I know its not really Bama related per se but it is football related and I remember seeing a thread on this earlier in the year. Anyways I know the mods will feel free to move it if its not appropriate, but I honestly couldnt think of a more knowledgable/helpful group of people to ask than the RBR community.
This season Im going yet again into my schools' intramural 7 on 7 league. Im the captain and the QB, and to be completely honest most of my teams have been like Brodie Croyle's KC Chiefs: they keep it close but rarely win. I think most of that lends itself to poor planning and strategy as we dont commit many turnovers and seem to move the ball decently but fail to finish on occasion and can rarely come up with a stop on defense.
So I was wondering what the Sports Bar's experience with it was. For defense I was looking at either a sort of cover 1 man defense with a rusher, a linebacker who can rush, spy or drop into coverage, 4 guys playing up in man coverage and a safety covering the deep zone. Of course from here you could mix up different blitzes packages to confuse the offense, try and force the QB to throw cross body, etc. But I also realize most teams run a mostly zone defense with two corners covering short zones, 2 safeties covering the deep zones, a linebacker with a similar assignment, and two rushers. The problem I have with this is it seems that the players each have to take in a lot more information and make more complicated decisions each play once the offense catches on and starts trying to fit routs between the zones or overloading the zones.
On offense I was thinking of just having a center who blocks every play, a tight end lined up directly next to him who would block mostly but could also straight run a route or break off, and either 3 or 4 WRs and a guy lined up as a HB. From there it seems to me if you could read the defense you could set up some very productive QB draw plays if the TE and the QB read the defenses and are on the same page if facing a man defense, and Im confident enough in my own passing ability to find the holes in a zone defense with only 4-5 zones against 4-6 WRs.
Anyways what do you guys think? Im hoping I can get some feedback here.
