Default Fan input on this Offensive Formation

This offensive formation drives me crazy. 9 defenders hovering over the line.

Sure, I'll be your huckelbuck.

We converted. As per NFL.com.

3-4-PIT 46 (6:44) (Shotgun) 7-B.Roethlisberger pass short right to 21-M.Moore to IND 48 for 6 yards (33-M.Bullitt, 23-T.Jennings).

Let me guess...fire Arians?

I only count 10 defenders in that pic, with the safety backing out, the corner wide and the ILB 6 yards off the line of scrimmage. Theoretically they only have 8 in the box with 1 way off the LOS.

I am no QB, but my pre-snap read of that picture tells me they are only rushing 4 d linemen and if they blitz a corner from the bottom of the formation that I can throw to one of my receivers releasing on the left.

Personally I love that formation on 3rd and 4......but not on 3rd and 1.

Personally I believe we make more plays out of that formation than anything else in the playbook...

Yes right now that bunch formation seems to be very effective.

Ya it seems to create some defensive confusion on the side of the bunch formation once the ball is snapped and where the receivers and TE are going... crossing routes and stuff.
Get enough time and someone should pop open fairly quickly...
