24 Defending a Stack “I”

25 Base 3-3 Alignment vs. Stack “I” M N RL EE SB CC F

26 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 M N RL EE SB CC F *Extremely challenging to defend this play

27 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 M N RL EE SB CC F Playside End technique vs. Counter RB must change Course; crease doesn’t exist Corner is secondary force; Usually unaccounted for & can Make the tackle for a loss or short gain End wrong arms the puller off the rear end of the Tackle’ block.

28 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 M N RL EE SB CC F Backside End technique vs. Counter RB must change Course; crease doesn’t exist Corner is secondary force; Usually unaccounted for & can Make the tackle for a loss or short gain End chases pulling Tackle; if he encounters FB, he must rip through his block and pursue down the line

29 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 M N RL EE SB CC F End technique vs. Counter Built in calls: Pinch Anchor Torpedo Smoke Torch Slants Right Left

30 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 M N RL E E SB CC F Corner, Spur, & Free Safety Technique vs. Counter “Alley” FS keys uncovered linemen; Read BP step; plant, drive to alley with inside-out leverage. C keys TE; Read BP step; On TE down, plant, drive to alley with outside in-leverage. Spur keys TE; Read BP step; On TE down, plant, drive to force with outside in- leverage.

31 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 Lion, Mike, & Ram Technique vs. Counter M N RL EE SB CC F Playside outside LB (Lion or Ram): Key guard to near back; on any DOWN block on nose (even if split-flow), attack B gap, play opposite the End/pulling lineman’s collision; if you feel pressure from TE, fight pressure with pressure.

32 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 Mike Technique vs. Counter M N RL EE SB CC F Mike Key Center-guard to near back triangle; on any DOWN block on nose (even if split- flow), play opposite A Gap, then shuffle to fit; Rip under OT’s block

33 Stack “I” Counter vs. Base 3-3 Backside Linebacker Technique vs. Counter M N RL EE SB CC F Mike-Key Center-guard to near back; on any PULL away, step up, secure B Gap, then shuffle to fit; Rip under OT’s block if necessary.

34 Defending Power “I”

35 Base 3-3 Alignment vs. Power “I” M N RL EE SB C C F

36 Base 3-3 vs. Power “I” Lead M N RL EE SB C C F

37 Technique vs. Power “I” Lead M N RL EE S B C C F Check to Bear Front Slant to TE Corner fast fill on run read FS fast fill on run read Bandit contain Blitz; and Squeeze hole!

38 Defending the Double Wing

39 Base 3-3 Alignment vs. Double Wing M N RL EE SB C C F

40 Strategy 1 vs. Double Wing: Play Base. M N RL EE SB CC 4 x 4 F Minor Change-Ups: Slant the line left and right Run 4, 5 & Pressure with INSIDE Linebackers Watch out for: TE vertical releases Outside Zone Play Coaching Point: Free Safety must be the equalizer vs. run!

41 Strategy 2 vs. Double Wing: Walk up Spur and/or Bandit M N RL EE SB CC 1 x 1 F Minor Change-Ups: Slant the line left and right Run all 4, 5 & 6 man pressure Watch out for: TE vertical releases Outside Zone Play Coaching Point: Free Safety must Cover for Blitzing Spur or Bandit

42 Strategy 3 vs. Double Wing: Walk up Outside Backers into a 3 point stance & slant them inside (One or both sides). M NRLEE S B CC 2x 3 F Minor Change-Ups: Back off Spur & Bandit So they can play as fold Players for counter Watch out for: Counter Speed Option Quick Traps Coaching Point: Spill everything outside to the Spur & Bandit 2x 3

43 Strategy 3 vs. Double Wing: Walk up Spur and Bandit into a 9 Tech & Blitz them to wrong arm the pullers (One or both sides). M N RL EE S B CC F Minor Change-Ups: Back off Spur & Bandit So they can play as fold Players for counter Watch out for: Counter Speed Option Quick Traps Coaching Point: Spill everything outside to the Spur & Bandit

44 Defending the Wing-T (Based on Assignment Conflict)

45 Strategy: Corner & FS Key TE & Wing “Wing-t teams have traditionally had a great deal of difficulty attacking these defensive spacings because they have elected to stay in traditional wing formations with a tight end wingback on one side and a split end diveback on the other side. By doing this, offensive coaches are playing right into the defensive coaches hands. Why? Because the free safety favors the tight end side so that he can cover the tight end when the defense elects to blitz. As soon as the tight end blocks the free safety is in the run support and tile offensive coach has created another linebacker. The corner is also rolled up to the tight end wingback side and he is assigned to cover the wingback when they blitz. When the wingback blocks another additional linebacker has been created. By now the offense is hopelessly outnumbered but many coaches stubbornly continue to try to force the bucksweep and other tight end wingback plays into bad numbers.”-DENNIS CREEHAN Get your Strong Corner and Free Safety flying up to support the run when they get down blocks from the wing and tight end!

52 STRATEGY FOR PLANNING CHECK FOR FALSE KEYS FROM EACH OF THE 4 TRADITIONAL KEYS: WING/SLOT, FULLBACK, HALFBACK, LINE (& perhaps slanting to motion) IF YOU HAVE ONE WITH NO FALSE KEYS (OR VERY FEW), USE THAT PARTICULAR KEY UNTIL THEY MAKE YOU GET OFF IT

53 CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT IS A FOUR BACK OFFENSE

54 CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT HAS AN ABUNDANCE OF OPTION Down Option Arc Option Speed Option

55 UNDERSTANDING THE WING T COACHES HAVE TRADITIONALLY USED 4 “KEYS” IN DEFENDING THE WING T –WING OR SLOT MOTION (PLAY TO THE MOTION) –FULLBACK (IF HE IS NOT ON THE MIDLINE, HE USUALLY TAKES YOU TO THE DIRECTION OF THE PLAY) –HALFBACK –OFFENSIVE LINE –Problems occur with these because of false keys!

56 KEYING HALFBACK FALSE KEYS USED –WAGGLE –WAGGLE SHOVEL PASS –BELLY BOOTLEG –BELLY X BLOCK OPTION –BELLY KEEP PASS LOAD –SALLY –COUNTER XX TRUE KEYS (HB will take you to the ball) –TAKES YOU TO THE BALL IN THE BUCK SERIES? SWEEP-YES GUT –WAGGLE SHOVEL PASS –BELLY SERIES –SALLY –COUNTER XX

57 KEYING FULLBACK FALSE KEYS USED –BELLY BOOTLEG –SALLY OR BELLY TACKLE TRAP –COUNTER TREY BOOTLEG

58 KEYING THE WING OR SLOT: FALSE KEYS UTILIZED –FALSE MOTION BY WING OR SLOT KEY PLAYS (AWAY FROM MOTION BY SLOT OR WING 1.WAGGLE 2.POWER OPTION (SPEED OPTION TO TE) 3.SALLY (WING T SPRINT DRAW ACTION) 4.COUNTER TREY (TO TE) 5.DOWN (ON MOTION AWAY) 6.SHOVEL PASS 7.TRAP OPTION (ON MOTION AWAY)

60 Strategies that put you at risk: 2. Man coverage vs. Jet Sweep M N RL EE SB C C F *Offense can get into a compressed formation playside and run off the playside defenders with crossing routes.

62 3.BEWARE OF MAN COVERAGE VS. THE OPTION! (EX: DOWN OPTION). s B B ML F C *Offense can run off playside defenders with drag routes

80 Review of Successful Strategies Review the 4 base keys (fullback, Halfback, Wing, Slot). Check for false keys; If none or very few, utilize that key until they make you get off it. Check wingback trail motion for tendencies; if valid, use for a key Avoid man coverage vs. Option schemes Avoid wrong arm technique vs. Load scheme Avoid man coverage vs. Jet Sweep Corner & FS fill hard off run reads from wing and TE Slant to weak tackle with strong End and Nose Slant to Wing with strong End and Nose Slant strong with Ends and Nose Wrong arm the pullers in Sweep, trap, and tackle trap Mix up your option responsibilities Strategy 9 vs. Wing-T Runs: FS is flying up on run Read off end man on LOS
