alignment to a nasty split/unbalanced twins
« on: October 31, 2011, 08:05:40 PM »
jr how are you aligning to a
'pro set' that places the te in a nasty split....where do you put your Sam backer and de?

also, how are you aligning to the I formation with two reciievers to the te side...making the te ineligible...(we call it bingo twins)?  thanks

Depends on game plan, but here are our standard split rules for SAM.

•   1’-2’ –  6 tech
•   2’–3’–  7 tech
•   4’–5’ – loosen slightly
•   >6’–  8 tech – “switch” call with strong end

A lot depends on whether the player on the one receiver side is a threat or not:

Move the end down to an outside shade,  drop S to normal LB depth (we never align him on an in eligible player), and slide B's to the strong side
