• On Martavis Bryant's 5-yard score early during the second quarter, Bryant lined up as a single receiver to the left but close to the line of scrimmage, which typically indicates a fade pattern. With cornerback Josh Gordy anticipating the fade, he gave Bryant an inside release where the slant was wide open for the score.

Do you think roly poly reads this site?

And of course, watching the game again last night...didn't note whether it was the same DB, but on Bryant's 2nd TD, DB seemed to trying to prevent him from getting inside....fade for the score!!

You really think film analysts won't pick up what Kaboly revealed?

Besides, the Steelers can just change the hand signal now- it's not that hard to do.

In fact...I am sure they change that stuff up regularly.

I give Haley credit for using deception in his formations.

Did I read that correctly? McCullers only played 4 snaps? Seemed like he was on the field more than that.

I remember reading something (its been years) where Hines Ward stated the cheats knew the hand signals of the defense when they played the AFCCG. Is there any truth to that?

The height of Spygate. I'm pretty sure those were the coaches hand signals coming from the sideline.


High school teams change their on field hand signals regularly. I'm sure that the pros are even more pre-emptive. Change from series to series, play to play. Same signal means something different for each play call. It really wouldn't be that difficult. NFL teams aren't relying on a media head to decipher their opponents game plan.

He means to say left side of the formation but close to the OT/ball... not spread out wide.

Quote:
• The Steelers continued to go with two sets of receivers: Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore along with Brown, Martavis Bryant and Darrius Heyward-Bey. The grouping of Brown, Bryant and Heyward-Bey was on the field for 23 times and Brown, Wheaton and Moore 22 times. When the Steelers went to a two-receiver set, Brown paired with Wheaton and Bryant eight times each. The Steelers used one wide receiver 15 times.


Interesting division of labor. In his second week of action, Bryant had (narrowly) the second-highest snap total among the WRs. I hope that trend continues.

That was what I figured it must have meant since "near the line of scrimmage" doesn't really convey any meaning, especially when as the only receiver on that side of the formation he would have need to have been lined up on the line of scrimmage by rule.
