FaithInIrish Forever 2,763 Posted December 25, 2022 Share Posted December 25, 2022 The offense has a nice discussion going, let's talk defense. Disclaimer: Defense will also be situational but the base formation gets installed in spring practice and fall camp first. 3 DOWN: COSTS: LIGHTER VS THE RUN PASS RUSH COMES FROM ACTIVATING LINEBACKERS AND SECONDARY BENEFITS FREEMAN HAS RECRUITED WELL AT LINEBACKER. Is Sneed better than the Vyper candidates? SIMILIAR CONVERSATION WE HAD ON OFFENSE ON WHICH PLAYER IS BETTER THE 3RD RECEIVER OR THE SECOND TIGHT END DEFENDS THE SPREAD OFFENSE EASIER. LINEBACKERS AND SAFETIES "SPY" MOBILE QBS BETTER. 4 DOWN: COSTS LESS SPEED- SNEED WILL OUTRUN THE VYPER HOW DEEP IS ND AT DE? IF ND GETS A VYPER AS A TRANSFER IT CHANGES. SIMILIAR IF WE SEE VYPERS GETTING HOME IN THE BOWL GAME. LOSING KEELEY HURTS HERE. BENEFITS MORE POWER- BOTELHO AND JR WEIGH MORE AND THUS LIKELY SET A RUN EDGE BETTER THAN SNEED. CONTINUITY- IRISH RAN MUCH MORE 4-2-5 WITH GOLDEN. I THINK FORMATIONS ARE ALWAYS DICTATED BY WHO YOUR BEST PLAYERS ARE. SO I'M JUST PRESENTING A FRAMEWORK WHERE A LINEBACKER MIGHT BE BETTER THAN THE 4TH DEFENSIVE LINEMAN. THOUGHTS? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
