SHIFT call for wingback
« on: July 19, 2016, 10:15:15 AM »
If a team lines up balanced double tight with wingback, would you call SHIFT? I'm wondering how I would slow down a power play to the strong side with the backside guard pulling.  Versus single wing that is unbalanced with a wing would you only call SHIFT or DOUBLE SHIFT? I thought the manual was saying to consider a wingback another linemen but I wanted to confirm that. Thanks

unfortunately your DE is going to have to blow that play up and make sure the play stays inside.

Work a lot on your playside DE on "squeezing the play" don't be afraid to have them force the play outside the TE where your Mike, OLB and corner can spill and kill.

If a team runs inside very well I will try to take that away and take my chances with a spill. Especially if he is a bigger back.
If he loves to sweep then keep it inside.

The DE is supposed to angle in sharp towards the BB and meet behind the tackle guard gap with either his blocker (BB) or the runner.
IMO the DE is very important to not only this defense but to this play from either the SW or DW.

Just my opinion

We don't shift on balanced DW. My DE is going to handle that with my CB coming up due to a lack of a WR.

OK thanks. So if the wingback tries to fan the DE out, he would just need to make sure he rips through the block correct?

From what I have seen from the WBs is unless its a sweep the WBs go up to safety level. On a sweep the usually reach the TE, but for the most part (and this is just what I have seen((which may not be much)) is the BB is getting the DE.
