I saw more stretch runs to the edge than ever in the game plan, but most of the blocking schemes appear to be man blocking rather than zone. It is preseason and the play selection is most likely not indicative of what we will see come the start of the regular season.
That jives with what I've been seeing, Golitta.
Without the benefit of watching replays, I haven't noticed a big increase in the tell tale cut blocks of a zone scheme. Again, I've only watched the preseason games in realtime, so there's every chance that I'm way off base.
I think you're absolutely right, regarding the stretch runs. The left side is getting a good jump and making the space needed for the pull to get where it needs to go, and subsequently our backs have been able to turn the left corner quite consistently. But that's not entirely new. By mid-season last year, Coffee was regularly turning the left corner for useful yardage.
