Blue Raider 335 Defense | Gridiron Football | Sports

Blue Raider 3-3-5

Life experience at work
• Many military experts will tell you that angles
• •
not brute force is the best defense. This defense creates angles for the defense to run to and opportunities for them to gang tackle were the offense wants to run. Looking at this from the sidelines coaches will want to attack the what they see is a weak spot.

Alignment
• The alignments give the impression that
we are giving up the corner on every play but this is a pre snap read. We are not going to be were we where at the snap of the ball. The front 6 work together on controlled blitz packages while the C maintain contain, and BANDIT & ROVER run the field. Safety is just that nothing gets behind the safety.

Strength
• Now the most teams count the number of
people or a TE to make a strength call. We don’t we use wide side or a feel to what the offense is doing to make our determinations on blitzs. On a basic wing -t team we are going to blitz a will or a sam on 90% of the downs.

Defensive linemen
• This is a Will, the D line slants hard away from
the Will LB and the Lbs are moving towards the Will LB. The D line has to take a flat angle shooting for the next mans hip pad. Thus crossing the face of the O lineman. We never lineup in a gap and shoot it we line up on a man and then shoot the gap. Harder to know which way we are going to slant. Also the slanting causes Confusion on the o-line and we can either follow pulling G or meet them in the hole.

Corner Play
• Corner backs have outside contain and
must keep their back to the sideline. The idea is to get the ball carrier outside and then to cut up into the pursuit.

Rover/Bandit
• Rover and Bandit. 1 Rule. FIND BALL HIT • •
BALL. How many times have you had a kid that couldn’t follow a scheme for squat but he could blast folks? Here is the position you can play him in. After a few shots on their RB people will start looking to find him. Do not hesitate to have these players attacking at all times. THINK PIT BULLS not blood hounds. Pit bulls might not find the right game all the time but they sure will bite every chance they get.
