Eastern Illinois 35 - Jackson State 0
2nd Quarter 1:26 left
2nd & 10 Ball on the -20, Right Hash
The play before this it was 1st and 15. Eastern Illinois ran a tunnel screen to the number 2 receiver on the three receiver side. What would you do to attack this coverage?
I was at this game… And helped spring ball with this team with Jimmy G. I would do either y stick or Y corner, or Y cross.
QB Power or QB trap to the Tech. 3 side.
Im taking a shot down the field with a fade by #1 on the three man side having #2 run and attack the deep middle scene running a quick slant with# 3. it looks like man free across the board, second and 10 with that momentum Im taking the shot.
Outside guy on the left run a hitch and drive #2 on a flag to occupy the deep safety from helping out on the deep routes to the trips side.
Against this Defensive formation, I would run QB “DART LEFT” if they are going to leave MOF open (TD City if QB has any type of speed) ðŸ™‚
Bubble to trips, Stick to twins, Q draw off 1-back power scheme. Advantage to draw look.
Boundary- #1 hitch #2 Corner
Field- #1 slant #2 Corner #3 Take-off
Eliminate the single receiver - he is doubled. To the trips side - Rub route between #1 & #2; Quik 5 step Corner to #3
Look to hit the middle WR quickly off a rub. I like a drive concept (#1 post, #2 shallow under the rub of #3s dig) to the 3 wide side and run a 2 man sail (#1 outside go #2 on deep out) backside to clear out all 3 backside defenders. Read low to high beginning with the shallow quick off the rub. If heâ€™s somehow covered look dig. If safety jumps dig hit the post for 6.
2&10 here Iâ€™m running QB Draw but Iâ€™m running the #2 Weak and #3 WR Strong on Vertical routes to occupy the Safeties . Center and Guard double 1 tech everyone else pass set/fan. If you are worried about QB getting hit he can slide after picking up 1st down . Also clock will stop on 1st down
Looks like Man Under 2, Iâ€™m going to be aggressive and call an Air Raid staple, the 6 route. On the three WR side the #1 Fade, #2 Go and the #3 would bend his vertical to split the safeties (not a post just inside the safety his side to open grass.) On the two WR side the #Fade and #2 Slant .
Assume 2-man. Smash to both sides with #1â€™s each running a slant (conversion for press M2M). #3 is running a divide/post/seam-read. Can tag #2 & #3 to switch for a rub. Probably not necessary if you are up 35 points in the 2nd quarter.
Coach McKie, hereâ€™s how I would attack this coverage:
#1 - block db
#2 - bubble screen
#1 - 3 step hitch.
#2 - shallow cross, using #3 as a rub/pick
#3 - mandatory outside release go route
Assuming this is some type of man coverage, (possibly man - free), I would have the QB read the safety. If he stays deep, then throw the shack. If he comes down to help with the cross, then throw the deep ball to #2
Apparently, I canâ€™t count. With only 10 defenders in the picture, thereâ€™s obviously another safety somewhere near the far hashes. So now Iâ€™m assuming a cover 2 w/ man underneath. That changes my approach slightly.
#1 would be my rub/shallow cross guy, with #2 and #3 both running outside release verticals
#1 runs a post
#2 runs a wheel route
R.P.O. With QB Draw or Dart run with Perimeter screens
Iâ€™d run 3 verts with a switch/rub by #1 & 2 on the 3 man side. The two inside WR would run mesh. QB reads the switch to the mesh.
They look like they are in some type of man (guessing 2 man)Iâ€™m running slant/wheels on both sides with number 1 &2, #3 on the trips side will run a slant just like the open grass concept taking advantage of empty middle. Iâ€™m looking for a quick hit so Qb has 3 step with a hitch at let it go! If nothing there on the hitch up he pulls it down and run a draw because there is no backers in center of field.
Mesh wheel with wheel run to both sides.
If the defense has their timeouts its a different story than if they donâ€™t.
Scenario #1 No Timeouts left for Jackson…..Run the ball or run your screen game again to keep clock moving and get out of half without a turnover or giving the ball back to them with time left.
Scenario #2 Timeouts left for Jackson….Assuming the other safety is on Hash to the top of screen, I would be apt to attack the triangle to the bottom of the screen with a Slant/Bubble or Slant/Arrow combo. The #1 to the bottom looks like a “DUDE”, I would think he can wall the CB if the LB chases to the flat. This would get us to about 3rd and 3-5 yards and force a timeout. Come back with a Fly motion RPO combo 3 to 2 side and see if I can find some space 2nd level to get a first down and run the clock out.
5 vertical/ or 4 vertical and slot Wr to the bottom with a deep post
Screen and Go! Lock off the tunnel screen and put the game away.
