PostSubject: Trouble In The Flats   Wed Feb 17, 2010 9:35 am

Okay fellas I am having a little trouble covering the flats. Normally when someone is abusing me in the flats I go Qtrs Normal Zone Blitz(putting my outside DB's in purple zones & QB containing my nickel & dime backs) but this leaves the deep middle of the field open. Now I am not asking for plays to help with flats D, but I am asking what concepts &,or, dynamics you use for this problem. If anyone has any insight into this issue please offer your feedback. Thanks in advance.

Flats are a trouble spot for sure. If you can tackle well though, you will negate big gains. I like to bring a lot of heat so the downfield wont be open and user the flat. This way I can make a big tackle behind the line and deter the quick throw often leading to a sack.

Flats are messy though for sure. Also make sure to SLIDE out manually, any player you put on a flat zone. You want him almost on the sideline, when the qb rolls out, he gets sucked in.

"A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so"
