Redskins DEFENSE vs The Browns


Note:  A brief overview of our ‘Nickel’ and ‘3-4’ formations can be found here

Cleveland started the game in 11 (1RB, 1TE) personnel and we responded with our Nickel package which had Compton lined up to the passing strength (2 WR side):


When the Browns brought in a fullback or extra tight end we responded with our 3-4:


Notice Compton is away from the passing strength and is lined up over the guard and tackle.  The thicker and stouter Foster (aka Rumble) is lined up over the ‘A’ gap in between the center and guard.

We got a little whacky with our 3-4 alignment on this play as we slid Baker over to defensive end.  We stood up Preston Smith, moved him around and then sent him blitzin’:


we didn’t generate much pressure and I didn’t see us use this formation again.

Later on in that same drive when Cleveland got in the Red Zone, we matched up to their 11 personnel with a 3-4, something I don’t ever remember us doing:


Could this be Chris Baker winning an argument?

On a few Nickel formations before the half we lined up the lankier and faster Cravens (aka Ravage) unprotected over the bubble, while Compton lined up protected behind Baker:


They ran it right at Cravens for 13 yards; Blackmon didn’t help matters by missing his tackle.  In the 2nd half we flipped Compton and Cravens and I don’t think we lined up like that again.

Safeties:  We went one-high safety almost the whole way to match up with their heavy formations (which they deployed 37% of the time–24 out of 65 snaps.)  They stayed with an old school game plan until the 4th quarter when they had to blitzkrieg us with passes in order to catch up.

The last drive was during garbage time and was not charted.

On With The Show:

Power and Counter:  The Browns did not waste long attacking us with the Power play we struggled with last week.  On the 2nd play of their 1st drive they blocked Power up front and attached a zone read principle behind it with Pryor.  That sounds scary but our defense, led by Smith, handled it just fine:


After that the Browns threw up the white flag and, for the most part, scratched the zone read.

They tried to hit us with Power again the next drive.  Remember, Power allows you to get a double team on a defensive lineman on the side the ball is being run too.  This time they doubled Baker and removed him from the line.  That double team then worked its way up to Compton and sealed him out.  Notice how Compton has to make sure the backside is clear from danger before he can attack the play side (the side the ball is being run too.)  This extra read forces Compton to slow down and you get a nice big alley for the running back to run through:

Compton hesitated like that repeatedly.  He’s either not sure of what he’s seeing or he is being asked to do too much.  Elsewhere on that play, you can see Kerrigan crushing his block and constricting the gap.  If Baker holds up against his double, and Compton attacks the line quicker, that running back will have to bounce it outside and maybe squeeze out a couple of yards.

2 plays later Compton does not hesitate and he is in much better positon to handle the run:


Murphy destroyed both reads in the backfield before Compton was tested but the point still stands: Compton needs to think less and react more.  It would also help if the safeties filled correctly so Compton could trust them and focus on flowing to the ball.

A little bit later in this drive we sub in Reyes and the Browns double team him on back to back run plays rendering him a minor obstacle at best:

In the second half we made adjustments to better handle both the Power and Counter runs.  One adjustment was to slant the defensive line to the weak side and have Compton wrap around play side.  Here he fills in right behind Cravens:

Boom, now Compton is not scanning for the worst case scenarios all over the line.  He’s able to just go and attack a target.

Another 2nd half adjustment was Francois started to attack any offensive lineman in front of him who pulled away:

Those adjustments helped us to shut down their Power and Counter plays.  Cleveland responded by running the Outside Zone play.  They ran it 3 times in the 4th quarter for 25 yards…but 2(!) of those runs were fumbles.

Play Action:  Cleveland ran play action off of the Power run play just like the Giants did to us last week:


The Browns version:

Eh, it’s a Pinto to the Giants’ Ferrari but it still worked.  In the second half we adjusted by aligning Norman inside the wide receiver to take away the slant route.  Kessler had to make a more difficult fade/back shoulder throw instead:

I’m thinking they could have ran that slant route against a lesser corner like Dunbar or the rookie but never mind me…

So, they primarily ran 2 different run plays (Power and Counter) with play action attached to each of them and we adjusted to stop all of that by the 2nd half.  Once the Browns adjusted with outside zone runs it was getting late in the game and we were able to force multiple  turnovers to limit them to just 3 second half points and close the game out.

Francois was the lone interior defensive lineman who was able to MAKE PLAYS:

Jenkins struggled with being too aggressive versus the run.  Here he will be unblocked by the offensive lineman, they bait him into the backfield and the fullback “wham” blocks him from the side.  The running back has an open gap where Jenkins used to be:

That is something that can be coached up over this week and isn’t really a concern for me.  Reyes however, as talked about earlier, is an issue.  His technique versus double teams is lacking and he’s a liability when in the lineup.  We might just have to limit his snaps until we can bring in reinforcements for next year.

I started to give Compton +0.5’s for being in the right position.  I didn’t think that was something worth plusing but linebacking basics look hard and maybe he does deserve points for reading a play and standing where he is supposed to be, regardless of what he does or does not do after that.  Cravens is a fun guy to watch, I wouldn’t mind drafting a few more guys like him (Jabril Peppers maybe?)

Spaight got in on a couple of snaps but didn’t grade out either way, same with Ionnaidis.  That’s it for the front 7.

You guys, our safeties are really bad.  They play the run like they have an allergy to it.  Blackmon is just as bad at filling as DHall.  I get the coaching staff’s affinity for corners converted into Free Safeties–the ‘Coverage’ metric came out positive yet again–but against the run DHall and now Blackmon are huge liabilities.  Teams are beating us over the head with basic run concepts until we bleed into a coma.  Josh Norman has ten times the run defense than any of our safeties.  And then there is Brouton…I don’t know why he is even on this team.  I’m not clipping any more videos on this issue, you can read any one of the previous ‘breakdown’ posts to see what I’m talking about.  HOT TAKE:  Our number one need this offseason is a safety who will fill against the run.

What Did All That Mean:


  • Compton is being asked to do too much
  • Francois makes the best adjustments.  His Madden awareness level is easily in the 90s.
  • Reyes’ technique/strength against double teams could use a lot more work.  Teams will continue to run plays which exploit that.
  • #1 need on defense is a Safety that will fill against the run.
  • Tackling from the back 7 was ugh.  It’s a big reason why we gave up so many 3rd and longs in the 2nd half.
  • Good News:  Our outside linebacker/defensive end corps is as good as any other in the league.
  • Gameplanin’:
    • They came at us with Power and Counter.  Then added play action off of those runs.
    • We adjusted to stop all of that by the second half
    • They adjusted to outside zone runs
    • We took their ball 3 times and sent them home.

We blitz a safety and send 5 (pressure +1) QB rolls away from Kerrigan (+0.5) who rips through the c gap.  Looks like Compton has contain.  Pryor is open on a deep drag and I don’t see anyone covering underneath, oh Norman has him.  Cravens bit on the play action but recovers.  Fuller (-1) lines up outside and walls off the out route and then gets beat outside.

Oh lord this looks scary.  They run the Power play we struggled with last week and add on a Zone Read element to it with Pryor.  Baker takes on the double team.  Guard pulls and Kerrigan (+0.5) and Cravens (+0.5) fill either side of him.  RB would’ve been dead but Pryor keeps and goes weak side.  Smith (+1) and Hood (+1) pursue and Smith gets the TFL.  Compton (-0.5) got sucked in by the mesh point and failed to track the QB.

Compton lined up to the boundary and away from the 2 WR side.  That’s a different look compared to our Nickel alignment.  Kerrigan loops around Baker (-0.5) who got his forward momentum used against him.  Foster (+1) slants over to contain and sees a RB waiting for a pass.  He breaks it up. (coverage +1)

Baker (-1.5) gets doubled and removed from the line, then his double works their way up to Compton (-0.5) whose assignment I don’t understand completely.  Apparently he’s supposed to clear the weakside and then come over and help front side to where his gap originally was (to the right of the pulling guard.)  By the time he clears the playside Tackle is in his face and he gets sealed.  Kerrigan (+1) treats the tight end like a rag doll and constricts his gap.  Foster (-1) fills away from outside help.  He might technically be covering that gap but he’s got an unblocked safety to his left that he shoudl spill too.  Or Bruton was supposed to fill in where needed which makes less sense.  Either way the gap opens.  Ihenacho (+0.5) with a maybe touchdown saving tackle.
B36 1 10 1 2 Ace 2Hx2(tight) 3-4 Run(away) Counter 3
Murphy (+0.5) kinda fights off a cut block from a WR, at least it was good enough to spill the RB outside.  Compton (+0.5) doesn’t get fooled by counter action and races to the backfield but then misses a tackle…it slows down the RB at least.  Kerrigan (+0.5) comes off a block to meet Foster (-0.5) at the ball carrier.  Neither one brings him down.  Bruton (-0.5) set the edge and then watches the play transpire like he’s a fan.  Tackling, ugh.
B39 2 7 1 1 Gun 2×2 Nickel over PA Pass (1) Slant 8
Same play action slant off of Power the Giants ran on us.  Compton (-1) bites hard and the backside slant is open.  Norman (-0.5) was in his hip pocket but 6’4 is 6’4
B47 1 10 2 1 Wildcat 2x3H 3-4 Run(to) Inverted Veer -1
Murphy (+2) clears the outside run then tackles the de facto QB.  Compton (+0.5) and Foster (+0.5) fill correctly and meet the pulling guard on either side.  This play was dead.  Hood (+0.5) and Francois (+0.5) stood up to their blockers as well.
B46 2 11 1 2 Gun 2×2 3-4 split Pass (1) Out Inc
We send 5 and the QB felt ghost pressure, eh I’ll call it a wash.  Foster (+0.5) (coverage +1) is all over his man.  Nobody was open.
B46 3 11 1 1 Gun 3Hx1 Nickel okie Pass (1) Comeback 12
Cravens has the RB, Bruton the TE, Compton hook zone.  Man-Free coverage.  Pryor beats Norman straight up (-1) (coverage -1)
S42 1 10 1 2 Offset Maryland I 3-4 Run(away) Double Wham 9
Jenkins (-2) fails to see the Wham/Trap block they set him up with and he shoots into the backfield, loses balance and the RB runs right by him and into his gap.  No idea what Foster (-1) is seeing, he must be reading one of the Wham blocks and he takes himself out the play.  Compton (+0.5) makes the best out of a crap situation and slows down the RB by spilling him to help.
S33 2 1 2 2 I-Form 2×1(Tight) 3-4 Run(away) Power G 4
Reyes (-1) gets removed by a double.  Bruton (-1) fills and falls.

Reyes (-1.5) gets moved by a double.  Cravens (-1) fills correctly but fails to tackle.  Compton (+0.5) went to the right hole.
S18 1 10 1 1 Gun 2×2 3-4 PA Pass (1) Back Shoulder 13
Nothing Dunbar could have done here.  Just a perfectly executed back shoulder throw.  Of note: we ran a 3-4 vs 11 personnel.  Is that Chris Baker winning an argument?
S5 1 G 2 2 I-Form 2×1(Tight) 3-4 Run(to) Power G 2
Foster (+0.5) sets the edge vs a kickout from the FB.  Smith (+1.5) kinda gets off a block and constricts the gap the RB is trying to run into which creates a pile.  Dunbar (+0.5) and Compton (+0.5) fill on either side of the pulling guard.  Dunbar cleans up.  Compton shed a OL block.

Cravens and Bruton lined up over the RB and TE.  Looks like man free coverage.  Compton lined up deep in the hook zone.  Compton (+1) (coverage +1) guesses correct and forces the QB to pump fake.  Compton tries to recover but the TE has him beat to the inside.  Bruton and Cravens were on inside/outside coverage respectively.  No pass rush (pressure -1) is the real reason this play works.  Compton did his job to stall the play and the pressure never cleaned up.

S40 2 16 1 1 Gun 2×2 Nickel Okie Pass (1) Cross 7
Man free.  Miscommunication between Fuller who blitzes and Compton (coverage -1) who doesn’t cover his underneath zone.  Compton looked to be tracking the RB but nobody has that zone if he’s in man.  Looks to be a coverage bust on Fuller or Compton.  I’m guessing Compton although Fuller is the new guy.  Who knows.

Compton (+0.5) with a good drop to split the difference between the 2 In routes he’s defending.  Blackmon (-1) (coverage -1) slips and falls.  His robber zone is vacated.  Compton doesn’t have the speed to run this play down.  Compton may have taken a questionable angle on his drop but if Blackmon doesn’t fall then this play is dead.

I’ll need to rewatch this one from the coaches film angle:  rush 6, it looks like Man free but then it morphs into zone…I think. (coverage -1)  It looks like Nacho (-1) plays zone instead of man on TE.  It looks like Toler comes off his man either to play zone underneath or because he saw the throw coming.  Which means it was man and Nacho screwed up.  He’s covering dirt regardless.
