Best Way To Beat A 5-3 Defense?

5 posts in this topic

We run a wishbone offense mainly. Does anyone have any inputs on the best plays to beat a 5-3 defense?

Thanks

Off tackle power

Weak side quick trap

Counter trap

Power sweep

You can run pretty much anything against a 5-3

yup - about anything you want. Against a typical 5-3, your OG's are likely to be uncovered - you can use them in a variety of ways - double team the DTs or NT's, chip block and go for a backer, alley block on sweeps, pulls and traps.

If you have the QB who can do it, an occasional speed option is very effective. This takes some reps in practice to get the read on the DE correct and it does get your QB hit though. But, when run correctly, you can eat up some yards in a hurry.

Yeah, speed option will annihilate that 5-3 and if your qbs got a gun play action all day. If you spread one of your TE's, the slant should be open. Run leads off tackle all day.

The 5-3?? Are your 3 inside line man over the 2 guards and center?? Gotta clear that up first before i say anything...but i do know to kill a 5-2 would be to run right at their LBs.
