This defense banks on play callers being impatient.


As in, they won't run it 40 times because that's boring. So the one time they try play-action and nothing is there, maybe your rush gets home for a negative play.

This is the evolution of defense right now. Arkansas basically plays "Drop 8" all the time. The NFL defense en vogue is the 2-high safety look from the Rams, which is now being run by 1/3 of the league (Chargers, Packers, Bears, Broncos, among others). Teams are showing pre-snap looks to invite the run because they don't want teams to pass the ball.

It's a fascinating deal. Defensive coordinators are essentially removing the ability to attack downfield and daring teams to nickel and dime them underneath.
