New Orleans Gameplan:


Running game

This week we’ll be mixing it up in the run game and using Derrick Henry and Raheem Mostert as a lightning and thunder 1-2 punch. Henry will take shorter yardage and goal line carries along with a healthy number of standard carries, while Mostert will take the bulk of the passing game reps as well as 5-10 carries too, with the hope of using his speed to stretch the defense further and turn some bigger plays up field.

Passing game

Seoul’s a solid team defensively but leaves a bit to be desired in the pass-rushing department and with Joe Tryon traded out, are a bit shorter on depth when it comes to edge rushers. So our plan is to really focus on the passing game, let Allen sit in the pocket and pick apart the zone that Seoul likes to run. Guys like Samuel, Moore and Hopkins all excel at finding soft spots in the zone and with their elite YAC ability, we can see Deebo and DJ in particular making Seoul pay. 

Whether Seoul goes man or zone, Allen will be given a license to escape the pocket and run or look to make plays down field with his arm. If in man, we’ll just turn our receivers up field and given Allen the space to run while in zone, we’re confident our guys will eventually find the spot. 

Schultz will function as Allen’s safety valve, while we’ll also look to mix things up with a few RB screens to Henry to get him away from Lawrence and Reader who may clog up the middle. To help bring along their development, Rice and Wilson will start to get snaps once we’ve established a lead. 


4 Man Pressure:

Like last week, our focus is going to be generating 4 man pressure. With our defensive line being as good as they come, our plan we'll continue to use 4 rushers for the majority of the time to stop Seoul's passing game featuring Derek Carr being not quite 100% at QB. We'll rotate heavily as usual ensuring our key guys in Bosa, Wilkins and Simmons are able to play the key downs and no more than 75% of the snaps in the game. We'll also look to use Smith kicked inside at DT on passing downs with Tuipulotu coming in and being used as a chess piece lined up either at edge, or outside Bosa and given licence to rush straight at the passer. 

Take away Travis Kelce: 

We’re very comfortable with how our secondary matches up against Seoul's receiving group, however Kelce is one of the premier TEs in the league and represents both a threat when it comes to moving the chains and making plays downfield on crucial downs. So our focus will be on slowing him down by having Davis take him in primary coverage and a safety shadowing him. By taking Kelce away and trusting Bradberry on Pickens along with Gilmore on Cooks, we feel we can keep things manageable.


In terms of coverage, it will be the usual cover 1 for New Orleans, with some press man concepts nearer the line of scrimmage. 

George Pickens - James Bradberry
Brandin Cooks - Stephon Gilmore
Zay Jones - Mike Hilton
Travis Kelce - DeMario Davis + shadowed by safety (either Amos or Mathieu, depending on who is closer to Andrews)
RB - Anthony Walker Jr.

The non-shadowing safety on Kelce for the given play will be the deeper safety while Shaq Griffin or Cam Taylor Britt will come in as CB4 or CB5 if Seoul wants to go with 4 or more wide, while the cover 1 base will stay where appropriate. 






 3WR/1TE(70%),  2RB/2WR(30%)
West Coast passing game, set up with zone rushing attack.  
Pass (55%), Run (45%) 


Zone concepts in the running game to get out OL on the move.   Simmons will be our concentration on the interior this week.   We want to keep in the inside pocket clean this week for Carr this week.   

Passing game:
Kelce will look to operate from the slot this week, and will keep him using him motion presnap. We will look to move Pickens around this week and let him work from the slot also.   We will use flood concepts often this week and let Carr make the correct reads.   As always, we will look to use our running backs more in the passing game, than keeping them in for protection.  
Running game:  
Zone rushing concepts,  we want to make sure we stick to the running game.  Each back will get 10-15 touches this game.   We feel Dameon and Javonte’s toughrunning styles will wear down the New Orleans front 7 and help break some long gains.  


Goal #1 -   Stick to the running game
Goal #2 -   Test New Orleans on the perimeter
Goal #3 -    Get our RB’s one on one opportunities with New Orleans 2nd level


Base: 4-2 Nickel

Heavy zone concepts this week,   we want to force Allen into making throws into the correct windows.   Rotation between Cover 2, 3, and 6.   


Pass Rush:
We will rely on the front 4 for pressure this week.   We want to keep the rush lanes disciplined to keep Allen from escaping in the middle.  


Run Defense:

Disciplined rush lanes, let our stack LB flow freely behind our DL.


Goal#1:  Keep Allen inside pocket
Goal#2:  Keep discipline rush lanes
Goal#3:  Zone coverages throughout game

Braden Smith and Deebo out for NO.

I do like Seoul interior DL vs NO interior OL allows them to get some pressure, but not enough for a zone D, especially against a mobile QB. NOLA 31-17

Deebo did play but got injured fwiw.

Connor McGovern ascendancy!

Seoul's starting DL has 2.5 sacks this year. Total. Combined. And I don't fault Seoul for starting them. I can't see this team getting enough pressure on Allen to make a difference.

Allen is going to have way too much time.  NOLA gets it.
