I have found when the players take ownership, & come up with some of their own calls they take more pride in getting things right.

I have developed a fairly easy way to teach IZ, we don't count, nor care about covered uncovered. Our playside tackle makes a call & off we go. It's easiest to think of it as a hinge on a door. The tackle is that hinge.

Ok now I'm really interested in how this works.

I will be using Joe's zone method as well. Was less for me to think about which means less for the kids to think about. Still getting some stuff down.

Luc would you rather backside just reach block if the frontside T/TE/H and then C/G are combo'ing together ?

To give a suggestion on the backside. Take your far arm and rip through the play side armpit of the defender. Use an upper cut and keep the arm up while sliding you back and butt play side. Think of it like boxing out in basketball. It is an alternative to cutting on the backside and creates a cutback lane. You would just use it from bst back.

Ok can someone pm/email how Joe does zone?

From what I understood of how Coach Joe do it, I will let them make their calls all the way to the back side Tackle.

More chances to have cut backs that way, and I am counting on this because I chose to teach only stretch and zone,  so I don't have to teach down blocking.

I know this is not ideal, but it is a trade off I am making to compensate for my lack of experience teaching zone.

I  am hoping back cuts on zone will somehow compensate for the lack of counter game.

Youre really making this way too hard

Outside Zone Cut-Ups terrell davis alex gibbs: http://youtu.be/KNa3gZfQfH0

Zone blocking is like a gel that adapts to fronts and stunts through repition.

Dont combo!!! You wont be happy they never work out the was you want it.

I call the combo and never get off of it.

Talk to michael...pm me

My zone blocking is stupid simple and inspired by michael.

Zone running is still gibbs via mountjoy and kelly
