Posted this concept earlier this week and a lot of the internet experts here poo-pooed it. Now we see New England do exactly what I said, right in the first quarter.
Wes Welker just targeted and knocked Aqib Talib out of the game with vicious cross shot to the ribs.
Niners should target Seattle secondary for vicious blocks and hits within the context of the called plays -- on screens, sweeps and crossing routes, DRILL their corners with blocks.
We should have our pulling lineman, tight ends and big receivers look to bury Seattle secondary's into the ground.
As a a former lower level player, I know that putting hats on skill players changes the game. How is Talib contributing on the sideline, out of the game?
Put a few big, legal shots on Sherman and crew, and they coverage will loosen up.
