The Huddle: Bravo spends a lot of time patiently moving the disc between handlers...are these back-and-forth moves, when going upwind, favoring the O or the D?
Mike Whitaker: Bravo's short handler throws were favoring the D as they were mostly swings that were not gaining yardage or putting throwers in dangerous hucking positions. Many of the completions were to handlers with no forward momentum. Short handler passes can be very effective if the throwers are attacking after they throw and moving the disc quickly. The Bravo handlers many times end up holding the disc too long to be dangerous.
Andrew Fleming: Sockeye's downfield defenders are fronting hard, and Bravo does a great job of moving the disc patiently and waiting for open shots. As a defense, you generally like to force the offense into taking more throws, especially in the wind. Bravo's handlers hit their resets well, and on this point in particular are able to move the disc off the downwind line quickly to maintain a strong throwing position. From there, Adam puts up an exceptional huck and uses the wind to bend it into his receiver.
