Why did the Rams D defend them so well, considering? The Rams defenders said it was at least partly because the Patz did not run anything new at them. They said they saw nothing they weren't prepared for.HellRam wrote: ↑Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:48 pmAgain...I'm not talking about personnel and scheme being the same things. Where am I inserting that notion? I'm solely talking about McVay and his scheme. At this point we're just repeating ourselves. So I'll retire my point here.
Oh and Belichick adjusts his schemes as much as any coach in the league. I don't understand how anyone could say other. I'll even post a link. Now I'm one who takes what the media says lightly. That said this is pretty much universally agreed upon.
Did McVay adjust quickly enough to what the Patz D did to them? No. But I don't think that's the scheme per se---I think that's McVay on his feet as a playcaller. In other words, execution. Do I think McVay will learn from that? Yes.
Another issue was Goff, young as he is, not adapting quickly enough to unexpected post-snap looks. They took that issue seriously enough to work on it this off-season and make it a priority. I personally think that will include working in more sight adjustments so that WRs change up based on post-snap reads. If all that works, it won't be as easy for a smart defense to stymie the Rams.
Another issue was pressuring the OL. I am going to assume that a combination of Allen and Blythe is less vulnerable when it comes to that then the Sullivan/Blythe combo was.
I think we actually agree on, and overlap on, a lot of this. And I appreciate the fact that while we were basically at loggerheads, it didn't become disrespectful or personal.We may have misread one another a bit here and there but that's just part of being on the internet. No big.
So I am going to just rest for now on the places where we agree. This all may come again later when everyone knows more.
