Power Spread Football with Drew Pagliari

Power Spread Football with Drew Pagliari

By Power Spread
A keen take on the current evolution of the game of Football - both culturally as well as schematically. Power Spread Football overtook the College game in the 2000s and broke through in the more stagnant NFL arena in the 2010s. As with the rest of the world, there will be plenty of fireworks to come in the world of football in the 2020s.

2022 NFL Draft - Star Mindset vs Team Mindset
The draft is a lot about future potential stars of the game or current stars traded in draft deals. As we move forward in this PS Era of Football, organizations would be wise to shift their priorities from the Star Mindset to Team as they deal with future unpredictability with Injuries and a shifting landscape involving Team Morale and the overall Economic Structure. I take a quick look at the Jets celebrated first day of the Draft as it pertains to a favorite player of mine, Garrett Wilson. As well as the trade made by the Eagles as they start to think with more of that Team Mindset from their QB position. Also the situation in Baltimore with WRs leaving, possibly due to all the running by Lamar Jackson.

Final Four Quick Take - 4 Teams with a lot of Culture behind them and the Emotions involved
Kansas and North Carolina hearken all the way back to the roots of Basketball and its creator - James Naismith Duke cemented its legacy shortly after and Villanova even more recently, but all 4 of these Teams are big time Programs with a lot of Culture behind them. The Emotions with everyone and the possible outcomes. A little Meditation on what we are about to witness tonight and its effect on all involved.

College Basketball Final Four
BASKETBALL + FOOTBALL = POWER SPREAD My first Podcast on Basketball as it compares to Football and first podcast from NYC!         Am I sticking with my original F4 or making a switch (2nd Half of Podcast) HELTER SKELTER IS EXTREME POWER SPREAD BASKETBALL Basketball has more elements of feel, rhythm + chaos than the more ordered sport of Football. Thus the term Helter Skelter that I use for Basketball. It's not pure chaos, but using the chaos to find your order. POWER OF CHAOS from Powerspread.net https://powerspread.net/2019/02/02/the-power-of-chaos-part-1-championship-sunday-pt-1/ https://powerspread.net/2019/02/02/the-power-of-chaos-part-1-championship-sunday-pt2/ NEW POWER SPREAD DEFENSES IN BASKETBALL & FOOTBALL = AGGRESSIVE GAP + PATTERN MATCH The new style Gap Defenses that work to balance the aggression of Press Defense + Switching that limit outside shooting, while still continuing the Pack & Trap schemes that limit easy baskets in the paint. Not much different than the Pattern Matching in Football. Finding the Space Coverage based on Personnel + Scheme. ORIGINAL GAP D from Jeff Van Gundy...? https://pickandpop.net/2016/09/jeff-van-gundy-defensive-system-edit/ MY BRACKET BUSTERS (sort of) My Bracket - half correct - Kansas vs Villanova.  Other half is dead (Gonzaga,Purdue).  Am I switching picks, playing the gap or packing middle?  Staying with Gonzaga (Duke) over Nova - hedging to Duke over KU or sliding over to a wacky finish for a wacky MM...        ...NC vs KU Final...?

2022 Championship Sunday - Current Pick: Rams Bengals .. will it change again?
It took some time, but Stafford is finally in sync with McVay's Gillman Pro PS and the talent in the system.  ---Stafford with Caldwell at Detroit - who coached under Tom Moore's Gillman Pass Spread. ---How can I pick against Shanahan 3 games in a row. If I do, I deserve 0-3! KC Letdown could be real - best team doesn't always win, but... ---Burrow is NOT good with too much pressure - slow to read defenses. ------Spagnuolo may bring the heat. ------Will KC DBs be able to keep on those WRs? ------Need to run Mixon - Power + Spread! Hard to pick against KC, but I still am for now. Leaning towards the Rams now. Either way I expect 2 more whacky games. Or at least close games.

2022 NFL Divisional Playoff Review - Chiefs over Bills: 3rd Quarter
3RD QUARTER NOTES DRIVE 1 1ST DRIVE 13 Plays 8 minutes - FOR ONLY A FG!  KC would still be driving for a TD if not for Holding Penalty. Reid starts out with an Aggressive mix of Power and Misdirection/PlayAction Spread. Bills have a good Coverage mix but still not bringing much blitz or mix up front. Take a break... REST OF QUARTER BILLS OFFENSE - A little conservative 1st Drive, but big time set up for 75 yd TD Pass! Daboll masterful calling a game. KC OFFENSE - Got a bit a way from the Power + Spread. Mahomes in Dropback mode too often. Partially because of Bills conservative D and Cover 1 Man Under. Still, they had 2 more RPOs + a Reverse and some Power. MORE! PLAYERS NEED A PLAN BILLS DEFENSE - Bills are now bringing down a Safety - moving from Cover 2 to Cover 1 w/ a Robber. More aggressive and continued coverage mix confusing Mahomes, but only 1 AGap LB blitz. Again, not enough mix up front and PLEASE...GET A SPY ON MAHOMES! KC DEFENSE - Spagnuolo also bringing down a safety. Mixing in the back, but not as effectively as the Bills with their MU Zone and incredible technique. PLAYERS NEED TO PLAY ATTITUDE TALENT PREPARATION DLineman - #55 Hughes and Clark + Oliver and Bill's DBs/LBs in Pass Coverage playing fantastic. The RBs are running hard. KC WRs executing in an intricate scheme. Mahomes and Allen = Dynamic PS QBs. MOVE BY HARDMAN ON TD ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL! ONE ISSUE Mahomes still having some confusion on the Bills Coverage Mix, but runs well to make up for it. Mahomes still better at Improvisation than pocket passing!

2022 NFL Divisional Playoff Review - Chiefs over Bills: Halftime Report
College Pure PS = more simple.            More efficient? Can it be done in the NFL?           Reid and Daboll Offenses can be brilliant.           McDermott/Frazier Match Up Zone Bracket. #55 - Confused Clark & Hughes last Podcast           Both are wrecking havoc! Defenses Conservative, but mixing Coverage.           Bills MU Zone Bracket           Spags - Where's the Beef?? Offenses strong for the most part.            KC a little conservative to start.            Daboll a little conservative 2nd Qtr.

2022 NFL Divisional Playoff Review - Chiefs over Bills: 2nd Quarter
One more long TD Drive Chiefs. 1 2m Drive each. Chiefs missed FG. Bills TD to tie 14-14 at Half. Defenses a little more aggressive. Each did a Full House Cover 0 Blitz near Goaline, but too little too late. KC Offense picked it up w/ more aggression this Quarter! Incredible Misdirection - Play Action. Personnel Packages. Bills Daboll backed off a bit for a series or two, but setting up for more aggression late this Quarter and in 2nd Half.

2022 NFL Divisional Playoff Review - Bengals over Titans : Halftime Report
DEFENSE! Bengals not supposed to stop run - adjustments!  Titans not supposed to blitz - adjustments!       -Mix Back AND Front both Defenses!               -Called it about Anarumo’s Flexibility.               -Didn’t call Vrabel for aggression!       Said the bengals would need to go vertical -        I didn’t realize how agg the D would play OFFENSE? Need to keep Power PA/MD mix-  Tannehill not Pass Spread guy       -Use Henry as Decoy..?       -Mix Spread Runs - Tannehill’s legs + WRs       -Run Hilliard? Keep taking Deep Shots if Bengals keying on run       -Short passes to set it up       -Screen passes set up packaged plays Burrow - needs power to help his Spread       Verts + Short. Forget Midrange to start.       Get off Primary and/or get rid of ball Not Easy on Young QB or in the case of Tannehill -  a limited QB...

2022 NFL Divisional Playoff Review - Bengals over Titans : 1st Half
ANARUMO DEFENSE AGGRESSIVE MIX - Cover 3 Robber + Quarters.  Most Aggressive use of Safeties in the NFL..? GAMEPLAN FLEXIBILITY - Did it all year (Lamar Jackson and the Ravens). Finally a team using a power heavy alignment vs Henry! 6-2/5-3 Defense hearkening back to the days of yore.  TENNESSEE PUNTER BRET KERN'S KNUCKLEBALL PUNTS TITANS O - Need Henry to Set up PlayAction + Misdirection along with Tannehill’s legs and arm. Tannehill is not a pure pass spread guy. BENGALS OFFENSE -  Burrow slow reads = Sacks.                                    Not enough Power Mix. TITANS DEFENSE   AGGRESSIVE MIX!  SURPRISED!                               Bowen's background.                               Vrabel being aggressive!

2022 Championship Sunday - Early Pick: SanFrancisco Cincinnati
Seriously? Yeah. Magic for Cincy. Letdown for KC.  SanFran solid in 3 phases of the game. Rams more inconsistent.  3 for 3 for the more experienced 49ers. A Bengal nightmare.  Stay tuned to see if my picks change by the end of the week!

Post Game Commentary - Chiefs over Bills: Fair play - Tony Romo makes a lot of good calls too!
To be fair, Tony makes a lot of good calls throughout every game he works. I list a few of them in this quick episode. I don’t understand the double coverage obsession or what you’re seeing but it’s all good and I enjoy your work! 👊

Live Commentary - Bills at Chiefs: No Double Coverage, Romo!
Romo is obsessed with double coverage on Hill and Kelce and constantly calling out dc when it's not there. It's a DC ghost he's seeing.  In this case it's a matchup zone. The defense is manning up on receivers in their zone and passing them off when they leave their zone and others come into their zone. It may look like man coverage, but it's deceptive. It's certainly not double coverage, but players of course are aware of where these top receivers are on the field. This is not too different from what Todd Bowles did to KC in last year's Super Bowl with a Matchup Zone Gap Defense. I will review all of this on video during the off week after the Championship Games.
