Michael Thomas rises above the defensive meltdown Michael Thomaswas one of the few bright spots in the defensive debacle we witnessed on Sunday; setting the franchise record for most receptions in a single game with 16.He was consistently able to get open either by play design or by using his elite route running.He was able to find success outside and in the slot where nine of his receptions came from. Here’s a breakdown of the types of routes he ran.Michael Thomas 16 rec. vs TB 9/09DOWN & DISTANCEROUTERESULTDOWN & DISTANCEROUTERESULT*Brees flushed from pocket. Thomas runs towards LOS. Bold= Thomas in slot/inside receiverThe TapeHis longest reception of the day came at the end of the 1st quarter. The Saints have a 1st and 10 and line up in 20 personnel New Orleans Saints Kaden Elliss Jersey , with the fullback Line offset. Ginn, Carr, and Thomas are the receivers and Kamara is in the backfield. Carr goes in motion from left to right and is lined up tight to the line. This motion is what helps set up the whole play. It’s a play-action where Brees will fake the hand off to Kamara to freeze the linebackers. Carr helps sell the run fake by simulating run blocking before releasing into his route. Carr will wait to run his route until Thomas is in front of him, forcing the cornerback to go around the safety who is covering Carr. The rub works and helps give Thomas more space away from his defender. On the other side Ginn will run a post, taking the cornerback and safety with him. This opens up the left side of the field for Thomas as he comes across the middle and then works up the field for extra yards.Coach Payton called an excellent play on Thomas’ lone touchdown reception. The Saints come out in 11 personnel with Kamara and Watson and call max protect (Kamara and Watson will pass block). The receivers (Ginn, Thomas, Carr) line up in a trips bunch to the left before Carr goes in motion to the right. The safety on that side comes down to cover him, signaling man coverage. The Bucs show a corner blitz from the offensives left, and Brees now knows he has a good match up on that side.When playing against a tighter wide receiver alignment, defenders in man coverage will use a first in/first out technique to help prevent rubs. The play call will take advantage of this. Ginn will run what is known as a pivot route; where he will release towards the middle of field Womens Kaden Elliss 2019 Jersey , before planting his foot and cutting back to the sideline. This route exploits the first in/first out technique by getting the inside defender to cheat down to defend Ginn who appears to be breaking inside. Thomas is able to run behind the defender and make an easy catch for the touchdown. Thomas may not have had many big plays, but it’s the little things he did that made him so effective and able to get open frequently. This play is a great example of some of those little things. Brees empties the backfield and sends Kamara out wide with Thomas in a reduced alignment. It’s a 3rd down with 2 yards to go. Kamara runs a go which opens up the outside of the field for Thomas on his pivot route. As soon as the defender flips his hips to run with him inside, he plants his foot and cuts towards the sideline, creating good separation to make the catch and finish strong with a stiff arm while picking up the first down. While he didn’t go up against the best corners the league has to offer and he may not see this many receptions again this season he displayed the skill will make him a match up problem next week again the Cleveland Browns. METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Even as Ted Ginn Jr. enters his 13th NFL season, the 34-year-old Saints receiver still considers his foot speed his most distinguishing asset.New Orleans hopes the former Ohio State football and track star can live up to the hype he himself has promulgated this offseason — namely by publicly inviting anyone to race him for $10,000 and by entering the “40 Yards of Gold” competition that purportedly will determine the NFL’s fastest player.“When you think about speed, and you come to the New Orleans Saints, you think about one guy,” Ginn said. “We’ve all got our labels of who we are. We’ve all just got to go out and man up to it.”Whether Ginn’s outward confidence is genuine or a means of self-motivation is difficult to discern.He is less than a year removed from arthroscopic knee surgery that wiped out most of his 2018 season. He said the experience caused him at one point to view retirement as a “50-50” proposition.“Going through the different things I went through and seeing the different doctors made me a little scared New Orleans Saints Wil Lutz Jersey ,” Ginn said.The Saints designated Ginn to return from injured reserve late last season and the move quickly paid dividends when he caught a late, 25-yard pass that helped the Saints defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16. He added six receptions for 102 yards in two playoff games, including a 43-yarder in the NFC title game.Ginn said he has not been formally timed in a 40-yard dash in “a long time” but suggests that he can still sprint that distance in 4.38 seconds or faster.He said his training and diet regimens have evolved as he has gotten older. He is less focused on weight training now and spent part of this offseason on what he calls the “Alvin Kamara plan,” working in Miami with the Saints’ third-year star running back on drills designed to optimize agility, balance and explosiveness. He has given up eating meat, opting for more of a fish-focused, “pescatarian” diet.“I’m just taking different precautions to try and stick in this league,” Ginn said. “When you get to an older age, I pay attention to the young guys around me and their different little things. Weights are great, but they’re kind of going out of style right now. When I was young New Orleans Saints Michael Hoomanawanui Jersey , I’d do weights a lot.“Certain stuff works for certain people; that’s what I’ve figured out in this league,” Ginn continued. “You just try to go out and figure out what’s good for your body. Once you do that, you try to maintain that.”Ginn played in only five regular season games last season, catching 17 passed for 209 yards and two touchdowns.His first season with the Saints — in 2017 — was among the best of his career: 53 catches, 787 yards and four TDs in 15 regular season games, followed by 12 catches for 187 yards and one TD in two playoff games.The Saints will be hoping Ginn rediscovers his 2017 form this season. While New Orleans added receiving tight end Jared Cook in free agency, the club stood pat with its receiver corps headlined by Michael Thomas and Ginn.“They believe in us,” Ginn said. “They believe in what they have.”Ginn’s enduring speed was evident in a 20-yard end around for a touchdown during 11-on-11 drills this week in one of the Saints’ last voluntary, unpadded practices of the offseason.The pads go back on during minicamp next week. The tournament-style, 40-yard competition featuring Ginn among two dozen NFL players is scheduled June 29. Competitors include Kamara Cheap Michael Hoomanawanui Youth Jersey , although Ginn suspects he’d outrun his teammate as easily as Kamara outperforms him during balance beam drills.“That’s what he’s good at,” Ginn said with a laugh. “Let’s let people stick to what they’re good at.”Ginn said he has not scheduled any one-on-one races for $10,000. He said his mention of doing so was more of a light-hearted, off-the-cuff public relations ploy to bring attention to his Pop Warner football program in his native Cleveland called Ginn Elite.“It came to be a huge deal, and now the whole world is all over it,” Ginn said. “But everything you try to do in life, you try to win. You try to do your best at all times. Just go out and do your deal, and whatever happens, happens.”
