33 Stack against 2 TE's and foot to foot splits
« on: October 17, 2014, 11:58:27 AM »
We ran the 33 stack last night for the first time. The other team wasnít very good so they didnít score on us, but, I do have some concerns.

What do you do when a team uses foot to foot splits with 2 big TEs? They sealed our DT and stack back inside with the TE. Then ran sweep with 1 or 2 lead blockers out on our Dog. Luckily he made the play a lot. But, Iím concerned about a team with better blockers and better backs.

Iím a newbie to this, so, any help would be greatly appreciated. Iím trying to absorb as much as possible as quickly as possible.

Zero split teams are tougher to work against with this D, especially if they can block :)

We played a 0 split team last weekend...what we worked on going into that game was fighting into their gap...club and rip, getting "skinny", and most importantly getting off the ball quickly.

Also, mix up your stunts, Thunder, Lightning, Taps, etc.
None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

Anytime you face teams with foot to foot splits pressure should come from the edges.

Bingo!!

A defensive clinic in north jersey last year

" smaller splits more shades from even techs, bigger splits more gap shades"

He then explained the handicap of an offenses running game with small splits which was actually very intuitive
