Spill and Kill question
« on: April 05, 2015, 12:27:33 PM »
If the TE's first step is back to try to ride the DE into the backfield, how does the DE play it?  Does he try to go around the outside, or does he go through the TE to get to the nearest-deepest back?

The purpose of the DE taking his first two steps straight up field is to get by a TE who bucket steps backwards. 
Hopefully, your DE's two steps overcomes the TE's one.

If not, the DE "grabs grass" per the manual and rips by the TE on track to "nearest deepest back."

We face this sometimes they ride out the end and run under

Since we are in youth and by design our force player is not the end we teach the inside club rip to spill it...this takes a lot of reps in practice and is the the third drill theyrun

That said we do sometimes play a 9tech end and a 7 lb lb reads this he rushes end knows to keep outside.

Great question btw lookin forward to hear other responses

And im a jerk and realised after posting the section its in lol my bad

I teach my 9s dc 46 ends/olb that beig said keep outside free dont over run the ball deep in the backfield

If the end buckets we treat him like near back attack and prepare to ricochet

No more beers for me tonight :p

If the TE is worried about your D-end, then your Sam should be having a field day in the backfield.  8)

Would the same logic hold for the WB?  If the WB buckets, ricochet him like a RB, and the CB comes up to play run in the backfield?

I've never seen a WB bucket.  But I suspect by the time the corner saw it and reacted that, unless the play is right at the corner, he'll be late.  It could be ugly if it's a screen to WB.

Our league tends to have teams that are very athletic, but they have coaches that run a collection of plays that appear as if they were copied off of John Madden football for Xbox.  That said, they'll have poor rules for how they block their plays, but I want to make sure I'm not making 'worse' adjustments by misinterpreting your instructions as I continue to learn your systems.
