LOL.  He's probably still working those poor 3rd graders to death at practice.

Also as Chip explained because of Cover 1 Defense is why you don't see a lot of 10-15 yard intermediate routes thrown to.  The FS is the key.  He's either bracketing that route or waiting to jump the pass for an INT.  Also why the OLB and FS can jump the 10 yard slant because they are "reading" that zone.  

But we must continue to make the FS work by bringing guys into his area and making him "read" the routes.  It's why improving our intermediate route running is key.  Get the one big body WR in the zone to take the FS into bracket coverage and throw the deep ball to the other WR over the top.  Double moves have also been good for us against safeties that aren't "elite".  The corner-post route by Hastings is a good example and the post-corner by NCM.  Timing is key on the post-corner so the SS can't get over for double coverage, Play action, keep eyes in the middle of the field, 3 step drop from the fake, hit the WR outside the numbers going to the boundry.  

Once we get reliable big bodied TEs they can also do the basketball rebound route.  Run to the FS and post him up or in the running back draw game knock him on his ass

@bigbird can you provide some insight on why Cover 1 is a good defense against AU's offense?  

 

I've said it before, if you can defend a post, a wr screen, a rail, and a deep out you can take away our passing game.  Granted we are expanding our tree, but cv1 allows the D to cvr those routes easily without losing any leverage on the run game. When the D is in CV 1,  it allows them to press our wr and really attack our screen game while providing help over the top during play action.

Typically you see a lot of 1 and 3 against us because it allows for an extra defender in the box.  Many times you'll see the pre-snap look as 2 or 4  and then roll the safety either as a predetermined call or based on formation and motion.  Most teams will limit 3 against us because you lose your lbs to the outside.

Sorry, @bigbird is currently busy...

These Madtv sketches are the funniest I have ever seen.  For anyone that hasn’t seen them, look up “Coach Hines” on YouTube.  

Sorry for the derail, just never see these references anymore.  To the topic, thank you for explaining this.  To anyone that has more knowledge, what type of defense does Washington prefer to employ?

I'm pretty sure they run a 4-2-5.  Coverage will depend on opponent.  I would expect Cover 1

And like I predicted in another thread don't remember which one.  Offensively the game will be our young running backs vs their young linebackers.   Throw in Ryan Davis and I think he's the difference maker.  Plus if the pass pro holds up expect to see 6-8 deep shots.

@bigbird Is that why ypu were calling for the mills concept to be used last year? I seem to remember it being discussed

Mills is a great way to attack 2 and 4 and test a Safety’s eye discipline. Mills can also be successful against 1-high looks and be run with play action to draw up a Linebacker or Safety to create a void in the middle zone...Which we seldom throw into.

I would prefer more levels and flood type concepts when going against zone coverages and more crosses, rubs, outs/ins, and digs against man teams.

We run Mill Concept routes.

The Louis TD in 2013 is a perfect example of that.  However the safety dropped deep and Marshall should have hit the dig route to Sammy.  

A difference between our pass attack and some of the Mills concept is we don’t run a ton of timing routes.  Not sure why.  

Everyone should watch some of our offense and not watch the ball.  Watch the routes.  We run a lot of intermediate stuff I think because of coverage and the abilities of the safeties across the league we stay away from the 10-15 yard middle.

The issue to me is we don't seem to exploit the coverages that are being run against us.
