When scouting another opponent, can you judge how aggressive an opponent runs their offense by the direction of their runs or how deep their passes are? For example, if a majority of a team's run plays are to the edges left or right, does that suggest they are running aggressively in their setting? And if a team is passing deep rather than short, does that suggest they are throwing aggressively?
If this is true, how have people set the defensive game plan accordingly? Not looking for everyone's secrets, just some general thought. Like if a team seems to be running a conservative offensive, can I be more liberal and run a more aggressive defense?
