BLITZ RULES
A & B Gap = Hit the 1st thing you can (1st level blitz) Flow toward you = attack now Flow away = blitz and bend (chase but GET FLAT NOW) C & D Gap = Attack outside in (maintain outside/contain leverage) Bats & Dawgs must communicate to know how to blitz Bats blitz flat if the Dawg is free (no contain responsibility) Bats contain blitz if the Dawg is locked-up Flow away = Hit QB (Waggle)/Check for reverse Flow to you = Attack outside shoulder of 1st threat

Basic Rules NEVER run around blockers, go through them If your gap is jammed, adjust and get to your responsibility Make something happen (never pause or 2nd guess)
