The amount of pulling linemen in the pros in combo with zone blocking

    The hawks do this maybe a few times a game if at all, generally when they are running inside zone power runs.

    But I have noticed the pro teams are back to using it more and more where a QB will turn one way from under center but the run direction is actually the other direction. And this counter action gives the offside guard and many times the fullback or an Hback time to pull and lead into the designated hole. The rest of the line looks to be zone blocking and combo blocking on the Dline and lbkrs.

    Dallas, seahawks, and packers are doing it a lot.

    I will have to look at Patriots and indy this coming week.

    I have wanted to see the hawks do it more with what should be our mobile guards, to pull into that hole and blast a lbkr or safety out of the way.
