***The Nebraska Defense - Blackshirts 2022***


Recommended Posts

We’re still trying to play in some kind of nickel scheme where there are only two linebackers in between the tackles off the LoS. It isn’t working.

 

It’s like we’re playing with 10 guys out there when Tannor lines up in a half stance on the line and takes on a tackle and then we only have two linebackers in the middle. The two LB’s just get obliterated in the run game up the middle way too often.

 

When we get spread out we are garbage. Every team on the schedule can beat us because the film makes it so obvious; we have no interior at all.

Can someone who knows Xs and Os better than me explain this defense to me?  We run it a LOT.  The D line all shifts to the left and it seems like the LB #28 is responsible to fill the right side.  However, the LB has constantly gotten caught in the wrong place at the wrong time giving up big plays.  Here, why does he first go left, before filling the hole.  The delay makes it easy to block him out of the play.  If he fills it fast, maybe he meets the blocker more in the hole and jams up the play.  I've grown to despise whatever theory is behind this because it has given up so many big plays this year.

Part of the problems is the T gets washed inside leaving an extremely large whole.  If he even just holds his ground it makes it harder for fullback to find his block, the puller maybe has to bow back a little slowing the play down.  Tannor is also slow in setting the edge in my opinion.  He should see the pulling lineman and close ground.  probably got caught in a bad call expecting the play to go strong side.

Part of it seems to be he's reading the HB.  The HB slow plays like he's going across the formation, LB28 shadows that then has to come back to the hole.

 

Part of the problem - like @MyBloodIsRed16 said - is the DL on that side gets blown up.

 

But I think the biggest issue here is we have 6 in the box and they have six blockers.  All they have to do is get a hat on a hat and we're in trouble.  Especially when they have five on the line against three DLs.
