MIDLINE VARIATIONS and diagrams

You could run all the formation variations but, in spread reality, the 2x2 formation has the best “bang for your buck”. This is also why I will only post the blocking against 4-2 and 30 stack. In the diagram,the RB is offset, but a pistol look would look great too! If they have more than SIX in the box you should be throwing the football (refer to my Football Math article). One blocking variation could be having the Playside tackle take a hard influence step and pop his head up to sell pass. The WRs can fake QUICK or BUBBLE screens. I have come to the conclusion that when a play is hitting inside, there really isn’t a need to have WRs run down field to stalk block when they can keep the DBs thinking by running a short route.

LINE BLOCKING ASSIGNMENTS for MIDLINE

PST: Short step back with right (playside) foot then drive out Playside Defensive End.
PSG: DO NOT BLOCK PLAYSIDE DL! Step down hard to inside gap, DOUBLE team block on D LINEMAN.
C: DOUBLE team BLOCK on most dangerous D LINEMAN.
BSG: SCOOP BLOCK on D LINEMAN in playside gap.
BST: SLOW BACKSIDE RULES: No one cross the face into the playside gap, work up to LB level.

MIDLINE versus 4-2





MIDLINE to the 1 technique

  1. Running midline to the 1 tech from gun is extremely effective. I have used a C / BS G combo to backside ILB in the past but now we are using a fold block where the C steps flat and handles the 3 tech while BS G loops inside and tracks the ILB.

  3. Coach - do you have any cuts ups from your midline from the gun?
