Your football fix for early April: Breaking down the zone blitz

5 Apr

Chris at SmartFootball.com did a nice job of analyzing Dick LeBeau’s zone blitz scheme, with plenty of pictures and some video to boot.  He also breaks down how Dom Capers implements the zone blitz for your education & enjoyment.

I’ve interviewed LeBeau & attended a Capers’ presser – both are defensive genuises who are a lot of fun to learn from.  It’s no surprise these seasoned NFL vets were the last 2 defensive coordinators standing at season’s end, facing off in the 2011 Super Bowl.

Chess Match: These defensive masterminds leave most Xs & Os vets in the dust.

Arnold Classic weekend 2011: Celebrities scheduled to appear at The Arnold Sports Festival include Ray Lewis, Tony Gonzalez & Franco Harris

3 Mar

The Arnold Classic website posted its official list of celebrities you may get to meet & greet this weekend, & perhaps get a photo op or autograph as well if the opportunity allows.  NFL headliners this year are future Hall of Famers BAL LB Ray Lewis, ATL TE Tony Gonzalez, & retired Hall of Fame PIT RB Franco Harris. 

The Governator will be making pit stops throughout the weekend; hopefully Schwarzenegger will hit the EXPO at the Columbus Convention Center while he’s in the 614.  Should be a great event!
