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)
- Put your linebacker on the left into a zone
- QB Contain
- User control the linebacker in the zone and hold the LT/L2 button before the snap
- 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.
