Coaching 101: Hug rush
Posted January 13
This week's Coaching 101 breaks down a specific play used in the 49ers, Panthers game Sunday, the hug rush.
Early Sunday when Panther's linebacker Luke Kuechly sacked 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for a seven yard loss, Kuechly ran a hug rush.
Kuechly sat back and watched the center, when the center saw that Kuechly was siting put, the center moved his attention to the defensive lineman in the 2 technique. When the center shifted his attention, Kuechly bolted by him for the sack.
