Look at relationship between the center and the rest of his line. That is called being recessed or backed off the ball.

If hes on the ground he not in the backfield ide tell my guy to splash him like a pro wrestler

If youre using red/white to make the best play call you shouldnt have to jump over anyone

Where were the DTs lined up, and what technique were they using to cut which OL?

Then why not just run around them?

When they're cutting, is it man on?  Because if they're just taking yours out 1-1 like that at those positions, I like those odds for the offense.

I liked the defensive tactic of crabbing or shoeshining across, not straight ahead, especially vs. teams that played 0 split on the OL, to try to get a numbers, positional, or matchup advantage.  But not everybody cutting everybody else.  What are your OL splits like?  If their 6 DL are all taking themselves out and there's space to run between them, I don't like the odds for their 2 LB to cover the remaining gaps against all your backfield threats.

Steve Calande linked video recently from here of one of his OL handling an opponent's attempt to crab him.  His player managed to move the opponent so no pileup would occur where the opponent wanted to make a pile, basically by holding him up to keep him on his feet.

If the defense is trying to cut straight ahead, you can use the opposite of the above technique by giving him enough space and then shoving his shoulders down in front of you, in which case you have the advantage of players on their feet vs. players on their face.
