I'm stealing this idea from NeuroticTruth over in Hard Knocks, I think it is a great idea quite frankly. Hopefully he doesn't sue me for copyright infringement. I think it's a good idea to discuss these things in a more organized manner because we see a subset of these opinions in the chatbox (man opponent X hot routes too much, etc.) or in our quarterly "stat" threads or what have you. Here are the questions: Topic 1: Offensive Hot Routes How should they be used? When should they be used? How often should you use them? What limitations do you hold yourself to with them? Do you feel they're over used? Do you feel the mechanic itself is overly effective? Topic 2: Blitzing How often should you blitz? Do you blitz to stop the run, get pressure in the passing game, or both? In what situations do you blitz? What do you see and/or use more, zone blitzes or man blitzes? What limitations do you hold yourself to with them? Do you feel they're over used? Do you feel the mechanic itself is overly effective?
