Interior Offensive Line
« on: September 19, 2019, 10:42:08 am »
Is the tackle position considered part of the "interior offensive line" for purposes of where a two-stripe player must play, or do they have to play guard/center?

Interior only means the 2 striper has to be covered up. So you could essentially have 2 Offensive Tackles that are 2 stripers on the same side as an offensive guard as long as you have a TE or WR covering them up on the line of scrimmage.

But as mentioned, they have to be covered.  We had that situation last week.  The 2 striper was a tackle and technically should have been legal, but there was no TE or outside receiver so he was on the end of the line not covered up.  This is an illegal formation.

They are asking about Mighty Might - a two striper can play tackle (or end) in MM and they do not have to be covered.
 
In 3rd - 7th they do have to be covered up by a receiver (cannot be an eligible receiver)
