Beating the blitz of ASU


Recommended Posts

Saw at stat that ASU blitzes 3rd most among all Power 5 teams, bringing 5+ defenders on 55% of passes.

 

Will be a good test for Golson, saw a similar style vs. Syracuse. How he handles is and the ability to make them pay for it will be a deciding factor in the game.

Honestly, I think its a good thing if a team consistently blitzes. Should be relatively easy to exploit that with TB screens, bubble screens, quick slants, etc. Golson just needs to make quick decisions and be able to identify where the blitz is coming from pre-snap.

Our slots and Robinson with quick throws can have a very good day if Everett can get it out quick enough. Was reading an ASU blog and they like to bring a safety which could really open things up in the secondary. Three step drops, slip screens to the RB's...Kelly can have a field day if our center and QB make the right reads. Guessing it will be a high scoring affair and feeling more confident about an Irish win...GO IRISH!!

Agree with everything above. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple of those nifty shovel passes, too. If we beat their blitzes with little dump plays like that and the screens, they'll have to adjust at the half...just in time for some Folston runs and Fuller bombs.

If it does happen, I hope he is decisive quickly and does something other than dancing back and forth (cha-cha-cha) run from sideline to sideline, and then take a big hit. Get rid of the ball and don't dance in the pocket. If you break from it, keep your eyes down field and throw it or run North and South.

EDIT: SDIrishFan is correct. My reading comprehension was lacking as I read this.

I was curious, so I read the LA Times article about the UCLA-ASU game. The writer says, "On a side note, Arizona State is one of the worst tackling teams I've ever seen. They go for the big hits with no intention of wrapping up, which has obviously helped some of these big plays get going for the Bruins."

 

Perhaps they are tackling better, but any team that gives up 62 points is suspect. The better tackle well in open space, because our receivers will make them pay if they don't.

does cam actually play more because of pass protection?

 

kinda of hard to pull folston as he has been pretty solid last two games.

 

Unless Folston has made more progress on his pass protection than I realize don't be surprised to see Cam more on passing downs. Good thought PT. One of the many stories to follow on Saturday.

Will Fuller tunnel screen anyone?

 

Agreed!! I would love to see some more RB screens. However, I do not worry about our offense in this game. I think we can put 30 on them no problem. I just want is to hold them less than 10. I know that sounds crazy but a 21+ point win would do very big things for us.

 

Whatever fashion necessary, ND needs to make this game one sided. With our only loss against FSU the way it was and out biggest win against a team the committee gave more respect to, we have our future in hand. I can't imaging the committee not going all in on ND if we blow out ASU. They just need that 1 game to justify us being in. (Assuming we win out of course) Even the media is talking about our "money" aspect of getting in.
