49ers Central: Ravens' 'secret weapon' has Bay Area roots
Meet Dennis Dixon, the Ravens' secret weapon attempting to mask gameplay of Colin Kaepernick.
-- Brown and Joseph Nedney vessels start with you that. I got from a local from San Leandro high school right and I think Dennis Dixon. Place for the Ravens as a quarterback he is the guy who's pretending to be Colin can't permit for the Ravens so they can simulate what it's like to go after Kapanen. This Kennedy guy who has not thrown a pass in two years who is not Collins athletic. Simulate talent -- Well -- in this case it gets sort of stopped to say advantage Ravens because. This Dickson ran the pistol offense helping Eugene or -- for the University of Oregon so this is open is very familiar -- Just exit the bigger guy guy he's a mobile guy. He's built kind of like -- predict so it's it's it's advantage Ravens -- vacancy that practices scout team. But the one thing they won't get is a speed. That Colin brings the football game but yes this is that this is this is awesome for the for the defense to see this during the week but Cilic who is Colin cap -- record under and then you could be playing over the last week. -- I'm I'm I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree -- Dennis nobody is calling Kapanen except -- W as he's in the class goes on. There just isn't good out there and he can run some plays that he saw a cab do but. Ultimately that defense is gonna have to learn to take different angles on. Kapanen when he runs in those guys you watched him run by Charles Woodson are now 11 block so. So mimic the explosive speed to Kapanen cast is going to be very difficult for them to do during the week but. You know the passing them apart give me options and the reduction yes but the next closest thing just match. When they do discount quarterback -- -- into that tennis hasn't been effective in the past on teams you've been up W the reason you have a scout team has to emulate the -- you're gonna see. So we just to see the plays and Dennis Dixon knows how to do read how to put the ball out there is little Wanderers can see it took the ball out there pulling out right around the corner so it's not to be calling -- you can't recall it but to get the -- to get to see -- -- gonna see during game.
