Dear New DC,
 
Whoever you are,

Please institute this defense at the very least in package looks, but I would prefer it to be the base: create a 43 Double Fan which would obviously be played out of an under front (akin to below only with tighter splits than the 3T DT and 7 DE):

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/...h-blogSpan.jpg

Background:

A double fan classically comes from 34 looks. Essentially it means the DL is going to adjust their splits so they're basically heads up on the opposing IOL (NT over C, DEs over Gs). What makes this a double fan is the pass rushing ability of BOTH 34 OLBs (see Pittsburgh's Harrison and Woodley -- also note the leaps and bounds of improvement of Washington's defense by adding Kerrigan opposite Orakpo and often playing double fans). Both OLBs will them line up over the tackles.
What does this create? One on one match ups across the board. Additionally, blitzing an ILB over the A gaps gives him a STRAIGHT shot at the QB with AT MOST a RB to try and stop him.


Von Miller gives us the freedom to apply this to our 43.

Imagine Elvis, Thomas, Bunkley, Ayers, Miller all one on one against the opposing OL. Getting wood yet? Good, let's go deeper.

Press coverage behind it. Lackluster for turnovers, for sure (at least until the effectiveness starts to embolden to jumping routes and putting 6 on the board with semi-regularity), but provides the rush and blitz another second to get to the QB and will be certain to cause both incompletions and sacks (*probably even more prominently intentional groundings) in spades. Press coverage (needed upgrades at RCB and nickel back), with a cover 1 safety (Moore dependent on development), and a box safety (Carter) to baby sit the TE to accommodate a potentially blitzing LB.

Enough p***Y footing around when we have significant pressure weapons.
Kill em all, let Tebow sort em out.

I prefer the 3-8 we ran against NE.

I dont think we'll be able to get an elephant in that new Nike gear. Would a baby one do???

A little OT, but you made me wonder. Have any names even been mentioned for d-coordinator yet? I just realized I haven't seen anything about us looking at guys. Is that a sign we are just promoting from within?

Also, more on topic, how much of the defense was Allen? Did our scheme look a lot different than what Fox had in Carolina or will we see something new with each new coordinator? I didn't watch the Panthers much.

I know.. I was a little surprised to hear John Fox say he was in no rush to name a DC.

To me that sounds like the Broncos have someone on staff they are promoting.

I also wonder if Dennis Allen is going to bring any of the other coaches from the Broncos to Oakland.

What are the Vegas odds of whoever it is, coming in on day one and quoting some variation of the following within the first 3 minutes of his introductory press conference:

"We're going to cut the DL loose."

don't forget the 10-yard cushions. those are really effective at letting a receiver get up to speed unmolested so they can make a move and juke out our young secondary players. i just l-o-v-e those 10-yard cushions. they remind me of the Slowick era... good times.

Mind=Blown!

Of course, not having any talent on the DL....

damn - just typing that made me realize how ****ty the DL has been....for that long.

This looks suspeciously like a wide-9 with the SLB playing the role of the SDE and the SDE taking away the B gap run to the right which is normally very vulnerable.

That's because you clearly looked at the picture and didn't bother reading the post. Beneath you, this was.

Damn, I could have sworn my chair was beneath me - I shall consider this new theory of yours.

vancejohnson82 01-27-2012 09:40 AM

Andre Goodman would be strongly against this

Garcia Bronco 01-27-2012 09:44 AM

We'd need to sign Bunkley and Thomas first.

it's going to be very hard to sign both of them with all of the attention they are sure to garner this off-season

Bunkley is going to get big money on the open market. I'm not optimistic about keeping him.

Hopefully they are taking a hard look at Spags or Nolan.

no it isnt , but no plan is going to work as long as we are giving Cushions with no pressure up front and no line backer that can cover a TE ........
