Audible against Blitzing Defense

Moving forward, audibles and blitzes will only occur on “third or fourth” downs. Since I don’t abide by the APBA rule of allowing only one audible per quarter, the chances of an audible being called against a blitzing defense has increased. I have revised steps associated with an inside/outside run, draw play and screen pass against the blitz on a called pass play.  These procedures will be incorporated into my “Method of Play” during the next revision.

Inside/Outside run and Draw Play

  • Raise index by one (not above “A” index) and add one-yard to any positive gain.
  • Read two lines above card number on boards.
  • If card number is 1, 2, 3, 4, 13, 14, 15 or 28 through 36, USE IT.
  • If card number is 24 through 27, use line 28.
  • If line change would take you through 15, use 15.

Screen Pass.

  • Raise index by one (not above “A” index) and add one-yard to any positive gain.
  • If card number is 13, or 21 through 36, USE IT
  • If it’s another number, read 2 lines below the card number on the boards. Use the result only if the pass is incomplete.
    • Don’t include number 13 in counting lines.
    • If line change would take to or through number 21, use play result 28.
  • If the pass would still have been complete after the two-line drop, move up two lines above original card number (i.e., 6 to 8 to 4).
    • Don’t include number 13 in counting lines.
    • If line change would take you through 1, use 1.
  • If using “Yards per Catch” innovation, use “yardage adjustment” to end result of play.
    • For example, receiver has a rating of S2-8 (-3), 31 and the board result is a ten-yard gain. You would add one-yard for positive gain and subtract three yards resulting in a eight-yard gain.
    • Limit receiver to actual long reception. Using above rating of S2-8 (-3), 31, receiver would be limited to a maximum gain of 31 yards even in the line change went to 1.
