Cover 1 dog question
« on: August 11, 2011, 10:49:22 AM »
Jr titan,

Lets say we are running a dog with cover 1.  Will is stunting and the offense is in a pro set.   Weak side corner is going to pick up #1 and bandit is looking for #2 (first back out).  What if both backs block/move to the strong side so there is no #2 threat.  Since Bandit is in man coverage what would his pass responsibilities become?  For this question i am assuming that it is a pass, Sam takes #2, Strong Corner Takes #1 and f plays ball.

As an additional question if both backs set up to block such that there is no #3 what would Mike do?

I hope my question is clear.

I would think he would key blitz in that case.....blitz to his man (in case it is a delayed screen) if his man is definitley blocking sack the qb.

I thought about doing that but need to think it out.  If a team like to throw back that could be problematic but i like the thought.

What Nick said...

If your man blocks, you rush, BUT you can't ignore your key if he checks out, you need stay in coverage.

If Bandit/Rover #2 flows playside, he will cross key then pursuit.  He would have the second back out strong side (Mike has first back).  Offense unlikley to send two backs out the same side.

"They call it coaching but it is teaching...You do not just tell them...you show them the reasons"

"You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important."

“…you have no bad habits to break...We either coach it or are allowing allowing it to happen.”
