Spaight (-0.5) is hesitant on his read and checks a gap behind him that is already covered by Brown and Ion.  Ioannidis (+3) with the FF.
Fumble.  Spaight in at Nickel for Foster, Dunbar in for Breeland.  Hood is already looking shaky.

False Start.
C20 1 15 1 1 2×2 Nickel Even PA Pass(1) OZ Bootleg Flat 16
(coverage -2) DJ (-2) suckered by PA.  Last play involved DJ screaming down the line, this was the constraint play
C36 1 10 1 3 3(tight)x1 3-4 over PA Pass(1) Go/Cross 18
(pressure -1) Compton (-1) takes a false step on play action and doesn’t have the speed to recover, a hole opens up behind him.  Brown is at the proper depth, Compton is not and is baited again by the releasing HB.  Nicholson (-1) is dropping way deep on a 2 man route.  The WR post is taken away by the CB inside leverage so all you have to worry about is one guy whose a TE and not going to burn you deep. (coverage -2)
W46 1 10 1 3 2wingx2H 3-4 even Run Split Zone 8
Kerrigan gets upfield but has McClain checking him inside.  Brown (-0.5) isn’t able to shoot underneath and fire into his gap without losing his feet.  Hood has resorted to shooting his gap, he forces cutback into McGee who slanted inside, who makes Zeke cutback to DJ (-1.5) who misses the tackle.  Compton (-1) leans into the TE block and can’t gain seperation as the RB cuts inside of him.
W38 2 2 1 1 2x2H Nickel Even PA Pass(1) PA SZ Slant/Seam 25
Hback split zone motion draws in the backers (coverage -2) Dunbar (-2) lets off a clean release and gives inside up but then gets turned around and is in bad position to stay with the WR.  DJ (-0.5) and Brown (-0.5) are not there because of play action.  Nicholson (-2) takes a horrible angle to the receiver.  Brown (-0.5) and Fuller (-0.5) both miss arm tackles.
W13 1 10 1 1 2Hx2H Nickel Even Run Split Zone 13(TD)
Smith (+0.5) wrong arms the puller Hback after checking WR release and boot.  Spaight (-1.5) bumps down a gap but can’t get position with the RT.  Brown (-2) fails to bump with Spaight, there is a pulling Hback, Spaight makes the right call here.  Line slants away from puller, and that’s all she wrote.
Touchdown.  Last play was a combo of catching us in a line slant and Brown failing to adjust his fill vs Split Zone.  25 yarder was bad coverage from Dunbar who needs to get inside leverage and use the sideline.  He gives up the inside and PA sucked up all his help.  Compton is over matched and Nicholson is taking poor angles.  Boot action on OZ is holding 2 guys but DJ got caught being aggressive vs run.

2nd time they have attacked the void left by a deep single high and Dunbar giving up the inside.  (coverage -1) Dunbar (-1) is going to have to either press or Nicholson (-0.5) get more aggressive with his coverage.
C39 1 10 1 2 2wingx2H 3-4 under Run Counter 7
Kerrigan (+0.5) fires upfield and takes the kick out man with him.  Brown (+0.5) meets the pulling TE in the backfield.  Hood and McGee hold their gaps at the line.  Anderson (+1) rocks Witten inside and constricts a gap and keeps contain.  Compton (-2) shows complete incompetence and overruns his gap and seals himself out of the play.  Fire this sonofabitch.
C46 2 3 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Over Pass(1) Go/Slant -4
Kerrigan (+2) (pressure +1) gets around his man and gets the sack. (coverage +1)
C42 3 7 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) Double In 6
(pressure -1) Spaight jumps the 2nd In, not a bad move, looks to make Dak hold onto the ball.  That opens up the first In which DJ had tight coverage on (coverage +1).  This one is on the front 4.
C48 4 1 1 1 3×1(tight) Nickel Bear Run Dive 4
Hood (-1.5) gets caved in on the double team.  DJ (-0.5) gets hooked by Witten, holy shit that’s a hold.  Spaight (-1) overplays his gap and is late to get up field.
W48 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Even Run Zone Stretch 5
Anderson (-0.5) up field and gives up a potential cut back lane.  McClain (-1) gets caved in by the double team, Brown fits on the other side but has to take on a guard one on one.  RB just dives into that pile for yards.
W43 2 5 1 2 3Wingx1 3-4 under Run Zone Stretch -1
Hood and McClain slant inside with McGee (+0.5) looping over top and taking his blocker with him.  Slant/loop combo opens up pursuit lanes for Anderson and a free run into the backfield for Compton.  Compton doesn’t do anything but at least forces a cutback into Hood (+2) and Anderson.  Hood sheds his blocker and makes the play.
W44 3 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(1) Go Inc(+5)
Galette (-2) offsides (pressure -1) (coverage +1) Norman (+1)
W39 3 1 1 1 3(stack)x1 Nickel Bear Run IZ 2
Kind of an Under look with Brown playing DE.  McGee (-1) slants inside and gets washed down the line.  Spaight (-0.5) is left to take on the RT one on one and gets sealed out.  Fuller (-1) is late filling his gap.  Stack formation forced Fuller into a run defender.
W37 1 10 1 1 2x2wingH Nickel Over PA Pass(1) PA OZ Flat 11
(coverage -2) Not sure who has the pulling H.  In man to man it’s Norman but we play cover 3 zone and they call a great play call that I guess puts Spaight on the WR?  That’s a mismatch.  We got outcoached here.  DJ had flat to the other side, so yes Spaight has WR.  And that’s on a PA run away from him.  Yikes.
W26 1 10 1 2 2x2Wing 3-4 under Run OZ 0(-10)
Anderson sets the edge, DJ (+1) is late getting in position and that might  work to his advantage as he gets penetration in his gap.  Compton (+1) helped by deepening the RB’s path as he fired into his gap and drew a holding call.  McClain (+0.5) holds the line.  Kerrigan (+0.5) with backside pursuit and takes away cutback.
W36 1 20 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Even Run Split Zone 6
Anderson (-1) up field instead of reading the sniffer.  That left Brown in a predicament as he had to cover 2 gaps because of that move.  Doesn’t matter as the front side is wide open.  Kerrigan (-1) goes up field, gives up a huge gap behind him.  Spaight (-1) reads pass, this whole defense read pass goodness.  The only pass key, besids formation was the LT drop.
W30 2 14 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Over Run IZ 3
Spaight (-0.5) bails before the play Hood (+1) gets off his block to funnel back to McClain (+1) who makes the tackle.
W27 3 11 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) WR Screen (-8)
Holding call negates a 23 yard play.  RB to the 3 man surface makes this a 4×1.  They tried to run a screen at Fuller (+1) and that draws a holding call.
W35 3 19 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) RB Dump Off 4
(pressure +1) (coverage +1)  YIPSI stunt at the line.  Nicholson (+1) with an open field tackle.  Smith (+0.5) and Ioannidis (+0.5) run the stunt along with Lanier.
FG no good.  Hood getting worked at the line, offset at times with slants.  They put our LBs in conflict with the PA OZ.  That’s an adjustment for halftime.  Dunbar with questionable coverage on Dez early in the drive.
