    Coach, How do you teach the safety to play leverage on bubble by #2? Imagine you have lost Falcon or Bandit to run action. For example 20p 2X1 running OZ or lead with the action going toward the speed side. Falcon has to fire even if he is solid. But #2 Bubbles…

    He is inside leverage…about 8×2…depending on ability level. Now there are a couple things that can help the Safety pre-snap that a bubble is possible. The Slot’s depth? Is the slot on or off the ball? I haven’t seen many bubbles by receivers where they align on the ball. Finally…the safety better not backpedal out of there. that is why we teach a scootch technique. the second the slot bubbles, the safety must drive on it. It is very simple actually once the safety understands the urgency of the situation. Obviously if the safety backpedals first or is late…then it becomes very difficult.
