Disguising late key for Bills ‘D’

Posted by Chris Brown on December 4, 2014 – 5:07 pm

Every defense in the NFL employs disguises for their intended coverages pre-snap in the hopes of crossing up the opposing quarterback. Some QBs are easier to fool than others. Denver’s Peyton Manning is one of the tougher nuts to crack, but after seeing some previous opponents of the Broncos succeed, Buffalo may take a stab at it as well.

Bills S Aaron Williams was encouraged by the success the St. Louis Rams had in disguising their coverages late in the pre-snap process. It’s playing with fire a bit because you do want to be set for the play, but it worked for them. Could it work for the Bills?

“St. Louis did a great job of disguising and moving around,” said Williams. “I feel like that’s one of the things we’re getting better at. The last few weeks, Searcy and I, Duke, we’ve done a lot better job of communicating and to move around so a quarterback won’t know what we’re in right as we break the huddle. As long as we move around and have our disguise not kill us, as long as we get to the spot, we’ll be fine.”
