Play: FZ 2 Deep

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Press Coverage
  3. Spread the defensive line
  4. Shift the linebackers left
  5. Slant the defensive line outside
  6. User the blitzing Free Safety

Overview: Here we have a 5-man blitz from a Quarters formation that brings a cornerback free from the left at the quarterback. This formation is a situational formation and can’t be used all game. An opponent would run the ball most likely if you tried to use this all game. However, in passing situations this play is highly effective.

  7. Zone the left side of the screen cornerback
  8. User the blitzing Free Safety

Overview: Here we have a 5-man blitz from a Quarters formation that brings a cornerback free from the right at the quarterback. Again, this is a very situational formation, but when it is used in the correct spots it can be a nightmare for the opponent. This setup appears to the opponent that it is exactly the same as the blitz from the left instead this time we are bringing heat from the right.

  6. Blitz the Middle Linebacker
  7. User the blitzing Free Safety

Overview: Now we have a Cover 3 style 5-man blitz that is bringing pressure from the right side. All these blitzes look the same, so it will be nearly impossible for the opponent to know which side you are blitzing from and what type of coverage you are playing.
