is on the Seattle Seahawks chopping block.Following Wednesday’s report that Carlisle Rashaad Penny Color Rush Jersey , the team’s longtime head strength and conditioning coach, would not return for the 2019 season, it’s since been reported that his assistants are also gone, as is head trainer Donald Rich.Curtis Crabtree wrote on Thursday that in addition to Carlisle, assistant S&C coaches Mondray Gee and Jamie Yanchar are out. Gee was with the Green Bay Packers and brought on by GM John Schneider in 2010, while both Carlisle and Yanchar have been with Carroll dating back to Pete’s days at USC.The most tenured staff member is actually Donald Rich, who’s been with Seattle since the Mike Holmgren era, including on the NFC Championship winning 2005 squad. He was an assistant athletic trainer back then, but was promoted to head trainer in 2012. Now he joins Carlisle, Gee, and Yanchar in the unemployment line, as the Seahawks overhaul that aspect of the staff. Saturday night in at the Los Angeles Coliseum it was a showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys Doug Baldwin Color Rush Jersey , with the victor getting the opportunity to advance to the NFC Championship Game against the victor of Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints. The Rams brought their high powered offense to the game to take on the Cowboys stout defense, a defense that just a week before had stymied the running game of the Seattle Seahawks by consistently beating the Hawks up front. While the Hawks could never get their ground game going, finishing their Wild Card appearance with just 73 rushing yards, the Rams ran wild on the Dallas defense. L.A. put up nearly four times as many rushing yards as the Hawks had in the previous week, tallying up 273 rushing yards against what had been a top five defense against the run. In any case, that brings up the question about what was so different between the two games that led to the stark contrast in performances? Obviously, as in any such explanation, there are a myriad of variables that come into play for analysis, but the simple version is that the Cowboys stacked the box to stop the run more against Seattle than they did against the Rams. I won’t waste too much time explaining the data, as it seems easier to simply lay the data out to be looked at. So, here are the rushing attempts by the Seahawks running backs against Dallas in the Wild Card game with the yards gained and the number of defenders in the box.

J. Prosise Color Rush Jersey , as others have shown elsewhere, the best way to generate a consistently good running game is to run into lighter boxes, and that is what the Rams offense does. Sean McVay and company spent the regular season fostering an offense that gets receivers open and creates the threat of scoring from anywhere on the field on any play. That means that defenses have to respect that, because while only barely ten percent of all running plays result in a gain of ten or more yards, when it comes to the passing game, 27.43% (5,199 of 18,953 plays) of all passing plays in the NFL in 2018 went for ten or more yards. In short, the Rams spent the 2018 season establishing the pass, and the Dallas defense was more concerned about stopping the pass than it was about stopping the run.
