Six, Seven, & Eight Man Pressures

Bli tzin g Te chniques
 We identify our blitz technique with 4 terms: Inside or Outside & Level 1 or Level 2  An Inside blitz is any blitz that attacks a gap between two offensive players  An Outside blitz is any blitz that attacks a gap with only one side is protected by an offensive player  Level 1 tells the blitzer to attack at a flat angle and “Run the Heel Line”. He has no contain responsibility.  Level 2 tells the blitzer to attack the “Hip of the Deepest Back”. He has contain responsibility.

Insi de Bl it z Techniq ue
 An Inside Blitz usually attacks A, B, or C gaps.  The blitzer must expect a power running play when he hits his gap.  We use the phrases “Pads Low” & “Thick in the Hole”.

Ou tsid e Bli tz Te chnique
 An Outside blitz usually attacks C or D gaps.  The blitzer should be attacking from a position that allows for his quickest movement.  We use the phrases “ High & Hard” and “Stealing 2nd”.
