Up To The Lines.
Pats D Vs Falcon's O-
The Chargers have been on fire the past few weeks. "I mean this is
certainly a very hot team right now. An offense that is doing everything
they can to win the game, put their team in position to win, control the
game," Patricia said. "Certainly I think the run game, Coach
Whisenhunt, obviously Coach Lynn has brought his philosophy of running the
ball and trying to control the game from that aspect and wearing out the
defense." They got two big veteran O-tackles in free agency, and they
are wearing defenses down.
has good size, but he also has elite speed in the open field. "Melvin
Gordon is an extremely strong runner, a very powerful guy, kind of a work
horse sort of running back," Patricia said. "So being able to
run the ball inside and outside with him, he's got great balance, burst,
vision, very good stiff arm. This guy is really hard to tackle on first
contact so with that kind of constant pounding that he can provide they've
been able to really kind of establish the run from a number of just
handing the ball off, handling the ball off and just repeatedly coming
after the defense from that standpoint.
who has been in there more recently here, is a real good change up back
for them. Both of these guys are also involved in the passing game but [in
terms of] speed and quickness he's definitely a guy that's a different
type of runner but also very, very productive. His run average is
extremely high." Both RBs are also excellent compliments in the
use those RBs very well to set up the passing game. "Those two guys
in the run game, and then combine them into the passing game, is kind of
really where they've started with this offense," McDaniels said.
"Then you push into the tight ends which we just talked about Gates
and how great he is. And then really Hunter Henry who's another guy who is
coming on very strong for them. I think another guy in the tight end
position that the quarterback has a lot of trust in, has really started to
feature a little bit in the passing game also. They do a good job, the
offense, Coach Whisenhunt, Coach Lynn do a good job with mixing the
personnel and the formations." They will run anything out of any
make it tough for the defenders to read their intentions. "That's one
of the hardest things is the formations and the motions that they give
you," Patricia said. "There's a lot of adjustments that have to
go on. Then they create angles in both the run game and then leverage in
the passing game. So that's something that they've done an excellent job
with. Then when you get through all that you've got to try to deal with
the wide receivers." They have a great passing game.
has been one of the top WRs in the NFL on 3rd down conversions.
"Keenan Allen who's an excellent-excellent wide receiver. He's got
great hands, he's a big guy, he can get open, he's a great route runner,
does all of the things that you want from that standpoint," Patricia
said. "Then you mix with Benjamin and Williams, guys that have been
able to push the ball vertically or just get explosive plays. I mean
obviously you can see the speed of Benjamin there the other day [with] how
fast he is. They can take those what might look like small plays or small
gains or short completion or whatever the case may be, a reverse and then
turn it into just a huge play with their ability to get into space and
make people miss and in some cases just run away from people. So it's a
huge challenge." Speed and power is the combo all offenses want to
it was the two Big OTs Okung and Barksdale that really brought this
offense together. "I'll tell you up front too, you know, I think the
offensive line [is] a little bit of a change there for them coming in with
Slauson going out but really just being solid up front, playing smart,
doing a good job with the adjustments," Patricia said. "Philip
Rivers still has control of the offense from at the line of scrimmage
standpoint. [They run a] ‘check with me' system where he can change
plays and the offensive line is right there with him. I think the group is
really kind of all on the same page right now. They're clicking very well
together from the standpoint of what they're trying to do by game plan so
that will be a big challenge for us." They found their continuity on
Offense three weeks ago, and now are much better than the offense we faced
last week, the Falcons.
First it starts with Gus Bradley, ex-Seattle DC and Jaguars' HC. "I
think there's definitely some similarities. They're not all the same.
There's enough variables and enough things that they choose to do
differently based on their personnel that it's certainly not a carbon copy
of either scheme, whichever one you want to discuss and talk about,"
McDaniels said. "So this team, the way they utilize their fronts,
some of the things they do with their personnel is definitely different
than what we've seen last week, or what we've seen from that style of
defense in the past." That's not really true.
defense are founded in the belief that getting up field fast and hurting
the QB is always best and most important thing to do, Pete Carroll's core
philosophy. "They're aggressive," McDaniels understated.
"They know exactly what they want to do on every snap. They rarely
make a defensive miscue. They don't give up many big plays, and it's all
about taking the ball away. And they've done that very well over the last
two years even before Gus was there. I know that's a huge point of
emphasis for them. They're very active and aggressive." They send
both D-ends up field like stampeding rhinos, and play cover one on the
all their young defenders finally coming through, it is working as well as
any Defense in the NFL. "I mean, they're in the top ten in points
allowed, red zone defense, passing defense, third-and-long defense,
turnovers, sacks. They know how to take the ball away. They know how to
disrupt the offense and they don't give up big plays," McDaniels
said. "So they force you to drive the ball a long way and execute a
lot of different plays while they're trying to create negative situations
and get off the field. [They're a] really well coached unit, got a lot of
good players at all three levels.
got a lot of young players and this is a team that we really don't know.
We've played a few of these guys before but most of these players we've
never played and certainly we haven't played them in a few years. We're
really working hard to try and get familiar with all of their personnel
and how they play and what they do and what Coach Bradley is doing with
them this year." They have been a better team, and defense, than
Atlanta the past three weeks.
the key to victory is the O-line, the more Brady gets knocked off his
rocker the more the Chargers get over their jetlag. "I'd say they
don't go past the quarterback a lot. Usually when they go past the tackle
they hit the quarterback instead of going past the tackle and running by
the quarterback. So if they can't get the quarterback they do a pretty
good job of powering the tackles or countering and coming back underneath
the tackles as the quarterback moves up in the pocket. They do a very good
job of maintaining their relationship with the quarterback and ending up
on his level," BB said about the passrushers. "Again, if they
can get the edge, which they get it plenty, and just beat the tackle off
the spot and turn the corner sometimes. They just turn the corner and make
the play but when the tackle is able to ride him by then rarely do they
get just pushed back out of the play. They either counter back or turn
into power and a lot of time they collapse the width of the pocket so the
tackles get compressed back into each other or back towards the center.
it's hard for the quarterback to step up because the pocket is so narrow.
There's no width to it. They do a real good job of all that. You just
can't say it's all speed or it's all power or it's all counter. They have
them all. They can both throw a number of different pitches. They do one
thing and then you go to stop that and then they do the next complementary
move that goes with it then you're thinking about that and then they just
run you over. It's just a continuous [process]. Honestly, as you go
through each game it's just a continuous highlight reel between the two of
them. It's usually one of them but a lot of times it's both of them that
are just being disruptive." Run the ball to slow the rush.
the O-lines blocks the run game like they did last week? This is another
easy victory. "They're all capable of making good plays and they're
all capable of helping us move the ball and that's the most important
thing that we feel about our group of backs," McDaniels said.
"There's some that are maybe down and distance related. There's
others that are maybe packages that certain guys practice more than others
during the course of the week and then at times you just let a guy try to
take a series and get himself into a rhythm. A lot of that is based on how
the game goes and what happens during that series of downs, what kind of
down and distance situations you find yourself in and then the type of
success that you're having with what you're doing.
not as cut and dry as just divvying it up equally or 'This series it's
this guy only,' or what have you. I mean, there's a lot of different
things that could go into that. [RB coach] Ivan has them all prepared for
each situation and each role and they all do a tremendous job of backing
one another up because we always have more than one guy that's capable of
going in there and playing a different role, whatever that role might be.
They all practice hard at that. They prepare well and it's a really
hard-working group that you have a lot of trust and faith in to go in
there and either run the ball, pass protect, catch the ball out of the
backfield and ultimately just help us move the ball down the field and try
to score points. I thought their ball security was good the other night.
They all ran hard. We had a few blitz pickup situations that were done
had some guys catch the ball out of the backfield. As a group I thought
they really played well. They complemented one another well and they all
went in there and did their job. They're all unselfish. They don't care
who gets the credit. They're just willing to go in there and when it's
their turn they do the best that they can to help us in the role that we
ask them to. I'm happy with what they did and looking forward to trying to
improve that whole group as we move through the season." Run to
protect Brady, and the run play action.
