We have some Wing-I stuff (power, counter, dive, wedge, toss sweep) and some spread/jet stuff.

What would you run against this type of 4-4:
                S

C    B      B  B      B    C
      E    T        T    E
      E.T.G.C.G.T.E.
                Q          W
                F
                T

Against double 3 techniques, you should always attack the bubble over the center. I like automatic qb sneaks or fb traps.

Also, with the lb's that close together, you could probably run a counter trey and laugh as they collide into each other.

Outside zone, jet sweep, and toss sweep are also good plays against teams that want to trap their lb's that far inside.

FB Dive. We run ours with DT in the B gap unblocked and 9 times out of 10 he runs right by the play as long as the TB is running at the C gap. Guards and Tackles release up to LBs. Our Center will block man on man over but you wouldn't even have to do that.

Looks like a TE reverse would work as well.

This looks kind of like a split 4-4, but in my experience, they don't usually stack their outside backers like that.  What I have seen is the ends in a 6 or even a 7 tech, and the outside backers walked up almost on the line in kind of a 9 tech.  Usually pretty tough to run the edges on this if it's well coached, IMO.  Wedge, A gap runs and traps at the 3's, as someone pointed out before, as well as TE Pop Pass off of wedge action and flood pass will hurt this defense considerably.
