Played a team that we will play again. Beat them tonight, but they slowed us down. They will slant to create a lane for the LB to run thru. I have some ideas on how to make them pay, but how to block this?

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

6-2
                          Lb.         lb

               Olb...de..Nt......Nt....De..Olb
                       E. X   c. X.  X x c


The backside lb would walk up and tap one of the linemen on the butt and that lineman would slant away from where he tapped taking my God blocking OL away with him and LB would sprint up the hole. Need RBs to run faster and it won't be a problem, and pop pass would kill them , but any other solutions?
Defensive built around 2 DE and 2 LBs. 3/4 DL were big.

16 pass= pretty much every play until he stops
Really easy play to put in

Taps stunts are nothing new
All you do is have your OL block their inside gap= whoever shows up there is who he blocks
Block the gap, not the man- our 7 call

What is a 7 call?

On the 2007/2008 season videos, I've seen 16 Power (7) and 16 Power (8)

In the WYF and 303 materials, I don't see a definition given to the calls.

Is 7 the domino/wash call?  And 8 to run 16Power a little wider if the DT is camped in the 6 hole but not as wide as a sweep?
