X’s & O’s: Shock Zone Blitz

This Shock Zone Blitz adds a wrinkle that brings five while positioning the FS to pick up the H Back and drops the WS into coverage. This puts enormous pressure on the W linebacker to cover the Seam/Flat, but done correctly, this blitz puts the quarterback into a position where he must make a quick decision or face the consequences.
