Earlier in the week there was a fair amount of debate regarding the Rams' final play of the game versus the Seattle Seahawks. Brian Schottenheimer came under criticism [again], this time for his play calling at the end of the game.
Zac Stacy, who had been injured on an earlier play, was brought back into the game to act as a "decoy" of sorts. Stacy went in motion and split out wide on the play, leaving no one in the backfield. The Seahawks did not have to guess whether the Rams would run or pass. They knew a pass was coming, and sent an all-out blitz at Kellen Clemens on fourth-and-goal from the 1 yard line.
Sometimes you need to be creative. Disguise your intentions from your opponent. Distract them enough to gain an edge.
Once in a while you stumble across something that drives those points home. In a recent high school game in Sherwood, Oregon, the youngsters showed how it's done. The play was a fake PAT attempt that resulted in a two-point conversion. Creativity, distraction, and disguise at it's finest. Enjoy!!!
