 Do you contain on both sides? Do you add a spy to keep tabs for the entire game or in key situations? What if your data presents a different picture? What if it says you don’t need to do any of that?For Super Bowl Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz Brandon Brooks Jersey , devising his rush plan starts with the quarterback, not the offensive line. He detailed this philosophy in a 2015 C.O.O.L. (Coaches of Offensive Linemen) Clinic.How do you quantify where a quarterback typically throws from and how he likes to escape the pocket? Schwartz helped develop a process for this during his 2001-2008 stint as defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans. They started with graph paper, marking an “X” for every throw at the correlating space on the graph. Later the process would be computerized.What did they find with this charting data?This allowed Schwartz to sell the idea of moving away from a non-traditional pass rush plan. If they knew where a quarterback liked to escape and where they, in turn, wanted to flush him, then they could present that quarterback with options that played into the defenses hands. Ideally, one option is a quarterback could step into pressure or get rid of the ball with haste and the other option would be taking a path that the quarterback was uncomfortable throwing from.Additionally, if you knew where a quarterback liked to escape, you didn’t have to cover up every gap in your pass rush plan. This is something we’ve talked about constantly on The Kist & Solak Show regarding the Eagles’ defensive line freelancing and not concerning themselves with gap discipline on passing downs. Schwartz confirmed our suspicions and gave the why:Finally, Schwartz would go on to note the differences between down and distance situations and how that played a role in how it limited or expanded the options available to an individual pass rusher.This also impacts his philosophy in the red zone, where the ball gets out quicker. He advised against moves like the speed rush in those situations, stressing the quickness in which the ball comes out of the quarterback’s hand when the field condenses.Knowing what we now know about Schwartz’s process, it was time to put it into practice. I charted every throw from Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton in Week 6. I marked each throw with a yellow circle and then connected it with a thin yellow line to it’s throw location. Shout out to Next Gen Stats for the initial data and the graph.What does this tell us about Newton? First, it tells us he’s an extremely stationary thrower more in the mold of a pocket quarterback than what you may have imagined. Newton would much rather hitch up in the pocket and get rid of the ball before pressure arrives than dart out of it and throw on the move. Whether this attitude was always there or developed over years of taking a beating from designed runs (of which there are still plenty) and taking shows trying to deliver on the move, I’m not sure.What I am sure of is that the Eagles’ game-plan doesn’t need to involve a heavy emphasis on contain or spying. To further illustrate that point Authentic Jordan Hicks Jersey , I charted every single scramble from Newton in 2018. This confirmed what I saw in the Week 6 data.In fives games only 4 throws come from outside of the pocket on a scramble and only one went for a completion. This does not include designed play-action roll-outs where he moved along his natural track, but there weren’t many of those either. He opted to run from a scramble on only 11 occasions. 11 of 15 of these scrambles move toward his ball-hand.I noticed on his film that on third down teams would overload or shift their line to the right of the offensive line. This tells you teams are certainly cognizant of the obvious fact that Newton is right-handed, not only as a thrower but as a scrambler. That may be the only change that the Eagles make in their plan against the Panthers from this data.Make no mistake though, Newton is not exactly Peyton Manning, he’s still a viable run threat. But the restrictions placed on rushers against perpetually scrambling quarterbacks like Russell Wilson will likely not be installed to such a high degree in this instance. Those restraints include eliminating the “two-way go” from a pass rushers repertoire and putting him strictly in a contain role.Simply, the spot the Eagles are rushing is the the most frequent launch point.
For Newton, that launch point is in the pocket.If they alter their tactics for other factors, like how the Panthers often pull a lineman or tight end across the formation to block the backside EMLOS (end man on line of scrimmage), that’s an entirely different beast. This will take discipline from our defensive ends and also present them with some non-conventional rush angles. There’s also the matter of accounting for Newton in the Panthers’ option game, which is likely a stronger focus for Schwartz this week.Ultimately, this knowledge in invaluable. Knowing how and why Schwartz develops his rush plans allows us to go beyond conjecture and decipher why certain schemes were deployed or not deployed. In this case, the Eagles’ plan involves trying to flush a stationary quarterback out of the pocket and to his left, away from his ball-hand. Also, sacking him would be ideal. If they don’t, Schwartz will have a report with every throw and how quickly the ball was released on his desk on Monday morning. Bleeding Green Nation already took some time to chat with Cat Scratch Reader in order to preview this week’s Philadelphia Eagles versus Carolina Panthers matchup. (You can read that here.) Today Youth Stefen Wisniewski Jersey , we’re back with three reasons why each team might lose. This format forces us to consider each team’s weaknesses, rather than just being homers.So, below are three reasons why the Panthers could lose, as written by Cat Scratch Reader’s Walker Clement. To see why I think the Eagles could lose, check out CSR.1. The Panthers lack aggression. It’s as simple as that. They might build up a small lead, say 10 points or so, but then they’ll relax into soft coverage shells and run the ball on 98% of their offensive snaps. The Eagles will have every opportunity they need to get back in the game if they find themselves in a hole. Factor in that Rivera seems to actively prefer punting or attempting field goals instead of keeping a drive alive (and risking a touchdown) on fourth and short from just about anywhere on the field, and the Eagles will always be in a position to beat the Panthers.2. Wendell Smallwood is in for a career day.The Panthers have a history of giving up big games to second tier running backs. Last week was the rare time that Adrian Peterson -or any other premier back- had a big day against us and even he didn’t top 100 yards rushing. The Panthers’ defensive line will continue to struggle to control the line of scrimmage which will allow the Eagles to scheme plays away from their linebackers. Expect Smallwood to be able to find space when he needs it and you can probably go ahead and bet on a few ‘unexpected’ highlight plays as well.3. The last reason the Panthers will lose is chaos.The first few games of a season are always weird and help teams figure out who they actually are. In the Panthers case, the first three games of 2018 were relatively plain. They apparently then figured out that they are a team of unmitigated shenaniganry. Six crazy turnovers, that have been split evenly for and against the team, and a whole lot of special decision making on special teams later and this team is impossible to predict. To me, that translates to a win for the more consistent team. You can’t expect to beat the Giants every week on a last second, 63-yard field goal.
