    Most effective play last year?

    I'm writing an NFC West preview for a small paper in Atlanta and I was wondering if you guys could help me out. What do you think the most effective play was last year, and what are the basic mechanics of how it works? Any help you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.

    It was called 'stopping the run'. We must've only called it once or twice that whole season, but gee, it will work wonders if we put it into play this season.

    Re: Most effective play last year?

    The TWO most effective plays for the Rams offense are:

    1. Sweep /Screen pass to Jackson. Rams ran it a ton because teams were falling back into coverage against Bruce, Holt and Curtis.

    2. Sideline out route. Bruce and Holt are absolutely rock solid at catching them and it is Bulger's strength to throw to a position on the field like that.

    Both plays were run in variations about 6-8x per game each. The key to opening them both up were Holt and Curtis running deep routes semi-routinely even if they never saw the ball more than once or twice per game. Means the safeties can't cheat up without repercussions.

    The emphasis on Bulger "checking down" and getting the ball to Jackson on passing plays where Bruce and Holt couldn't get any seperation really helped to keep a lot of drives alive.

    Definitly the under throws to Jackson. He'd run a little 5 yd turn around and be open generally all the time. This was obviously the most effective play considering it was used just about every third play of each game. It's the reason Jackson had 90 receptions last year!
