Once the rocket sweep and off-tackle complements have been established, it's time to attack inside and with misdirection to take advantage of overly aggressive defensive players who are trying to run to the rocket sweep.
Due to the speed at which the rocket sweep hits, defenses are forced to run and rally to the perimeter to stop the sweep. When teams start to do that, they become vulnerable to the inside game and misdirection. Blair Hubbard gives you rocket sweep examples, identifies the reactions of the inside and backside defenders and shows you when it's time to attack inside and with misdirection.
The backfield mechanics of this offense make it easy to attack inside with trap and gut and attack the backside with counters. This DVD includes:
- Diagrams of Trap vs an even and odd front
- Diagrams of Gut vs an even and odd front
- Diagrams of Counter vs an even and odd front
Hubbard will also show you how to take advantage of a running threat at QB or a "wild cat" athlete by going empty and adapting these inside complements and counters to an empty set. Utilizing a running QB allows you to spread a defense with empty formations or take advantage of what Hubbard calls bonus offensive players.
Hubbard includes many film examples of each off-tackle play, which makes it easier for you to break down the nuances of each play.
