    We have a newbie ZOFFIE who asked for a thread to be started....here it is

    Can some one start a new thread for me, I only have 17 posts so I can't start a new thread.

    So I think it would be interesting to have the forum build a roster by positions first then adding the players to the designated positions.

    so it would start with what formations they run and what position/type of player they need , then you would have the number of positions needed, from there you can add how many rotational/backups you need for each position (i.e 1 rotational player for ILB for 3-4 set). Once we have the number of positions/roles we can add players to the roles (and any extra room on the roster).

    So I need help doing this because I'm relatively new to football and I thought it could be an interesting way to make a roster in the slow period.

    so it could look something like:
    Defense:

    3-4:
    2 DE (2-Gap)
    1 NT (2-gap)
    2 edge setting/pass rushing OLB's (or OLB/DE hybrids)
    1 WILB (faster, sideline to sideline player)
    1 SILB (thumper)
    2 CB
    2 S

    Etc

    Thanks Andy,

    If people could list formations that the pats run on defense and offense (and special teams if you like) and the roles of each positions that would be great.

    Once we have a few I'll start compiling the position roster.

    For example:

    Offense:
    "Posse" 311 (3 WR -1 RB -1 TE)

    1 of each QB, LT, LG, C, RG, RT
    2 Outside WR (deep-medium route running)
    1 Slot WR (underneath routes, "shifty")
    1 RB

    I think that covers 2008. The 2009 version would include 5 variations of the delayed draw to Kevin Faulk.

    I wish I could find that great image one of the PatsFans posters did of the Bill O'Brien play-calling flowchart that covered this quite well.
