January 5, 2017

Chris Brown of Smart Football talks about the evolution of the power read (which Michigan ran with Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner), as well as a new wrinkle that Alabama and Clemson are using (LINK).

Hit the jump for some beautiful ladies.

    Found this article an interesting study as I enjoy an indepth analysis regarding the Evolution of Anything………

    As the author wrote, the never ending cat & mouse game: the 11 players on Offense trying to overcome their numericaly inferior disadvantage over the 13 tacklers on Defense. The quarterback, By handing the ball off and then running away from the play allows for the ball carrier, with only 9 blockers, needing to avoid 13 Tacklers.

    By leaving a couple defenders high & dry if you will & the Quarterback keeping the ball and going off tackle he can more readily avoid the 2 sideline tacklers; putting the offense at great advantage with 10 blockers on 9 tacklers when the ball carrier arrives at the line of scrimmage……….

    Great read;

    Good stuff, as always from Chris Brown.

    The shovel pass option thing is pretty ingenious.

    Looks like Narduzzi is pretty good at hiring. Won’t be too long.
