Opponents's playbook

December 20, 1998|By Mike Preston

The formation: I-formation, pro right.

Action: At the snap, the offensive linemen lock into their pass-protection sets. Fullback Ty Hallock (49) leads through the hole and running back James Allen (20) fakes taking a handoff from quarterback Steve Stenstrom on a play-action fake. Tight end Alonzo Mayes (85) runs a 10-yard pattern and cuts across the middle. Both outside receivers run stutter-step routes to freeze the cornerbacks, then try to jet by them on go routes.

Stenstrom can throw to flanker Curtis Conway (80), wide right, or split end Bobby Engram (81), on the left.
