Here's how Roman setup Gore's big run in the 4th quarter:
This is in the 3rd quarter, 3rd and 1. We bring in our "jumbo" package with Snyder as the 2nd TE, we motion Boldin across the formation.
As Boldin runs by, he taps Davis who then shifts across the formation as well.
We run a QB sneak for a first down.
In the 4th quarter it's another 3rd and 1. We again come out in a "jumbo" package with Snyder as the 2nd TE, and again we motion Boldin across the formation.
As he runs by he again taps VD who then motions across the formation(look familiar?)
Instead of a QB sneak, we run "97 power". We're going to collapse the line down at the "7" hole and pull Boone around with Dixon getting a kickout block on the LOS. Because we had run the QB sneak earlier out if this exact same situation, formation and shift, Carolina anticipates QB sneak and the DT's collapse in. This gives our guys(mainly Staley and Goodwin) great angles for their blocks.
You see how aggressively Carolina looks for the sneak as the LB's and DL all crash the middle.
The crash allows Iupati to get off his block and get to the 2nd level on Keuchly, Dixon and Boone go for their blocks.
You see how all the D-lineman are out of the play in a big ball in the middle. Iupati holds his block on Keuchly and Boone and Dixon get good kickout blocks. This opens up a big lane for Frank.
Frank ends up 1-1 with the backup safety and the rest you know. This was awesome to see Roman set this play up by running complimenting plays out of the same formation, shifts, motions personnel packages and situations. Great call and execution.
