Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: Big Dime 1-4-6

Play: Mike SS 3 Seam

Setup:

  1. Base align
  2. Press Coverage
  3. Pinch your linebackers
  4. Crash DL down or up (either way works)
  5. (Optional) Hold MLB in hook zone coverage over the guard or tackle

Summary: Blitzing from the 1-4-6 has always been great, and this year is no different. This play allows you to effectively disguise your blitz and still have good coverage behind it so that we can also bring heat from the left edge using the same setup.

Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: Big Dime 1-4-6

Play: Cover 2 Man

Setup:

  1. Base align
  2. Shift your linebackers to the left + globally blitz all LB’s
  3. Crash your defensive line to the left
  4. Move the MLB into the spot shown in the video so his blitz angle is aimed at the C gap
  5. (Optional) Put the LOLB (on the right side of the screen) in a zone of your choice

Summary: Being able to blitz from a nickel or dime formation is crucial on passing downs so that you can get as many DB’s on the field as possible. In this video we show you how you can get very consistent pressure sending 4 or 5 guys with great man coverage behind it.

Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: Big Dime 1-4-6

Play: Cover 2 Sink

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Shift your linebackers left
  3. Crash your defensive line to the left
  4. Re-Blitz the left MLB
  5. (Optional) Put the LOLB (on the right side of the screen) into any zone of your choice.

Summary: Much like with our last 1-4-6 video, this follows the same setup except instead of bringing pressure from the ILB, this is designed to bring edge pressure in the event that your opponent ID’s the mike as the MLB.

We then drop the MLB into coverage, bring pressure from the edge and force a scramble or rushed throw into coverage. This blitz is great because it brings one guy free only rushing 4 or 5.
