I love stuff like this.
With the disclaimer that while this is cool, I wish they'd get more in depth instead of dummying it down for casual fans.
Wasn't he a db for us back in the 90s? the name sounds familiar.
That was about as great a breakdown as I've seen in a long time.
Notice a few things:
- Even though they bring five guys on the blitz, the real pressure is coming from the 3 LBs through the A-gaps.
- The DEs are playing contain first in case Vick tries to escape the pocket.
- Fire zone blitz's commonly have a 3-3 coverage on the backend, but the corners are usually playing man.
- Vick's slot WR has a small open as he is getting passed on to the safety. Looks like he still can't read a blitz.
Very interesting. The Cardinals used that blitz over and over and the Eagles never seemed to have an effective counter. It's a perfect call vs. play-action.
Vick is one of the worst QBs in the league vs the blitz. Cardinals gameplan was perfect defensively to beat the Eagles.
