X’s & O’s: Counter Read With Bubble

Having a Counter Read in place with a Bubble on the outside of a spread formation “constrains” the number of players a defense can keep in the box.  If a defense chooses to pack the box with defenders to cover the B-back, they expose receivers on their flank. With the Y coming across the formation, this can spell disaster for undisciplined defenses.
