    The EDS Formation

    I haven't seen anyone really talk about this much, if at all.

    I think he was in the running formations 4-5 times last week. IIRC they were both for Green's longest runs and one was a key block.

    I wasn't really the only one that noticed him out there right? I know it makes our run game more obvious but eventually we'll put the PA fake in there and we might really hit them with a dagger if they get suckered in.

    We talked about subtle things to change the O. This is one. And for the most part, I thought it worked.

    Would you guys like to see the 6th OL in the future?

    I saw it I just didn't think too much of it at the time. I just figured with Kuhn out they needed someone to be the full back.

    hell if it keeps working why not go for it. back when Favre was here didn't we run something called the U71 or something where they ran that Kevin Barry I think was his name out there as the extra lineman and run the ball that way.

    IIRC In the u71 wouldn't Barry be on the LOS on the end of the line. EDS was actually off the LOS. I believe so he could motion easily. That's how I remember the plays.

    yeah Barry was on the LOS but, I was just saying that we used to bring an extra lineman out and used to have success running the ball so I would have no problem running plays like that

    I was more asking if you knew lol. Not calling you out. I don't remember it that well.

    I'd like to see EDS get inside and lead with some thunder up the middle. He looked like he had some get off for a big boy.

    They could pull the old Madden gimmick where you line up in the Fullhouse formation and instead of a full back and a tight end you put in two lineman lol

    Pretty much my thoughts. I figured it was because Kuhn was out. Not a terrible move. Still think he should be playing center though.

    You weren't the only one. Mike Spofford did an expose' on the plays that were run. Watch and enjoy.

    I'd like to see it run even more. It was one of the things that that worked in the running game. I could easily see a play action working once other teams look at it and then respond early to get to. And I could see a screen thrown behind that wall too.

    They should run this until it doesn't work... and then run variations until they don't work and then come back to this.

    Rinse and repeat until Benson gets back.

    Because you think Saturday would run block better? I think the younger fresher EDS is best at the point of attack.

    Because you think EDS would be better at center permanently? We might find out next year if Saturday doesn't pick up his game. He seems to be in a not bad/not good spot right now.
