TE SCREEN help
« on: October 05, 2011, 09:49:00 AM »
So we face mandated 4-3. My TE screens are not getting much. I am seeing issues with DE over LT coming off and getting to TE along with CB and OLB. I tried having HB over to account for OLB but something is not feeling right on this play.

How far out should we have TE on this play? farther out? How deep a drop back should we take? Should I adjust WB blocking off the S on that side?

All suggestions appreciated.

I do not run this, but am curious as well.

When c, W, and E can make the tackle, it means they're still there.  The reason W is still there is because the defense is having him play the reverse and not E.  And that's also why E is there.  He's engaging your LT. 

The obvious solution is for LT not to block E.  As E now chases the QB from behind, WB nails him, giving time for QB to stop and throw.  I would send LT at c and pulling LG to W.

I'm not sure this solution will work either as you've four defenders on the right (T, E, SB, and C) to block and only three blockers with which to do it (FB, HB, and RT).  This may be why we don't see the old "TE Slip Screen" anymore - the 4-3 came along.

But it they're leaving c, W, and E backside, I would be running "36 Toss" all day long with center blocking back and LG pulling.

DC I think I keep coming to the conclusion this one vs a 4-3 just is not a good idea.  I think I would rather run pass left with a TE variant to come on 1 drag. The majority of teams we see vacate that middle of the field once they see pass or suck in on the 45 fake.
