It’s my favorite play. And we’re talking about the biggest problem you’ll have running it.
This mailbag question comes from Zach, who’s got the Power run play in his offensive playbook. But the backside linebacker has been giving them problems.
This is a major focus in how I teach the blocking in our Pistol Power Offense System. The BSLB will screw this play up for your offense more than anyone else.
Took a lot of time and adjustments to learn this. He seems like an afterthought when you’re first putting the play in. Then you get smashed in the backfield repeatedly by a guy who does a good job reading the guard.
He hits backside, frontside… he’s killing you. What’s the plan? How do you handle that guy?
Listen to this episode of The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic to find out how we teach our players to block the Power run play, and how we put a major emphasis on controlling that backside linebacker so that the play keep moving the chains.
