If the I-formation and the spread offense had a baby…

Really good piece at Football Study Hall about the rise of the deep threat slot receiver in spread attacks here.

Sometimes I wonder if defenses are ever going to catch up.

Now, this is dedication.

Missouri blogger posts a piece analyzing every Maty Mauk throw against Georgia.

Well, I appreciated it.

“I think past Alabama teams would have had just as much trouble as this Alabama team.”

Gary Danielson ain’t backing off his tempo talk.

“I think what was proven in this game right now is all this stuff about tempo is garbage…”

But he finally seems to be coming to terms with what spread, pass-first offenses bring to the table.

“There are a lot of factors here. The willingness of teams to go to the spread and throw the ball on early downs, not having to go toe-to-toe with superior athletes at Alabama at the line of scrimmage has an effect. The fact that the SEC has gotten all this publicity and has recruited so well, top to bottom, the games are just tougher.”  [Emphasis added.]

If he’s right, Saban’s got a few more tough games left to play.  Best brace yourself, Phyllis from Mulga.

It takes a village to stop a pass rush.

Georgia has only allowed six sacks so far this season.

Missouri’s defensive ends have combined for 18 tackles for losses and 12 sacks so far this season.  As a team, Missouri is first in the SEC with eighteen sacks.

Something’s gotta give.  Will it be Georgia’s offensive tackles?

“Are they ready to just man on man, pass pro these guys down after down without them creating some problems? I doubt it.,” he said. “I don’t know if anybody can just shut them down. They’re just very dynamic rushers, and you’re going to have to find a way to give them some help.”

Help doesn’t come just from double teams and backs chipping those ends.  It’s from playcalling, too.

Starting right tackle Kolton Houston knows a big reason opposing pass rushers have been kept at bay: a bruising running game.

“When you’re slamming the power down people’s throat, it’s really hard for those guys to get off the ball and get vertical,” Houston said. “If they start doing that, they’re just going to open up huge running lanes. Teams have had to honor our running game so if we can establish our running game that will help us.”

Gurley, Gurley and mo’ Gurley.  And when in doubt, Gurley and screen passes.


UPDATE:  Here’s the infographic of Missouri’s defensive production.
