DC46 against the Beast
« on: November 24, 2017, 08:17:14 AM »
With all of this Beast talk, it had me thinking.  The thread where I said I changed the line play, those 2 teams ran some Beast. One mostly ran it and the other threw it in from time to time, and then alot.  The team who ran it the majority of the time scored on us 1 time each game, broken counter play, and we played them 3 times this year counting playoffs.  Mike is on their athletic QB.  All 4 runners are covered, and after Hit you man, they play football.  My Mike used to be my Safety so he's basically a Box Safety.  Watches QB and ball and goes to him or Ball Carrier.

   C     W  S        M            C

                     F


F on the DL is our athletic DT.  He was manned up on that inside RB that is directly behind the OL.

When we had our CBs at normal alignment, I noticed when they blocked our LBs the off tackle play was WIDE open.  Putting CBs 2 steps back and 1 step outside of the DEs, and have them blitz, was like a delayed Blitz.  Now if the BC runs wide DE gets him, if he sneaks inside on the off tackle play the CB or LB gets him.  Plus they are also bringing my athletic DT to the play every time too.

Since my CB was so far away and behind, they never thought about blocking him.  Now WE we an extra guy on every play.

I manned up my LBs based on their speed and size to their match as the game went on.  So no later than halftime, there was no more counting.  You have #7, you have #5, you have #21 and if he's out, #4, and you have #11.

Oh yeah, our league you can't line up heads up on the Center, that's why I have an A gapper.

Speaking of A gappers.

For all of you that have a league rule like ours, no one can line up in front of the Center, do this...


O  O  C  O  O
  T   T      MPP

If I can get my MPP to do enough to get double teamed, I will have 2 studs on the other side.  One of the good DTs will be singled up every time.  My best DT is actually the tilted B gapper.  The A gapper will start getting penetration and the other coach will scream at the kids that they aren't blocking so and so.  As soon as they double the A, my best, most athletic DT is singled up.  Works like a champ.

Also, always put the A gapper on the Center's hiking arm side, which will mean possibly flipping the stud DT and MPP to the other side.

If I can't get the MPP to get doubled, I will flip the strength just to wake them up.

The MPP spot is get rotated every single play with up to 5 kids.

Those seem like awfully big bubbles to run through!

It looks like it, and that's why they kept running it.  Backside play once a game got us for a 40-50 yd TD.  2 of the 3 times was an alignment problem, (not being on the right man).   With 9 yr olds, and setting it up like that, we had 5-8 tacklers on the ball carrier. 

With the 46 alignment LB's inside foot on his man's outside foot, and being a mirror, it was really hard for them to block all of our LBs, if any.

The alignment told them to keep running it, but that delayed blitz from the CB which isn't really delayed, really cleaned everything up.
