Question for DC on facing tough 5-3 defense
DC I coach with CoachScotty who is on here alot. I am the HC/OC and we are running thewing T. Its your alignment and my terminology with about 50% mixture of your plays and myplays to fit my offensive scheme and coaching style. It has been working very well for me. Heis in Florida with his family this week so we havent had time to sit down and discuss gameplan.We are playing a defense this week that has shut out just about every team in the league.They are in first place and will most likely be who we face in our first playoff game in 4 weeks.They run a 5-3 defense and so far this year that is the defense I have been most successfulagainst. The problem is that they are sooooo dominating that it isnt even funny. They haveextremely disciplined linebackers that play 4 yards off the ball and flow perfectly to the ballavoiding traffic with their pursuit angles. They have tall athletic DE's that penetrate straightahead about 3 yards deep and take on blockers well. Their 3 interior D-linemen fire straight off the ball low and hard. And their corners stay at home until the ball is coming right at them.Team speed is a little above average, team strength is Above Average, and they play withattitude and powerful.This is the team we beat last year on their home field in the divisional championship game togo on to the superbowl and they will be remembering that. If you were to be facing a teamlike this where would you try to attack it? I know what I am wanting to do but Scotty said youare the guru of the wing T and i dont want to be wrong. haha.thank you for any input you may have--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------When running left, use the "slot" formation.Run "20 Midline" from base.Run "Slot, Pass Left". Odds are the OLBer won't pick up #1 Open (slot). You can run "Pass LeftQB Keep" with QB pump faking first to see who is open for sure. If the OLBer does follow theslot, run "Slot 23 Draw" where slot runs his #1 route. If OLBer covers him again, FB will run todaylight if DT's are in gaps.If their DT's align in your gaps, guards fold block to M. WB also hits M.On runs right, pass release the TE ("Draw"). If they don't cover the TE, throw to him. If theycover him, keep running "36" because HB will hit air.My favorite play to the right would be "Super, 36 Toss Draw". Their DE takes himself ouf theplay. The Sam LBer takes himself ouf the play chasing the TE. If DT's are in G/T gap, M isdoubleteamed, and safety has LG and LT to get through.Throw "HB Pass, #2 Open".Again, if DT's are in gaps, run "24" (no "draw") and "Left 32 Trap" with no one blocking M. LetRT and TE double Sam.Again, if DT's are in gaps, run "23" with folding guard. Also, "Right 45" (You can have QB tossto the HB who hands to the WB).If DT's are head up, run "Maxi, 20 Midline Trap" if you have a good center. If you don't, get agood center and run it anyway. This play will just kill them. Also, "Super Power Wedge." "Left32 Trap" and "Right 41 Trap" will also kill head up DT's.To get outside, "47 Speed". If it works, run the "56 reverse". To run right, either run "Flip 48
