Where did the term Stoning come from?



I'm extremely impressed with the DC Pro 43. WIth the limitations in place for defense in my league, this will be a great defense to run with.

I am curious about the term "Stoning". Before I ask my players to "stone the TE", or refer to my players as "stoners" in a certain alignment, I would like to know where the terms comes from.

I suspect a few parents will ask....

Never thought of it like that, Coach!

My answer is not official, but here's what I've come up with:

Essentially the C & DE are using the TE to create a "stone wall" to block outside sweeps, and therefore forcing the RB back to the inside for M and his buddies to clean up. And, I'll let my "stoners" know that if the RB chooses to "climb their wall" by going further behind the line of scrimmage to get to the outside, then they've done their job. Now that I think about it, the "stone wall" idea may be better for my 3rd graders than calling it "the hump"!!!

Of course, I'm a big Gen "Stonewall" Jackson fan, so my interpration may be a stretch! :)

Couldn't agree more, Coach! Great picture!

Although, I'm not sure General Patton would quite agree w/ your 'defensewins' username! :)

Incidentally, one of my top 5 favorite books of all time is Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War by Col G.F.R. Henderson. Unbelievable read. This book happened to also be one of General Patton's favorite books.

Among my other top 5:

Patton: A Genius for War by Carlo D'Este - far and away the definitive biography on Patton.

War as I knew It by General Patton - in my opinion the "Letters of Instruction" in the Appendices surpass the works/thoughts of Sun Tzu and Clausewitz

The Patton Mind: The Professional Development of an Extraordinary Leader by Roger Nye - Patton, like so many of us on this forum, was a voracious reader and he took copious notes from the books he did read

Crusade in Europe, by Dwight D. Eisenhower - incredibly fascinating look at the politics and leadership required to pull off such a massive effort

Still in the top 10:

Lean Thinking by James Womack - hey, I'm not all about war and football!!

Good stuff...

Coming from a civil war confederate re-enactor--Gentlemen I tip my hat to you . Stonewall Jackson was one of the best generals of the civil war, always looking to go on the offensive and always exploiting the enemies weakness. Striking where they aint--kinda like DC's wing-t.
