Madden School Film Room #4: Manual Pass Rushing

NOTE: AS OF EARLY OCTOBER, THIS CONCEPT NO LONGER WORKS

In this episode of the Madden School Film Room, we are going over a technique that allows you to get very quick pressure on the quarterback from right up the middle.

Check it out below.

Playbook: New York Giants

Formation: Nickel 2-4-5 DBL A-Gap

Play: Mid Blitz (And Others)

Setup:

  1. Put your linebacker on the left into a zone
  2. QB Contain
  3. User control the linebacker in the zone and hold the LT/L2 button before the snap
  4. Once the ball is snapped, wait a split second, release LT/L2 and sprint to the QB

Overview: This play brings very fast pressure from right up the middle. You can get a lot of sacks with it if you do it right.
