View Full Version : Help against 4-3, OLB blitz
07-19-2004, 09:46 AM
My buddy shifts the DT over to the middle, the OLB's blitz up the middle and are on my QB in no time. The only play that burns him is the HB streak. Any other plays that might make him think twice before using that defense EVERY play? My QB is getting killed.

How about hot routing guys into block and quick slants over the middle of the field...or basically anything quick to where the lbs vacate

I wouldnt go up the middle if he's bringing up the middle. I run the SG-2 Back Slot and SG-2 Back Split.
Two plays here, SG-2B Split, Speed Option:
1. Motion TE to the playside, this gives u a blocking G, FB, and TE. If he coming threw the middle, this should slow him down. He has to have those LB's to the outside to slow this speed option down.
2nd Play: SG 2B Slot HB Direct:
Once u get him shift the LB's to stop the speed option, now we run the HB direct to the right on him. Still motion the TE to the left side but the play will roll to the right side with the HB getting the ball and the FB blocking or ya.
I dont know if this work for you but this something I would try, I would practice these first in the lab, as u know if, he will have to bring up the safeties, which means u have the deep ball open once u set him up.

Thanks guys. TrojanNole - I really like the HB Direct snap idea because I know my friend will shift over to stop the option and when he does...BAM..Direct snap to Booker for a touchdown!

try a direct snap outta a double hb shotgun set, can be deadly or a double opiton

CORN, now u thinking, by sure to motion the TE, to fool him into thinking the speed option is coming.
Dont forget to find a good deep post play out of the same formation.
You should do fine.

Sounds like your friends suscribes to the filmroom. LOL. Sounds like a good case for YOU to get a subscripstion. I just got mine today! You can also try the PA read plays out of SG formations. Usually when I call that play and a LB blizes up the middle, he'll either try to tackle the RB or at least turn to make a play b/c he falls for the PA fake. Buys you 1-2 seconds if the LB has high AWR.
