DCWT Adjustments to Defense
« on: October 07, 2011, 03:36:46 PM »
Quote from Clark:

"And, BTW, you faced a smart coach last Saturday.  He had his center giving bad reads and was running spread from "I" with a really good QB.  It took me awhile to recognize while his corner was outside your SE, tilted in, and with a DE right in front of the SE.  He did the same thing to you my KB was doing to him.  I put the DE in front of a TE and then the corner outside reading him.  Heck!  I only learned how to do that last October and figured I was the only youth coach that knew how to do that.  He had you scouted big time to set up that coverage.  Because his DE was out so far with your SE, he filled the gap between your LT and SE with Will - Which then allowed Will (probably by accident) to cover Pass Left #1.

He did lots of smart stuff in that game.  You meet him again though and you'll win."

Question is. What should I adjust if I face this team again or if other teams pick up on it and start doing the same?

Thanks

Can you draw up what you faced ? I don't think I will have a solution to your problem but would like to see it in case we get a look like this and then can adjust based on the responses here.

The defense did this:

                                   FS

     C1             W         M            S                 C
                E1       T      N     T          E2
                O        O  O 0 O  O    O
                                  O                             O
                           O    O

C1 is watching the SE.  If SE blocks E1, C1 runs right at E1 and then cuts to the same side of E1 as the runner.  If SE didn't block E1 but ran pass (#2 or #3), C1 covered him.

Because E1 was out so far to make this read possible, W had to fill the gap between E1 and T1. 

C1 is not the problem.  If the SE had done as the manual says and NEVER blocked E1, and gone to "nearest deepest defender" (FS), C1 would have chased him and SE would have taken out two defenders, C1 and FS, just as the manual describes.

The problem is W.  He can cover "Quick Slant to SE".  He can cover "Pass Left #1 Open".

What would I do?  Besides fixing the SE, I would run "23" as "Slot 23", move the SE an extra yard out, let E1 line up on him (Taking himself out of the play) and send SE at FS and LG to M.  Everybody's blocked.

And I would take advantage of C1 further.  The kid is out there to key the SE.  So let him and E1 stand out there LOOKING for him because, on runs to the right, they ain't gonna see no SE at all if you call "SE Over".

"28 Power" was run once in the game (I have no idea why it was "28 Power" instead of "38 Power".).  In "SE Over", you get this:

                                   FS

     C1             W         M            S                 C
                  E1     T      N     T          E2
                           O  O 0 O  O    O                  O
                                  O                             O
                           O    O

C1, being trained to look for the SE, will probably stand there, look for him, and wonder where he is. 

Meanwhile SE blocks FS, TE has S, and WB has E2.  Everyone's blocked for the "28 Power".

You guys ought to look at that play.  I don't know where it is in the film but it was run like this:

                                   FS

     C1             W         M            S                 C2
                E1       T      N     T          E2
                O        O  O 0 O  O    O
                                  O                             O
                           O    O

WB cracked C2.  TE also blocked him.  The HB ran left as if he had the ball and the QB pitched to the FB.  C2 simply waited for FB to arrive and made the tackle.  This play maybe/might be a topic for discussion to help Solly because you won't find it in the playbook.  I think the actual play call would be "28 Power Counter" but FB never took a counter step.

Phased on that alignment 38 power toss and 36 toss sweep should both wreak havoc.

I should add how you can block the "23" from "Slot".  One is by "Slot 23 Power Trap" and the other is "Slot 25 Power".   You can also run "Slot 45".   

If your FB is good at reading the LT's block, "Slot 25 Power" is your best play (FB runs either 23 or 25 depending on RT's block while WB kicks DE and LG gets Mike.  If  he's no so good, run "Slot 23 Power Trap"  with WB kicking the DT ant LT and LG doubling M.  If Slot blocks W, you are off to the races. 

SE blocks FS on both plays.

That's exactly what it was supposed to be, but you're right he didn't take his counter step.
