Pressure Paths 101: The Falcons NFL Sim

Exploring the Saban NFL Simulated Pressure Package and Its Best-Practice Pressure Paths for Attacking Spread Formations

» As seen on YouTube! Now exclusively on

In the Saban NFL Simulated Pressure package, one of the best-practice pressure paths is called "Falcons" or "Field Stride." In this episode of Pressure Paths 101, I explain the various ways in which the simulated pressure attacks Spread formations.

The Field Stride path targets the offense's pass protection by using line movement from the field to open up a gap (B) for the field overhang while occupying the field Tackle. This path can be easily installed and aligned with most coverages, making it suitable for use at every level of football.
