One thing I have noticed this year is that each game seems schemed different than the last. It just seems that our coaching staff have definitive goals set on how to approach each opponent and that these were practiced all week to prepare for the game. For example, versus NO, they blitzed less and tried to cover more. Then next week versus Minnesota, the blitzes were heavy and they definitely focused on controlling AP. For Washington, they ran the ball and utilized Calvin as a decoy.
So I'm just wondering a few things. Does anyone else notice this difference? Or is it because I just notice this since the games are so fresh in my mind? I don't remember seeing any different type of play calling or adjustments from game to game during the Marinelli regime. You would hear how they wanted to run the ball and stop the run. That's it. But Schwartz really talks like he had a unique plan, which an astute fan can decipher during the game. However, it could be just a total difference in talent, thereby making the different game schemes more prevalent this year than years past.
What do you all see out there in regards to this?
