stuffed at the goal line

These three plays were interesting to dissect.

Setup: Eifert's just been interfered with on a corner pass, so it's 1st & goal ND at the 2.

PLAY 1: INSIDE ZONE

Eifert motions into the formation. This is just regular zone blocking, and Riddick picks the hole to the right. He just barely misses getting the ball over the goal line before his knee hits.

PLAY 2: POWER LEFT

Our bread and butter power play. We motion Eifert inside again to set him up as a FB. Golic pulls left into the hole.

#25 Hendricks comes off the edge from the backside and gets a piece of Riddick from behind. If that hadn't happened I think Riddick may have squeaked in.

Here's the overhead view.

PLAY 3: POWER LEFT (AGAIN)

We run power again, with Eifert motioning in and Golic pulling.

This time #44 LB Gordon was on a called run blitz. You see him jump to the line presnap, and shoot the gap that Eifert vacates. I remember blaming Golic for not pulling fast enough on this one, but in retrospect I think it was a poor recognition by Eifert (or another lineman, or Golson) that Gordon was blitzing. Golic really never had a shot at him. They should have picked it up presnap.
