Inside The Bills

Zone read ins and outs

Posted by Chris Brown on January 30, 2013 – 10:17 am

As we covered on Buffalobills.com today, the Bills new defensive staff stands a good chance of having viable answers to stopping the zone read quarterbacks that are taking over the NFL. One of them obviously is playing Sunday in the Super Bowl in Colin Kaepernick, and his team’s scheme was dissected well by National Football Post.

Former NFL safety Matt Bowen does a good job of explaining the elements of the 49ers Pistol offense with Kaepernick and provides visuals of why it’s tough to defend.

Fortunately the Bills have defensive assistants under Pettine that have been defending similar types of offensive schemes in the college ranks the past seven years. That should equip Buffalo’s defensive staff with¬†practical solutions in defending it that should make the Bills defense more effective than they were against such quarterbacks last season (See: Russell Wilson).
