The interior blitz may be every new DC’s original go-to call. But, they are very likely misusing them. Interior blitzes are a great addition to any playbook, and can range from the most simple to excessively complex.
On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss Interior Blitzes, their benefits and weaknesses, and when you should (or shouldn’t) be using them on Friday nights.
Football is a game of evolution, adaptation, and sometimes… cycles. Option football seems to fit into each of those descriptions, and has since the fall of 1964 when Coach Bill Yeoman told his Offensive Tackle “You can’t block him anyway, so just get out of the way,” and the defensive end was so confused that he ran up the field and out of the play… and the Split Back Veer Triple Option play fell into Coach Yeoman’s lap. Since, we have seen offenses adapt and evolve into spread teams that want to throw the ball all over the place, but they always seem to find themselves looking for “options” regardless if they’re pass or run based.
On this episode, Joe and Daniel discuss Option Football, what it is, how it can help you be successful, and how to incorporate it into your current offense.
Quarter Coverage, or Match Quarter, is widely believed to be one of the best pass stopping coverages.

In this episode Joe and Daniel discuss pattern matching in Quarters Coverage, the pro’s and con’s of the scheme, and when you’ll know if your players and staff are truly ready for the challenge.
The Double Edge Blitz, or the laziest call in Joe’s terminology, can help you when you’re in a pickle or when the offense just has your number for a series. But, there are better and worse places to call it.
On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the Double Edge Blitz, what they are fundamentally, the benefits they bring to your system, and coaching points to ensure your players know it and execute it to perfection.
