Thread: Tackle the catch? Seahawks dominated that way

  1. #1

    Don't like tackle the catch? Seahawks dominated that way

    Peyton set the record for completions while throwing 70 percent.
    And Ovi said they didn't just tackle the catch? What?

    Peyton Manning's 34 completions and DeMaryius Thomas' 13 catches in Super Bowl XLVIII both set individual records in the 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

    They did it like nobody EVER has in a SB. We attack the ball more than they did in that game, the picks were errant passes caused by pressure.

    Our problem is is we can't catch, and are aging not scheme.

    But that is attacking only those where they are coming forward. Get a team that can stretch them deep and run the ball half way descent (keep them honest), they wont be tackling that many underneath passes.

    I am not taking anything away from Seattle, they did a great job, but when a team is one dimensional on offense it isn't all that hard.

    I would love to see the YAC that the Donkeys averaged. I would think that it would be historically low. The Seattle D maintained their gaps and made their tackles.

    Not sure an Offense that sets all those records is "1 dimensional"

    The Broncos averaged 6.0 YAC/rec in 2013.

    In the Superbowl, they averaged 3.6 YAC/rec.

    SEA blitzed on only 12% of plays, lowest the Broncos faced all season.

    SEA loaded the box on defense on 30% of the plays, highest the Broncos faced all season.

    The Seahawks didn't blitz ebacsue they have a four man defensive line that attacks the QB and puts pressure on him every play. They are attacking, not "occupying blockers." This frees up the LBs to take away the underneath zones on pass plays. Manning had a high percentage because the pressure forced him to dump the ball quickly. And while the Seattle DBs "tackled the catch," they didn't spot the WRs 8-10 yards. They tackled the catch immediated which was clearly shown by the AC because they were on them like clue.

    So yes, it is very much scheme.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!
