AWESOME thread - Thank you so much for taking the time.
Last year I posited that the 9ers needed to come up with a way to pass of the read option or its effectiveness would start to fade. One of your first diagrams shows read-option and the pass option is clear with minor adjustments.
The OL blocking is excellent and sells run. The two ILB though have the FB and RB played in the gap. The TE swinging out left around OLB Matthews is the play - a toss over the low charging Matthews is right there. But it requires a minor adjustment in the play design. VD needs to leave the LOS and threaten to block the DBs up field, and then run inside drawing their focus.
(I can't get the photobucket link to work)
Obviously not a perfect design on my part - just pointing out the opportunity.
