View Full Version : Beating the bump
07-15-2004, 10:51 PM
I went up today against a guy who took Oklahoma and spent every play bumping my receivers tight (I was Michigan). Most of my pick play patterns are pretty shallow, and I wasn't getting as much success out of the crossing pattern- my favorite way of attacking man coverage- as I expected. I know a lot of people use motion to get off the bump, and I'll certainly try that, but I'm curious as to other approaches (I mean besides going ace spread and running the ball all day).

The tightends and backs don't get bumped. I've also noticed that the inner most receiver on the trips side of the Shotgun Trips and 5 Wide formation rarely if ever gets bumped. I played my buddy today (USC vs Ohio State) and he uses bump and run coverage almost exclusively with a cover 2 man. I just started throwing to the tightends and backs on the angle routes over the middle. Also, I used the "Slant Out" hot route with inner most receiver on the trips side in the Shotgun 5 Wide formation with short motion and was able to break my receiver wide open on a couple of occassions. I practice against bump and run coverage on a daily basis in practice mode.

Is there a way other than the other controller to get the computer to call bump and run while your practicing.

Not that I'm aware of. You need two controllers to practice it.
