The Colts Authority:
The Detroit Lions have a horrific run defense yet are in the top 6 in overall scoring defense. Bleacher Report breaks down some game tape to explain how a team can be so bad against the run yet so very effective overall.Sounds like the 2005 Colts right? You bet! Read this passage and substitute the word "Sanders" for "Delmas" for a little fun:
To make matters worse, the Broncos have a pulling guard AND a fullback leading the charge through the enormous hole. Surely, tailback Willis McGahee is about to bust a long gainer, right?
Wrong. Louis Delmas, sensing a strong-side run from the get-go, has cheated up so far that he's in front of the linebackers, just two yards from the line of scrimmage—and right in front of the gap the Broncos will attack. When the hole opens, Delmas cuts the fullback low, flipping him clean over Delmas's back. Andre Levy engages the guard and stands him up, as the left tackle peels off of Hill to block Tulloch.
