Buck Wedge
« on: June 25, 2011, 10:16:26 PM »
Clark and others,

In the manual, you have a QB Wedge and a Buck Wedge. Does the TB have to change his blocking for the Buck Wedge? Or is the QB running a naked sweep?

Also, I was wondering why was there not a FB Wedge play? Can bring more power than a traditional QB sneak and eliminates the possibility of a botched handoff like a traditional FB dive. You can even have the TB, QB, and WB fake "47".

No blocking rule change occurs.  The QB is running naked (see the conditions for calling it on the bottom of page 33).

The QB wedge is more popular for three reasons:

1) The defense doesn't know he got the snap
2) The QB doesn't get many plays otherwise
3) The FB running forward behind a wedge invites him to run into his own line.  The OL men do not like this
