This week we take a look at a mini-scheme from the 46 Normal Formation that gives you 3 Man edge Pressure from either side and is extremely easy to set-up!!! It also provides you with 3-4 Man Left A Gap heat AND Dual Edge Pressure!!!! All these plays are flipped and can be found in many 43 based playbooks such as the Bengals and Jaguars Playbooks!!!! Be sure to watch the entire video as we also showed Run Defense and Alternate set-ups for Cover 2 Invert!!!

ALL PLAYS ARE RUN FLIPPED FROM 46 NORMAL

Play Set-Ups and Breakdowns

*Video At Bottom of Page!!

The One Play that you really don’t want to run these set-ups from is Cover 2 Invert b/c the Line Spacing is different.. However the Video will contain alternate set-ups for Cover 2 Invert… The Main Plays we Will be using are Cover 3, Cover 3 Match and Fire Zone 3!

Outside Left Heat 

  1. Base Align and Show Blitz
  2. Blitz FS that is Lined Up Off RE (Left of Screen)
  3. Crash Line Left
  4. Spy Right DT and Coverage LE (Right of Screen)
This is a Great way to send pressure while still having 8 men in coverage! The spy will keep your opponent from rolling out to the right away from the blitz on you b/c as soon as they try you can click the right stick to send the spy for the sack!!!

Left A Gap 

  1. Base Align and Show Blitz
  2. Crash Line Down
  3. Hot Blitz ROLB (Left of Screen)
  4. Spy Right DT and Bluff Blitz LE (Right of Screen) *Optional
  5. User MLB as Shown
This provides you with LB A Gap Heat From the Left while sending as little as 3 People. It is more consistent when rushing 4 with the DE in the bluff blitz without the spy but either way will be very effective. The faster the LB, the faster it gets in!!!!

Dual Edge Pressure 

  1. Base Align, Show Blitz
  2. Crash Line Left
  3. Blitz Left FS and LOLB (Right of Screen)
  4. User MLB in A Gap as Shown
This is a high risk high reward scenario. Blitzing heavy like this in this years game is not something to do every play, but when mixed in with the rest of this scheme can be extremely effective and cause turnovers!!!!
