First to start off with some a quick defensive thoughts:
1 Mistake on Offense= 2nd Down
2 Mistakes on Offense= 3rd Down
3 Mistakes on Offense= Punt
1 Mistake on Defense= 6pts!!!
This is the stress of a defensive coordinator.
The following are the "Snake" Blitzes
Snake=Strong Safety Blitz
- Seam always plays #2 inside out
- Corners must always be ready to crack replace
- If your $ is getting cracked on the way in they check "Cobra" and have the corner run the blitz, play cloud force, and roll $ down to hard corner.
Against 10,12, and 22 personnel he is going to use "2 sloop" a form of cover 2 as the coverage behind the pressure.
Against 21 personnel he uses "Cover 9" basically a Fire Zone concept coverage
There is also the option of bringing the Free Safety from the weakside. Behind it, he plays a combo coverage with "Cover 2" to the pressure side and a man concept to the strong side of the formation. A free safety blitz is called Flash. So this play is Over Flash Combo in the style of Front/Blitz/Coverage.
Note for the Free: The Free in pressure always follows the stick player and plays off his butt.
I love this last pressure, especially against a team that likes to run weak out of this formation. I'm not always crazy about end/"elmo" force, but here it seems as if it would work fine.
