Maybe everyone can shut up about Bridget, Gabriel and the feud and read this article on the fullback dive... you know, something about football: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/writers/dr_z/12/14/fullback.dive/1.html That's the link to the second page of 2. Here's the part the concerns the Pats specifically: Z has a pretty good memory for a geezer but I'm not quite sure this play was really that much on hiatus - Howard Griffith, Terrell Davis's fullback, often got to run dives for the good Denver teams of the late 90's. Not mentioned in the article is Justin Griffith (what is it with fullbacks named Griffith?) who is a pretty quick fullback for Atlanta. Very good hands out of the backfield as well. I think Evans demonstrated last year that he's pretty much a running back trapped in a fullback's body. In light of Heath's 4.6 ypc, despite his long run of 35, and at least another 8 yard dive I can remember recently, what does that say about the run blocking of our interior line? Each of those guys reportedly is perfect to run that quick dive - Mankins, Koppen, and Neal are supposed to be pullers, chippers, guys who can get out on linebackers and lead screens downfield - so why have we been chugging at 2 yards a carry most of the time? Exclusive usage on third and short?
