PA Pass v. Run
4 PA passes, 3-4 for 36 yards.
Showed his Bull rush vs OSU, in the 1st showed his swim move repeatedly getting underneath the tackle cleanly. Mack pressured the QB twice, with one leading to an interception. Mack also met Coker in the backfield twice, notching another tackle for a loss.
10-15 yard zone:
Stony went 3 for 4 for 36 yards in the 10-15 yard zone. The only miss was a drop. One was thrown left, two right and the dropped pass was on a drag route over the middle.
Buffalo 3 - Stony Brook 0
Strategy: Pound the ball with BO and then open it up with Neutz deep downfield.
What went wrong: BO is sidelined, Neutz a focus of Stony Brook's defense
What went right: Lee stepped up and had a great first half.
Strategy: Stop Coker with traditional 3-4 front and zone coverage. SB doesn't stretch teams out, so no need for creative gameplanning on defense.
What went wrong: Stony play action passed, the zone has a hole in it 10-12 yards downfield
What went right: Khalil Mack had another impressive quarter, causing an INT, hurrying the QB and making two big hits on Coker the LB..
After 1 quarter adjustments:
1) Cover 2, bump the wideouts giving Mack more time to get to the QB because he's been close. After releasing, the corners need to zone drop to 8-10 yards to take away the easy 12 yard reception. Also keep sending Mack as his pressure led to an interception.
2) Remove PA pass and read option from the playbook and give Potts more carries running left.
3) Stony is keying on Neutz downfield, use Neutz in the short passing game, (but not bubble screens) and target Lee downfield in the area's vacated by defenders marking Neutz.
