2Advantages of The Gun Defenses Have To Account For the QB As A Runner Every Play Becomes An Option PlayQB Has Easier Pre And Post Snap ReadsQB Already Has Depth In The Pass GameOffense Can Read Rather Than Block A Defender In The Run GameQB Works Downhill As Opposed To Uphill From Under CLinebackers On Their Heels As Gun Is A Pass FormationIn Two Back Gun The D Must Account For 3 Backs and 3 WideoutsIn One Back Gun The D Must Account For Two Backs And Four Wides
3Comparing The Gun To Under Center FDef Accounts For 4 WR and 1 BackDefense Does Not Have To Defend The QB As A RunnerDefense Can Defend The Box With 6 VS 6CRWMSCETTEFDefense Must Account For The QB AS The Second BackDefense Must Account For Four WideoutsIf D Account For 4 Wides, They Are Left With 6 To Defend 7 In The BoxCRWMSCETTE
4QB Pre Snap Alignment QB Aligns at 4.5 yards from the center Feet are slightly staggered with throwing foot slightly in frontHands are comfortable, with fingers spreadQB brings the snap through the third handQB Snaps Eyes to Read
5QB Footwork And The Mesh If The back is crossing the QB, the QB will take a flat step toward the back. We call this SHORT STEP, FLAT STEP.He reaches the ball deep and feels the bell of the back, snapping his eyes to his read.He rides the back through while making his read.“Squeeze and Chase, Pull and Replace”
6RB Footwork And The Mesh The back aligns 1.5 to 2 yards behind the QB, straddling the outside leg of the guard.If the back is crossing the QB, he will take a step opposite the QB, then get downhill.He must make a deep pocket, with the top palm up.The back must feel the QB read, and not snatch at the football.
7QB’s Rule: Squeeze and Chase, pull and replace. Read the Backside 5 TechniqueThe main concept you will get from this manual is the concept of reading the backside 5 technique. The QB will read the backside 5 technique. This allows the backside tackle to work up to the second and third level. Under center, the quarterback is not able to read the backside 5 technique, he is working uphill. From the gun, the QB can read the backside 5 tech and use his rule.QB’s Rule: Squeeze and Chase, pull and replace.If the 5 technique squeezes the tackle’s release and chases the back the quarterback is meshing with, the QB will pull the football and replace the 5 technique. This is a way of reminding the QB to get downhill. If the 5 tech does anything else, the QB gives the ball and carries out a downhill run fake to hold the pursuit. We drill this with our MESH DRILL. The QB’s and running backs work together getting their mesh down, while the QB reads the 5 tech.. We vary how the 5 technique plays in each situation as we drill the mesh and read.Mesh DrillDEIf the DE squeezes and chases, the QB will pull the ball and replace the DE. We want the QB to get downhill.CIf the DE sits at home, or goes upfield, the QB will give the ball and continue a downhill run fake.QBRB
8Diagram Of The MeshThe QB Takes A Flat Step To The Back, then a short step. His feet should face the Sideline, in a heel toe relationship at the mesh point.
9Same Side MeshIf the QB is meshing with the back on the same side as the call, his footwork will be similar to inside veer. He will take a short step, then get up in. We want a short step to the back, then the opposite foot working downhill on the Mesh.The TB will step to the QB, then downhill. He must try to keep his shoulder’s square.
10Same Side MeshQB works his feet to parallel, similar to inside veer footwork.TB steps to the QB, keeping his shoulders square.

30Slide OptionQB Slides To The Playside and Reads The 5 Tech. If the 5 squeezes, the QB attacks the next defender. If the 5 comes upfield, the QB shovels the ball to the Under Back.Use Veer BlockingPuts the five in another lose-lose dilemma
31Spread Gun 15 SlideFCCSWM$ETTEFrom The Even look, the ISWR becomes the pitch man. You can also bubble him and use the bubble as the second option. Keep the bubble behind the line as you have lineman going upfield.
33The Horses SetThe horses set is a set we used to get our QB on the perimeter. We ran the horses set with great success. The base play is Horses. We complement this play with Iso, and all of our read plays. We also run our zone play, and run play action off the horses. The horses set is designed to get angle blocks on our opponents.The Horses SetMotion
35Ace Gun 13 ISO vs. 30 StackF$NCCWMSETEFrom an Even set under center, you couldn’t run the Iso without motioning a slot. From the gun, you the defense has to account for two backs in the backfield, and still account for four wides.
36Getting Your QB In The Run Game Ace Gun 17 PowerF$CCWMSETTEFrom an ace set under center, you couldn’t run the power without motioning a slot. From the gun, you the defense has to account for two backs in the backfield, and still account for four wides.

54Pass Protection Schemes 3 Step Protections are a gap punch protectionWe aggressively pass protect to keep the hands downWe use a low hat to pass setWe protect the inside first and throw hot off blitzers
55Five Step (BOB) Blue Protection We use Big-On-Big Techniques in our five step game.We block down guys first, then up guys.We pass set and punch, dropping our outside foot.O-Line Must Keep Shoulders Parallel to LOSThrow hot off blitzersWe call our Blue protection with a number so everyone knows the number of protectors
56Blue Protection Blue 5 is a base 5 man protection. Blue 6 Keeps One BackBlue 7 Keeps In Two BacksStay tells the TE to StayBlue 9 Is A Max ProtectAll backs and TE’s are in routes and are not staying to protect.We must block down guys first.Vs. Even fronts, we account for 4 down guys and Mike or Will.Vs. Odd fronts we account for the three or five down guys. If there are 3 down, we get the 2 ISLB’s.
575 Man Protection This is a base 5 man protection. FC$WMCETTESThis is a base 5 man protection.We block the man on our outside shoulderUncovered has double readQB would check Mac to throw hot off Mike BlitzTE is hot off MikeQB throws to Flat Route if Sam comes
58Blue 6 Protection This keeps a back in to block FSC$WMCETTEThis keeps a back in to blockThe back has the Will unless he gets a nasty callNasty puts the back on the EMOLIf the $ blitzes, we go nasty and throw hotWith motion, QB would look frontside with no defensive adjustmentThe word STAY alerts the TE he will stay in to Block.MAX keeps both backs in.
