I realize Brian has covered this formation extensively on the front page, but I didn't see anything about the strategy behind picking positions in the diamond. Obviously you need a QB under center to threaten a quick outside pass, so Devin Gardner or Denard needs to be there. I guess what I dont understand is why Fitz is deep with Denard either on the left or right.
To me it seems like if Fitz were on one side and Vincent Smith were on the other with Denard in the deep spot (where Fitz is in the actual formation) that there would still be the easy pitch option to the outside if Devin rolls out either direction but if it goes to the deep man (Robinson) there would still be a solid lead block from Fitz or Smith regardless of the direction of the play. Obviously Denard can block for Fitz if the play shifted his direction but I would assume this is not something the coaches would have him do in an ideal situation.
I've probably rambled a bit so here is the TL;DR version: What are the advantages to having Fitz deep instead of Denard in the Diamond formation?
