DB Fire 2 Press Right Side Heat

  1. Base Align Press
  2. Pinch Line and Crash Out
  3. Spread LB’s
  4. Hot Blitz LOLB (Right of Screen)
  5. Cross man Left of screen Slot
  6. Bluff blitz RE (Left of screen) *Optional

I recommend sending the pressure from the right against formations where the HB is lined up on the Left side of the formation! This makes this blitz quite a bit harder to block!

DB Fire 2 Press Left

DB Fire 2 Press Dual Pressure

  1. Base Align Press
  2. Pinch Line and Crash Out
  3. Spread LB’s
  4. Hot Blitz ROLB (Left of Screen)
  5. Bluff Blitz Your User LB
  6. Slide Slots Out a Step

 

This should be used sparingly as it does leave alot of ground for you to cover with your user!!! Mix it in randomly maybe once or twice a half, don’t get too blitz happy or you will pay for it!

DB Fire 2 Press Dual

DB Fire 2 Press Cross Man Coverage D

  1. Base Align Press
  2. Pinch Line and Crash Out
  3. “Cross Man” The two Slot DB’s
  4. Man Up Either LB *Optional

While i know Most Players know how to run this to an extent, I wanted to be sure that I at least covered it for those who don’t. It is really just a mix and match of who you man up and shading up, down, or not at all to confuse your opponent into a bad read!
