Overload Blitz Concept

Watching the 2010 St. Louis Rams it is clear the influence Steve Spagnuolo has had on the development of the Rams pressure package. An example of the overload style of pressure the Rams are using can be seen in their game vs. the Arizona Cardinals.
In this pressure the Rams are using a modified Dime Personnel (3 DEs, 1 DT, 1 LB, 2 Safeties, and 4 Corners)
  • Nose is jabbing to help hold the Center's attention then looping for contain
  • The 2 DEs aligned to the left are dropping out and walling off hot routes
  • The Right DE is the Contain Rusher
  • The LB is rushing the A gap to the blitz and working to the other side of the formation to balance the pass rush
  • The SS and Right Corner are overloading the the B Gap and creating a 2 on 1 vs. the Back
 This pressure can be seen on film here.
