Another great article from Sturm, however, this is a little more disconcerting than others.
In the 5 games, their S11 has averaged 6.3, 6.3, 10.1, 5.3, and 5.2. Meanwhile, every other package combined has averaged 4.4, 4.3, 3.4, 5.6, and 2.5. That is right. 2.5 yards per play in 29 snaps against Cleveland for everything that was not S11.
It is not efficient. It is not challenging for the defense at all to defend. It invites more blitzes and more pressure on Tony Romo. It doesn't stress the safeties at all. It is not smart football. It may get your QB hurt. I would advise strongly against it, and more importantly, I am guessing any coach would think it was a really bad idea.
It is all they have right now that is working.
With the state of the running game and patch-work OL, looks like we've been forced into a very scary situation. Should we go all shotgun all the time?
Play with fire...we know how that ends up.
