Seoul Dragons



 3WR/1TE(85%),  2RB/2WR(15%)
West Coast passing game, set up with zone rushing attack.  
Pass (55%), Run (45%)

We welcome Ronnie Stanley back again this week, as always he will provide good protection when he’s healthy.   Dawand gets the start this week on the right side.  Buckner will be our focus this week in Pass Pro, we will always be sure to provide a solid double team on him.    We want to keep Richardson’s feet as clean as possible and encourage him to escape outside if the Greenland’s edges start pushing too far up field.    Zone concepts in the running game, we like our OL’s ability to block on the move and create cut back opportunities for our RB’s.

Passing game:
We don’t expect a ton of man this weekend from Greenland, but if they decide to come out man heavy,  we will make this a track meet on the outside.   We will push vertically at all times against heavy man coverage, and encourage Richardson to use his legs if he doesn’t find a matchup he likes.    Heavy rotation on the outside this week to keep our WR’s fresh.   Despite being 3WR/1TE a majority of the time, we will use Kelce in the slot often, while also using him in motion to try to get Greenland to show coverage early.    Kelce and Tank will work the slot this week, and we will stack them often, using them with flood concepts in the middle of the field.    Running backs will provide a chip to the outside while escaping for a late check down option.

Running game:  
Kenneth Walker and Dameon Pierce will head the backfield this week with a healthy 50/50 split.  We will stick with our zone concepts in the running game, letting our OL get on the move and let our RB’s make the correct read.    Our main focus this week will be off tackle, but we will still push to test Greenland inside early.   We think we can spring some big runs this week, while also wearing down the outside edge rushers.

In the Redzone, we will move towards a Gun 2 RB formation.   We will run some Read Options, RPO’s,  and use an option game out of this formation to really keep the Greenland defense moving horizontally.

Goal #1 -  Spread Greenland out  
Goal #2 -  Run the ball early, and push verticals against man coverage
Goal #3 -    Establish our OL early



Base: 4/2 Nickle
Subpackage:  2/3 Strong


LB:  Joe Tryon / Sam Williams
DL: Dexter Lawrence / Khalen Suanders
NT: DJ Reader / Foley Fatukasi
LB: Dayo Odeyingbo / Marcus Davenport
LB: CJ Mosley
Rover:  Daxton Hill
CB: Trent McDuffie
CB: Nate Hobbs
NB: Kenny Moore
FS: Bryan Cook
SS: Richie Grant

We will stick with our heavy zone approach this week.    We will rotate between Cover 1 Shells, cover 3, and cover 6.    In base, we look to apply pressure mainly with our Front 4, with the backers focusing on covering up the seams.   We want to get Tua on the move early, and take away the middle seams.  

In sub-package, we will look to get a little more creative.   Our LB and Edge will all play on the LOS, will Daxton moving up to a box role.   We look to get creative in our blitz package and let Mosley and Daxton get after the QB.    Cover schemes will remain similar, we look use our LB’s and Richie Grant to really jam up the middle seems, with Bryan Cook providing the deep coverage. 

Pass Rush:
We welcome Dayo to the starting lineup this week, as his play has really starting ticking upwards.  We want to really push the pocket this week and get Tua on the move.   Pretty conservative in our rush plan, we want to keep our rush lanes generated inside and let our powerful DL really push Greenland’s OL backwards.  


Run Defense:
Our DL is stout against the run, and we look to rotate heavy inside.   With Barkley out again this week, we aren’t too concerned with the Greenland rushing attack.   We will sit comfortable knowing our DL is stout against the run, and we have the LB flowing free behind them.

Goal#1:  Get Tua outide the pocket
Goal#2:  Cover up seams in the middle
Goal#3:  Push the pocket up the middle



Greenland Polar Bears

Offensive Formations: 5 wide (4WR, 1 TE) 50%, 3 WR/1RB/1TE 40%, 5 wide (5 WR) 10 %

Offensive Tempo: Slow as possible 

Designed Playcall Distribution: 50% pass, 30% run, 20% screens and quick outs

Plan: we want to spread out wide, stacked outside the numbers on both sides of the line of scrimmage.  This will allow quick passes, outs and slants coming back to the middle to work great in man coverage.  While if in zone we have the numbers on the overloaded side and can find the gaps.  Plenty of motion and quick out passes will complement the running game.

Slow mesh run style this week with Akers.  We also want to run Watson in more end arounds, WR screens, and touch passes 

First series of the game: we want to establish the pass and the middle of the field 


Defense Base Formation: 3-4 zone run blitz

Run Defense:  We feel that this game couldultimately be decided by how well they can run the ball.  We will be loading the box heavy on run downs.  We want our lineman to push upfield as much as possible to disrupt plays in the backfield and trust our LB core to clean up things at the line of scrimmage.  We will be slanting heavily into the strong side and trying to shoot the gaps when we do and get up field to blow plays up in the back field.

Pass defense: we want to blanket the field by using a heavy amount of zone blitzing.  We will switch into various zone coverages out of our 3-4 base to try and keep the pressure on whoever they run at QB and make him 1) uncomfortable in the pocket and 2) not know who is blitzing or where and what type of zone we are running. We feel that his brain will be more focused on not getting popped that he will miss identify zone schemes and we can get some turnovers.  This will also take away the deep ball and big plays from his stars and force things underneath and right into the teeth of our zone 

Within our zone looks we want to bring a decent amount of blitzes from all over the field and to keep their QB uncomfortable in the pocket 

Defensive rotation and formations notes:  we have DT, edge, LB, and DB depth to rotate in and keep everyone well rested.  Walker will be all over the field trying to cause havoc and look to utilize his big play abilities in the backfield.  As for formations, even though our base and dominant formation will be 3-4 we do want to sprinkle in some 4-3 and Nickle formations when possible on more clear passing downs

Nate Hobbs also out this week, so I assume Adoree Jackson in for him on Seoul?

There are some really, really good pieces on Seoul but they're not quite there yet and some of them are fighting through injuries. I like the Polar Bears to continue rebounding from a tough start to the season.

No Bosa hurts the rotation and plans to get Walker all over the field. Also Greenland really has no RB if the just have Akers atm. I don't think their plan is sound enough to go against Seoul who have a ver good plan to account for this.
