I have a friend when ever he gets into trouble will run this streak play out of the Flexbone and it is real hard to stop :mad: I ran some Nickle and Dime Cover 2 Man he ate that up so so i went into a drop Zone and manually Controlled the LB with this i had a little more success( but i'm looking for a shutdown play) if any one can help let me know..

This is the play when all the 4 backers drop into zone as well as the 4 DBs, what i generally do is drop my coverage back , and spread my backers, i will then drop my two MLBs back 10 yards past the LOS, this will protect flats, with two OLBS as well as QB scramble, the two MLBs will relatively cover passes 7-15 over the middle, and the 4 dbs will cover deep, usually on this play if he lobs it high you will probably get 2-3 ppl at where the ball will land, if he is going 30+ yards, the only thing ur vulernable to is the run if you do this.

Husker, is this Flexbone streak ur talking about does it have a PA in it? Cause I use a similar play and have showed it to a few PPL and wondered it anyone in here is one of ur buddies?
The ENHANCED 4-3 Monster 3 will stop the Flexbone Streaks by the way.

No it's a straight drop back i'm not sure if he is HOT Routing his HB to the streak but i think both back run a streak by default..

I know what it is now. Its the Flexbone ALL GO. Usually the HB does a out pattern though the line, but hes probaly putting him on a streak and motioning him pass the guard or letting him go though the line.
