I play a little football for a league but I am very new to actually playing, I never played in highschool or college.
I primarily play DB and safety but a few times I walk up pretty close to the line for contain and goal line.
I have 3 major questions on coverage that are not covered well in rule books and just want to draw from all the experience of the coaches and ex players on the forum
1: Sometime my coverage is bad and I just stick with a reciver down the field facing them, I occasionally dont turn around for the ball but I watch the recievers eyes andhands and when he goes for the ball I just swat it out and he falls, Ill work on my covereage but is this pass interference? there is no contact until after the ball has touched his hands
2: A reciever playing tight to the tight end ran forward about 5-6 yards from LOS ( just for the example lets say is was 6-7 yards) and I also walked straight forward and hit him then he whined about it. Is this a penalty/pass interference? I think it was a run play but coulda been a pass that definitely went to the other side of the field if it was thrown
3. On the goal line, say on the 2 yard line I am lined up across from a reciever and play press do I get to press for the 2 yards to the goal line or 5 yards from the line of scrimmage (which would partially be in the end zone)
Thanks for the help, hard to find on the internet
