Wanted: OLB (Outside linebacker)

For: Starting OLB position in exciting defensive scheme on talented NFC West team.

Ideal candidate will have a firm grasp of OLB concepts of a 3/4 defense. Able to win individual match-ups by using a well defined arsenal of techniques, not limited to but including: bull rush, swim, spin, and rip. Ability to win against double teams of OL/RB combination a plus. Candidate will show proficiency in pressuring and sacking QBs (proficiency based upon average of 10 sacks in season), including awe inspiring (NFL legal) hits that make grown men poo themselves.

While primary responsibility is making the QB dread life, at times you will be assigned other responsibilities not limited to but including: containment, dropping into coverage, shutting down the outside edge and public image. This may bring you into contact with opposing competition RBs and TEs. By all means, the poo mindset can be applied to them as well once they have the football. Since this is a flexible defense that prides itself on aggressiveness, the snot bubbles mindset can be substituted. These responsibilities may also at times bring you into contact with fans. At no time can the poo or snot bubbles mindset be applied to a fan, even if they have a football (or support an opposing team).
