General Defense Discussion / Re: Crossing receivers
« Last post by Bob Goodman on Today at 11:31:24 AM »
I've paid very little att'n to team pass coverage.  It's one of those things I've decided to leave to others for now, that I'd learn eventually.  I've avoided reading the coverages section here (haven't read much about passing O either), thinking it'd be beyond me to jump into.  However, I'm glad to be reading this stuff now.  Clark asked a very basic Q, so I appreciate all these basic As.

By week 2, your kids have a Pavlovian reaction to hearing it.
But how do they learn the correct rxn?  How do you drill it?

What you say is true, the other issue is what can this team do. Right now we can throw Stick, not much else. Yesterday for the first time we actually completed a couple of Slants. I was encouraged, but I still won't add anything just yet.

Sometimes coaches will fall in love with a play or a concept, but there is no way this particular team can execute it. The hardest thing is knowing what to trim.

We suffered through some very rough offensive outings last season.  Yet there were Flashes of accomplishment.  As such I hope to build on those this season.   I all starts with "Making The Catch".   That will be the early emphasis when practices start in July.

The other issue is while I may have alot of concepts in my pocket the number we run is solely dependant on what my team can do.

Bingo!  I truly love the sharing of information and knowledge, thats what this site is meant for.  The thing to remember about all of the information being shared is; how much of it can "I" effectively convey to my squad in the amount of time "I" have with them? So too, how much are they able to grasp and execute efficiently?  a 25 play Play Sheet means ZERO, if we cant execute any of them efficiently.  Best to have 6,8, or 10 you can run in your sleep!  My thoughts go to the D Line Technique question as well. 

I suggest that most HS Coaches have more staff and face time with their squads than any Youth Coach.  That means far more time with the Backs and Receivers, on down the roster.  As Joe eludes to in another Post, he works on once "Concept" at a time.  Stick, Verts, etc.  I suggest that we Youth Coaches are far better off "Picking a Concept" and working it for all its worth. Eventually that becomes an entire Series for your Offense.

ex:

RPO:  I can base on IZ.  I can throw Back side "Hot", I can run Stretch, I can throw "Stick", Arrow (Out), Swing, Screen, and I can Run Read from the same formation.  Thats 8 possible plays.  If I get real efficient at it, I can Swap Sides and run same.   Essentially 2 blocking Schemes for your OL and the only real variation is what the Backs and Receivers are doing on a given call.  -

DIG, SEAM, & Shallow from the opposite side is Pyramid for me. That is a hi/lo read on the Safety for us. We hit the Dig at the Nationals one year for a 65 yder.

I think it's about who & when you learn a concept, but there are no universal names.  Also I believe the concepts change & develop over time. I learned Smash so many years ago & it is constantly changing. As the defenses develop so do the offenses to stay one step ahead. The other issue is while I may have alot of concepts in my pocket the number we run is solely dependant on what my team can do.

In! In! In!

One syllable.  Shout it, attach to an action:

- If you see [X], yell “In! In! In!” and do [Y]
- If you hearIn! In! In!”, drop what you’re doing and do [Z]

Start making In! calls on day 1.  Police like a hawk.  Add Y and Z later.  It’s good discipline whether or not you anchor it to an action.  Conditions your defenders to be active-minded and communicate quickly and purposefully. 

By week 2, your kids have a Pavlovian reaction to hearing it.  Makes banjo calls, rat, etc a snap.
Same thing when we drill Pass Defense!  PASS! BALL! OSKIE! 

PASS...Ball is at QB's Face Mask.
BALL....Its in the air!

OSKIE!  Interception....Block Dude!

I posted how we run shallow in my section. We do run a backside post, for us it's a pre-snap read.

Joe

I like how you run this (I call it Drive), and agree it’s weapons-grade in 7s.  I run Shallow with dig opposite.
