Well coaches, it’s pretty simple. If you get movement on the action key, which is the first defensive lineman inside of the read, you have a 90+ percent chance of winning the football game.
This is because once you move the action key one step beyond his God-given will, you clear the path for the B-back, and you get 4+ yards per carry. Then, the defense is either going to let you obliterate them and hope you make a mistake, or they are going to take the unblocked defenders (read and pitch key) and cancel the B-back.
Once this happens, the defense is now reacting to you and you’ve won the football game.
I don’t know if I’ve ever had a client say that they lost the game if they were able to move the action key one step back beyond the action key’s God-given will. The only exception is if there were major ball security issues caused by the quarterback.
So, if you’re going to go all in on one thing to establish a triple option, you’re going to go all in on getting the action key vertically moved one step behind his God-given will to clear the path for the B-back. Good luck.
