Why is an I-formation back not a receiving threat?


I don't think I agree with Pat Kirwan here at all, unless you have more context for that quote. Anyone who watched LaDainian Tomlinson play knows that a running back in the I formation is a capable receiver. The Chargers used the I formation and standard Shotgun almost exclusively, and very frequently ran play-action passes where the RB is a significant target.

I would guess his comments are primarily along the lines related to the latter reasons from your question, though; the I form is certainly not a formation for a regular passing play to the RB, given the RB has only two or three seconds to get significantly downfield in a non-play action passing play; given his position far behind the line (4-5 yards back) and centered (so another 3-4 yards at least from the outside of the tackle box), it's not a great position to go downfield from. Halfback screens and play action passes work well here, but regular routes don't.

It's also simply not a formation commonly used by...

Module 7

The Lesson

The module learning objectives:
Understand the concept of an Information (electronic) Pearl Harbor. Understand loss of sanctuary.

Historical Review

What was Pearl Harbor? A strike at the heart of America.

Why Pearl Harbor? Japan wanted to eliminate the US's ability to project power in the Pacific.

How do countries today project power?

Politically Economically Military option removed

Another Consideration

Why are Third World nations so desperately seeking weapons of mass destruction (WMD)?

Many nations do not have the resources to maintain a powerful military force. WMDs, such as nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons present an economically viable alternative for security.

What was wrong with Japan's WWII strategy and recent efforts by Third World nations? Pearl Harbor ensured...

I'm Confused, Can Anyone Help Me?

By Neil Clark

April 16, 2014 "ICH" - "RT" - I'm confused. A few weeks ago we were told in the West that people occupying government buildings in Ukraine was a very good thing. These people, we were told by our political leaders and elite media commentators, were 'pro-democracy protestors'.

The US government warned the Ukrainian authorities against using force against these 'pro-democracy protestors' even if, according to the pictures we saw, some of them were neo-Nazis who were throwing Molotov cocktails and other things at the police and smashing up statues and setting fire to buildings.

Now, just a few weeks later, we're told that people occupying government buildings in Ukraine are not 'pro-democracy protestors' but 'terrorists' or 'militants'.

Why was the occupation of government buildings in Ukraine a very good thing...

We're creating a positive news network. We need your help.

When speaking about big and powerful pharmaceutical companies, one of the first things that should come to mind is scientific fraud, instances of which emerge with alarming frequency. A recent corruption leak, for example, was exposed from a study that was published in the British Medical Journal by researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen. The study showed that pharmaceutical companies were not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials. This particular study dealt with antidepressants, exposing multiple dangers associated with these drugs. (source)

(You can read more about that particular study here.)

This type of fraud is quite common, health professionals are well aware of it. Two years ago, Dr. Richard Horton, the current Editor-In-Chief of one of the most reputable reviewed medical journals in the world, published a letter stating that “the case against...

This Sunday is Earth Day, and while it's a time to celebrate our planet, it's also a prime opportunity to take a closer look at the serious environmental issues we're facing and the solutions that need to be put in place to alleviate them. Ignorance may be bliss, but it's getting increasingly difficult to ignore the damage we've done to the environment, especially when the effects have been hitting so close to home. If you want to make this Earth Day an opportunity to educate yourself about the problems, read on as we break down the 7 biggest environmental threats facing our society right now and how we might be able to solve them before it's too late.

Climate Change

Climate change is first and foremost an issue because people can’t even agree on whether or not it’s an issue in the first place. Before we even get into the solutions, we all (regardless of political party) need to come to the realization that yes, climate change is real and yes, it is affecting...

This document describes the functionality and basic configuration of the Threat Detection feature of the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA). Threat Detection provides firewall administrators with the necessary tools to identify, understand, and stop attacks before they reach the internal network infrastructure. In order to do so, the feature relies on a number of different triggers and statistics, which is described in further detail in these sections.

Threat Detection can be used on any ASA firewall that runs a software version of 8.0(2) or later. Although threat detection is not a substitute for a dedicated IDS/IPS solution, it can be used in environments where an IPS is not available to provide an added layer of protection to the core functionality of ASA.

Threat Detection Functionality

The threat detection feature has three main components:

Is science a threat to humanity? | Debate.org

I strongly agree. Our lives are in danger because bombs are made to blast thousands or millions of people. New guns are made for robbery. People are rebelling against their own blood, and it's not fair. This all is done by the cruel advancement of science. Can you believe science has increased the capability of men to kill each other?


Where will it stop?

Although I understand the view that science has brought us many benefits, I think people often forget its consequences. It has enabled countries to create terrifying Weapons of Mass Destruction, has caused numerous ethical questions to be raised and is a constant threat to humanity with the danger that it may never stop, and we will become our own worst enemy. Even some of science's greatest achievements like the discovery of antibiotics has caused massive implications through the uncontrollable population increase. For these reasons and...

The seven biggest environmental threats to the Earth are issues every person should understand and take action to see that these threats are eventually eliminated.

Seven Biggest Environmental Threats

Examining the various threats to the Earth's environment must include the human impact on the planet. Catch phrases such as carbon footprint, global warming, deforestation, and other commonly used terms have become the everyday jargon for those concerned about the environment.

1. Human Population and Pollution

A growing world population might seem like an obvious threat to the environment that goes far beyond the debatable theory of global warming. The bigger threat is far more complex and directly linked not to the controversial idea of a carbon footprint, but to the unique system of supply and demand.

Consumers place more and more demands on the earth's natural resources as the population increases year after year. These demands leave...

Donald David Coryell (October 17, 1924 – July 1, 2010) was an American football coach, who coached in the NFL first with the St. Louis Cardinals from 1973 to 1977 and then the San Diego Chargers from 1978 to 1986. He was well known for his innovations to football's passing offense. Coryell's offense was commonly known as "Air Coryell". Coryell was the first coach ever to win more than 100 games at both the collegiate and professional level. He was inducted into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame in 1986. Coryell is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. The Professional Football Researchers Association named Coryell to the PRFA Hall of Very Good Class of 2010 [2]

Exploiting matchups is key in fantasy and can help us unearth sleepers, value plays and also alert us to when we should fade or lower expectations for more establish studs. There are a number of statistics and data-based tools to helps us decipher which matchups to exploit and which to avoid, and one of which is the NFL's Next Gen Stats package -- not just the fancy speed numbers you see on television.

Here we'll look where cornerbacks and wide receivers line up, which defenses are particularly susceptible to which player packages and so much more in order to find value with our fantasy players. As the season goes along we'll have even more data to use and a better understanding of the Next Gen Stats. Here are the top matchups that could bring value in Week 5.

The mission of this column is to recap the weekend in the SEC with an analytical bent, so here’s some hard-hitting professional analysis: Alabama is good. Like, really good. Like, across-the-board, impervious-to-pain, frighten-the-children good. In every phase this team is on pace to fulfill its terrifying potential.

What else is left to say? On Saturday the Crimson Tide stuffed another quality opponent into burlap sack and tossed it into a river, never to be heard from again. The 39-point margin of victory over Tennessee was the most lopsided in the series in 110 years. In four games against ranked teams this year, the Tide have won by an average of 27 points. In the two major polls this week they earned 121 of a possible 125 first-place votes. In a crowded field of contenders they’re No. 1 by a mile.

This is not exactly revelatory stuff. At a certain point, writing about Bama’s complete and utter dominance under Nick Saban is about as exciting as writing about the...

“They are looking for chunk plays. You want to make them drive it through. They do; they are very methodical. They manage their down and distances really well, and they stay ahead of chains, it makes them tough to stop. So every time you try to give them a negative play or do something to put them behind the chains, you put yourself at risk. They know it’s a numbers game…The key is being sound, tackling and not giving up big plays, and that’s what our goal is, to do that.”

Kirby Smart explained some fundamental concepts of the option offense on Monday, and it’s no secret that the offense can generate a big gain on the ground on just about any play if just one defensive assignment is missed. We’ve all seen the pound-pound-pound-pound-BAM of several short dive plays followed by a devastating pitch for 60 yards when the defense cheats inside against the dive.

Last week against Virginia, Tech had 29 rushing attempts that went for a total of 72 yards. But they had two...
