    How do you create your own playbook? The custom playbook feature is confusing to me.

    If you add one small adjustment you can get more consistent pressure with this. Crash your Dline (NT) left or right that will clear the way for the blitz right up the gut. If you crash him up middle the outside pass rusher will come free.
