My question is, what exactly does the "R" mean? The play diagram makes it look like the strong safety is blitzing, but the "R" implies that he's doing something else.




The line is slanting when you see that (R for Right, L for Left). This is a way to confuse blocking assignments and "cheat" to the side that you expect the play to go to (at least in real life, I don't know what impact it has in game).
