Originally posted by Giedi:The LB heads up on Vance was expecting a down block from vance and was bracing for it, and vance released to the outside and was gone by the time the LB realized it was a pass. He missed his opportunity to jam vance at the LOS because of the excellently executed play fake.Originally posted by WRATHman44:Originally posted by Giedi:Thl408, the Vance 20+ yard catch play, those redskin linebackers really bit on the play fake.
The three LB's (one is actually the SS, IIRC) actually got to their drops pretty quickly. The only one who was slow was actually dropping to the side away from Vance. Kerrigan got toasted by Vance, but he lined head up on him and had him as an assignment the whole way, he just completely failed on his re-route. This Play did a good job of attacking a poorly executed Cover 3 from a Man-1 pre-snap read, IMO.
I've never heard of a LB that's lined head-up on a TE getting coached NOT to jam him on a run play. Giving him a free release to the 2nd level is disastrous to the run scheme. I think he'd have been screwed up, regardless of run/pass. That was my point... that and the fact that Kerrigan has no place running downfield with an athletic TE, lol.
