When a defense all out blitzes...why don't they press every time?

    And leaves its coverage guys one-on-one, why don't they press every time? The QB would have to make a quick throw, and even if the press is completely whiffed (I forget our CBs name on Holmes as a steeler?) it takes time away from the play, time the reciever is using not looking at the QB. If you agree to all out blitz u should be willing to let ur corners press.

    Caveat #2:
    If a CB is playing off, (like Kyle Sunday night), and its a short throw, DON'T go up to reciever, plant ur feet, wait for him to turn, and THEN attempt a tackle. Doing this allows the WR to recover, look upfield, and have chance to make move. Simply blast towards him and explode. If the WR somehow recovers it will prob take longer for that move, allowing other defenders to get there.

    1) If you blitz (send an extra rusher) any way other than zone blitzing you are playing man.

    2) The other guys get paid too.

    There was no safety help deep. Arrington was playing back in anticipation of the quick throw to be in better position to make the tackle. He whiffed. The rest is history.

    Against an all out blitz with press coverage, most QBs just toss a bomb to their tallest/fastest/best receiver. It's a lot more likely that you'll give up a big play that way rather than by allowing the underneath catch and then missing a tackle, despite how things played out on that play.

    If the initial protection is there and if they diagnose it in enough time to audible, a quarterback will generally try for the bomb on the go route or the post. But the majority of the time, they'll just dump it off to their hot receiver, which is generally the RB running a wheel route.
