Base & Responsibilities
This is the basic 5-4 formation. Your Outside line backers must be you best ball players tacklers etc.. Your Defensive Ends mustbe the next best ball players. Then Middle Line backers. Nose guard, tackles, then corners.Responsibilities: Defensive ends must contain/box force the play back inside( defensive end goes after ball player when he see¶shis butt) Nothing gets outside him. Tackles and nose guard are to stand there man up and read (don¶t pick a side shed your block or grab cloth/Jersey, make a pile) Out side backers must read then react filling the off tackle gaps or outside gaps. Insideline backers do the same read and react looking for the offensive guards movements ( pulling etc«) Corners first look pass thenrun mainly watching tight end release for the pass. I didn't letter the defensive gaps I¶m trying to keep it simple. If you happen toface an outside running team you can cheat the corners out on outside shoulder of Outside line backer.
