They've clearly had success with it 4-2-5 or whatever. Maybe they want to go with Guy/Pennell/Bennett-High/Collins/Bentley/KVN more up front as they are their best players...who knows.
I’d rather see them in the Amoeba Defense as the base look...
I didn’t think it was situation specific. Goal is to totally confuse the blockers so don’t see why running game would be immune from that.
But run blockers have assignments and a lot is based on positioning, so they too would be vulnerable to confusion and shooting out where nobody is there.You are right - the goal of the "Amoeba" is to confuse the blockers AND the QB since they have no idea who is rushing. It would be vulnerable to the run because literally no one is in a stance so offensive linemen would have leverage to move the defensive linemen and linebackers. Run blockers shoot out at their opponents while pass blockers retreat.
Run the ball. Just like bowling.But run blockers have assignments and a lot is based on positioning, so they too would be vulnerable to confusion and shooting out where nobody is there.
This discussion raises an interesting question about how should an offense best attack the Amoeba?
