WR BLOCKS ON ZONE PLAYS
« on: March 25, 2014, 10:02:15 AM »
On Zone runs = WR's MUST block Safeties (not Corners).  The O-Line gets you the first 4-5 yds. but in order for you to get MORE (break to the "house") = the WR's must "ear-hole" the Safeties!

"Push-Crack" to Safety (SEE ATTACHED):

If there is only one safety who does the other WR block?

Send both towards the one S (to pull both corners inside) & turn the offside WR back on the C late.

One of things we are doing new this season is actually running routes, instead of blocking. So, on Zone for example, the Playside will block exactly as you describe, & the Backside will run a combination(Stick, Bubble). On Stretch/Power it is the opposite the Playside runs the routes. This is something the Colleges started last season, we thought we would try it for the Spring. Last season we only ran Bubble as the  3rd option. We weren't sure how it would work, but we had seen it on film & spoken to college coaches at the clinics. The first week we did it our DC said we were cheating because he just couldn't cover everything. In our Spring game it was very effective & as of now we intend to continue using this system.

If you block to the Safety(s) it seems to me you would end up pulling two more tacklers closer to the football.

ANYTIME a team plays MAN - push/cracking from the corner TO the safety "TAKES TWO" (as Joe Gibbs put it).  Ties up BOTH men!

VS man we would call it 2 for the price of 1.

Anytime I can get my back 1 on 1 with a corner it's a win for us.

If you're talking about the Corners, Gibbs's theory is that it's two guys who can't tackle.

It's actually funny how running the route combo's works as well if not better then stalk blocking. It seems to create more space.

If your in twins or trips which playside receiver would block the safety in cover 1? We only see man cover 1 in our league.

This is going to sound complicated & it actually maybe. Depending on how many receivers are to the combo side, who runs what will change according to each game plan. Here's an example of what I mean, Stretch/Power to a single receiver he runs a smoke, 2 receiver #1 on a stick #2 on bubble, 3 receiver #1 on a mini fade #2 stick #3 bubble. Remember this our third option.

Now this isn't a matter of simply running off a defender, it's an actual combination. It forces  the defense to widen the running lanes.
