Drive by Navy

Against Notre Dame, Navy showed patience and persistence in a really solid drive. I liked the counter option at 1:30 - our version will have a little motion preceding. I also like what they're doing with their ends, often lining them up about two or three yards off the tackles. That is just wide enough to force the #2 man to line up inside of them, but tight enough to block him for toss sweeps. And they have great leverage on the #3 man for the option plays.

Navy was helped out by a facemask penalty late in the drive, but it was still a pretty solid set of plays.

I can't believe that I've just written that, but there it is. All the cool kids are doing it, so I guess I will too. There's a link down to the right.
