Re: Meet the Saints 2008

In the 4-3 you always have more beef on the strong side than the weak side. So thats why the saints do list one of the DT as a NT. That way you know which side of the OC they line up on. Why do they use OC when there is no DC any way?

WR - Colston/
WR - Meachem/
Slot - Patten/ Rookie

Henderson/Copper/Moore/S. Green all replacable. One if not 2 of them will not be here.

LG - Nesbit/Alleman
C - Goodwin/Lehr
RG - Evans/Duckworth

Other than that I have to wait and see how all these defensive trades work out. That could be fun

Re: Meet the Saints 2008

Good article, covers the basics of defensive line play. It's worth a read, even if it's just to brush up.

-LoE

FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Defensive Line Basics: Mind the Gap

A 3-technique tackle, therefore, is one who usually lines up between the guard and tackle, with all privileges, rights, and responsibilities associated with the position. Each technique comes with a set of reads and keys, specific to the defensive system, the offensive formation, and the down-and-distance situation. In most systems, on most plays, a tackle lined up in 3-technique is supposed to shoot the gap immediately; in a 4-technique, one step to the right or left, his job might be to bottle up the offensive tackle so a linebacker can shoot the gap. In the 2-gap, tackles are often told to "draw responsibility" from two blockers, the football equivalent of "eating space" in basketball.

Why is there so much emphasis on 3-technique tackles lately? Basically, there are two types of tackles. There's the Ted Washington type, who weighs 320 pounds before a meal and is known for his size and power, not his quickness (though many of these players are pretty quick). Then there are players like the Kevin Williams and Rod Coleman: 290-pounders who are quick enough to shoot a gap or execute a stunt. These latter players are 3-technique tackles. The Washington-types aren't called 0-technique or 1-technique tackles because they already have a better name: nose tackles.

The 3-technique tackle is in short supply because few players leave college with the right mix of strength, explosiveness, technique, and durability. Systems like Tony Dungy's rely heavily on 3-technique tackles to disrupt the interior of the offensive line. For most defensive coordinators, heaven is a 3-technique tackle who is in the backfield on every play, a 0-technique tackle who requires two blockers and controls two gaps, and a pass rushing end (7,8,or 9 technique) who also requires a double team on every play.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

and yet my post isn't wrong... I am glad you keep pointing this out because its starting to show your agenda. If you have something to say on the topic please do so but I advise you to refrain from getting personal here.

Re: Meet the Saints 2008

Actually, no disrespect or anything, but it is possible to have a nose tackle in a 4-3.

Please don't take me wrong, I'm not trying to stir up anything. I just wanted to point out that 4-3 or 3-4 is irrelevant where NT is concerned.
