Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I used to hate Shanahan's Broncos because of their cut-blocking...but now I'm its biggest fan

Fredericksburg.com - Redskins' blockers cut to chase - page 1 FLS
"The tactic is a major reason why the Denver Broncos ranked among the NFL's top 10 in rushing during 12 of Mike Shanahan's 14 seasons as head coach. It also has been a lightning rod for controversy at times during Shanahan's career.
Because the technique requires an offensive lineman to block a defensive lineman below the waist, it puts the defender at risk of a serious knee or ankle injury. When executed properly, however, it is legal and quite effective."

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

On McNabb's TD pass I saw Trent with a nice cut block, it helps with the passing game too as it opens passing lanes.

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

Yea,we might as well enjoy it now.

As soon as Shanny's Zone Cut Block scheme sweeps ESPN's Cowboys all the way to the superbowl..we can expect a rule change to be instituded.

Specially,if we beat brady and the patriots in the big game...lol

I'm just kidding..lol

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

In high school we were taught to cut block, especially in pass protection. Therefore it is hard for me to condemn the practice. I can understand how defenders would be unhappy with the tactic, though.

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

It's really only dangerous if a defender is engaged, and I'm pretty sure it's a 10 or 15 yards penalty.

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

Shanahan learn that technique from Bob McKittrick old OL coach from the 49ers (dead). Just ask Howie Long how he liked it? He once threatened McKittrick to kick his ass because of it.

I knew you'd all come along. Just like you'd all fall in love with Chris Pronger if hell freezes over and he becomes a Cap.

Once you own something, you'll say you'll like it all along. (apparently one study about confabulation data showed such behavior among people.

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

You'll really have no idea of how excited I am for this season. For the first time in my life (23) we have a franchise QB and SB winning HC at the same time. Throw in a Defense like ours and we honestly have a shot at 10+ wins for the next 3-4 years. I truly think MS and DM will win a super bowl before it's all said and done.

As long as you don't cut a defensive player who's already engaged, it's fine and perfectly legal.

I also think your head has to be up or near the defender's hip, not down at their feet to be legal (and safer).


The 80s 49ers did leg whips and much worse tactics of blocking.

As long as we're not doing Flozell Adams-type blocks because we're getting beat...it's not an issue. Coach Shanahan knows what he's going, I have no doubts our players will do it properly and we'll have a great running game this year.

Although I am excited as well remember that it was one preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Thats like a top 25 school playing Appalachian State (Sorry Michigan). Do not get your hopes up too high. Try to "stay medium"

Ugh. I hate Chris Pronger. If he became a Cap, obviously I'd root for him, but that doesn't mean I like him. He is a d-bag, and that is what he will always will be.

And yeah I'm not a fan of cut blocking either but obviously we are going to be using it so I have no choice but to sit back and hope we don't critically injure some guy on D and have to face massive backlash because of it.

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

There's a difference between cut blocking and chop blocking. Not a big one, but there is. That slight difference also determines if it's legal...and if the opponent gets injured from it.
