cover 1 and the split 44
« on: December 29, 2012, 01:05:23 PM »
Coaches do you think the split 44 could be just as effective if a team were to base out of cover 1?  if so what would be your alignment rules for your secondary and lbs? example: corners on number 1, who on number 2? who on number 3? etc.   How would you play trips (alignment wise not technique wise)  how would you align to twins?  against two backs would you bump motion and verses one back run with motion?  thanks

    • Fred – Free; or #2 receiver to SAM side if SAM is stunting,  He will jump any vertical release by a #2 receiver.
    • Cornerbacks - #1 receiver
    • SAM– two receiver side: stunt or #2 receiver (usually the Tight End); one receiver side: stunt or first back out his side
    • MIKE – stunt or first back out his side
    • WILL – stunt or first back out his side
    • ROVER – one receiver side: stunt or first back out his side, two receiver side: #2 receiver.  Adjustor to trips
    • Bump with motion

JR,

This is a follow on question related to cover 1 rules.  In your diagram above v. the 2x2 what are the OLB's allignment rules?  We are pressing our corners up tight in bump and run, making sure no receiver gets a clean release.  CB allignment is inside shade with inside foot forward and working to take away/disrupt all fast-hitting inside routes and timing passes.  Talk to me about OLB play.  Allignment:  mirror depth of #2, inside shade and (as with the corners) take away or disrupt all fast hitting inside routes and timing passes.  Is this correct?

We don't press the corners.  We play an off-man technique with an inside alignment.  Same with OLB's on a slot.  Take away any 3 step route.

Thank you JR.

Our corners are real speedsters so the D Cordinator presses them up and they are jabbing the receiver before they can get off the LOS.  I can coach that but I am having trouble telling those OLBs that move out to cover the WB/Flankers/Slots how to allign and what to take away (e.g. the inside routes etc.)

I like the simpicity of denying any 3-step route.  Thanks!  Any other tips...I'm all ears.

Yes!  Only MAJOR problem, is if you align an ILB in the "A-GAP CYLINDER" - he plays HELL covering a HB on a wide "swing" route (PARTICULARLY if he takes a play fake to another back first - which he is NOT supposed top do).
