Eagle Eye: Carson Wentz Must Be Prepared For Arizonas Exotic Pressure Schemes

foster
After looking at Arizona's explosive offense and what the Cardinals will likely look to do against the Eagles on Sunday https://www.eaglesfootballgear.com/Eagles_Ryan_Mathews_Jersey, let now focus on the other side of the ball. Arizona defense is a high-volume pressure team that ranks in the top 10 in the NFL in terms of the number of blitzes this season. Arizona was known for its various A-gap pressures back when Todd Bowles was the defensive coordinator. The A gaps are the spaces between the guards and the center along the offensive line. Bowles was a master at getting extra rushers clean right up the gut at the quarterback. One of those blitz concepts is what we call the triple A-gap blitz Zach Ertz Jersey, where three rushers come straight up the gut. One of those defenders comes completely unblocked. Bowles was replaced by one of his former assistants in James Bettcher, who has kept the triple A-gap pressures as part of the scheme.  Shot 1 - The Cardinals still utilize Triple A Gap pressures in their scheme; they love to find ways to attack protections right up the gut
