THROWS TO GO!

 

 

POTENTIAL BIG PLAYS JINTS AND ’BOYS WILL TRY TODAY

 

January 13, 2008 -- Former Steelers fullback Merril Hoge - expert analyst for

ESPN2's “NFL Live" and “NFL Match-Up," and on several other programs

across the network - breaks down for The Post one offensive play

will employ today against the Cowboys, and one Cowboys play that

Big Blue will have to defend: New York Giants

 

 

 

SLOT LEFT, DOUBLE POST, Z OUT, SLIDE RIGHT

 

This is a play the Giants ran on a third and 10 against Dallas in the second meeting and gained 23 yards on a pass to Amani Toomer Amani Toomer t.gif (81). The Giants have Toomer and Sinorice Moss Sinorice Moss t.gif

(83) running posts on the left, Moss' deeper, against three defensive

backs and a dropping linebacker. Plaxico Burress (17) runs a 15-yard

out against a corner, with a safety staying home to respect an in cut.

The Giants keep seven guys in to block five rushers to give Eli Manning

(10) time to thread the needle. The Giants must get results from plays

like this, because the Cowboys play this coverage (quarters - four deep

defenders) a lot.

 

SLOT LEFT, Z IN, MOTION SCREEN LEFT

 

This

play gives the Cowboys a chance to get the ball into the hands of

Marion Barber (24) on the perimeter. It's a good play against the

blitz, and is also useful in slowing down speed rushers, which is a

Giants strength. The reason the Cowboys put Terrell Owens (81) in

motion and have him run a crossing route is to pull coverage with him

and away from the screen play. The keys for the Giants are for the

defensive line to recognize it early, pull off the pass rush and chase,

and for the underneath defenders to not get caught up with Owens so

they can quickly react to Barber.
