This is going to be the most comprehensive blitz thread you'll see on this site. I plan on not only explaining how to set up each pressure scheme but give a little history as well as show examples of them in real life when possible. Everything in this thread will have a real life equivalent. You will get no tricks from me, just good solid defense with a firm grounding in reality.
Before we get to the pressure schemes I must give up some terminology along with various other blitz information so that I don't confuse anyone with anything I say in later posts.
Mike - LILB or MLB, the number 1 MLB on the team.
Will - RILB in a 3-4 defensive scheme or ROLB in a 4-3 defensive scheme.
Sam - LOLB in both a 3-4 and 4-3 scheme.
Jack - ROLB in a 3-4 defensive scheme.
Fire Zone Coverage - 3 Under 3 Deep coverage that is often utilized in zone blitzes.
