    Re: How to Block Well in Football

    This reminds me of a George Carlin skit?!?


    When the play is over, stop blocking and get back into huddle.
    Yes, you certainly don't want your lineman wandering aimlessly all over the field.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    When the whistle blows, STOP BLOCKING. If you continue, that is a penalty and will make the coach and team to be mad at you.
    I think this was written by 10 year olds.

    What a ridiculous wiki on blocking lmao

    Move your feet. Don't just stand. The defender will most likely get away.
    I feel so much smarter now

    Re: How to Block Well in Football

    #1 is a very important step and I feel better for reading it.

    As I was reading #4 I'm thinking "I thought for a passing play I was supposed to stay at the line..."

    Then step #6 I was relieved to find out I did not read Step #1 wrong...I'm supposed to take a step back when pass blocking.

    Now I'm just confused on how to "pounce" on the guy in front of me while taking a step backward.
    I need to get this figured out as I would like to use it in the long lines at Wal-Mart.

    # Avoid clipping. That is when you hit the defender's back and is a 15 yard penalty.
    # Don't grab the facemask. That is a 10 yard penalty.
    # Don't grab the jersey. That is holding.
    How about some tips on getting away with these things?
    # When the whistle blows, STOP BLOCKING. If you continue, that is a penalty and will make the coach and team to be mad at you.
    LMAO!
