have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
Vikings lined up to start the game in an I. Philly matched up in a 4-3
with a Safety in the box. They sent everyone. It was a run, and the four
guys over ran the RB. He got through line, and was taken down by Cox.
and 4, Vikings Bunch up the right in a Singleback. Philly matched up in a
4-3 with a DB in front of the Bunch. When the WR motioned the DB followed
to show they were in Man. They slanted the DLs the right, and the RB was
able to cut back. Jalen Mills and Timmy Jernigan brought down the RB
short. 3rd and 2, Trips Right Weak Shotgun. Eagles matched up in a 4-2
Nickel with both safeties up in the box. They ran a Draw, and Bradham shot
forward and tripped up the RB a tick late.
and 10, the Vikes motioned into a 2-Wide Weak shotgun. Eagles matched up
in a 4-3 with five guys on the line. They send four, and the three LBs
zone drop. Keenum dumped it off to the RB swinging out of the backfield.
He ran for the first.
and 10, Singleback. Philly matched up in a 4-4 with an LB lined up between
the Strongside DT and DE. They are keying run all the way. Ellerbe shifted
up to the line when the TE motioned to the other side. All eight attack
the line in run defense as the ball was snapped. Murray powered for more
than he should dragging about ten guys with him.
and 6, Singleback. The Eagles backed off a little in a more conventional
4-3, with a Safety up in front of the TE. The Vikes ran play action, and
all three LBs jumped forward, and bailed back in panic. Keenum hit the WR
outside for a First.
and 10, the Vikings motioned into a Singleback with twin TEs on the weak
and Twin WRs on the strong. Eagles went back to the 4-4 look with five
guys on the line. All eight guys attacked forward, and both safeties came
up as they keyed run all the way. They finally pushed the little scatback
out of bounds, after he got outside for the First. Philly tends to over
stack the middle, and give up the edges a little more.
and 10, Vikes went 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Eagles key pass and back off a
little in a 4-3. The Vikes ran again, and Mychal Kendricks and Ronald
Darby bring the RB down. 2nd and 6, Trips right Weak shotgun. Vikings
lined up in a 4-3 with a safety up barking signals. He moved up to the
line, and ordered the Will outside. Keenum threw to the TE for the TD.
lined up in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Foley ran play action and waggled
outside. He hit Agholor for an easy First.
and 10, Philly came out Empty. They sent seven guys into the box, and the
weakside TE chipped and went out. Foley stepped up and hit a WR in the
hands, and the CB knocked it out. His WR was drifting to the middle, and
he threw it behind him a little. So the WR had to drift back towards the
and 10, Philly went 3-Wide Weak shotgun. The X-WR ran behind Foles. Foles
threw it to him on the other side, like he was an RB swinging out of the
backfield. He ran for six.
and 4, Philly went 4-Wide Weak, Trips-R shotgun. Foles threw a beautiful
pass to the TE. He couldn't get both feet in, as he leaped up for the ball
for no apparent reason. Then the Philly Jammer crashed into the Returner
on the punt after the Fair Catch for 15-yards.
came out in a 4-Wide Weak shotgun. Philly matched up in a 4-2 Nickel, with
the FS creeping up into the box. All 11-defenders were within 10-yards of
the LOS. The Eagles send four, and all four DLs got great initial bursts
off the snap. The LBs both over-jumped forward off the play action. Darby
had great coverage on Diggs outside, and he couldn't hold on.
and 10, they motioned into a Trips-Right 4-Wide Weak shotgun. Philly
stayed 4-2 Nickel, but went into Cover One with the FS back deep. Then one
of the LBs shifted over to the Trips side just before the snap. They ran,
and Cox stuffed it by himself.
and 10, the Vikes motioned into a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Philly went 4-2,
but the LBs were back further guarding the magic yellow line. They rushed
four again. Keenum made the big throw on 3rd down again. Philly's D is
doing a great job keying on the Vikes D. Except for their extreme reaction
to play action, they seem to read it right every time.
and 10, the Vikes went Singleback. Philly matched up in their 4-4 again,
with the Safety on the strongside in front of the TE. Then Diggs went in
motion to put Twins on the Weakside, and the LBs all shifted to his side.
But all eight attacked forward, keying run. Vikes like the zone-blocking,
and the RB was almost able to cut back behind the line. But Cox friggin'
got him again, when it looked like everyone but him was fooled on the D.
and 8, the Vikes double stacked the Strong shotgun. Philly matched up in a
4-2 Nickel with two DBs in front of each stack. Keenum threw quick, but
Cooks dropped it. 3rd and 8, Vikes motioned into a 4-Wide Strong shotgun.
Philly matched up in a 4-1 Dime. They shifted two DBs in front of the two
slot guys (1 TE 1 WR). Then went man straight across. Keenum criminally
under threw the ball to his WR (although it looked like Long my have
swiped his arm a bit). The ball went right into the hands of Patrick
Robinson, and he got a pick-six. Philly-7. Vikes-7.
and 10, Vikes lined up in a Singleback. Philly went into their 4-4 against
the Singleback again. You will likely see this a lot on Sunday. The Pats
have been going Singleback a lot in the Playoffs. As Keenum signaled, the
LB and DB on the strongside creeped up to the line. All eight guys
attacked forward off the snap. The RB hop-cut to the left, behind the zone
blocking OLs, and got about five.
and 5, Vikes motioned into a 3-Wide Strong shotgun. Philly went 5-2, and
sent all five guys on the LOS. Then Kendricks dropped out and covered the
TE, and Keenum misfired. 3rd and 6, the Vikes went 4-Wide Weak shotgun.
They went into a 2-5, with five guys on the line, with two ILB. They sent
all seven. Keenum had to throw short, and the WR couldn't break a tackle
to get the First.
Pats had better be able to handle their blitzes and over aggressive
fronts, or it is going to be a long game. This is the most aggressive
front-7 I've seen this season.
came out in a 3-Wide Strong shotgun: 1 for 1 Pass. But they have to start
running the ball. Foles cannot survive if they don't run the ball. They
ran a Draw to Ajayi. He slipped outside and ran for over ten.
and 10, Philly went 3-Wide Weak shotgun: 1 for 1 Pass. So do they go every
other in this formation, and run here again? Yes sir. They ran a Dive to
Ajayi. He hopped to the right for a nice power run. 2nd and 3, Philly
motioned into a 3-Wide stack-R Winged shotgun. Winged shotguns are always
pass, because the two RB next to the QB can block, chip, or just go out.
That is the primary advantage of having two RB next to the QB in the
shotgun. In this case the RB on the Right went for a pass, and the other
stayed in to block. Foles hit Alshon Jeffries on a Skinny Post.
and 10, the Vikes lined up in a 3-Wide Stack-R Singleback. They ran a
Jet-Sweep for a loss. 2nd and 11, Philly went into a Tight Singleback.
Foles wanted to go deep. But he had to pump fake, and hit the TE in the
box. 3rd and 10, Vikes went 4-Wide, Trips-R Weak shotgun (and I don't have
to say they are passing here, right;). The RB stayed in to block. He got
to other side of Foles to pick up the blitzer. Foles hit Ertz. He swung
around and fell forward for the First.
and 10, Philly lined up at the 36 in a 3-Wide Weak shotgun: 1 for 2 Pass.
So if they like to switch back and forth by formation they will pass here.
They ran play action. Foles threw quick to Ertz slanting inside. 2nd and
2, Philly lined up with some power, in a 3-TE Singleback. This is
obviously a run formation, and I want to outsmart myself and say they will
throw (but I won't;).
ran a dive to the Single-TE side, and not the 2-TE side. Blount was
stopped short. But then he kept those feet chuggin' and fell forward for
and 10 at the 26, Philly went 3-Wide Weak shotgun again. If they continue
the switch strategy they will throw here. They ran play action, and Foley
threw so quick to Jeffries on the slant, that I thought it was a fake and
he really did hand it off to the RB. That was impressive.
and 1, Philly lined up in a Twins-Twins Singleback (TEs-L WRs-R). Then
they annoyingly (after I categorize it;) motioned the outside TE to the
Twin-WR side. They faked a Jet sweep, and handed the ball off underneath
to the RB. They did not pick up the first.
and less than 1, Philly went 3-Wide Strong shotgun, Stack-L. If they
continued to go every other (3-Wide Strong shotgun) it will be a run. I
don't know how the Stack affects it yet. They ran play action. Ertz was
wide open dragging underneath the outside WR. They seem to like to throw
with the WRs stacked. We'll see if that holds up.
and 10 at the 11, Philly motioned into a 3-Wide, WR-Stack-R Singleback,
and I have no idea what they're doing here. Then they motioned into a
Double Stacked Singleback, and I'm sayin' it's a run. They ran a Dive.
Blount slashed through the line, and got a head of steam going. And as we
saw for many years, once he has that head of steam going near the Endzone
you cannot stop him. He smashed into two DBs inside the Five, and carried
the second one four yards into the Endzone for a great power TD. OMG.
