Short Yardage Situations


The short yardage woes are driving me insane.  I think it is a combination of losing Bobbie (he and Andre just collapse D-lines) and play calling/formations.  As much as I like Boling, he doesn't get the movement while run blocking that Bobbie does.  Bobbie and Andre work really well together in that aspect.  Some of the formations confuse me but I have a solution...

Pressley is doing a great job at fullback, but why not put Peko back there with Pressley, Benson in the middle and give yourself an option to go left or right based on the defensive alignment?  Basically a wishbone formation.  We have all seen Peko coming down hill blow up anyone who gets in his way.  If Benson can't get a yard behind Peko then we need to look at using Leonard or Peerman in those situations.  Maybe it is just my immense desire to see Peko demolish people from the fullback position, but this line was always known for its run blocking.  Alexander needs to get in their ass and getting in a power wishbone formation would be like Gruden saying "we're going to see who the better man is.  They know what is coming and we know what is coming, now who is going to win that battle for a yard."  Pride should do the rest.  No need to be fancy.  Place smash mouth football, get the yard and reset your offense on first down.
