4/5/2007 Note: Don't mind this thread, just getting some stuff from 2005 online. First Half Kickoff: Johnson 29 yd. return from the NE 12 to the NE 41 Bethel brings it up the middle, breaks a few tackles while bursting into the 2nd layer of kick coverage before getting wrapped up by a few Bills. [FONT="] [/FONT] Offensive Series #1 Punt Contributor: Pats1 Time: 15:00 remaining in the first quarter Statistics: 3 plays, -7 yards, time of possession was 1:42 1st and 10 NE 41 Result: Run, Dillon, left tackle, -1 yd. Offense: 3 WR, Givens wide left, Brown right slot, Branch wide right, Fauria TE down off LT, Dillon lone RB. Defense: 4-3, LBs 5 yards off the line, CBs 5-10 yards off the line. Blocking: Fauria gets a nice block on a DE, pushing him inside towards the C and away from the play Ashworth gets a block on the LB on the far side of the field from the play Mankins drives a DT towards the other side of the field Hochstein struggles with a DT at first, with back bent backwards, but regains control and pushes the DT to the ground away from the run Neal pulls behind Mankinsand picks up a LB coming in, getting the LB away just in time as Corey comes up from behind Gorin is actually initially beat off the edge by the DE, but once the run is spotted, the DE comes back and tries to follow the play, where Gorinquickly stops him, although the DE eventually broke free and ran over to the tackle Givens trots in stride with Clements towards the run, where Givensinitiates the block but slightly over pursues, allowing Clements to push Givensâ back down from behind and break free. However, the linebacker that Nealcovered squirmed around a bit and forced Corey to make a spin move outside, bumping into Givensin the process and giving Clements more opportunity to break free. Clements would make the lead tackle on Dillonon the edge with both safeties and the DE who broke free from Gorinjust steps behind. Analysis: The blocking by Givens and in part Neal were the downfall of this play, with Givens overpursuing and having to turn back towards Clements quickly. Since Givens had to plant a foot to turn around, his head went down in an effort to quickly get back to Clements, and Clements was able to just push Givens a tad as Dillon made his spin move straight into Givens. Nealâs block was shaky as well on the LB, who wasnât able to tackle Dillon but did push around Neal on the ground, initiating Dillonâs spin move. With 4 uncovered tacklers coming at him, Dillon obviously had no chance to break away and let Clements take him down for the loss of 1. The Givens and Neal mishaps were difficult to describe â sorry if I confused you! 2nd and 11 NE 40 Result: Pass, SACKED, Brady by Schobel, -1 yd. Offense: 3 WR, Givens wide left, Fauria right slot, Branch wide right, Watson TE down off LT, Dillon lone RB offset right behind RT. Defense: 4-3, 2 LBs show blitz but back off just before the snap, all 3 CBs 5 yards off the line. Blocking: Ashworth slides and rides a DE outside, but a DT gets ahead of Mankins, with the DT pushingAshworthfrom the side. From there, Ashworthhas been pushed downfield and out of place, and Schobel takes the chance to wrap up a scrambling Brady from behind. Ashworthmight have had a slim chance, but that was terminated as soon as he tripped over Mankinsand the DT on the ground Mankins plays a DT inside too much off the snap and is beaten outside, where he chases the DT, who is now pushing Ashworthwho is already engaged in a block. Just as the DT is making the small push with outstretched arms, Mankinscomes from behind and levels the DT to the ground Hochstein initially slides behind Mankinsbut will quickly break off and turn back right where he is in the right place in the right time to pick up the other DT from Neal, who is trying to break free with a spin move. Hochsteinwill for the most part sustain this block ahead of Bradyâs scramble, although the DT was already heading there as containment Neal has a pretty good backside block on a DT, and controls a spin move, for the most part, before Hochsteintakes over Gorin will ride the other DE outside but Dilloncomes out and hits this DE from the side, disrupting Gorinâs block and causing Gorinto be off-balance for a moment. The DE will hit a wobbly Gorinjust once before pressuring Brady from the side and causing the scramble where Schobel quickly wraps up Brady from the other side. Coverage: Dillon comes up and hits the DE on Gorinquickly before wrapping around behind the line in a route Watson runs what looks to be a flag pattern towards the near sideline Givens runs up the near sideline Fauria and Branch donât cut inside, within 5 yards (camera view). Analysis: Mankins looked altogether too aggressive on this play, panicking when his man broke free and started to hit Ashworth, almost causing a spout of anger where Mankins just leveled the rusher. This allowed Schobel to break free, although he made a sack on an already scrambling Brady. This was due to the fact that Dillon for whatever reason, turned the corner by giving Gorinâs man a little shove, totally disrupting what was a good block by Gorin, and allowing the DE to break off and pressure Brady into the scramble. Not good line play at all, especially from a mere 4-man rush.
