Blitzing the A gaps
« on: September 25, 2011, 10:50:37 AM »
5-3 today. We were killing them with 23 and 24 cross,and SPW then they started blitzing their Middle LB into A gaps. We started attacking the edges with 47 speed and screens and went mini and had real good success. What plays have others found to be successful in this situation.

Played a team that blazed a gap 90% if the time last week.  Never got through once, the blocking rules account for it.  If they are that dumb, 23 or 24 add power trap
