Exclamation West coast offense vs Blitzburgh Defense

In your opinion, how much of a problem will the west coast offense present to our Blitzburgh. The west coast does ALOT of short dump passes and intermidiate routes across the flat which is where our LB's and Safeties blitz from alot. It presents alot of problems for lesser and even better than average defenses so you have to account for the middle of the field in a big way.

I dont believe seattle has seen THAT much of the 3-4 to be able to say they're experienced with it and with our athletic defense I still see Lebeau not letting up on the pressure. Its gotten us this far and no matter what you always stop the run first !

D-line has to get their hands up!!!!!!! When facing a west coast O and they are doing alot of 3 step drops the d-line must get their hands up and bat down some of those balls.....The more they can clog up some of the passing lanes the more we can dictate the blitz and or drop off coverage.

thats a good call. our DL has been getting good penetration and pressure all year and its imperative now more than ever.. with those quick drops and passes across the middle getting your hands up is key. Gap sound defense is critical against a RB like alexander too.

The offensive line is critical to going against the 3-4. We have, in Holmgren and Haskell two great strategic minds. The schemes will be interesting to see unfold. The talent will carry it forward. Three all pro O-men ought to help!

It starts and ends w/ the big fat guys on both sides of the ball. Both D-lines are playing great this year and both teams have pro bowlers on the O line.. so its the irresistable force against the immovable object. Somethings gotta give, and the 3-4 is a great defense to make the move with.

the WCO was built by Walsh to stop the 3-4 def that most teams were useing then

Homy runs the WCO in its truest form ... should be a fun matchup to watch :)

LeBeau definitely has his hands full with Hasselback and Alexander but he and the Steelers will definitely be up to the task.....He is a defensive genius and mastermind I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls something nobodys ever seen before...No playin it safe here its all or nothin....

Don't Denver play with a variant of the WCO? We stuffed that up pretty good.

How many 3-4 defences have Seattle faced this season. I know they had all sorts of problems with the Dallas defence and they play 3-4. Any others?

NFL Network I think it was said that was the only 3-4 they faced.

both the 49ers and the cards use the 3-4, and think the titans do too...so that means the HAWK's have faced the 3-4, 6 times this year and won all 6 games...heres going for #7


btw; the version denver runs is nothing like the true form Homy uses that he learned from the master Walsh ... at the same time none of those teams run the 3-4 like the steelers do, theres a reason the steelers are in the superbowl

heres to a great game with both teams leaving it all on the field


p.s. the HAWK's were missing BOTH there starting wideouts for the DALLAS game... may be the reason they struggled ( just a guess )
