    A pancake block is when a O-lineman overpowers a D-lineman and puts him to the ground and falls on him.

    a pancake block has been more recently been called "knockdown block" and it occurs when the OL has beat his DL/LB so bad that he ends up flat on his back - like a pancake.

    Its in the Pit. O lineman vs. D Lineman. One of them pushed the other on his chest so hard that he falls flat on his back. Hence "flipping" like a pancake.


    Picture:

    ..............o o
    Mawae -> | | <- J. Ferguson (right after starting to push eachother)

    ..............o
    Mawae -> | __o <- J. Ferg


    thats a pancake. gotta love my new special effects diagram.


    refer all questions to football 101. i already answered this.
