    Football_For_Dummies Hey Hos they have one on the Slant too ;)

    Figure 1: In the draw play, the QB drops back to pass and then hands off to the running back (RB), who's pretending to pass-block.

    95?

    Now I am even more confused. :rolleyes:

    All these years I've been considering a delay as a pass to a running back in which the tail fakes the D into thinking he is going to help out in pass protection, but instead he releases into a receiving pattern, and a draw as a run play that draws linemen into thinking pass.

    That's what my dad taught me anyway. And he played semi pro tail.

    Now I find out we were both wrong..... :bang2:

    But of those two plays as I described them, regardless of the nomenclature, (I will accept anyone's differing definitions) which one was Tony best at?

    Because I don't wanna go another sleepless night. :D

    Both. Anyone who didn't have the opportunity to see him run really missed out on something. He was amazing after he got his hands on the ball.

    Tio SAID

    It was one of those you send it things. HH saw it too (well, he saw one of them, not sure if its the same one...shoulda saved it.) and he was a merriman fan prior. Ware is a risk but just about every player in this draft save 4-5 are, in any other draft guys like ware and merriman would hope to go late 1st.

    Yeah, but do they have the passing tree?

    I had to break that out before. I actually felt bad for the guy who got whooped with it.

    I think I said that, wish you woould provide a link.

    I stand by everything I said as well. Ware would be a late first rounder in say, 2003's draft.

    Either of you ever see the great TD play in person? Not talking preseason..... Date - where and impressions?

    LTN - how many games did you see in person at Foxborough past 20 years?

    He was a threat to go all the way at anytime. We ran beautiful screens back in that day and Tony really scared the opposing D with his speed. He was a RB with true 'vision' that is why they called him "Hawkeye".

    Would someone please tell Nors that if I had seen Tony D play in person, I wouldn't be asking the board these questions about him.

    Yes, some of us can admit when there is something we don't know.

    Doesn't really matter. Nors has watched his favorite team (the pats) live many times in the last several years. He is constanly prattling on about it.

    However, he can't say anything more to the 3-4 other that it "attacks and confuses" and its "not a WUSSY 4-3 cover 2". Press him on it and the best he can do is pull out BP press conference references about it.

    Then he has the nerve to mock people that go to games live....yet uses it as a rationale for any argument he wants to make. D'oh!
