and got them last game because of the blowout.  We are just wanting to let Cousins control the clock and move the chains with what their defense gives him. 

OL - Tyler Smith came back at the right time and should help solidify our rock solid OL as Hernandez slides back over to RG. If Evan Brown can’t go, his handcuff Olu Olu will take his spot. Kenny Clark will get a Double Team to keep him occupied. T.J. Watt is a force of nature so we can only hope to give our Tackles help with chips by the TE’s another reason we are going 12 most of the time.  

Passing - Cousins is this team's leader now. WRs in DaVonta Smith and Davante Adams provide our QB with reliable pass catchers that can do it all over the field. We are looking to isolate them against the Lancaster CBs and let them do their job. Adams will be running a search route allowing him to adjust to the coverage, if he is not doubled then he will likely have a favorable matchup all game. DeVonta Smith will stretch the field and look for some big deep plays. Jakobi Meyers is back again this week as the primary slot WR in bunch formations. Jerry Jeudy will come in for the 4 WR spread look and look to be paired against a linebacker or lineman. 

Jonnu Smith comes in to keep our TEs fresh in 12 formations. Donald Parham will be used in the Red zone as he is a mismatch for the Werewolves.

Rushing - Lancaseter has a stout front 7 and some good DL depth.  Kyren Williams will continue to start this week as we look to change things up with some outside Zone and his speed and burst along with his pass catching ability should give Cousins an outlet in the flat. Josh Jacobs will be the short yardage back late in the game once we have tired their defense out. James Cook is back again as a 3rd down back to also help spread out that secondary by lining up in the slot.

Juwan Johnson out this week.

He played in the game but left early. I'll let people weigh that how they want.

Not the case, apologies SirA. Read a bad source of info.

This feels like a defensive struggle in the first half. Both teams matchup well with each other. I do see more scoring in the 2nd half and two key factors sway my vote.

While I’m a big believer in Gibbs, it’s hard to see him replicating that success because he hasn’t been unleashed by Detroit. If racks was going to commit to the run, he probably would’ve been better utilizing Montgomery with the added effect that his power run ways were actually reflected this week (Detroit played on Thursday)

The other big difference is Singapore’s weapons. I think Cousins eventually gets it going and Lancaster lacks the man power to handle big play WRs. A base cover 2 doesn’t quite eliminate that issue even though having a stud like Warner is a significant benefit.

27-17 Singapore
