How to Stop the Read Option...

This is a really good article on how to stop the read option, written by Stanford's Defensive Coordinator Derek Mason. It is pretty long, and certainly not filled with any fluff. It has some really good breakdowns, explanations and concepts on the Read Option. There is also a good video at the bottom of the article. The coaches over at Stanford are all going to end up in the NFL as head coaches some day it seems. That place seems like it is becoming a football academy, which is a far cry from where it was less than 10 years ago. Jim Harbaugh and company really turned things around there, and now David Shaw is carrying the torch.

In this article, they don't say exactly which teams are there to "learn" how to stop the Read Option, but it is actually a class that Mason is giving to NFL coaches. Give it a look, it is very worth the time...
