Blitz of the Week #1

This weeks blitz of the week has been used by many teams. The Baltimore Ravens have utilized this blitz to allow Ed Reed to pressure the QB. Recently the UConn Huskies had success using this blitz in this years Bowl against the South Carolina Game Cocks. This blitz has been a favorite of Bo Pelini at both LSU and Nebraska.

The blitz is designed to overload the middle of the protection. The 2 3 techniques (can also be from G with the 2i ripping across the guards face to the outside) occupying the guards.  The Mike is going first with the Will coming 2nd and the SS walking into the box and blitzing the open daylight on the midline. Here is a good shot of LSU running Gut in the Pelini days.
