Coaching 101: Pass Protection
Posted December 9, 2013
In this week's Coaching 101 we talk pass protection. There are a couple different ways the offense can protect the quarterback when he is looking to pass.
There is pocket protection, which is a 7-man protection. The bigs block the bigs, the center takes the Mike linebacker and the running backs take the two outside linebackers.
In a Mike protection or Will protection, there's only 6-men to protect, leaving either the Mike or Will uncovered.
