Facing a 4-4 this week.  They tend to walk the 4 LBs up close.  Read the manual on attacking a 4-4.  Any other thoughts out there?

Apologies it has been a LONG time since I read the actual Manual. SO my terminology is probably off.
If they are walking all 4 LB's up they are begging to get swept on. Don't go attacking any walled cities.
WBO Crack 27 Pitch
Pass Right 1,2
38 Crack Pitch.
Watch The Left corner. If he follows your SE. Call 38 Pitch 47 Reverse.

Hope that helps.

Work with your DE and WB on picking up their stunts, then like deadeye said, 38 should be there.

Really love JAILBREAK against the 4-4.

We ran if i remember a good amount of jet 25 power and used our 33 qto as a double read...jet left 32 trap ...and i think midline.

On te side... 23... rocket/base 38... wb on 24 ... and the 56 reverse

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

Stack or split 4-4?  Makes a big difference

How do the DT’s align ?
How do they align to your formation? 
What is their coverage?

I don't have a lot of information. Pretty sure they are not stacked.  DTs are either head-up on guards or in A gaps.  DE is in C gap with no TE, not sure about when TE is there.  A solid deep safety 10-12 yards out.

I would certainly want to "jailbreak" them just for the shocked look on their faces.

But don't do it twice in a row.  Let them wonder what happened.

Not knowing alignment of DTs, what is best jailbreak to go with:  QB or FB running.  This would be a new play for us this week.

QB.

Ask someone on the line where those DT's are before you run it.  You don't want them in the "A" gaps.  Give it 5-8 minutes practice.  Put center on safety.  If it goes, it goes.

Make sure you have an adjustment for when one is head up.
I faced what I thought (afterwards) was a "ghost" 4-4 where the DE aligned head up on my TE and it played havoc with blocking and plays to that side.
Have a "loose" call where he goes out kinda like a SE
and have a call where he blocks the DE in front of him if you need him to

You can put him in a super nasty and have him still block normal OLB but you may want to go HB over as well for that.

Just a few suggestions from a long day dealing with that. Sad that I didn't have the adjustments till after the game when I was analyzing the film.

I just saw this in our game Sunday.  It made for some sloppy plays, but we still ended up being successful in the game.

Thanks, I like your idea of "loose".  That added with SE Over gives another trips right look as well but still has 2/3 backs in backfield.

So does Qb do what he does in wedge?  If DTs are not in A gaps and headup on guards, then what?
