I know it's a screen and all, but is blocking legal in your league?

I love the one offensive guy who races across the field to the ball with a defender, and then cuts behind the ball so as not to interfere with the tackle.

If they could block, they wouldn’t bother with screens.

Have to admit it looks interesting. We’ve been a 46 team
The past two years and were planning on moving to the KB. I’ll be keeping an eye on this.

As you study up on the KB you will keep seeing this self correct thing.

Every D is going to blow an assignment but this D does self correct saving huge gains. I've seen it happen many times.

We struggled with a very good team that ran 100% Beast a few weeks ago.

Got down 12-0 at the half. Some scout film would have helped because they were toggling between a 7 man and 8 man blocking surface that was hard to pick up on initially.

So rather than relying on the NG to get his count right with the alignments we took a page out of the KB and played both DE's to the long side regardless....TNT played 404 over the C and flex'd the short side DT in a 2 point stance one yard off the LOS so he could maneuver.

                       T
 E  E   T    N   
    Y T T G C G X

or

                      T
E  E   T    N     
   Y T T G C G T X

We made the adjustment at half time and shut them out the rest of the way.

Any Updates ? Been trying to figure a way to morph these two defenses together and I am excited for this idea. I always loved the 46 odd front and NG play but the coverage, especially against teams that went spread and had a running QB, was a problem.

What is your DE's base alignment. Vs a wing T or flexbone look is your DE aligning inside or head up in the wing and going inside of him ? 46 DE would be outside of the wing getting up field for 2 steps.

When in Green what are the zone responsibilities for each player ?

It has killed off all Spread Teams but we play a REALLY good one tomorrow night and have a little somethin' somethin' up our sleeves when it comes to the 46 DE.

I will happily update you on Thursday.
