Default Re: insite into Zone Blocking Scheme

here's a link to Terell Davis in his second season which if i'm not mistaken is in the middle of Gibbs' reign.

it's not great but you do see at 1:04 a linemen in the "second level" dropping to the ground to seal off the backside pursuit! it's gonna be awesome!

Now that you mention this, it does kinda jog my memeory. But thanks for
jogging it.
And that's really very logical, I mean especially if one considers that a defender can't devote his undivided attention to bringing down the ballcarrier when he might be preoccupied with protecting his lower extemities from a cut-block.
I really wonder why this technique hasn't been outlawed ? Even though it
might sound like I'm lobbying to get it banned, I'm really not. Just wondering why a technique so controverial and unpopular remains legal ? For example,
I dunno how many times I've heard no less an NFL icon than John Madden
all but swear on TV about how much he despises it and says it shouldn't be in the game.
