Re: Every team so far has run the QB zone-read, haven't they?

The d-line is doing just fine with the zone-read. If we give them the RB and play the QB with d-line, the running backs have a better chance of hitting the edge for BIG gains. With that, our LB's have to be able to close faster and take QB. We are getting spread out and the "box" is left wide open.
You guys ever heard of a guy.....Micheal Hamlin maybe?
That is why the zone-read didn't work too well against us. He was put into that half safety/half LB position and was able to stop opposing QB runs.
