What’s the one play that makes linebackers question what they are supposed to do? If you said Play-Action then you are right. You see every linebacker has to read his keys to know what to do. If his key run blocks, he knows it’s a run and he fills or scrapes. If his key pops […]
Are your DB’s getting beat deep? Guess what? If you don’t do anything about it…it just get’s worse. Teams are going to throw more bombs against your. Your players are going to get even more intimidated about defending deep. The good thing is that it is correctable and you can feel much better about teams […]

He should climb to about 5 yd. depth but if he see's the QB tuck it in an run, he should go get a block.
