No I'm not going to extoll the virtues of Tony Romo, or give excuses for the collapse against the Lions. More than enough edotitorial time has been used this past week to justify, crucify, and pretty much every other "fy" in the english dictionary the team this week.
My purpose with this post is to point out an advantage that we might be able to gain against our opponent next week. Seems to me these pesky patriotically presented ......prissies(that should work within the site guidelines) are going against the New York Jets this week. How can our team possibly gain an advantage in this game other than thru the traditional methods of filmwork, coaching, practice, and talent utilization?
As we all know, or maybe someone has been under a rock for the past few months, our defensive coordinators older twin brother is currently the head coach of the Jets. Now in the midst of a phone call to discuss what shoes look best on their wives, you think a certain game next week might be brought up? Yeah my thoughts exactly...no way. Why ruin a perfectly good fetish discussion with something as trivial as football.
In all seriousness tho, aside from the genetic connection with this game, this game more than any other will allow us to see what plays of our defense will work best against these Pansies. It will be almost a hindsight effect as we watch how each formation is affected by the playcalling. I believe that more times than not we will be able to anticipate a checkdown by the offense into a favorable defensive situation.
As with laying seige to a city, you try to find the weaknesses in a scheme, then attack full force to overcome. The game this weekend will be important to watch in what type of attack does the offense have problems with? What type of scheme seems to work best to put the QB into detrimental situations. You want to do this every week with every opponent, but very few teams get a chance to run their scheme twice in a row. Key word to remember this week...execution, execution, execution.
Now if refs would only be sure to call those holding penalties on the offensive line....
