All the talk about the Oregon Zone Read of the Three technique got me to start thinking. If a team were to add the fly sweep component to this type of play a team could get the five technique to play soft because of the edge threat. Additionally, through film study an opposing D coordinator would be able to surmise that the read key is the backside 3 tech. Thus telling that young man to play at the LOS and avoid penetrating the LOS. Which as we know is the number one thing that kills any stretch sort of play. Therefore, one could reasonably conclude that an offense through formation and motion could get two backside defensive players to play less aggressive then they would would normally play. Just my thoughts on the matter. I will let you know how it goes in the Spring.
