Midline Lead and Rocket have the same motion by the Backside A-Back.
When running Midline Lead with a “Tiger” call, the 5-technique has to run with the Playside Tackle who is blocking the alley defender
If the 5 does not run with the Playside Tackle, come back the next play and run Rocket. Since the 5 does not run with the Tackle, the defense is outnumbered on the perimeter.
Here’s how this would look:
Play 1- Midline Lead with “Tiger” Call.
Midline Lead with Tiger Call. The Playside A back folds inside to wall off anyone who attempts to “fold” inside on the Quarterback. This could be the 5-technique (if he doesn’t run with the Tackle), the Sam Linebacker, or even the Safety. The Tackle opens, runs into the alley, and blocks whoever shows in the alley.
The 5-technique did not run with the Playside Tackle so….
Play 2- Rocket
