Break It Down: Saints’ ability to create ‘confusion’ could pay off vs. Josh Freeman
 
While talking with Peter King for an article that ran in Sports Illustrated‘s 2011 NFL season preview issue, Saints coach Sean Payton pulled up tape of a play from his team’s game with the Jets in 2009, Rex Ryan’s first season as head coach.

King’s description of the play: New York had a left defensive end over New Orleans’s right tackle, no one over the right guard, center or left guard, a defensive end over the left tackle and a standup linebacker on the end’s right shoulder. Quarterback Drew Brees stood at the line figuring what to do. Linebackers and defensive backs moved around, showing nothing. “And here they come,” said Payton. “They knock at the front door with one guy, then shove 10 through the back.”

The Jets’ unexpected alignment was even more extreme on the play before, generating enough pressure up front to throw Brees’ timing off-kilter. Just as on the play that Payton showed King, the Jets lined up with two defensive linemen, three linebackers and six DBs.

They shouldn't have to try too hard. The guy can't wake up to get to the team photo shoot. Plus his own coach rigged the captains election against him.
