Bingos, Peels, and Cops—Bud Foster’s Pressure Build-Ins to Defend Mobile QBs and Dual Threat RBs: The premise is simple. Find the back in protection and overload him.

Truth is, Bud Foster was already building in these add-on rushes from a man cover perspective for years. Foster’s system consists of man pressures from the Mike, Backer, Rover, and Whip/Nickel position. They can be run as single huddle calls or built-in adjustments based on formation.
