Avondale, AZ - In
American football or Canadian football, a blitz or
red dog is a team defensive maneuver in which one or
more linebackers or defensive backs, who normally remain on the
defensive team's side of the line of scrimmage during a play, are
instead sent across the line to the offensive side to try to tackle
the quarterback or disrupt his pass attempt. The name of the play is
taken from Blitzkrieg, the German strategy of "Lightning War" during
World War II.
Don Ettinger, a linebacker for the New York Giants, invented the
blitz during his brief NFL career (1948 - 1950).
Larry Wilson, free safety for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1960 to
1972, pioneered and perfected the safety blitz, a
play originally code-named "Wildcat." Defensive coordinator Chuck
Drulis is widely credited with inventing the safety blitz.
Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is widely
regarded as the inventor of the zone blitz.
