“Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1
its meaning changes by formation, personnel package & down and distance multiple times per game.....it also changes by syllable
watch a Packer game and listen for 3-19
they use 3-19 as the Giants and Saints use Omaha
it is not as it seems to be from a spectator standpoint
In the beginning of the game last week, Eli was motioning that he couldn't hear the play call. The announcers assumed his radio wasn't working. Then the sideline reporter chimed in a few plays later saying that the radio was working fine but they had to turn the volume up.
Incidentally on the one play that Eli clearly didn't get a play from the sideline, he stepped to the line of scrimmage and called a shotgun draw. Hilarious.
They might modify it game- to-game to include/exclude "set" and "hut" in a panic/hurry snap situation.
It's not the "how" they use this that bothers me (as you say every team does it in their own way) - but it's the amount of times they use it in a game that is alarming. Renders useless whatever the snap count they determined inside the huddle.
2) Agreed - whenever this offense is rolling along, everyone's all line up with about 7-9 seconds on the clock.
3) Usually happens when ^^^ - time left to work with.
I think it was as early as the first drive that Eli had his hands up in the universal sign for "WTF" towards the sideline. Maybe we try scripting the first 12-15 plays, **** that's 4-5 drives worth of plays!!

you guys clearly don't understand key words ......and I really don't care to sit here and explain how they work to you
Omaha is a part of Eli....as well as many other QBs in the leagues cadence
like I said go watch some Packer highlights ....on every single snap you will here ....and I quote
"3-19, 3-19 "
two times in a row.....every single snap
Giants break out of the huddle late compared to other teams. For a scheme that influences sight adjustments, I don't get what's beneficial about breaking so late, unless they think they're gaining an edge by not showing their look until the latest possible moment (and preventing the D from making adjustments).
Maybe this is Gilbride/Coughlin's thinking, and they care less about the snap count and Omahas.
IMO, a mix would be nice. Mix of tempo, snap counts, show your hand early, don't show your hand early, a game of cat and mouse.
