This first one is a simple, straight-ahead run play to Marshawn Lynch. Sweezy (circled), is going to block down on his opponent, and Lynch is going to take the handoff up the “A” gap (between center and guard). Let’s see how it unfolds.
Sweezy has taken out his man, with a little help from his friend, otherwise known as the center. Lynch has a solid hole in the gap to make his way through.
Lynch posts a solid gain of four yards. Like I said, Sweezy is a decent straight-ahead blocker and can do the job in the run game.
We haven’t looked at the passing game yet. That’s next.
