Panther Football
« on: September 09, 2017, 07:38:44 PM »
Season started today.  Won 32-0.  Gave up one first down and ended with -72 yards of offense given up.

Dline - we owned the line of scrimmage all day.  With 16 TFL's , 3 cause fumbles,  and 3 sacks.  We also had three holding penalties, two false starts, and a unsportsmanlike penalty on their offense. 

Oline -  we did a great job of moving the line scrimmage with the line moving the Dline 2 to 3 yards a snap.  We opened some very nice holes for our running backs.  We had two negative plays one from the QB holding the ball to long and an edge rusher got him off a backs block.  The other was a fumble from a third string RB.  First play from snap we had a 8 yard wide hole for our back to run through.

The kids did a great job today executing.  Staff is really proud of them.

2nd game of the year and we won 27-0.  We had a TD called back due to a block in the back from our LG 22 yards down the field on a kid that was not in the play.  First year player...great kid, will be a outstandning linemen in a few seasons...lots of growing to do :)

Oline did a great job making holes today.  Had several plays were the defense was five yards down the field backpeddling.  Ravaged them on sweep and bootleg plays.  We got sloppy in the 4th quarter as we started playing down to the level of competition.  Had a few things to fix in practice tonight with reach blocking footwork for several of the boys.  Overall 3 point stances, get off, and blocking progression is looking good.  We are improving every week.  Just finished up installing wedge with the line and it looks solid will use it in this game this week.

Defensively we did an outstanding job.  1 positive play for the entire game of 9 yards.  31 snaps - 30 TFL, 4 cause fumbles, 2 FR, 4 sacks.

Our defensive line has bought totally into get off, stay low, speed rip, bull rush.  We worked a great deal on spliting double teams and we did a really nice jobs on several occasions splitting the double and making a tackle for loss.  Our NT had a field day making nine TFL's at the snap on the QB before he even got the ball out of the center's backside.  At one point they had a triple team on him and was still collasping the pocket.  Our entire DLINE did a great job on Saturday and we got a lot of boys time on the dline getting experience.  My son had five TFL's and 2 sacks along with a hand full of assists plus he was  the RDE and managed to frustrate the entire right side all day.  -54 yards given up on defense.  Not sure what the numbers are on offense but it was over 250 yards of offense when I stopped counting.

One thing I am really tired of is officials managing the clock and not making calls that are affecting the safety of our players.  This particular game the opposing oline resorted to some very dirty play...  Facemasking, hooking around the neck, hi-low chop blocks, tackling our dline after the whistle (tons of late hits on our defensive players) and not a single flag or warning.  We had our RDT speed rip low and he was facemasked on one side and nearly had his pads ripped off his back from behind on the other side while the RDE got chopped while the TE had him hooked around the neck (literally a head lock)...not a single flag.  If a ref is not going to do his job just don't bother to show up... THe entire time the opposing coaches on the other side are goading these kids to keep doing it while the sideline ref sits on our sideline and doesn't bother to throw the laundary.    Their TE probably had forty pounds on our RDE and the WB probably had another 20 lbs on him as well so it wasn't like they were outmatched... We took a time out at one point and just asked for a warning so they could cut the chance of serious injury and it fell on inept/deaf ears. 

Any ways 2-0 not a single positive yard allowed much less a point :)

Ok I can see it now. When another team gets a first down they are going to celebrate like they won the superbowl.  ;D

This is awesome to hear Jack.

Are you back to running dw?

I am only coaching the OLINE and DLINE this year.  Which is a really nice break just coaching positions.  The team runs a split back offense pretty traditional no frills.

Sweep, Power, Dive, Cross Buck (FB), WB Reverse,  Bootleg, Bootleg pass, TE Pop in double tight with WB.  Just got them to add QB WEDGE (Keep) on both a normal count and a silent count.  They move the WB into Flanker with the FB in slot and run bubble and fly/seam and still run dive but now they have QB wedge as another option. 

On the line we are just blocking COVERED/UNCOVERED DRIVE and COVERED/UNCOVERED REACH (basically inside/outside zone) but not teaching the line to come off the double to the backer.  Once on they drive him to the backer level.  If uncovered and the covered defender is shaded far side the lineman works through the near hip of that DT and cuts off the next backer inside.  Very simple scheme but we are getting really good at running it.  For Power we run TKO but with no pulling backfield handles kickout (backside is MOMA).

Four schemes
C/UC - DRIVE
C/UC - REACH
POWER -(TKO w/MOMA backside)
WEDGE

We have a pretty solid line even with three new boys to football on the offensive line.  We have a dedicated 1.5 hour practice for dline and oline so that has paid off.  The boys have bought into what we are doing on both sides.   

DLINE we focus on stance, get off, speed rip, bull rush, splitting double teams (stab technique and drop technique), locating the ball and closing/compressing the backfield. 

I stress to them what our goals are as OLINE and DLINE every practice so if they make a mistake we circle around to the goals and if we are hitting them.

OLINE GOAL - CREATE TIME AND SPACE
DLINE GOAL - DENY TIME AND SPACE

Pretty simple and it all works with this group.

Well we won again on Saturday.  46-0.  Played a horribly coached team with good talent and some very big linemen.

Again allowed one positive play and it was a fumble rooskie play where the QB lays the ball on the ground at the snap and the WB picks the ball up and runs.  Got 9 yards after the QB got hammered by our NT and DT.  The remainder of the game was all TFL and cause fumbles. 

We worked this week a lot on our drive blocking scheme and pass pro and it paid off on the offensive side of the ball.  Our RB's were bouncing all their dive plays outside last week so this past week the staff spent the week focusing on inside runs (DIVE/POWER) and they did a great job of running inside and getting vertical.  THe oline opened hole after hole often with 3 to 5 yard holes at the point of attack. 

We ran wedge for the first time this week and got a 8 yard wedge for a TD.  It was beautiful it exploded forward for 4 yards and slowed and suddenly lunged forward after a quick second as the NT collapsed under the pressure of seven linemen collapsing in on him for the last 4 yards.  We actually got about 4 yards deep into the endzone.  I didn't get the see the rest of them because I had to take my son to the ER.  Long story...

Looks like we gave up -49 yards of offense.  Our last TD was off a Safety blitz and our S and BSDE hit the QB just as he was passing into the flat and our PSDE intercepted the ball and took it to the house for the final TD. 

3-0 and we face a really good opponent this next Saturday.  Good passing team that likes to throw the TE SEAM and the FLANKER FLY as well as a TE/FB flood.  This will be a good challange for us but I think our pressure at the line will give them some real problems. 

THere defense is going to have problems stopping our oline as they are small and not to quick on the get off.

Last week's game against the HP Cowboys was a fun one.  Still undefeated and still unscored upon.  Won 24-0.  4-0

The Cowboys gave us some problems.  Good QB with good receivers but they didn't have good pass protection and you need all three to be successful in the passing game.

On defense we allowed 39 positive yards after penalties, sacks and turnovers. 

Defense -
Spent the week working on getting our hands up once we broke past the OLINE's heels with our DLINE.  Also worked on path to the passer for our DE's especially on Bootlegs and Rollouts getting chest to chest on the passer and forcing him back inside or to take a deeper path.   We netted 6 sacks but the passer was on the ground every pass play.  He didn't get a pass off that didn't get contested behind the LOS and it really helped.  He got outside three times on us and but once our DE's figured out the path we stopped the rollouts and bootlegs and forcing either short throws for minimum gain or incomplete passes.  A few sacks happened as well.  Their oline just was not prepared for the pressure we sent with five and six men. Their oline did a poor job of picking up pressure especially from the inside at NT and at the DE spots.  We had several tipped balls due to the DLINE getting their hands up on drop back passes.  One got tipped and landed in the hands of one of our OLB's and he took it for six.  Overall a great Defensive performance and was really proud of our dline.

On Offense  the online played sloppy and often came off blocks early...drove me crazy.  Did a poor job of going through their rules especially our right side.  Even with tall that we managed to score several times and move the ball but it was not due to the line play.  We cleaned that up in practice this week.  Our RTE kept firing off and driving his guy back two or three yards and then would shove him and turn around and look for the ball... I probably lost my voice due to him doing it all game.  We were shorthanded so I didn't have boy to swap him with or I would have.  Hell stances were sloppy, get off was sloppy, finishing was sloppy....just really bad oline play.

My son got 2 sacks, 3 TFL's, 1 cause fumble, 1 fumble recovering, and two tipped passes playing DE.  Was really proud of him...worked on getting by wrappers (kids who just wrap their arms around the defender and hold them).  He flipped the kid twice and after that the holding, well the blocking stopped altogether.  Taught the DL to rip their off gap arm up in the oline armpit and step back hard with the gap side foot...basic hip throw.  Several kids used it and to good effect.  We are working on wrappers, grabbers, and pullers and how to get them off you.  THis is a season of teams just outright holding us and we are not getting calls.  So I am done talking to the officials..just working on violently removing the holders from our DLINE until they stop.

This week we played the Plano Wolves. 
Defense was outstanding posted another shutout so we are 5-0 and no one has scored on us and only one team has gotten positive yards on us so far.
Netted -56 yards and they only had three positive runs the rest were TFL's or SACKS.  Second half we just stayed in BASE or STACK and didn't make any blitz calls...

My son had 2 sacks, 3 TFL's, and a fumble recovery. 

We again worked heavily on getting holding linemen off us.

1) Grabber - we are using a quick swim...club the wrist with the gap side hand and swim the off gap elbow over the grabber's hands and drive the elbow into the wrists as you step throw the gap with off gap foot.  Did a nice job on several occasions they didn't get a clean speed rip and the OLINE locked up on their plates.. 

2) Pullers - oline grabbing the jersey at the arm or shoulder...teaching the dline to swim his arm over the pulling hand and then rip through the puller's wrist with the bicep/cuff of elbow.  Didn't see it used but my son said the other DE used it a few times on the far side when the OT was pulling him as he went by.

3) Wrappers - already discussed above.

Offense was outstanding.  Oline was firing off the ball, getting on their blocks, double teams looked really nice.  Several doubles landed on the laps of the LB's making huge holes for our running backs.  Ran wedge, inside covered/uncovered, and outside covered/uncovered.  Did a really good job of finishing.  Our RTE jumped off his block twice and did the spin around look for the ball...pulled him and had a little discussion on staying focused and finishing blocks and he was fine the rest of the game.

My son ran the ball three times for 48 yards and a TD.  Was fun to see him run the ball he normally just wants to play defense...

35-0.  5-0!


Next week we face a double wing/33 stack team so we will work on playing the pullers from the backside and frontside of the pull and splitting the wedge.  Should be a fun game I have several boys that play basketball for me on that team...
