A Quick Note About Beating Pressure

The Niners are similar to the Giants in that they bring pressure. Justin Smith might be defensive player of the year. Aldon Smith has been a terror in his freshman campaign. They bring heat, and often.

One of the best, and most simple, way to beat pressure is a short check down. Because everyone is coming at the QB, that leaves the flat wide open. Swing it to Bradshaw or Ware and gain 6 or 7 yards. Soon enough, the defense has to back off a bit and then you can throw with a little more time.

Of course, this is kind of annoying for offenses, as it’s not their usual gameplan. But like I always say: simple is sometimes the most effective.

    Isn’t this how Vince Young and the Eagles beat the Giants in that last drive at the game in the Meadowlands?

    • Jason C. says:

      Yes, Vince Young of the Dream Team that’s been sitting at home with their hands up their asses the past couple of weeks.

    Absolutely correct about that. The dump off pass, three step drop and bang. You can kill them all day, with that and screen passes, any quick hitter and draw plays too. Let them come and give it to Bradshaw who will squeeze through a small hole and get into the second level before they can get there. Might even work for Jacobs if he stops tip toeing.

    It really depends on what the defense does. I am sure they are going to have some looks we do not have on film and do things they planned out special to get to Eli. He has to get rid of the ball fast and everybody has to run precise routs no slacking. You are going to have to sell it even though you are not getting the ball.
