ICTV Film Room: Fade Beats Blitz

The Tar Heel defense fails to get pressure on the opposing quarterback in spite of sending a blitz.

North Carolina has struggled to get pressure on the passer in 2016, but contrary to perception it hasn’t been due to a lack of willingness to bring the blitz. The problem has been that the blitz hasn’t created enough pressure. In this play, Carolina brings six rushers, including a nickel cornerback, and doesn’t affect the quarterback at all, allowing a routine throw on a fade route for a big play.

Let's go inside the ICTV GIF film room for a closer look at the play.
