Ironically that is exactly what the Panthers did to us. Loved it.Originally Posted by GameTime

we have to pass to set up the run. Keep passing until they unload the box, and THEN call a run play...
Eli Manning knows how phones and football go together
Yeah I like the idea of passing on 1st down to set up the 2nd down and short, that's far more manageable than 3rd and long by going run 1st and 2nd down with no yards gained. If the pass is incomplete on 1st down it's still the same as not getting any on 1st down run play which has less chance of gaining yardage.
I would think the play action would be more effective on 2nd and short than 1st and 10 like Gilbride does and resulting in a sack and a 15 yard loss.
But with our luck I'm sure Gilbride will call 1st and 2nd down run plays on the first series.

Lol I know there isn't some Yuc fan over here talking trash. Eli's not Cam Newton buddy... go head and put eight in the box and dare Eli to beat you. That's what we want you to do.
Why would any team bother to put eight in the box to stop our run as if it deserves that kind of respect?
